The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion - 07/12/2017 Onwards

Recommended Posts

The BBC weather called it pretty well.  I to 2 cm in some areas, rain or sleet for most.  Not sure where all this talk of 15-20 cm came from. .

To be fair these marginal set up are very hard to call anyway

Ahhh finally, it's started to settle on the roads, grass and roofs now. The road is *just* starting to whiten, but you can already see the snow has basically absorbed the water and puddles. Half a centimeter on the grass and elsewhere... and the snow is falling heavier than ever. I think the fun is just beginning in my neck of the woods :D

Not sure about that, it's supposed to snow for another 6 hours in some places.

Wet snow in Gloucester in the Severn Valley. Grass starting to turn white. Quite a surprise. We are about as low as you can be in terms of height above sea level.

Regardless what happens. I had my foot of snow a few weeks back. If I wake to a slush fest for the next few years  oh well. What a great winter already this had been

Well after hours of heavy rain, it turned sleety and then to heavy heavy snow a mile outside Gloucester city centre. 

Amazingly it started to lay pretty quickly. Now it is white everywhere ! This at not much above 20 m above sea level.

Snow starting to turn the pavements and road a bit white here now! Temp has dropped to 1c with a dew of 0c! By the looks of the GFS precip charts, this will stick around till around 7-8am and the colder air really digs in after 3am! Could actually wake up to a white scene here in the morning! Big surprise for me as I wasn't expecting it.

Sleety rain now, wind has picked up, temp at 1.3C, so falling & settling still unlikely.

Yep some reintensification going on goes to show why folk shouldn’t be so quick to judge based on the now.

Very unlucky! It's cos Nuneaton is a dive mate, even the snow doesn't want to go there! :rofl: jesting of course. Strange though how 10 miles is the difference between rain and snow though.
