Might be a good thing, we will probably stay cold then! 

Otherwise we'd still have a snow warning, or perhaps they are updating them?

Strange all models show snow even the fabled Met app and BBC from Thursday until Saturday be interesting maybe they think it's going to keep going further south.

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

I'd rather get some proper snow out of this cold spell than being cold and dry.

Warning has been extended into Saturday, so forecast doesn't make sense.

Light powdery snow just starting here in Edgbaston. I see the forecast for today has just been upgraded with heavy snow forecast between 12 and 3pm today. I think we really are down to nowcasting so who knows what's coming Friday/Saturday?

Well so far this so called beast from the east is a very over hyped pile of ?. I no it’s early days but give me a good proper north westerly any day over this. Iv seen more from a ten minute shower from that than this rubbish so far

Looking around the other regional's it seems a lot got well not a lot from the so called polar low further north. Which in my eye's shows how hard it is to predict where and when heavy snow will fall. Enjoy the cold and hope for showers blowing inland as I think that's our best bet. The problem with this so called beast is its been way overhyped by the more knowledgeable in the mod thread. And most probably because there based where snow is more likely to fall. 

I dont think its been overhyped, th mod thread is for the interpretation and discussion of the models. If anything the SSW over delivered as it smashed the Canadian vortex allowing the block progress westerly at pace. Its not over yet. The end of the week could still be epic so for now its a case of sit tight and see

Give it chance mate. Already today has upgraded shows heavy snow in a few hours for Brum and light snow later. Friday, Saturday and Sunday is not yet decided by a long shot so judge it in when we are basking in mild South Westerlies lol. Chin up Snow brings out the frustration in us all just go and take a butcher's in the SE Thread.

Yeah you could be right. Much rather have the fronts make it here and get loads of snow then turning milder than just stay cold and pretty much dry. Just me though

There's a decent band of precipitation that made land over Mablethorpe and heading over Lincolnshire, to Leicestershire then towards Coventry and the eastern side of the West midlands. That should give Coventry a lovely snowy mix in a couple of hours. Looks heavier so shouldn't blow out. It matches with the Met Office apps and BBC forcast for 'heavy snow' around 11 am :)

Clutching at straws maybe, but It's how I see it :)

Today was the first morning this winter I actually woke up feeling a little cold. My bedroom was 5C  and the rest of the house between 7 and 8C :cold: 

All you guys praying for this cold to last, please spare a thought for those few still without central heating

A short spell of moderate snow about an hour ago has given a cover of about 1cm here; just a few flakes drifting down now.

I think we'll have to wait for snow showers moving in from the North Sea for any significant snow as the GFS got the little area of low pressure spot on, moving across northern England, into north Wales and out over the Irish Sea.

Woke up and opened the curtains at 6.30 to find it had snowed quite a lot in Crewe, got to work in Stoke and its still snowing here although all schools are open!

Everyone dissapointed so far yet the gfs at least has not showed precip in the form of showers covering our region until midday onwards from today so anyone who has had snow far should see it as a good start.

What should be hitting Leicster now should hit Coventry in an hour, quite a large but light area of snow :)

 

Then a break, and a heavier band just behind it, both following the Mablethorpe - Leicster - Coventry path. Maybe a new type of streamer ;)
