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

    I remember a few years ago the parking sign on the other side of the road was completly covered. Its about 6 or 7 foot high.

    Yep shows moderate snowfall for many with the odd heavy burst.

    Arpage showing similar movement by 9pm

    maybe not quite as bullish as the Hirlam model on amounts by then,but as ever radar/lamp post watch is best now-models just for an idea.

    Looking pretty decent so far though.-and i have doubled by snow cover to 2cms already!

    Absolutely throwing it down here, but with tiny flakes, so the cover on the previously-bare car roofs etc is only just over 1 cm. Still, everything looks white now! Temp down to -2.0 °C.

    BBC forecasts keep saying "to the high ground in the West were expecting 10-15cms from this band of snow" 

    Looking at the radar im not so sure the West is going to get that.

    I wouldn't be surprised at 15cm if it keeps going like this for the next couple of hours
