The Midlands Regional Weather Discussion 19/01/2018 Onwards

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised by people's disappointment in the lack of intensity of this band. It was never forecast to be heavy, just light-moderate with a few heavier bursts in places.

Even though the flakes aren't big, it's still settling nicely! Had 2 hours of light-moderate snow in Oxford and it's accumulated 3-4cm on top of the 5-7cm we already had! I think it will stall now over the Midlands and give light-moderate snow for a good 4-5 hours now, possibly longer. Won't exactly be blizzard conditions but better than no snow at all!

Whiteout in Worcester - going to be more snow than 2010 at this rate......just wish it was going to hang around. Def not complaining though. Hope all get the same if not snowing already.

Anyone who likes it needs to make the most of saturday i think.

Coming down nicely, hopefully doesn’t weaken too much and stalls for a few hours 

Just look at the intensity of that system in the Irish Sea! What a waste lol

Exactly! Today + Yesterday + mid-December = our first excellent winter since 2012/13 :yahoo:

Coming down well here. Everything is covered now; roads, pavements, cars. It's heavier than what we had all day yesterday.

Exactly peoples disappointment stems from the fact that some have had hardly anything. Where others have been spoilt and the difference has been a couple of miles. Or constantly being on the edge of every snow event all week. That's why some are dissapointed

If thats on the money then given the snowfall now some places could be close to 10cms
