On the cycle ride home from work, I can confirm there was some snizzle here. Very light but it could be classed as snow nonetheless!

I'll send a few around to have a chew on.... I'm sure a few N'w  Midlanders may have a number of hats they need to get rid of :hi:

 

Chin up Wolf :D

 

Ha ha. Lets hope for some decent snow this week.

We deserve it!

Is the MetO hourly forecast based off the GFS ?

 

Has just occured to me that intensity and time wise, the MetO hourly forecast for the Wednesday snow event ties in perfectly with what the 18z GFS charts are saying.

Still nothing here, not a flake today, whats gone wrong for Shropshire this time? Seems to have snowed in Birminghan, Notts, Cheshire, Staffs at the same or lower elevations but weve had nothing but rain.

Just had a butchers at the 18z. Anyone know who J.R from WWF/WWE is? Well that was my reaction when I saw the charts for Tuesday and Wednesday... "GOOD GAWD ALMIGHTYYY!!!" Haha. That is an insane run for the whole of the Midlands, Oxford included!

Now if we fast forward 95 years into the future and saw that chart again, I might actually be confident of it coming off ;)

Wasn't going to say it :whistling: but that's what my thoughts was earlier, weird how the met's update at 21:00 was almost the same as the GFS output!!!

Looking at the latest NNM charts it shows PPN coming in late Tues evening and hanging around until teatime Weds, at best 10cm...

But the devil is in the detail... I'm sure that'll change! http://www.meteociel.fr/modeles/wrfarw.php

Snowing here in Bewdley right now! Light and small flakes, but it's not just sleet and is settling gently on cars.

I did say the nmm had increasingly started turning the band of precipitation to snow in the last 2 runs and finally the gfs has caught on! !! Latest nmm is the same snow for much of the midlands! !

I think there's a few trying to turn the model thread into the Daily Express! I seriously doubt that there will be enough snow/rain to make any meaningful amount away from hills. The met don't seem concerned & that's good enough for me.

Ooh, good luck! :) Can't help noticing from an IMBY perspective, though, that I'm now right on the western edge of the snow cone. So maybe actually a slight downgrade for me from SM's first map. :p Certainly nail-biting time for the likes of Herefordshire and W Shropshire. Obviously things can and will change between now and then, so not getting het up.
