    There has been little or no snow melt here today. Very icy on the pavements. I do think we'll have another cold snap before winter/spring over. Probably a Northerly around Easter with wintry showers. Nothing substantial I don't think unless we get a slider. Overall, a fantastic winter with the following events: - 8th-10th December: special event with lying snow (8-10 inches) followed by another covering on 13th December evening - 26th-27th December: 2 inches fell which stuck around for 2-3 days -- 20-21 January: Falling snow most of the weekend with a dusting on the 20th. A temporary covering on the 21st -6th February: dusting of snow followed by falling snow for much of the day. Didnt really settle apart from on the soil and bins but nice to see 26 February- 3 March: Beast 1. Great snow event on 1 and 2 March. Significant drifting 17-18 March: Another great snow event. Average fall of about 4 inches with some drifting This winter has probably surpassed 2012-13 and the best since December 2010? Next event? Easter?

    So far so good here...I haven't been outside but looks like about 3-4cm has settled. Radar showing a shower stream that maybe looks like heading through North Birmingham/Walsall area. Harborne maybe a little too South but lets see

    Incredible winter for the West Midlands. On par with 2012/13 if not better

    Not to forget the couple of inches on 26-27 December too!

    Hope it's right but the Euro 4 was hopeless for today

    And it is still snowing here with the small flakes! A great event... All Birmingham schools closed tomorrow and chaos on the roads here! Cannot really tell the depth as a lot of it is in drifts.

    Something to watch out for on the models btw...I am seeing a little potential for a snow event end of next week with a southerly tracking jet and cold air coming back south. Could be similar to Dec 10 2017 event. Too far away I know but there is potential.

    This event reminds me a lot of Feb 8-9 2007. Totally different synoptics I know but that was a snow event on the Thursday followed by a complete surprise snow event the next day. Both events a Thursday and Friday.

    Haha yes there was so much negativity this morning. Keep the faith in Hirlam

    What an event this is turning out to be! Snow still coming down hard in Harborne. Good accumulations especially the drifts.

    If I am not mistaken, the GEM was touting this idea for quite some time. The ECM has picked up this signal. Would be incredible if it came off and a massive coup for the GEM

    Not just Arpege and Hirlam but also the GEM
