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.

    Still just cold rain here, not that heavy though. Strange how random it's been tonight, evap cooling is a weird thing sometimes...

    Very localised tonight. I thought the colder air was digging in though and would already be in the likes of Nottingham but it's reporting rain there on XCweather :cc_confused:

    Turning bk to snow here had an hour of sleet that washed away the earlier snow but later looks interesting as the cold air digs in and the Band pivots back over us around 4am.

    Rain/Sleet in Grantham/Nottingham 

    Really baffles me as the colder air is meant to be digging in from the North. So in theory, it should be colder in Nottingham/Grantham than Leicester and Rugby! I guess that's evaporative cooling in action though. Leicester and Rugby have moderate to heavy PPN at the moment and it must be bringing the temps down just enough!

    Yes that is puzzling, low temps are to the north but the snow seems o be in the centre of the low rather than on the northern edge? Even Thorncliffe reporting rain, while Leicester, Gloucester, south Wales get snow, strange.

    Just turned back to heavy snow here after an hour of rain washed most of the previous snow from the roads. Still a covering of sorts on the grass 

    Absolute scenes here in Rugbeh! Just took a video, there's actually a covering now.

    It's turned to snow here now. Not settling at the moment but hope that may change as until a bit ago I didn't think it would turn.

    I love how Leicester is in the sweet spot. Hardly ever happened when i lived there. it happened once in 2010 but can't think of another time before that.

    Yep can't remember it snowing this heavy for more than a few minutes before in Leicester. Has been pounding it down for a good hour now, and was moderate through the entire event up til then. It accumulated better a couple weeks back because it was colder and less marginal, but it definitely was not as heavy !
