    Temperature falling now at 2.2C, with persistent moderate rain.h

    Temperature scraped up to 3.8 at 12:30.

    The wind also starting to pick up from the   SSE.

     

    Last 10minutes have seen the first signs of sleet blobbing on the windows and it is now starting to show as discrete blobs against the dark background..

     

    We are not far from Bham Airport so it looks as if it is all going according to MO forecast (snow by 17:00)

     

    Best of luck to everyone.

    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

    Starting to settle on cars. That's always the start if we're going to have it laying!

     

    Quite incredible how a bit of elevation can make all the difference. I'm at about 150m and it's still plain old rain, let alone settling snow!

    So it seems to be changing all over the midlands now i dont think elevation will matter today obviously the higher you are the more you will get but its looking quite widespread i have to admit earlier i though there was no chance of it turning

    2.4c here now, but still rain. Temp falling nicely though. MetO don't have us down for sleet until 7pm so not worried yet.  :)

    It's great that it's snowing for you guys ! I think our (east mids folk) time will come in 2 or 3 hours. MetO has rural areas around me in south Leicestershire down for a good 6 hours of snow after about 8pm.

    Snow really has turned quite heavy now. Everything is getting increasingly covered including the road.

     

    It's been so long!
