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

Yes keep an eye on precip developing around london for chances in our area as its expected to slide north westwards as the low pushes up so some developments to our south east would be welcome. Like you said we dont need a blizzard just continual snowfall of 0.5/1cm per hour would be good over a long period of time. Currently on about 0.1/0.2cms per hour!

To be honest, I stepped outside and put s foot in the snow, to leave the concrete showing. Even with an hours snizzle the concrete is almost gone, which just goes to show. You really only need a few hours of 'heavy - light' snow to make things white over again by morning. 

Thats why include so interested in seeing how Far East we can build things. It won't take much to squeeze an extra cover to things out.

Looking at the radar, it's getting as far east as London?? Maybe we'll be in with a chance after all?

Hope it maintains that intensity though...fingers crossed ?

Yes, just as well it's proper cold, as I have known light snow actually wet the ground, even thaw existing snow at around or just above 0

Metoffice have now updated there forecast for coventry and....no snow not even light snow for tonight ?

Ignore it, had more snow today than yesterday, and has been snowing all day here in Eastern Green. Lightly yes, but it deserves at least a cloud and 1 snowflake graphic..

The metoffice app has shown NO snow for the whole day... :D The app has no idea :D

Looks as though the precip to the south of us is moving further east, different from what computer models are showing, watch the warnings change thru the day, Let the fun and games begin...!!!:yahoo:

Keep watching that intense snow fall moving up the country on the radar i might be wrong but itnlooks to me that it's not heading off west as much as forecasted. Could it yet meander its way to Birmingham?

The way that front is moving eastwards is much different to the projected path which was to dive towards the south west and Wales. I wouldn't rule out anywhere across as far st as Leicester catching some. Some forecasters must have worries now it's always had a difficult path to forecast but now we'll let's wait and see.

We don't get gritters for side streets.

It's funny to think with today been the 1st March, that I'm usually about now seeing the frogs starting to gather in my pond to commence their breeding season. But today it's the coldest day in probably over 7 years and the ponds covered in a thick layer of ice and a blanket of snow. Even in 2013 they started before the cold put a halt to their proceedings. They're going to have to wait longer to even get started this year.
