    Yes I've been looking at that big mass, trying to work out if that is the band that is going to arrive (snow or rain?) overnight into tomorrow morning, or has it come early? Or is it a nice surprise???

    0.5 degrees here 

    I'm hoping its a starter for whats to come, but in my forecast i was always forecast for snow flurries all this morning so I have no idea!

    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

    Very light snow falling here in Evashum but my eye is keenly on the development in the wash that's definitely not forecast. Seems quite strong and building in land aswel. Wait and see i guess!

    Light snow started up again here, streamer to east looking good.

    Think dew points may have crept above zero though as earlier snow has begun melting in past half hour. Isn't this supposed to be the height of the cold spell today? Didn't expect dew points or the air temp to be above freezing at 9am.

    Yep..

    Was just about  to post the same.

    Not seen any snow here, until about half an hour ago when a couple of flakes drifted down (and if you look long enough something is still falling.

    The funny bit is that my weather app changed from a 10-20% chance of snow during  the last 24 hours, to one of rain and 30% for the current forecast.. 

    I looked out expecting to confirm the rain and there was a snow flake,:yahoo:

    Not sure who to blame!!!

    Anyway all eyes to the east to the patch of precip around the wash.  Should arrive here just about at the warmest part of the day!

    So maximum convection . Might even get 0.01mms of rain from it  then!  :cc_confused: 

    MIA

    Think Stoke/Staffordshire is too sheltered. Maybe a better chance tomorrow when that system moves in. Things become more marginal by then though.

    Very tiny snowflakes blowing about, but far too light to have an impact. When I woke up about 9 there was a dusting left on a couple of roof tiles, so there must have been a heavier shower in the early hours. Gone now though. It's starting to brighten up now too.
