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 going, what a day, not the snow we are used to but interesting to see and a pleasure to learn about 

Some people are angry all the time it seems

Hang on. Look at all those huge showers on South Coast heading this way! Could that be the heavy showers met are on about? If they keep intensity and the right direction some parts could get a good covering from those.

fantastic day, carn.t complain.

snow totals reached 20 to 25 cms, drifts on top moors 2ft to 6ft feet blocking roads.

walk home at midnight was truely arctic. howling winds 40 mph gusts, blowing snow, bloody freezing

not massive depths, but plenty to be pleased with, a real wintry blast, and that's on 01.03.18.

Yep all in all a great 15 days watching he drama of model outputs and arriving at zero hour tonight with a great winters blast.

a few more days to consider, should keep all of us on our toes, and who knows what end of March can bring.

Remember in the not to distant  past  we had 30 to 40 cms of snow on 23.03.13. :)

 

hope everyone's enjoyed last few days, and good luck to you lucky beggers in the SW you deserve some winter action at last.

One last look outside before I turn in for the night. Still snowing, though not as hard as before. Depth averaging 4-5cm I suppose, though as before there are large variations, from zero to about 8cm. Wind is howling away. It's bitter out there. Now to see what Friday brings!

Hirlam going for snow here and for much of the midlands from around 2pm today until about midday saturday continuously. Maybe with an upgrade or 2 this cold spell could have saved the best until last. Certainly for some of us that still have patchy snow cover at least.

Models all see to show today's front stalling just south of here. That would really top it off :wallbash:

That is my concern having looked at the models closer gfs accumulation only shows 4 to 5cms tbh across most of the region. Arpege also not to great. Hirlam shows the precip sticking around longest and heaviest.

We had very little yesterday and last night apart from the wind here in north Nottinghamshire

Bank 5cm on top of last night's heavy snow. Look how intense the PPN is. Somewhere in the Mids is going to get smashed and because temps are higher should mean bigger flakes the only thing missing so far. Reports of Rain and freezing rain in South means it's going to be more North than expected. Some serious gales here also.
