Why are people going on about tomorrow! There is no snow forecast, just rain and strong winds! We've all see strong winds! Tonight's forecast by Paul Hudson and the bbc/met office txt looks very exciting for our region tonight!

Yes there is. Possible Snow from three to six.

Well that was ridiculous, one heavy prolonged snow shower over Huddersfield at around half past five, and it took me over an hour to do what would normally be a 15 minute journey. Cars slipping and sliding, crawling along, blocking junctions. And I am not exaggerating when I say there was less than 1 cm of lying snow. Would have been even longer if I hadn't been able to get onto the back roads where there was hardly anyone. Finally got back up to the village and it's 2 cms at most. Not melting though, and might get a top-up before it gets washed, and blown (!), away tomorrow.

BOOM blizzard conditions here

 

Snow in Leeds City Center! Heavy snow.

 

Remains to be seen whether it can cover.

 

No snow in Belle Isle (approx 4 mile south of city centre ), just a bit of drizzle again

Thundersnow here at 19:25!

 

There is now a sugar coating on the paths and everything is beginning to freeze hard. I had expected something today but gave up once the front had passed as showers from the west usually fail to deliver here, especially after dark. A nice surprise. Posted Image

 

The $1m question though is: will there be enough on the ground tomorrow morning to have my first now day of the winter? I would hate to have a winter without a single snow day - it hasn't happened since I lived in Pembrokeshire, 25 years ago!

Cul-de-Sac has thin cover of snow and plenty of sheet ice already. Just moved the car just in case for tomorrow. Will have a look at radar in a moment but saw a decent shower before but was towards north leeds way as backed up by arnott

Any idea on when the strongest winds will hit our region tomorrow?

Don't really want to think about that to be honest. I hate wind, it is really dangerous. Grew up on the SW coats of Wales and it was not pretty. Love other extreme weather but wind you can keep. I have big tree in the garden and it lost a large limb in December. If the direction for this storm is as forecast and the tree loses another limb it will come right through my bedroom roof. Not looking forward to tomorrow at all with the minor exception of perhaps having a snow day for my signature line. That would be small compensation though, if the tree does drop a bough....
