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

Started again but main bit is still to get here on radar, think there may be some showers popping up now in South midlands although very light in nature

Looks like some nr that curb over there lol. Either way lets hope things pep up and continue heading towards leics over next few hours. 

Nope, been over and checked, light reflecting off a weather balloon near venus and refracting off double yellow lines mate!!!

I'm getting a bit worried now that what we've got now, which is probably a centimetre if that is as good as its going to get here. Feeling a bit jealous of those who are getting loads because it sounds like a classic snowy spell like Winter snows of old which I want to see so much :(. Just got to hope that much more pushes this way than is currently predicted. At least there's some though which is better than nothing. Can't win them all I suppose.

Wish I had that much. Been waiting for hours for the streamer just to my south to edge northward. It finally has but is incredibly weak here and is now shooting off to my north. Brilliant. Utterly fed up. Everything that could go wrong for here has.

Good covering here in Belper from earlier and we look to be bang in the firing line for the remainder of the streamer (and everything else that’s out on the east coast). Could be quite an impressive total by morning at this rate.

How much have you got? When I say a centimetre it's probably more akin to a double dusting if that makes sense but that's only on about half the surface and its bare on in a lot of surfaces as what we did get was blown around and only stuck in the cracks nooks and crannies. It's like the sand on the pavement on a warm day on the beach so dry and powdery. If we had had much more though we would have been talking epic drifts, which is a rare sight these days indeed.

Funny thing is in Nuneaton there is a village called Bermuda. So I suppose this is the Bermuda triangle for snow lol

Brilliant! Looks like the 'Leicester snow shield' in full effect too!

Update here in rushden... snowing lightly for the past hour, now a dusting on the road which was clear earlier and topping up the 3-4cm we have on the grass. Amazing how powdery this stuff is though, can't remember the last time, if ever, i've seen snow this powdery in England.

Right I'm coming to my senses I'm been silly in my disappointment as at least there is some snow outside and as Andy in Leicester says it is nice to see this type of snow as we don't often (these days at least (actually I'm not sure I even remember any as such)) see this type of snow as it doesn't often get this cold from the east. As I say it reminds we of fine sand the way it's so dry and powdery and  was dispersed around by the wind.

I am in the very edge of the yellow. But may as well be bang in the middle of the triangle. Being on the edge is worse for the rollercoaster of it.. looking and thinking its gona get us then just missing out... argh..

All though checking the radar those showers to the east are alot more organised into a band now moving twards us.. But the decent ppn just isn't in that bit as of yet as much as the showers above .. before I went to bed we had about 1-2cm on the bits that had the dregs of this afternoons showers..

Hoping for a reasonable covering in the morning 5cm would do me.

Not got alot of hope for tomorrow but might catch abit of light stuff but will be interesting watching none the less.. Can't work so that's me for tomorrow.

My water system freezes up in the van for windows. My lawn mowing season meant to start tomorrow. Haha

I don't mind not earning if its snowed alot by me but just because of the cold. That is annoying..

That band to the east looks set to die in the next hour.

I'm pretty sure that the winds we've had tonight were much stronger than the  34mph gusts predicted by MetO. Strong enough to vibrate the walls of the flat.
