    I think that most people in the Midlands are going to get something.

    The fact that Hereford and Malvern (Barb) is  now reporting sleet to snow indicates that the colder temps have arrived earlier than expected.

     People in the east - it is coming...  People in the North West - the radar indicates its on its way to you also.

     I am still falling here (0.5C and -0.5c) and the snow has covered the  salted roads easily.

     It really is snowing more heavily now than in the last event. 

     It would class it as a 9/10 event now as the wind is also blowing it. A bit more depth of snow and half a degree colder and I will be reporting blizzard conditions.

    Some pics of my home in Shropshire - it's throwing it down again now.  I'd say we have has about 8 inches but its at least a foot deep on my lawn ans surrounding fields.

    17cm of level snow. That's more than Dec 2010 or Dec 1995 managed. It's certainly the most round here since Feb 1991, possibly 1987. 4 years without any significant snow ends like this.!

    this mornings drive out or a small bit of it.

    1.4c here now, 100% snow it seems. Great stuff, 3 hours ahead of schedule. There was a magical moment when I was looking at the radar to see precip all over Leicester, but no pitter patter on the window anymore... so I shot to the window, and surely enough, pure snow ! woop.

    No sign of it settling yet. The temp probably needs to drop another degree til that happens though. However i've seen snowflakes so this event already gets a 7/10 from me without it even settling :D

    Just to add to the posts about the met office, they havent been half as vigilent and concerned with his event as the last. Its also a bit further north, but nothing noteworthy in the forecasts!

    In a small village about 10 miles south of the city.. so temps are about 1c lower than the city temps, which helps. The cold is moving southeast, so should get into northants in an hour or two. It was only supposed to snow here from 1am onwards, so its almost 4 hours early. So hopefully will be 4 hours early for your area too!

    It looks like it's evening up the rest of the Midlands with our 13-14 inches a fortnight back - we have light rain in Telford...dewpoint of +2C, temp of +2.3C, so I'm not holding my breath... 

    Excellent to see how many of you are getting lots, though!

    Anyone get the impression Met Office have got this fantastically wrong !?

    GFS and other big models dont have it snowing here for another 4 or 5 hours. It's already snowing now, and it's coming down quite heavy. It's only going to get less marginal and more cold as the night goes on, so I don't ever see it reverting back to rain. This is expected to go on for another 9 hours for my area..

    Wow nice!. According to Met Office, that's all you should be getting. "maybe 1 or 2cm" is what they said. I think they're wrong...

    Thing is most parts of Ruby are on higher ground around the Lickeys , I know this area well .

    Birmingham always does well in these marginal situations.  :)

    That's the BBC Weather nowcasting for you. It drives me mad. Now I just take my brolly to work unless it's obvious there'll be no rain.

    kmanmx...

     I think that the whole thing is moving more quickly than expected.

    It could be that around midnight that most of the precipitation may have moved through.

    If it hasn't then we have a problem for tomorrow with a lot of people travelling.

    I am not certain as the low appears to be centred in central southern England already.

     I did not think that was supposed to  happen until midnight.

    Still we will see.
