    From what I can see, a lovely covering of about an inch here in Harborne. 

    Sunday/Monday is looking good for around here. The situation reminds me of 8-9 Feb 2007. That was an amazing event in an otherwise horrid winter. Anybody remember the event?

    Yes, was probably the best snow event I can remember. Think we got around 8inches here

    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.

    Remember it well. Had to abandon my car near the Plough and Harrow and walk home with everyone else in the city.

    Morning all!

    Been snowing steadily for an hour after a slight fall about 4:00.

    Now stopped again, so of the showery type.

    Current temperature is 0.5C, Dew Point -1.0C.

     Lets find the radar up to the Irish Sea.

    Had an inch or so in Telford TF3 and work in Shrewsbury. My lift decided the M54 would be too slow to take so went via Buildwas. Got to Buildwas and everyone is turning around as the road is too slippy. We tried, we slid, we gave up. Then we decided to go via Broseley, there's a slight hill so again no go, everyone's turning around. We're now heading back towards the M54 45 minutes after we should have done that in the first place. Roads that we passed half hour ago which looked reasonable are now white and lethal. The snow is coming down heavy.

    March 2013 was better in snow depth....around 12 inches in Black Country area when it we had several ice days.  Feb 2007 came on the Friday evening and was gone by the sat morning.....it this was the same event.

    Left Upper Gornal this morning at 7 and was a small covering, working in Tamworth and no snow here at all.....

    Proper big flakes, this is the most snow since 2013 for sure. Town can't be missing this!

    We aren't, a real good covering now with big flakes (just eased off a little) but as long as temps don't go up too much we look under a streamer for hours yet. 

    Evidence of how it was this morning was children of 6 and 8 said "best day ever!"

    This was my suspicion, do you have any wind direction charts to enforce this idea?

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
