    I’ve seen lightning to the SW from up here in NE Somerset. We have had a few sleety snowy showers over recent hours when the wind really whips up but nothing of note. Incidentally I am not a lover of

    Ugh, the joy of being woken by a text from the sister-in-law in Northampton all excited because they have snow. Last laugh is on them though as they are driving down here for the football!

    Just moderate rain here, praying us far southerners can join in the fun later on but not holding my breath.

    All those who do have snow enjoy it, some good pics already, looks like a winter wonderland developing in the S Mids! :):cray:

    Heavy wet snow here in Stroud, coming down thick and fast and has been for hours though dew points really need to fall as it's struggling to settle properly, got a covering for sure but all very wet.

    lets hope the pivot wraps the slightly lower dew points around allows for a cleaner covering :)

    The amber warning should definitely be further south. Swindon for example is snow all day!!!! 

     

    Yes it’s a little chaotic here because it rained and then snowed. So nothing is gritted. Hearing reports of a lot of accidents and quite a few hills are not passable. I’m on the A4289 and I’ve not yet seen a grittier or plough.

    Quite Chris. Here in East Gloucester I'm a mere 69m ASL, but it's heavy snow that's settled, could due with the do points dropping further, do you know where we can find that out?

    Now a rapid thaw as the rain is quite steady....however more heavy ppn is incoming which is likely to turn it back to snow here, which is a recipie for disaster on the roads...heavy snow settling on top of partially melted snow, and with temps peaking in the next couple of hours and then dropping off, it will all freeze..........so for anyone who has to venture out along the M4 corridor, please take great care either driving or walking

    Yes a lot of accidents around here, Glos police advising not to go out, Air balloon roundabout and Nettleton Bottom closed due to accidents and locals around Ciren posting pics of cars stuck and plenty of accidents.
