Is there any chance of further wintery showers today or is it just a purely cold and dry day? 

Looks like it will be cold, dry and sunny all day today, but there may be a spell of rain, sleet and possibly snow later on tonight/early next morning! ❄️

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 next week and maybe even this weekend may bring the opportunity for further wintriness. Although, after the way yesterday went, it's probably best I keep my expectations low ?

certainly chances, but no more than dustings, temporary coverings at best, no proper strong heights oop norf, lows cannot undercut

Jan too early really, still better chances Feb to Apr

Shame really. The dusting that we did get last night isn't melting much because the sun is still weak but once past February its more difficult to get longer lasting snow covering.

If we could get some spells like December 2017, which also lacked northern blocking, that would be pretty good. Those north westerlies can be awesome here when the wind direction is just right. Just wasn't the case last night.

Weird distribution of snow today I noticed. Little north of Hanley, virtually none on the A500 and then Trentham had quite a bit.

Then it was spoardic in nature until Stafford where it looked deeper and then on the M6 down to around the M54 there was a nice coating. And at Quinton there was none!

Oh and just been to Brown Edge (10 mins away but into the Moorlands) and there's a lovely sugar coating of snow (the sort that doesn't cause an issue on roads and pavements but looks great on the heather moors)

many marginal days like this, saw cars some with just ice on, some with smattering of snow, some with thick snow on

I live not far at all from Trentham and I only had a dusting, but more than the area around my work in Stoke town centre. I often notice a change in the amount of snow over very small distances in Stoke.

If Trentham had quite a bit, then it shows how close by the showers were skimming to my south. I’m only about 2 and a half miles from Trentham.

Hi all, woke up to a dusting this morning and max-out today at 2.1c and the ice and snow in shaded areas stayed all day, 

Dropped very sharply when I got home 0.3c at 5pm.

Don’t be surprised to see a few wintry showers overnight.

One to keep an eye...Saturday into Sunday, more Sunday though, it’s all about timing as a cold northerly sets in.

I know most would like a Narnia landscape atm and trust me I’m still in hope of that, but we could be in a Zonal South Westerly ? and that’s no good to anyone.

For me I seen my first Snowfall of the Winter yesterday evening...Happy Days.

Currently, clear skies and a very sharp frost....-1.4c :cold:

Wonder if that precipitation currently in the North will give us some snow later as the MO said it is going to drift south over the region with some rain, sleet and Hill Snow possible.

Yes my eyes are firmly on it ?

I was looping it and it is heading towards us too, the area in the Irish sea is the main one im watching ??

Doesn’t look westerly to me, it’s defo moved south but maybe not enough pep to make it in roads.

The sliding trough a little further North is more for the east if you asked me
