    still looking good for North Mids, meto and gfs charts show plenty of snow chances. 3-10 cm midlands more further west - snow almost down to south coast NW midlands does ok (quote from SM on ) and another from Nick Sussex An interesting few days coming up ! Putting aside tonights snow and in relation to the next low. At the moment the nw Midlands , the southern part of the Peak District and northern Wales look to be in a good position for snow . And of course not forgetting our fellow coldies across in parts of Ireland . So some positives there, Plenty of radar watching today, might even get up onto A615 Newhaven Road, but I am sure I will need a 4x4 for the higher routes. Bright start with plenty of blue sky and sun breaking through but now skys very milky white looking haha, sure sign of snow on the way. ❄️

    would you adam and eve it, first snow flakes of 2019 here in DE4. approx 8 landed on frozen car, and on the short drive to work saw 20 secs of flakes flitering down. haha, is it a sign of stuff to come in the coming weeks I hope so.
  14. another barmey morning here, heating still off, thick fog again, I,m sure I can here the grass growing. roll on spring, now.
  15. Boxing Day time for a moan. no cold yet, non on the horizon, even seen some talk about cold coming in FEB !!! snow drops are breaking through already, and Ive had to switch of the heating its so bloody mild. Took the dogs for a walk did,nt even need coats. thinking of mowing the lawn this week and I Iive in rural Derbyshire at close to 200mts SSW warming ?? rubbish. Even if it turns a bit colder with a bit of snow so what we would of had that without a SSW, especially here. every year we have the same, expectations from models and note happens, so what if we have 3 or 5 days cold weather in Jan or Feb. this winters already busted. i feel pity for those that live further South with no alevation, at least for me high ground of 300 to 350 mts is only a 10 min car drive, so at least I can catch HILL SNOW, thats if we even have that. GOD what a rant, this must be the worst winter here for 5 years or more, apologies for letting of steam but this winters already over here. (MY BIGGEST MOAN EVER) not even had a drink YET !!!!!

    well struggling with met office forecast, shows 5 hours off heavy snow here, but currently 2.5c can see big possibilty of freezing rain, so echos others views if that happens (the cars stopping on the drive !) last time we had that here it was chaos, as others have eluded to, all roads were closed for over 2 hours, we did live in a hilly area, the schools shut, it was pretty rough we had two people who fell and broke their arm in the car park, it was like a skating rink, but clear glass.

    snow on tops around here, and lying a bit. still have snow drifts under the walls don,t you just love GFS automated charts now showing over 40cms of snow for here next tuesday. Having said that met office 5 day has slowly upgraded snow chances but again that changes every few hours, but good to look at.
