    A vast area of showers to the northwest, heading for us in the Midlands, even a bit of rotation in the centre, we might be in luck later tonight and tomorrow :-)

    It's determined not to do anything but rain here.

    Surprising as I thought originally we were well placed for this sort of event, but it just hasn't happened for us at all. Might get something tomorrow morning but not holding my breath at this point.

    Listening to the Midlands news, it seems we are not going to see much over night.

    Think the GFS was accurate a few days in advance, cold air always arriving at 6pm, after the front, mild sector still being modeled tomorrow, rain/sleet I would think at low levels

    my first post in a while, but given the synoptics there was no reason for me to do so.... unfortunately i'm not at home but if i were to bet id say that some areas of the wmids, especially staffs could do well tonight, potent Cheshire gap streamer setting up, wouldn't mind being in the NW or the region tonight, up in Leeds, nothing but a bit of sleet earlier. Enjoy all who get something

    Get this app on your phone's!

    It's called "Nw snow radar".

     

    It'll give you a brilliant toll to use for snow
