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

    The flakes are getting bigger again now so hopefully the more mighty stuff can't be far off.

    Coming down nicely now for the first time this week. Probably at a rate that would see 5-6cms over a couple of hours.

    Coming down nicely in Telford and settling. The radar is looking very good. I’d say better than anything we had yesterday

    False start here in Melton Mowbray. Was a few fine flakes, but stopped immediately.

     

    BBC and Met Office app had "Heavy Snow" all day and we've barely seen a flake yet!
     

    That's how it started here for the first hour then it just lashed it down.

    Ironic all the hype about yesterday's and it's the hidden stealth band behind it that is giving us a pasting lol. Hope it manages to creep to Stoke although it is starting to stall. :snowman-emoji:
