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

Curious about the wording of the MetO warning. It appears they suspect it may stall - am I right in reading it that way? I hope so as otherwise I can't see my area getting more than a dusting!

Yes i think it will before eventually fizzling out. Where it stalls should do well i dont think we will see much in the way of heavy precip though

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

 

talking more the City Of Nottingham, Norths Notts usually fairs well

Annoying thing living in East Mids is I have to sit here for hours watching all your westerners talk about snow before it arrives/fizzles out in Leicestershire :p

Boxing Day was an annoyance. I live in the centre of Leicester and it started snowing quite heavily. Then it petered out, turned to sleet then rain and nothing remained on the ground. My twitter feed was full of pictures from Nottingham, Mansfield & Loughborough of snow. I shed a single tear and cursed the weather god.

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

 

No, it's this band.

 

Basically (going by the stronger GFS rather than the UKMO) it largely stays weak as it pivots over the Midlands (becomes a much broader system though). Once over the midlands after 9pm tonight it strengthens as it moves northward.

Current track has it hitting west mids Around 7. And I can't see it further north at all intact looks a touch further south to me and it was shown to go north then kind of pivot over the midlands.

I think we will all get a few cms the band looks quite widespread I think bham north could get hammered i f the ppn doesn't weaken further south I reckon a few cms

Looking at the satellite picture the cloud over east wales and the west midlands is fragmenting and breaking up, i think 7pm this evening is extremely optomistic if at all.

Give it chance its not even due for another 5 or 6 hours I think we must be looking at different charts because mine looks good for the whole of the midlands and also remember the ppn is meant to intensify as it hits the midlands.

There seems to be more northerly movement than eastern, so i'm not getting too excited, as i have seen these situations fade away before, but i may and hope i am wrong.

PPN showing on the Radar around Bristol area. Nothing falling from the sky though....well the odd spot.

Look at the radar images over Northern Ireland atm. It can soon intensify. 

And the cloud isn`t breaking up! http://www.meteociel.fr/observations-meteo/satellite.php
