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.

Im in harborne mate. Not too far! Quite an exciting spell for our neck of the woods eh. We're helped by our area having decent altitude. 

Me too, teeny bit lower down on the Harborne/Edgbaston border. Fingers crossed, we've an interesting weekend in store!

From my (untrained) eye, it would appear we may be slightly too far east, wins looking slightly more Northerly, what do you think, Mark?

No chance am i getting emotionally involved in the output for Sunday just yet, been burnt way too many times that i am able to ignore it for the time being, we know all too well that could be shifted to the South coast by Saturday evening, or up to the Borders.

My head tells me that I'll be just that 100m too low and that it'll be sleety rain except in the heavier bursts.

My heart tells me to dig out the gloves, woolly hat, fleece, wellies, sledge, shovels...

Which do I go with? I've been burnt so many times before?

Ah, who am I kidding? I know full well I'm going to go with my heart! :cold: At least if (when) it proves to be a let-down here in Worcestershire, I can see the Clent Hills from my bedroom window so I might at least have some snow to look at!

I think that I am pretty much in the sweet spot, just north of Walsall , in Bloxwich , 160m. Historically we have often had snow , even when places close by have had rain . Noticeable drop in temperature in the last hour or so .

Bloxwich is great for snow 

highest point is about 570ft in Victoria avenue ,

now live in lowland pelsall at 500ft ?

I still see people talking about it being too marginal. With uppers between -8 and -10 tomorrow, everything that falls at any level will be snow.

Some snapshots from the latest national BBC forecast.

Can agree, I am a 10 minute walk away from Bloxwich too, and I remember In 2013 where I was there was a covering of snow but got noticeable deeper as I got into Bloxwich.
