Will Telford get any from this?

Yes, if GFS is correct atleast. You are well placed in fact.

By tomorrow morning:

Any pics buddy?

See above ! ^ :)

 

Though as usual everyone should bear in mind model output accumulation charts are notoriously inaccurate. Nothing more than a very rough guide.

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

JCB going up and down my lane. Must be a few drifts blocking parts of the lane where snow has gathered. Really weird seeing thin layers of snow then deep drift all of a sudden.

The Beast from the East finally roared here in South Staffs with huge drifts in places... Out track was cleared twice by the kind farmer at 11 last night and again at 7 this morning otherwise I would have been snowed in

The first one is a car in the distance well and truly stuck on the road out of the village...

Today we will see better accumulation as slighly warmer air mixes in so we are more likely to get 'wet snow' rather than the powder we have got so far.

Yes this continental snow has been nice but give me the English snow any day.  Might even be able to make a snowman

What a joke.

Very similar to Tamworth, I did measure 3cm in the back garden where it was sheltered from the wind. Out the front of the house very little on paths and roads, just random piles of drifted snow up and down the street lol.

Was still enjoyable though with that howling wind. Hope later today is better for us and still very windy at the moment.
