MIA posted in the model thread that this was the second-coldest 7-day period of late Feb/Mar, second only to 1947, going all the way back to 1772.

That's pretty amazing... 

@Midlands Ice Age - did I get that right? It was from memory, forgive me if I lost a century here or there!

Yep the data is correct....

But I posted it in here not the MOD. I tend to stay out of the MADhouse as much as possible.:D

I'm trying to remember, couldn't have been Wednesday as I was at school all day.  Feel like it was yesterday but don't recall any sun...

Actually there was a bit of sun yesterday, low cloud cleared and could see frontal cloud coming up from south

Must have been then, it felt fabulous, a little hope for the warm days ahead once we've had our winter fun.

You Pelsall folk are getting greedy! :D

Whereabouts in Pelsall are you?  My grandma lived at the bottom of Mouse Hill and my cousin lives on Church Road.

For the past few days, have made comparisons between METO and BBC weather forecasts (short-term only), surprisingly BBC have been spot on for my region. Don't know about any of you guys?

👍🏻🤣🤣 nest common, faces pelsall north common , beautiful scenery made better with heavy snow , only 6 houses on road so any more than 3 inch of snow and it's fun getting out , first year we moved in was 6 months before the infamous 2010 cold spell , couldn't get out of road a couple of times , and got down to -15 just before Xmas

flakes should be bigger as air is less cold, wetter too, but may not stick on all surfaces as the wind is howling

Well BBC are saying sleet for Walsall for next few hours when it's clearly snow as per reports and radar. But generally I agree, in short term (2-3 days), BBC have been better. They just don't like comitting on long term forecasts

Maybe an hour of snow coming up for me, guessing from the radar. Places a little further east, say Coventry, could do quite a bit better. :)

Probably good for snow here, as Stoke is normally one of the coldest spots in the Midlands. Just often a lack of precipitation (No lack when it's rain though!).

BBC forecast for Coventry was light snow starting at 8:00pm,which is not too bad, METO way of the mark, what about METO for you?
