Just passed over M62 in my wagon and the road was covered in places. Decent covering above 250m or so.

Looking at the bbc forecast this morning looks very uninspiring to be honest. Yes some showers across the region but very hit and miss looking at the graphics. Think some may get a few cms across high ground. But for majority of us it looks like another close but no cigar moment.

Keeping our feet on the ground as always Terrier!

I take your point but it does look as though the showers may merge to produce a longer spell of snow this evening though by which time there should not be anything marginal about the setup.

The flow looks very unstable and there was still talk of Thunderstorms (snowy ones) on the late forecast from Paul Hudson last night.  Somebody mentioned thunder on the TAF for Leeds Bradford airport earlier as well.

I have a feeling things may properly kick off this evening if it is snow you are after!  Here's hoping anyway!  :)

??  The models I have been looking at never promised us anything this morning?  It has always been from this afternoon (late afternoon) and into tonight when we are forecast the coldest uppers and most unstable flow.  Give it time!

I hope the Met is right on this one! Still waiting for the downgrade, which always comes. Even 6 hours out! Did anyone else get woken up by the hail storm at 5:40 this morning!? Thought my window was going to crack.

Yeah maybe but looking at the latest euro4 output it show very little in the way of settling snow away from the highest hills of our region. Can’t post chart at moment as on phone.

At this range modelling is less important. Anything that reaches here should be snow and it looks like after lunch, plenty should reach here.

The first downgrade is here. Snow now not forecast until 3. The heavy snow forecast this morning turned out to be hail. The dog loved it though.

Absolutely chucking it down with rain in Huddersfield. Not expecting anything from this during day light hours at least. Maybe after dark is when our best chances may occur. Got sleet forecast till 6pm at 150m asl now.

Hoping as previously said later on in the day things turn more favorable, saying that I've popped down to Retford from Doncaster for work seen the full works already, rain sleet, hail and a brief period of moderate wet snow so anyone higher up should be optimistic, forecast looks OK as it stands, though more flip flopping than a week in Brid

I've had a cm already this morning and the more organised showers aren't expected till mid afternoon. Have faith my friend but unfortunately when it comes to showers some get luckier or unluckier (which ever way you want to look at it) than others.
