Ive been out and about it's just rain, so glad that freezing rain didn't happen here, but God it feels so cold in the rain here, no snow anywhere in the Midlands it seems.

On the Net weather Snow app its showing all rain, but in the last 30mins all so, its starting to show snow in the North on our region :cold:

Had freezing rain twice here that I can remember, 9th Dec 2010, started as snow, then 45 mins or so of freezing rain, slippy as 'ell, 25th Jan 2013, snow at times but also freezing rain, what a mess on morning of 26th

Forecasters near the mark really we were in the yellow zone for snow and ice met office is performing shockingly at the moment and have been for the last 16 months 

A warning is not a forecast. A warning warns for the potential of something that COULD happen therefore it might be an idea to prepare just in case.

Too many people look at the warnings without going into the detail of a forecast.

Cool north westerly around Christmas but not cold enough for any snow. This December is pretty pants. Thank goodness signs further ahead are very good.

The runs always seem to show something different each weekend, only to revert to the week day settings on monday.  maybe.........lack of data? 😉

Hi all, it’s 🤫 all round regarding the weather atm, no Winter Wonderland for Christmas but things seem to be looking good for coldies come January, in the hunt for proper cold maybe on its way as the SSW is now upon us, but we’ve still got to wait for it’s effects to take place as the cold will be displaced to lower regions from the northern extremes.....it could be and hopefully very busy here soon....can’t wait to see some amazing charts as I’m sure they will start appearing by the end of this week....very exciting times head 

Merry Christmas to all.

DWW :santa-emoji:

Merry Christmas fellow Midlanders. Santa might not have brought us some snow, but at least he’s managed a frost 😊

i have a feeling this is the calm before the (January) storm - fingers crossed!

Yes MIA.... in the Med 🙄 makes ya sick, but Mt Enta I believe is over 3300m so it would be well below freezing 🥶

I remember going up Mt teide in tenerife in the summer,  ASL it was 34c, hour an half later at 3700m it was -2....in shorts aswell 🥴 lol!

Bish, if your out there.....Merry Christmas 🎄

Hi all, hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas 🎄 

Now’t much to talk about atm, the models are still struggling to get a grip with the so called SSW but I’m very confident of Winter will land across the UK and the models will start showing this trend very soon but for now we may have a high risk of freezing fog and daytime temps barely above freezing after the new year, if the fog persists during the day that is (Thurs/Fri/Sat) but for sure it’s getting colder this forthcoming week.....at least it’s something for now 😉

Gosh, so quiet and glum in here....

So, my New Years present to all Midlanders is... we will definitely have a blizzard on 17th January, because I’m having my windows replaced!

There, don’t say I don’t give you anything 😉

Happy 2019 🎉

cloud here seemed to move in from the east, NNE wind will bring cloud in, direct north all midlands would be clear i'd think
