    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. .

    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.

    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.

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

    Damnnn yeah huge flakes and very very heavy. It's almost wiped out a 2inch deep puddle already, sweet!. Roads are now 95% white over. Settling very well everywhere now. If only it could stay like this for a few hours :D

    Wow. Just goes to show how 10 miles can make a big difference. Snow 10 miles east and north east and rain here

    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.
