According to Accuweather temp here is 3 and DP 1, The bonus of being off work recovering from an op is that I can stay up all night long watching the window!!! 

hope you have a quick recovery.... and a handy lamppost to watch the snow :yahoo:

Temp here down to 4 °C now. Come on, just a little lower. Well, and some actual precip, otherwise the temperature won't matter! :p

The Met Office hourly icons thing is almost all sleet (even a little rain) for me tomorrow now, but that's notoriously useless so I'm not going to worry about it. I'll be very interested indeed to see what the BBC TV weather forecast predicts in an hour or so, though!

We're at 4'c and dew point of -0.2'c here now, so the next stuff to fall should be snow :-D

Here at 3.9'c with a dew point of -1.3'c  so looking good too, we could do with the temps being lower do as not to hear too much of that 'drip drip' through the night

Always thought temps would struggle to drop, from being so mild, normally been cold a few days before any snow chances

BBC's weather forecast has updated (yet again) and is now showing snow for every day as well as lower temperatures :)

 

I will, however, take this with a pinch of salt.

Not yet, not yet! But I have got the curtains open in exactly the right place so the two streetlamps across the way are visible if I just sit up and lean forward so I'm not going to miss The Snowflake when it falls!

The precipitation is looking really heavy and building to the northwest.

It's really pepped up

CH..

 That looks really interesting.

 The back edge looks as if it is trying to form a closed loop...

 A developing low of a variety heading this way......  (Polar?) 

This worthwhile watching closely over the next couple of hours.

means little, but evidence of the Cheshire Gap streamer, seems to favour west of this region, Shrops

Every single chart I can find seems to have this showing and we sit right in it...! I still won't take it as definite until I'm out dancing in it, but it is getting very exciting...


...although one or two of the accumulation charts are downright alarming!!! :o

Okaaayyyyy so what does this mean in weather terms? If it does form a closed loop, what would that do? And if a new low develops and sits over this way...?

and tlak in the MOD of a possible "Stalled front" over the Midlands...?

I am on SUCH a vertical learning curve here....!

Although for all of today, Netweather's charts have shown this for all of Friday, and all the other forecasts have had snow all day for Friday but NW itself in its forecasts had only light showers briefly at 3am... so why would the charts show so different a day from the forecast on the one Netweather site?

(It's in agreement now, with snow most of Friday - but it's taken about 24 hours to catch up with all of the other ones...)
