    Those pictures are epic. This is defiantly turning into a Winter to remember in your location alone. Let's hope the rest of us can join you soon :santa-emoji:.

    Fingers crossed for all of you!

    I'm a bit alarmed by how little attention anyone round here pays to the weather. I mentioned it to two different lots of people on Wednesday and neither of them knew any snow or cold weather was in the offing. Today we mentioned it in the pharmacy and neither pharmacist nor customers knew about Sunday's Amber Warning... 

    If we do get another 20+cm on sunday morning on top of the 6-8 inches we already have, then a lot of people are going to find themselves struggling as they won't necessarily have topped up electric or whatever... :( and will need to either go out into the snow without proper kit (I've seen some miserable souls in jeans and trainers and hoodies already) or try to manage without... 

    We'll just keep an eye on the neighbours we know are elderly or have young children, and see if we can get them shopping or whatever...

    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.

    After around a cm of snow early this morning, we've only had a few flurries, missing out on the action. Lovely blue skies for quite a time this afternoon, before clouds drifted over from the north and sprinkled us with a little light snow.

    Now the showers are heading in a different direction and looks like I may miss out to the south... couldn't make it up. Maybe I can catch the edge of a couple...

    I could actually see the snow clouds passing to the west of me! Grump. Grump.

    Just been out with a ruler like the silly big kid I am, something I very rarely get to do in Bewdley! Poor-quality photo attached -- just over 8cm, which is quite significant for these parts.

    Had a heavy shower in the last hour which started as graupel and then turned to heavy snow. Impressive covering from just one shower (just shows how those catching all the showers are knee deep in the stuff today). What was noticeable after the show was how quickly what did fall froze over. It got crispier as I walked the dog.

    Pleased for Shropshire though, some amazing pictures from there. Sunday could prove to be memorable on top of a good base. Possible flooding by Wednesday though?

    First time since March 2013 we've maintained a snow cover from sunrise to sunset here. (We haven't done so well on sunset to sunrise snow covers over the past 5 years either!)

    Today is also the best weather day so far of 2017...shame on you summer storms!

    Yes notice the winds more west/NW and the wind picked up too drifting from the west is a bonus.

    A couple of heavy snow showers since temp dropped to -0.9c in the first prolonged shower making it the coldest temp of the winter so far.:cold:

    Hopefully that blob of snow should reach me - think we’re on the same trajectory..... ?

    Some decent snow fell enough to white over the road, and still keeps coming!

    Really prepping up again. Be interesting to see where this ends. Hopefully with a deep covering :D.

    It's great having snow in December. Makes the run up to Christmas much more festive and exciting.

      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.
