Really quite poor conditions out there now, moderate to heavy snowfall been blown around in a gusty wind. Accumulating readily.

I don't know why I was worried this morning, moderate to heavy snow falling now in Nottingham. I need more patience LOL

How are things shaping up in Nottingham? Those echoes look excellent, and they are on their way here in the next 20 minutes or so. We already have an additional 2cm's from todays snowfall and the best seems to be yet to come!

Very well at the moment, heavy snow with big flakes as I type, if this keeps up for the rest of the afternoon could have some decent totals by tonight

I'm in Leeds and it looks like we are going to get what you guys Nottingham have so any reports as to the snow will be great.

i was worried this morning that we may not get that much in northampton. How wrong I was. Since midday it has bucketed down and is still snowing hard now. The met office were right for us at least.

Moderate snow in Wilford (1 mile south of Nottingham City Centre) for the last hour or so but the skies are starting to brighten. Has dusted the pavements and rooftops slowly turning into 1-2 centimeter accumulations now.

Significant snow here. All schools closed at lunchtime. Main roads passable with extreme care. 15mins journey home took me 1 hour.

This has been an absolutely amazing event here already. Had moderate driving snow since 11am and there looks to be around 5-7cm fresh accumulation on top of what fell last night and what was left on the grass from Monday! I didn't expect us to get this much in Leicestershire. It looks like we have got very lucky from this as the radar has showed moderate PPN stuck over us for a few hours now. While places like Lincoln and Peterborough are just seeing the start of it. This is forecast to last on and off into the night isn't it? And judging by the models and BBC forecasts... There's another band of snow forecast to come up from the South East on Sunday! This is already one of the best cold spells I have ever witnessed here and it's not over by a long way.

If the skies are brightening it's only a thin patch...

meanwhile its still coming down in bucket loads in Heanor. Thicker and thicker blowing around.

The term gets significantly overused on these forums, but we're probably half way to blizzard conditions here now. Gusting snow, strong drifts and the heaviest fall of the day has just arrived. Happy, happy days.

Snowing hard here, heaviest so far. Footprints filled in from when I popped out 20 mins ago!

WOW is all I can say!

We've had very small flakes all day but they've been coming down at great rates, especially when a gust of wind comes along! I'd say a general depth of 15cm now, but what is remarkable is the drifts - Along the road leading into Daventry there are several drift zones, one of which must have had snow about 3 foot deep...

Very strong echoes now knocking on our door, 5 miles to our South and West... I fancy their chances, too.

Here in Moulton Northants we seem to have been under the same radar echo for a couple of hours which has given us approaching 10cm
