I am being really positive for Sunday I am visioning waking up on Sunday with heavy snow falling, then me and the lad off sledging :) by 3pm the village will be cut off (like it was in the 80’s) then a session of thawing out by a rawing fire, back out for a night time walk in the snow, then doing it all again Monday as the schools will be shut!!! #believebelievebelieve :)

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 snowing here, albeit the flakes are small. 6cm on cars and about 4cm on pavements. Much less on the road where it's wetter.

Pretty pleased, really! Reaching 5cm in Bewdley is not a common occurrence -- this is the first time since March 2013.

Really hoping those of you who missed out today will join the fun on Sunday!

Me to, but my work depends on the weather im a window cleaner and use a water system so if it gets too cold all my pipes freeze no money for me. Snow is not too bad just if temp stays below freezing... 1 or 2 degrees its fine.

So a poison chalice!

Love snow and cold winters and we never get them but also is bad for work. 

Still hoping for snow can catch up on work it hardly ever snows here.

2010 last decent winter.

Sounds amazing!

I moved house and new place they took the fireplace out fools..

Brought the log burner with me sat in the garage. Hoping to remodel eventually and put it back in.

Can't beat a roaring fire after a snow day.

Brilliant.:D

just noticed the temprature has gone from 0.9 to 0.1 in the last hour (9 miles north worcester)

strange day, fine to drive one minute then whiteout, then thaw again.

 

 thinking the rush hour may be fun.

Very little snow melt today with temps hovering around 0c. Temps starting to drop further now, Lovely Jubly.

Hi, I think you did preety well last year for snowfall, one of the rare few, Indeed you've been in the best spot in recent winters for snowfall, and your luck looks like being in again this time around. Expecting the Peak District to see the heaviest and longest lasting snowfall of anywhere on Sunday.

Being central where you are, you are exposed to weather from all directions, best direction to be - you are exposed to easterly and northeasterly airstreams, and often do well from low pressure moving in from the west bumping into cold air and also southerly tracking lows etc..

Here in the Lake District - we are less well located, and tend to do well from snowfall only in battleground scenarios, or when there is a westerly feed to the polar airstreams - we can though see trifle amounts..

Well this is an epic day for Shrewsbury! Had to go and get wife's son from school as they closed, it's about 10 miles west of here, the round trip took 2 hours. And I was lucky because I can avoid the town centre which is apparently well gridlocked. I honestly can't remember seeing the roads round Shrewsbury like this before; even the A5 is treacherous.

Then got home, having driven through multiple snow showers. Time to measure the depth. On the front lawn, an awesome 12cm level snow. And just helped build a snowman, it's a long time since this was possible here. And it's already been snowing again and covering the bare bits where we scraped the snow to build it. 

8/12/17 is a date to remember here!

 although we are in an amber warning for Sunday I don’t hope I don’t hold much hope I meant for any know the BBC weather app is absolute hopeless because every hour today he’s had me location down for heavy snow or light snow showers we only had about 1015 minutes of heavy snow in the morning and a few light snow showers nothing since then all day not even a flake

Quite a bit across Dudley in comparison with previous years.  In Halesowen reckon we've had a good 5cm/6cm, which has slightly thawed during the day but down to -0.4C now.  In Coseley and Dudley the figure is similar, with around 4-5cms depending on where you look.  Again some melt across the day, but now down to -0.6C

Interesting day working on the trams. Drove through some pretty intense showers, challenging to see ahead but that's why we have so much route knowledge training!

From hardly any cover in Birmingham City Centre to a cm or two in West Brom and Wolves. However, it's back home here in Gornal that's the most impressive. I estimate around 5-6 centimetres and coming down again now.

Local forecast for Wolves is now showing/saying just light snow on Sunday now so at this rate of retraction (today included), i can suspect those warnings could well be in the bin come Sat. afternoon.

The local nature of the snow cover is quite something really. In Quinton we had a few inches but literally a mile up the road the grass is green. That band of showers has been very narrow in nature but persisant and Shrewsbury has been lucky to be under it all.

That said for all the super duper weather they have had over the years, they deserve this dump. I've seen snow every year in 10 here in Stoke so I won't begrudge the lack of activity here today (well a little).
