Intensified here in the past 10 mins, stopped in Coventry so won't be long till it stops here, I'd imagine.

The snow stopped in Solihull shortly after eleven. Equated to about an hour & a half of pretty heavy snow, although much of it didn't quite stick to the wetter surfaces.

Temp is now 0.7C, with a DP of 0.1C

Rugby is more West than East, surely? I always equate Warwickshire with the West Midlands.

All rain here in Stratford bar a few snowflakes in heavier bursts. Most snow gone now, miserable and wet out there.

Here in Sutton Coldfield (NNE Birmingham) ilight rain at around 8.30, turned to moderate snow fall with some large flakes thrown in at around 9.30 then back to very fine cold drizzle around 11.15. The sky looks like it is starting to brighten a bit however the odd large flake has begin to fall again now.

I think we now want this cold wet front to pass us now as here in Birmingham only the centre and heaviest part of the precip band seems to contain snow flanked with light cold drizzle either side.

Joking I was! You could go in either or both really, you are next to Leicestershire and Northamptonshire and in Warwickshire.

Bad idea splitting into east & west, now we will never get to talk about snow in this thread

LOL

Well, I'm going out for a walk now whilst it's still white and snowing before it most likely rains.

Will report back in an hour.

Aaahh! This is much better. This is forum is for the West Midlands region. Warwickshire is in the West Midlands region. Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Shropshire, West Midlands County - i think thats all of them lol '

Ermm - can I just vote against it?

If there's a snow band travelling west to east or vice versa, its useful to be able to track its progress across the country by other members' reports of what's happening where they are.

And now, it also seems to be a lot less lively thread.........

I'm in Coventry City Centre and it's started coming down really heavily, whereas it seems anywhere more than ten miles East is getting rained on. As marginal as it gets for us.

Any idea on prospects for this evening?

It has picked up again here in north east coventry. There is a definite thaw on the trees though. I'm hoping that Hinckley will remain the right side of marginal even if Coventry can't! This East/West Mids split is awkward for those of us close to the border!

Edit: As I type the snowfall has slowed dramatically.
