    Really need these showers to do something overnight as this current stuff is doing nothing.

    yes this current band is fizzling out on its northern edge and moving away at the same time. Our hopes rest with Cheshire gap streamer, Id guess Staffordshire will be the best area tonight.

    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 think (hope!) my last post was wrong. Zooming in on the radar, we could actually see showers quite quickly after this area of snow clears. They're making landfall around Rhyl, which from experience is a good position to do so for us here in the West Midlands. Looks like winds are getting dragged around in our favour too.

    Maybe not much of a lull after all?

    Wow, reading back what I've just typed, I might get accused of being optimistic!

    Better counter-act it with something.

    Um...

    ...the last 3 winters were rubbish!

    There..normality restored!

    Yes Gord.  The showers are just exiting Wales but on current trajectory should reach the West Mids in 1-2 hours, lets hope they maintain intensity as they could give a covering!

    I'm surprised the streamers seem to be setting up so early  if we can catch the bullseye with some of these  a few could have a surprise

    Looking at the radar at the moment there looks to be a chance of some snow for Stoke, Stafford, Crewe, Market Drayton etc at around 5pm.
