  1. Stumps - day two

    Mark Stoneman

    And that brings our coverage of day two to a close. A day that'll probably be better remembered for all the ridiculous weather - snow included - than it will be for the cricket.

    Nonetheless, shall we do it all again tomorrow?

    I'll be back, along with our BBC local radio commentators, to talk you through day three from around 10:55 BST.

    Until then, it's goodnight from me!

  3. Close of play

    Worcestershire 297-5 v Gloucestershire 380

    We're all done down in Bristol too. Here's BBC Hereford & Worcester's Dave Bradley to talk you through day two:

    "Another topsy-turvy day, a mirror of the first day, with Worcestershire recovering from 162-5 thanks to a stand of 135 between Joe Clarke and Ben Cox.

    "Clarke, still only 19, came in after Worcestershire’s collapse started when Moeen Ali went playing a strange shot to be caught behind on 74, when he looked nailed-on for a century.

    "Brett D’Oliveira followed soon after and Worcestershire lost four wickets for 42 runs in 11 overs.

    "Cox again provided vital support and, having averaged 37 last season, will be looking to push his average up this term. Jack Norwell was probably the pick of the Gloucestershire attack, although he bizarrely remained wicket-less."

  4. Close of play

    Durham 295-4 v Middlesex 389

    Snow has stopped play. I repeat - snow has stopped play.

    In truth, it's probably a fitting end isn't it? Durham finish on 295-4 in reply to Middlesex's 389, with Mark Stoneman's unbeaten 139 the obvious highlight.

  5. It's the final countdown

    We're into the final two overs of our two remaining matches. Any late twists?...

  6. Clarke makes 100

    Worcestershire 291-5 v Gloucestershire 380

    Worcestershire's Joe Clarke has his third first-class century, coming off 128 deliveries and containing 13 fours.

    Ben Cox is still next time on 55, their partnership now worth 130.

  7. And then there were two...

    Only the games at Bristol and Durham remain and, hang about, we may even have a century late in the day to tell you about...

  8. Close of play

    Somerset 99-1 v Surrey 463

    Marcus Trescothick

    That's turning out to be a belting, if not obvious, prediction from me at 18:00 BST.

    Now they've called it quits for day two at The Oval as well, with Marcus Trescothick 68 not out having earlier gone second on Somerset's all-time list of run scorers.

    The visitors will resume on 99-1 tomorrow, replying to Surrey's 463.

  9. Close of play

    Yorkshire 368-9 v Warwickshire

    And the match at Edgbaston is the next to go! Steven Patterson (62 not out) and Ryan Sidebottom (six not out) did a very good job in guiding Yorkshire to 368-9, following Adil Rashid's 63 earlier in the day.

  10. Bad light stops play

    Yorkshire 368-9 v Warwickshire

    Now they're off at Warwickshire too. I think we could lose a couple of games fairly quickly here...

  11. Cox makes 50

    Worcestershire 276-5 v Gloucestershire 380

    Ben Cox has now brought up a very fine half-century for Worcestershire - and a useful one too, given it's taken them from 162-5 to 276-5.

    The man with him, Joe Clarke, is also just 13 runs from his ton. Is there time for it tonight?

  12. Get Involved via #bbccricket

    Somerset 99-1 v Surrey 463

    Exactly the analogy I used this afternoon. It's all been a bit silly, really.

  13. Bad light stops play

    Somerset 99-1 v Surrey 463

    Oh dear. The players made it out on to the field, but then this happened...

  14. Durham 278-4 v Middlesex 389

    Thank goodness. Kevin, we're pleased you're still with us.

  15. The sun is shining...

    Somerset 99-1 v Surrey 463

    ... And play is set to get back under way at 17:55 BST at The Oval. A whopping 16 overs is left - we're going to be here all night!

  16. WICKET Brooks (c Ambrose b Barker) 2

    Yorkshire 352-9 v Warwickshire

    Shortly after securing Yorkshire's fourth batting point, Jack Brooks falls for two to leave Ryan Sidebottom and Steven Patterson (56 not out) left to eek out any final runs.

  17. Close of play

    Glamorgan 377 v Derbyshire 98-2

    Three down, four to go. That's stumps at Derbyshire too.

  18. WICKET Rashid (b Woakes) 63

    Yorkshire 343-8 v Warwickshire

    Adil Rashid's resistance comes to an end, bowled by England team-mate Chris Woakes for 63.

    Moments later, Steven Patterson brings up his half-century off 62 balls - having now been joined by Jack Brooks in the middle.

  19. More snow in Durham

    Durham 262-4 v Middlesex

    Mark Stoneman has seen it all weather-wise during his 181-ball innings - including snow. If you don't believe me, click here to watch a video.

    To the players' credit they stayed on the field, and Stoneman remains unbeaten on 126, Michael Richardson with him on 14.

  20. They're back on at Edgbaston

    Yorkshire 339-7 v Warwickshire

    The players are back on at Edgbaston, although it's still looking a bit glum out of our office window here in Birmingham.

    The matches in Durham and Bristol are the only other two currently seeing any cricket.
