    That little green blob on the radar is sticking to Coalville in Leics. Dad always used to say that 'the top of Ashby road is the coldest, snowiest place in the county' - and he lived there in 1947!

    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

    Still clear skies here but all forecasts have altered to give us varying amounts of overnight snow. My chap is working from home tomorrow, which is a relief - one fewer car on the roads... 

    We're still in BOTH of the warning areas, and I really do wonder how unusual that is, weather systems from opposing directions trying to clash in the middle over our little flat!

    The Hirlam model shows moderate bursts of snow getting right up to the North Midlands tonight. Hmm.

    Much disparity in the output for tomorrow. The Hirlam, Aperge and ECM all look good. GFS, NMM and Euro4 look rubbish.

    darker blues to my east, may miss to the east, still light snow here

    Looks like we'll be right on the Western edge of it, if it is moving NW then we should pass through it, if however, it's still moving North then we'll just keep to that western edge.

    When the wind drops I can see it’s now ‘proper’ snow, rather than the funny stuff that has been raining down all afternoon, it’s prope flakes, goodness knows what we will wake up to, it’s like the day after tomorrow ?

    Just been to an exposed hilly common by mine, whilst the general accumulation around here isn't great, the drifts on the common were unreal. Have a look at these.

    1- entrance to the common (car park)

    2- a picture of a drift

    3- me knee deep in the drift

     

    sorry, the pics aren't great.

     

    @staffsnow you may want to head down there, it's right by yours I think.

    For a brief second I thought that was a car buried in snow.

    When I look at the radar all the yellows are gradually moving west, I think at best we may get some green but it’s pretty much been blue the whole time imo here

    I’m only in Halesowen, it may not be giving snow depth, but it’s sure causing major problems, my street is now blocked and Stourbridge road is stationary in both directions

    I can report it's finally proper snowflakes here after a day of snow mist or snow drizzle!

    Got a few of cms lying snow and mini drifts but the bigger stuff has finally arrived after being agonisingly close on the radar for the last couple of hours. Still in the Amber warning zone here so get checking those lampposts everyone!

    Cuz I’m on a hill here I can’t really see how bad it actually is as it just blows straight off the road, apart from large patches the road here is fairly clear but there are drifts of around a foot lol

    Stourbridge Road/Drews Holloway always bad in weather like this, Mucklow Hill and Furnace Hill also stuff, everywhere out of Halesowen either up or down a hill
