I walked to the snowpatches on Cross Fell today, and although I wasn't able to take better photos than Stringy's from Friday, I walked along the northern escarpment of Cross Fell and got a good look at the patches. There are many patches over 10m across, forming an almost continous chain along the whole of the northern lip of the summit plateau for nearly 2km.
Despite the overcast and misty conditions and the cold easterly wind, the air temperature was about 5c, and there was noticeable melting of the snowpatches, so it will be interesting to see how long they survive, they might make it into May. The patches are easily visible from the M74 heading south, around the Gretna Green area.
Here's one photo, not great quality, you might just be able to make out a rucksack at the bottom right for scale comparison.
