Dear Snow, Why are you just going to Staffordshire? All they have over there is oatcakes and speed cameras. Much nicer here, why haven't we seen you for 4 years? Remember December 2010? We had so

Phew, made it......

Couple of videos from my drive into the Peaks today when I had to turn round as conditions got worse. No doubt in something better I could have gone on but in a Citroen C2, I have to be careful as the

    I'm not optimistic although will recognise that these types of scenarios generally bring a surprise somewhere! Here in Stratford we are quite low and often have rain when a few mils away with a little elevation they have snow. Temp here currently is 5 degrees with a dew point of almost 3. The interest will be how swiftly the cold air moves in and takes effect but I think personally the south east will be the sweet spot.

    We have 4'c and a dew point of 1.1'c here, so it's looking a bit better.  Overnight looks a better bet than the first 'event' ,hopefully the Cheshire gap will do its stuff!

    Looks like we're right on the edge of it today,  fingers crossed it pushes further north than predicted as the cold air digs south:cold:

    Gosh, am surprised at the downbeat mood on here this morning. The MetO is showing heavy snow for me late this afternoon and also tomorrow morning, and whilst anything could happen in reality, I haven't seen that forecast here for several years.

    Surely we must be in for a reasonable chance of a covering?

    Fizz, personally I think overnight might contain a bit more potential for us rather than this afternoon - would love to be proven wrong, though! :)

    Currently 4.9°C with a Dp of 2.0°C - the colder air should be here by early afternoon.

    Morning Bish! Wondered where you were :) 

    Mmm, hope you're wrong (in the nicest possible way), would be nice to see some snow falling in daylight, but I'll take overnight if that's all that's on offer!

    Hi Fizz, after the last few (awful) winters I think most of us will be happy to see even a small amount of falling/lying snow - fingers crossed :)

    PS did you remember to power down the Solihull snow shield? :D

    Im far more optimistic for us over in Nottingham this morning, the potential snow event from the south was always a non starter for us as just to far north however tonights event looks more promising for us.

    I don't envisage anything spectacular but to wake up to a covering would be nice

    The precipitation is heading this way but will be rain of course, at least for the first few hours. Whether anything of it is still lingering here when the cold air arrives is the question. At the moment, I'm going with that it won't I'm afraid. However, with a bit of luck those showers later might get here.

    Dudley Council are out gritting right now. Seems a bit of a waste of time with likely rain imminent. We shall see.

    I remember well the snow, rain & freeze of Jan 2004(?) when it took me nearly 7 hours to get from Cradley Heath home to South Staffs. The Dudley gritters came out in the afternoon when it was snowing and then it turned to rain and then the skies cleared at about 4pm which caused a rapid freeze. The gritters tried to get out again but by then it was rush hour and gridlock throughout the Black Country and Brum.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
