    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!

    Looks like a streamer of snow heading this way now, usual high spots in the Peak District could see some decent accumulations looking at the radar

    looks rain posted in NW thread by NWsnow, but cold air meant to be behind todays rain, our chances tonight when winds turn NW'ly behind the rain

    There’s more chance of rain there due to close to Irish Sea, seen it all before

    The trough can be seen quite clearly now over Wales  should be close around midday   hopefully the Welsh Hills dont do to much damage   after that as the winds turn more north westerly  hopefully the streamer will come into play.

    trough is rain though, our chances after that when cold air comes in behind, with NW/NNW winds

    Rain?.  Welsh thread says all snow.  However height will play a role.

    Aye, and when it reaches here, heat of the day, usual areas of course above 200m will be mostly snow

    Agree with that a few sleetyshowers here this morning winds due to go more to NW this afternoon with snow showers affecting  more of Liverpool,Cheshire and the NW Midlands  this Evening and overnight Carol on breakfast said that these areas could get a covering overnight.

    Bewilders me that the pros always dismiss there being much if any snow in this region away from high ground/hills from this setup. Met Office warnings still insisting settling snow will be above 200 m. I will be truly amazed if the north and west Midlands don't see a few cm to lower levels than that. Would be the first time this sort of setup has failed to deliver here.

    Hit and miss to the east in my humble opinion but you might get a slice of the pie in Melton. ?

    A lot of people in the NW thread are reporting rain/sleet.
