    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.

    Sunday has the potential to be very special for the most of the Midlands including us in the East if it comes off, one of those events you remember for years so fingers crossed

    Nothing falling here in Wolverhampton at the moment, and by the look of that radar, i can't see it hitting me this afternoon either, by the of it there could well be another pulse that will edge slightly further east of Wolves. Just had a call from my wife in Telford, and she has been told she has to leave work by 12.30, so it is falling very heavily but also very isolated in terms of intensity, because as i'm typing this there is bright sunshine and not a flake in sight, but just a slushy mess n the ground from an earlier shower. Temp still only at 0.4C.

    To early to be getting our hopes up yet. As I've seen many times before snow forecast only to be left with a damp squid. Sorry to sound so negative but seen it many times before. However i hope I'm very very wrong 

    I know the history you speak of. It's not negative, its realistic. I'm still hopefull of a snowfest on Sunday AM but like you I don't want to get too giddy yet ;)

    To be honest its reached the point where i'm concerned i cant get my car out of the carpark at work. Starting to get reports that some roads in Shrewsbury are being closed (debate as to weather gritting was done) and some town schools closing.  Could be a very interesting day here, 

    About time shewsbury had a pasting.

    Just on the edge of the chesshire gap line here,showery intermitent snow but not amounting too much temp currently 0.0c wind turned more north and light with fog.

    Coming down steadily here. Not blizzard-like or anything and visibility is okay, but it's unusual to get anything much at all from a Cheshire Gap streamer (we're usually just too far SW) so I'm quite impressed.

    This could still go t**s up, so we need to calm down and wait for the actual event to begin.

    Exactly my mindset. I shall get excited if it is showing the same after the 12z's tomorrow. Until then, i shall keep my eye on the radar and hope for something later today.

    Any chance of the winds shifting to include Stoke in the showers?

    Thats what I'm hoping for too! We're just on the edge of it all. But there is a chance overnight into tomorrow the winds will shift ever to slightly to the North West, so that might encourage the streamer to move more South Easterly. Here's hoping!

    Unless, like me, you live 3 miles south of the amber warning area at a height of just 35m asl and you just know that you're in a for a repeat of the awful slushfest spectacular of March 2013 ..... (when it snowed and snowed and snowed and snowed, from dawn to dusk without a break.  And when it finally stopped, there was 1cm of slush in my garden (and a lot of wet mud) .... )

    Umm... possibly more usual to do things the other way round, wait for permission before publishing someone's photos...?

    You haven't used mine, but if you want to, just ask and I'm sure I'll be happy. I'd just rather it was that way round, really... :)

    Nearly six inches here now - just watched a burly neighbour struggling to open a wheelie bin til he'd got the snow off the top - the lid plus snow too heavy to lift one-handed!

    My fear is that Sunday ends up too the south of Nottingham & we are still very cold but nothing, a horrible near miss. Sadly the showers the West Midlands are currently having show little chance of giving us in the East Midlands anything, bright sunshine here although cold. All our eggs are in this Sundays basket although past experience has taught me is expect the worst re snow chances so as too not be disappointed when inevitable disappointment pans out LOL

    Ooh! Met Office upgraded Sunday’s warning to Amber. I’m trying to not get too excited but Sunday could be a corker! We’ve had a few flurries here in Warwick but nothings settled.

    Oooh, there's someone outside trying to get his car out of the big shared car-parking area which is on quite a steep slope itself and then there's another steep slope to get out of it...

    He's just flooring it, repeatedly. He's shovelled about a ton of snow, now, in multiple efforts, in between which he gets back in and floors it on a steeply-sloping iced car-park... I'm not sure what will happen first, his tyres catching fire or his clutch bursting into flame...

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      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.
