It’s in Harborne near lordswood road if you went down any side streets you’d probably see similar!

Just walked to work in kings Norton from Bournville and those drifts are insane

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

I love reading the forums BUT I get hope for a dump of snow as others have, I am left feeling very envious of others wins.  Leics has failed again.  we had snow, the grass is covered, but not the depths of others.

 

I went for a lovely walk last night, Glad I Did as the weather was superb, blowing snow in the icy wind,  drifts, fabulous!  Roads for a time were covered too.

 

we can hope for more today but I do think being so central is our downfall for many reasons.  We live in hope for any snow event because there is always a chance !!  

 

:yahoo:

Being almost perfectly central we have the benefit of getting affected by easterly and westerly systems whereas other areas don't, e.g. those far west will rarely see easterly showers, downside is we never get any real snow depth because we just get scraps from every system.

Is the Midlands still on for a pounding later? Any idea what sort of time the snow may start to effect us?

Not sure about 'pounding' maybe a bit later though if the front can push far enough North,.

Arpege and Hirlam should let us know around 10am. Will post here with the output...

Just can't see where this snow is going to come from yet.

 

Last nights model run (that latest we have atm) showed it just kind of accumlating out of nowhere. So from what I can tell, it's not something you can currently see on radar.

Still cold and feels much colder than the -0.5c measured here.  Cloud cover increasing a tad. Proper windy.

Band of showers on radar down SE, are they coming this way...if so great!  More are popping up though.  Expectation was something later this afternoon? Not had time to read forecasts or trawl mod thread so dont know what the general consensus is!  Talk of warm up and thaws....(rolls eyes) :)

Yeah as @weirpig just said 06z GFS is already rolling out and has it over us for a while. It looks good, goes right from SW midlands up through to the very NE of midlands. GFS accumulations of 5 to 8cm by late Friday night. 2 or 3cm by rush hour, roads will be awful.
