Some snow here but given Sheffield’s topography it’s not great on some of the usual roads.

A lot out to the east but conditions not right for them to maintain intensity as they head inland.

Nothing moving here on my street but I’m guessing the main roads are ok. It’s very pretty we get occasional snow showers :) Always the same our street and surrounding streets remain snowed in because so cats can’t  shift. Working from home rather than risking trekking through it (injured leg).

Radar looks good for here till midday at least ?

Looking at the shower trajectory over the last hour or so the showers are moving towards West-north-west. What does that mean?

If a shower is over Grimsby it should hit Halifax. If a shower is over ingoldmells it should hit Sheffield. One over spurn point should hit Leeds etc.

Wind direction is subject to change but this looks like the current situation.

We got about an inch of snow today. Better than nothing but v jealous of North East England!

Anyone read 'The Snow'by Adam Roberts? 

And this is how the world will end...

"The snow started falling on the sixth of September, soft noiseless flakes filling the sky like a swarm of white moths, or like static interference on your TV screen -- whichever metaphor, nature of technology, you find the more evocative. Snow everywhere, all through the air, with that distinctive sense of hurrying that a vigorous snowfall brings with it. Everything in a rush, busy-busy snowflakes. And, simultaneously, paradoxically, everything is hushed, calm, as quiet as cancer, as white as death.

And at the beginning people were happy."

But the snow doesn't stop. It falls and falls and falls. Until it lies three miles thick across the whole of the earth. Six billion people have died. Perhaps 150,000 survive.

But those 150,000 need help, they need support, they need organising, governing. And so the lies begin. Lies about how the snow started. Lies about who is to blame. Lies about who is left. Lies about what really lies beneath. Less

So the same as the Netweather forums in reverse really?!  :D

We had another 3-5cm overnight, but its the showers this morning that are just stopping that have brought an absolute ton.

Its dropped almost another 10cm in the past 2 hours, paths that I cleared this morning now have snow above the tops of my feet in my whellies. Its gone from being nice to being really deep very quickly. Could well imagine somewhere to our North East has over a foot of the stuff by now.

An earthquake with a 3.2 magnitude has struck Cumbria, the British Geological Survey has said.

Could this have an effect on direction the snow moves in ?? 

Earthquakes are in the ground mate, snow comes from the sky. :D

Well that was an interesting drive to work - Horsforth to Wakefield. Took me an hour and 10 minutes to get just past Meanwood then got a call to say school shut! Very tricky getting back but great fun.

Due to the severe depths of snow involved, measuring this morning's snow could only be done with a tape measure:

I think we might need the army to come in. We'll be cut off for days with this.

Halifax is more Brigg/Scunthorpe.

The radar looks as though there may be some sort of streamer setting up!

Epic morning so far, virtually non stop and with pulses of near whiteout conditions. Traffic very dodgy, all starting around 8am as the MetOffice suggested.

I can't believe the weather is missing you at Hedon! It's bonkers weather here in Scunthorpe and my mum has it at Beverley too - isn't it mad how localised it can be!

Which radar are you all using?

The netweather one. Put in your postcode and turn on animation.

Yes, its ridiculous, but the radar explains everything. This shows 12 hour precipitation:
