    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.

    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
