    Well just goes to show. Even up until about 1pm was showing a decent amount of snow here in the far south midlands. latest BBC and MET now show nothing for us. We snatch defeat from the jaws of victory once more 🙂

    Not so sure, Seems quite a few are going for North West only now

    I think south Midland may miss out! I am retracting my earlier guess, still think that Birmingham north will do well out of this. Time will tell.
  6. The midland is a big Place guys 🙂 Not saying that this is misleading but it is not really an accurate description of the affected area. I do think there will be further South west Correction from past experience of the GFS modelling but I suspect North West Midlands to be the current 'sweet Spot'

    I am down on the Worcester/Gloucester Border, pretty much as far SW as you can get in the Midlands. I am hopeful to see something the next few days but as others have already mentioned, keep your expectations low and hope to be surprised. Currently GFS is showing more Sleet than anything else, I would rather nothing than hours of horrid sleet!
  9. Down on the Gloucestershire Border, I am not sure if what we are seeing is a result of the easterly winds blowing snow inland off the north sea or are these small snow granules from the predicted storm Emma. Still cannot see how we will even get an inch out of this. Is emma due to hit Midlands later or is it already here?
  10. Just this fine dandruff falling from the sky, No moisture in the air I am guessing. Is this likely to change. We are quite far south in the midlands (Worcestershire/Gloucestershire border) but I have not seen anything resembling snow rates that will give 4 inches we were advised of. Not at all sure about this.......
  11. For the first time in a long time I wish I still lived in Abergavenny! I would be happy with that to! Working in Tewkesbury I am hoping its enough for a snow day
  12. @Glacier Point What are you thinking for Worcestershire (i am in Upton upon Severn, fairly near you I think) over the next few days GP? Looking at the Met and BBC latest forecasts we seem to be on the Eastern Edge of the precipitation with the heavy stuff missing us and going into wales and staying in the South West. Where would you anticipate to get hit the heaviest?
  13. I know it was just for fun, but still annoying how the heaviest snow falls in the Irish Sea!
  14. I know we should take precipitation with a pinch of salt but I am confused. We are seeing a cm or 2 of predicted on these charts and for the spine of Britain from the midlands south nothing at all in terms of precipitation. I am not sure I remember the last decent easterly very well (1991??) but will this setup really give the whole country snow or are we in the south and west of the country going to have to rely on a Low pressure hitting the block as per Dec 2017 before we get to see anything but cold from this predicted outbreak? This seems to be a more Easterly affair to me. Thanks in advance
