    Ok, I have to reply to this because it's misleading the entire thread, iv studied radars and the weather all my life, the low pressure that formed along the south side of the main low is pushing east,

    Nathan "not a weatherman" Rao of the Express says "Army on Standby as heaviest SNOWFALL hits in next 24 hours" What a bellend!

    I live in Crewe and work in Stoke, on Friday evening Crewe had zero snow and Stoke (10 miles SE and higher up) had quite the dumping!!

    Looking at the forecast and charts for overnight what is to be expected for Stoke?

    I never trust NW systems through the Cheshire Gap ?

    Last winter in December Shrewsbury did very well out of the Cheshire gap. We had big long showers one after another. One of the best I can remember

    Must admit I don't understand the excitement over just a few cms from showers. Why can't we have several foot like they get in the States and Europe. Lol

    Met Office still saying hills only. Total nonsense. They always say that in this setup and I always get clobbered. Look at how good the parameters are!

    Tbh I’ll be surprised if there’s much at low ground but don’t think you need to go up much to get some

    Snow is snow, whether that be a few cms or a few feet. Whilst we all want to see 6ft of snow and drifts that bury houses, living on this island a few cms of snow is an enjoyable rarity in itself.

    Met Office regional forecast now changed to 'Snow to low levels at times' - They always say high ground and we always end up with a good dumping of snow in these setups. I wouldn't call 146 m 'High ground'.

    Is that for the showers that follow or the front?

    The showers. It looks like the showers should continue for some well into Tuesday night, if not Wednesday morning. I reckon there's a good chance of snow settling even to quite low levels after dark on Tuesday, maybe earlier if they're heavy and/or persistent enough. Will be shocked if I don't do well out of this. North westerlies are the snow jackpot for this area normally! Just so long as the wind direction is right.

    The trough on the fax charts will inhance the showers, at this rate it’s a snow event all day long.

    Well I suppose we take what we can get!

    For me (and probably most on here) the snow is something to be welcomed in whatever quantity we get. Although it can be a pain for travel (not so much for me as my commute is very local - but I appreciate it makes if difficult for some), snowfall is magical. It reminds me of being a kid again when it seemed to come out of nowhere, looking at an ashen sky with huge flakes falling.

    Not holding out too much hope here in the East Mids but you never know.,

     

    And thanks to everyone on here for their insight. I never knew there were so many like minded weather enthusiasts out there!

    Then the potential for a Cheshire Gap streamer through the night and into Wednesday morning. I love the Cheshire Gap since moving here ?
