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!

    If you have then at the ready, post your temps, DP's & elevation. Let's see if we can squeeze a few flakes out of the band of precip.

    Temp: 3.1C
    DP: 1.4C

    Some parts of central and north midlands could get 5 to 10cms!

    If you look at the chart depths on euro4 some places in the Peak District, I’m thinking around Buxton and higher villages and like of kinder it’s 20-40cm

    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.

    E'lys best here, they rule, from NW'lys in Stafford -10 uppers required for proper snow, wet snow can fall -7 to -9

    Last Friday I had about an inch of snow from -2 uppers in a southerly wind. Weird. It really caught me out.

    All I no is we quite often get a good streamer set up here from a northwesterly so if it’s cold enough we could get quite a bit and say the uppers are more than cold enough once this front passes through

    Ignore that, from previous experience trust me nw wind here is pretty good and can get a constant run of showers at times.

    the forecasts will be way out when it comes to showers imo

    to me that seems accurate with just -7 uppers, at low levels anyway, still confident of falling wet snow tomorrow, but for a proper fall need to be 200m+ plus

    That’s why I always do well here probably. I leave redditch with rain and sleet and get home to whiteout. Happens all the time, but do think anything from about 150m will do pretty good tomorrow particularly in the evening if there’s any precipitation left

    ‘mon the Cheshire Gap!

    Really don’t understand why people seem to be dismissive of there being much if any snow away from the highest ground. All the parameters look very good for snow in late winter nevermind mid winter!

    Seems to be the case that every north westerly gets downplayed here only for several inches of snow to blanket down. Can’t understand it.
