    The 06z Euro4 is full of snow for some parts:

    And then at +24hrs you can clearly see the trough and convergence line which were on the FAX chart discussed earlier:

    Probs best to window watch and radar guess alongside the charts.

    Great photos folks.  

    If any of you are having issues uploading photos due to the size ,  I recommend downloading "Photoshrinker" app  ( other apps are also available ).    This will reduce the size of photos so they can be uploaded.

    Well I just sullied the virgin snow in the back garden with a tape measure and my big clumpy wellies. Difficult to find a 'level' bit but between 8 and 10 cm on average. Also cleared off the cars and the driveway, doubt it'll stay clear long but it's better than doing it all in one go tomorrow.

    Also, if you e.g. take photos within whatsapp on your phone (and send them to someone so they're saved and appear in your album), they're already nicely sized for quick forum uploading.

    Hello all, just a request from some of us a bit snow starved down here in the w-mids... maybe some of you guys could create a time lapse of the snow for this evening/overnight?

    Set up a camera which takes a photo every 10 minutes or so? It would be great to see the accumulation rates in the red area!
