There is a very loud jet going over though.

Trust me, I promise you that was thunder. It lasted around 5-10 seconds and was an unmistakable roll of thunder. I just looked outside and it's absolutely chucking it down. I'll be surprised if there isn't a lightning strike detected around here from around 4-5 mins ago.

Coming down fairly heavy but still not settling here. Think I'll see how things look in the morning as I suppose there's time yet for that to change.

No covering in Stoke, just rain. Surprised actually, altitude always is good for us and the radar was showing snow but it isn't!

Slightly disappointed after going to bed with it snowing heavily to have woken up to find its turned to rain/sleet and some has clearly melted leaving at most an inch on coldest surfaces

Very localised really, whole journey from Stoke to Birmingham and the only sign of snow begins around J1 of the M5. As you head past J2-J3 where it climbs a little, there is several inches.

Looking out the window this morning To about 2-3 cm. it does look a bit slushy tho and temperature up to 1c. Snow on the ground twice in three weeks is good for round here so happy days 🌨🌨

No snow at all this morning. There has been some rain overnight but no snow. Attention for me now turns to Thurs night into Fri for the risk of snow to higher ground. Buxton is a 30-40 min drive from me and normally does well in marginal situations (providing there is precipitation).

This is the scene on the A14 from M6 towards Northampton. Nothing has moved Westbound bar one vehicle. Seems to have had a good dumping there.

I’m near Daventry and reckon we have about 5cms here, so a decent amount but nothing like the Dec 10th event.
