Yep, falling snow in Telford TF3 as well - proper decent flakes too, not tiny ones. Just drifting about in the breeze, not enough to settle by a long way, but distinctly proper snowflakes!

Editing 22 minutes later to say it's not stopped, it's got heavier and I think it is considering settling...!

A few flakes drifting around in the air here. Not actually our first of the winter, we've had one or two flurries already. One at the end of November and some very early last week.

Looking ahead to the next week, at this point in time, there is some interest but nothing to get hopes up about yet. Possibilities are always there though so don't want to comment too much right now.

On a personal preference, I work on the Metro and I'm on night shifts next week so could really do without frozen points, icy overhead wires etc.

During the 'Beast from the East' last March, I had some of the hardest shifts I've ever worked. Our passengers were so impressed that we kept the trams running but they never knew just how much stress and effort made it possible.

I have a week off in two weeks time...it can snow then thank you!

Not great, thicknesses support snow, but need winds NW'ly, not WNW'ly, this chart shows snow coming from cheshire Gap through Stockport down through Derbyshire, missing the north midlands

Seriously, there's so few of them you probably haven't noticed. Not really worth looking out for in all honesty. I only noticed as I was letting the cat in. If that heavier precipitation gets here, I suspect it'll be rain by then sadly.

Ours has stopped now, but that was a good solid 45 minutes of very pretty fluffy snowflakes! No settling, but just really lovely and wintry and exciting! 

It seems Telford does well out of Cheshire Gap streamers - our astonishing Fri Dc 8th 2017 was one of those!

I see the various apps show snow but previous experience these seem to be not that accurate so always nice to check in with the clever folk on here.

Best nip to Tesco and stock up ... 🤣

Doesn't look like METO are going for it tonight. Only warning is for up north. Temps hovering around the 2c or 3c area for much of midlands, so might just be on the wrong side of marginal for most.

As long as DP remains under zero and T at 3 or below it's going to be snow or at least sleet. I can't see though the DP remaining below zero.
