A cold clear day, With everything still frozen. A few shots while out walking earlier. Temp 0.4c Dp -1.9c WC 0.2c

METO should have followed the map 

Great Longstone at 11.00am this morning pretty difficult journey, what with fog and blowing snow very tricky approx. 20 to 25cms   also plenty of vids from Beeley Moor most are at 250m to 350mtrs

Overnight low of -4.0°C here in Solihull. Currently 0.6°C with a Dp of -0.3°C

 

Some promising developments overnight, it seems. Kudos to MIA for spotting the low forming over southern Ireland yesterday evening.

Looking good.. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/#?tab=warnings&regionName=em&fcTime=1421712000

 

Issued at:

An area of snow is expected to extend northeastwards from parts of Wales across the Midlands and into parts of northern England on Tuesday evening and night, persisting into Wednesday morning. Accumulations of 3-8 cm are likely in places, perhaps 10-15 cm very locally on high ground. The snow should ease gradually through Wednesday morning.

The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to transport. A complex frontal system is running into the UK from the west and is coming up against a stagnant cold airmass on its forward flank over central and eastern areas. Rain arriving in westernmost areas will readily turn to snow as it comes inland later on Tuesday, spreading into Wales along with central and northern England overnight. The snow is likely to accumulate easily, given the cold ground surfaces.

Details remain uncertain regarding the extent and amount of snowfall, in particular the northward extent of snowfall into northern England (indeed some areas may miss the snow altogether). Therefore it is likely that this warning will be updated in the light of new information and may be upgraded to Amber should confidence increase sufficiently.

Reading the MetO warning reminds me that one thing in our favour for snow tonight/tomorrow is that with low ground temps, if we do get any it has a chance of actually settling - unlike during the infamous slushfest of winter/spring 2013 ..... Whether it is snow to start with at my low altitude and location is, of course, another matter!

Steve, can I ask if you think it will be snow at lower levels like here should anything fall or are we too marginal?

EURO4 6z shows heavy snow for a time in the E Mids, but little accumulation. It seems to me that the conditions are primed for accumulation with a dry ground, low enough DP and ppn heavy. Let's see if it's right!

 

I wonder if they will consider splitting this thread into W Mids/E Mids as that could cause some frustration later on.

I sense this may be another mainly Peak District and Snowdonia event - orographic enhancement.

 

The further North and West of Birmingham you are the better for this event.

 

Anyone else should prepare for disappointment, but I hope to be proved wrong.
