    Meanwhile I have freaking blizzards, foot high drifts and it's still belting it down. Rural roads becoming impossible.

    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

    One last hurrah? Looks like this locale (east of Pershore) is about to get hit with the heaviest burst since the showers 

    Any idea why this event was overlooked ?

    Depends on your forecast - in line with hirlam, gfs and arpege. I think most here would agree met office not coming out of this well.

    First post as I usually just read everyones updates but thought id use the facebook log in to vent frustration haha :

     

    The south of Nottingham hasn't had a flake today, and most of the snow from a few nights ago has melted.

    That was the only snow of any significance this winter and increasingly looking like its all we are getting.

    admittedly it was a fair amount of about 4 inches and the most weve had for a good 15 years I reckon, but its the usual disappointing winter for Nottingham I think.

    Not quite sure we never do well on the snow front

    Welcome...

    Make your self welcome.....

    Tonight is probably the only night we will get more than you, so do not get too jealous!

    I am sure your turn will come.

    Just imagine the extremes if these Synoptics had happened 2 months ago !!! 

    Would have been record smashing 

    perhaps 4/5 weeks left for snow chances then the hunt for sunshine. Weather until end of October , then hopefully more snow chasing ?????

    Very disappointing evening. Only a light dusting and you can’t really tell because the wind has whipped it into the drifts. Maybe a surprise fall come morning....

    yes, probably no more snow, but from Sunday would be 1° maxes I reckon, foggy and maybe more snow flurries, as it's not a raging Atlantic breaking through

    Wonder if I could sneak a decent fall out of this. Snow lightly but persistently and could go on for a good few hours looking at the radar. Would be great if we could get the brighter radar returns up here but they've weakened all week before getting here.

    Summer Sun changed his name? no, I love snow, but when it's over bring on first 20 degrees days

    I wilt sadly if it gets over about 20-22, and by 26-27 I'm really miserable. I'm clearly evolved for British summertime :)

    What I will admit to being quite happy to see coming along in the next few weeks is some spring days - by which I mean, I'm still wearing a jumper outside, but with sleeves pushed up, maybe bare-legged under my skirts, and being able to spend an hour or so out in my guerilla-garden, tackling a lot of neglect from my being poorly last year, and a winter of blown litter. I am really looking forward to being able to get the garden cleared up and cut back, and lightly raked, and getting my two little cloches down to warm the soil for sowing some early seed (which normally I'd have done a fortnight ago and be getting the early seed in this week or next!). 

    Those sort of cool but bright spring days, I am happy to have come along, yes... I've loved this snow, but I am horribly aware of the terrible price we will all be paying for the rest of the year, people having to find money for well over a week of unexpected fuel bills at a time when the average temp is 10C, but also the potential damage in farming terms - delays in sowing crops, damage to just-sown, maybe early blossom on fruit trees - the hedgerows may be very bare next autumn from this, so wildlife may suffer... 

    So much as I've loved this, and am happily enjoying the last days of it, but I'll be happy to see a primrose or daff by next weekend...

    The radar looks okay for you.

    Using the West Midlands one as an example, but the Met Office mentioned outbreaks of sleet and snow across all areas, possibly giving further accumulations is places. And yet, a number of us have had a few cm plus of accumulations, including some of those in the East Midlands. So it does seem as though the Met Office are under-estimating this event.
