Some lovely cold rain to greet my journey to work this morning, hopefully a slight dry slot after 11am before the taps are turned on again later this afternoon.  Not even the slightest hint of a wintry flake before the rain started...chance of hill snow lol.  Should now be re-branded in our warming climate, as the 'very highest tops of the hills' snow (if your lucky)

Fingers crossed Sunday at least see a few wintry showers in the offering.... not expecting it to settle though.

Very strange.  No warnings and we probably have more snow than we have had this winter.

Absolute blizzard outside covering everything I didn’t expect this at all only drew the curtains because it seemed rather bright outside for 0715 and there it was. I’m sure it won’t stay but a lovely surprise!

Yeah and it’s proper snow, crunchy under food and not that soggy wet crap we’ve endured most of the winter.

srill coming down as well.

Decent and your only 30m above my sea level height, and just very wet here.  Maybe your slightly further northern elevation has helped.  Sad to say it will turn to rain even in your parts later on.

Nice! Amazing how much difference just a small amount of increased elevation makes. Here at 165m it is raining!

Just seen the BBC weather you refer to CS. Wow! That is showing the region getting hammered with snow on Monday night into Tuesday.

I don't expect it either. Metoffice edging their bets saying rain or snow. GFS not really buying it. The virtual snow looks great on the video forecast though!

Does BBC weather follow Met Office warnings? If Met Office release a warning, do the BBC weather follow? I know the Met Office lost the BBC contract.

ITV still have the Met Office on board?

ITV signed up the metoffice on a new contract during Oct 2016. Who provides BBC weather now?

Interesting.... It's snowing here at my house and settling, but maybe 100-150 feet below me in the village it's green and looks like sleet... Just seen on Facebook that someone had their journey halted in 3" snow at about 450' asl. Kinda marginal like...

 I wouldn’t expect anything to settle below 100 m tomorrow daytime due to insolation; overnight may be a different matter.  never get much if anything from easterlies so couldn’t care less about whether one happens or not next week, unless we get sliders/undercuts.

The BBC have to follow and use met office warnings even if their forecast doesn’t agree with it! Met office warnings overide any other forecast.
