More info on the snow melt...

The small ice pellets that fell (polystyrene!) have not melted but the fluffy snowflakes on the same area have now gone.

Contrary to my last report the next shower is about to descend upon us.

Looks like polystyrene again!!! 

Very odd, considering the really cold uppers are now getting over us!

Anyone with a macro lens needs to go and photograph the amazing snowflakes falling right now. This is the best i can do

So, both hi res models over which whose territory this system is evolving - Hirlam and Arpege (both I would have a lot of respect for) - have very decent accumulations forecast by Friday morning from

Going to be a useful set of 12z data coming in. Most here would be wanting GEM to continue on its 00z - gave upwards of 15cm widely across the Midlands by Saturday. 

I would be giving most value to Hirlam and Arpege in this scenario where the low is coming up from the south.

Another very heavy snow shower passing through Nottingham, whiteout conditions again with massive flakes, settling everywhere but when the Sun comes out, anything not in shade vanishes. Lets hope these showers carry on after dark as Nottingham could get a decent covering tonight if they do, as they are that heavy

Is it graupel? Sounds like it and that would fit with very cold uppers, wouldn't it?

Seems the bbc weather radar has gone poof due to high demand!

Maps outage

Due to unprecedented levels of demand on our website we have temporarily replaced some of the less visited pages and unfortunately are currently unable to provide our usual weather and observation maps

It's like a battle between the air and the sun. App says it's -1'C but it feels so warm in the sun. Snow sticks instantly but goes as soon as the sun hits it. Another shower approaching at the moment.
