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

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

 

 

Well of course they will be the biggest winners, but they are certainly not the only places getting snowfall and accumulation.

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 find that very odd, surely if we get a period of heavy snow then it will settle given the conditions tonight.

 

Given the size of the region its very possible us in the East could be disappointed however who knows, definitely a wait & see on this one. My main concern is the front coming in doesn't look that potent to give anyone a period of heavy snow certainly not over here in the East

Is it just me or does it look to far West for us

 

Pretty sure another band appears later today.

 

Actually I might be getting confused.. can't remember now.

Well it's about time us West midlanders got a good dumping

 

Pretty sure West Mids nearly always does better than East (bar peak district). Most systems that arrives from the west dies out the further it gets towards east mids :(

I am right in thinking its another band coming in  later which peps us what is currently in wales which hits the Midlands. The annoying thing about living in Nottingham during these West to east snow events is that we're only 40 miles away from Birmingham & they can be being hammered while we don't see a flake although I have known it to be raining in Brum while snowing here LOL

Sky looks pretty clear to the west from where i am at the moment, and it's a nice sunny afternoon, so don't be surprised at another downgrade, i,m not saying there will be one, but there is a history of it.

Snow is still a good 5-7 hours away from Midlands.

Agreed, here in Nottingham we often appear to miss out. When snow arrives from the West, it often lost most of its potency or peetred out by time it hits us or if its coming from the East too far inland to benifit from snow showers that come in from the North Sea

Yup. 

 

Basically, very central England e.g Leicester/Notts/Northampton gets the weaker stuff from all directions. Other than very south, has to be one of the worst places in the UK for frequent accumulating snowfall.

Have to say I'm usually quite fortunate in my area of Nottinghamshire we often see snow - whether a good dumping or a flurry.
