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.

    Will the intensity not increase once it pivots and slips south??

    East midlands airport weather suggests Lightsnow ( now) Snow, then heavy snow, birmingham Snow, light snow, snow, heavy snow

    From what i understand these are compiled from a metrologist at the airport

    East midlands airport : http://en.allmetsat.com/metar-taf/united-kingdom-ireland.php?icao=EGNX

    Birmingham: http://en.allmetsat.com/metar-taf/united-kingdom-ireland.php?icao=EGBB

    East Midlands isnt too far South from here. Am I reading it right it is saying 40% probablity for snow and 40% probablity for heavy snow from 10-12?

    Agree with the most. Radar suggests slowing down by just seems as heavy and with the winds got some nice drifting going on

    Still snowing hard in Walsall. Looks great. If I was being picky I'd like to see a few big flakes but this will do :D

    My heavy snow symbols have been extended from 11am till 1pm.and light snow thereafter. Are they expecting the system to re-intensify ?

    All I can say guys and gals is enjoy and ramp the hell out of it!!! After the past 3/4 winters of dross we have had, we have certainly earned it!! Lost count of how many times I would have a look at the mod thread in the morning to see knocker posting charts off blowtorch south westerlies and picture of daffodils and no hope in site.

    A) No, the system won't pep up significantly now, the opposite in fact but intensity should still be solid at times.

    B) Those symbols you see are based on computer interpretations of charts, not human input. Take subtle variations like that with a pinch of salt. 

    :)

    Yes I think so. I have snow right through till midnight  perhaps to do with the pivot?

    Morning everyone. Serious stuff in my neck of the woods -- 12 cm of fresh snowfall and a max level depth of 18 cm on those surfaces which stayed out of the sun yesterday. I'm pretty sure that makes this the deepest snow here for 20+ years! (1991 was deeper; can't find stats for 1996. Max total depth in Dec 2010 was 16 cm.) Unless you have a 4x4, you're not going anywhere on the local roads.

    Taken together with Friday's event, this is undoubtedly one of the great snowfall events for my area.

    Make your own mind up, still coming down nice here and looking at the radar still a fair few hours yet.

     

     

    DWW..      

    Wind blowing and drifting the snow.

    Flakes smaller now, but it is still accumulating and the drifting is quite something.

    Temperature maintaining a steady -0.5C here. 

    A good 10 -12 cms now.

    Enclosed some photos of my garden (taken from my lounge window where I am sat watching -

    It has taken me an hour to upload this. The snow is deeper now with the temp varying between -0.5 and -0.6C

    We must be getting close to the December 1990  event now, from my childhood memories of that event snow depth is about the same! Guess that means we will have a Feburay 91 to follow!!! Lol
