Well, I certainly didn't see any forecast for today which started with snow! They ALL started with rain turning to snow, all the ones I saw...

So you're writing off what's forecast to happen this afternoon, evening and overnight... it may indeed not happen as snow, but since we're still five or more hours beforehand...! 🙂

exactly this. Still hope for later as the band moves across. Snow, if it does arrive will be later on this afternoon and evening I think?

Temp up to 2.5C, so not surprised with rain, maybe Thursday could bring some of the white stuff down, but looking two days ahead is still unpredictable.

We were shafted last Tuesday by timings and rain before, today will be no different. No accumulations here today unless the Cheshire gap gets going tonight.

I know it was incorrect, but the MetOffice local forecast for Wolves is/was starting with light snow, then sleet, then finishing with heavy snow, so it's just a case of watching and waiting.

Happy to be proved wrong but I'd bet every penny I have that not a flake will fall here today or overnight. All these events seem quite hyped up and then end up being a wet, soggy fart.

Are you sure your DP is -1.5?

Light drizzle here too. Heavier rain wasn't forecasted to start until around lunchtime so looking at the radar, the forecast is looking accurate so far. Then hopefully, the changeover to snow later this afternoon.

My concern is the rain band moving through before the colder air can dig in. We've seen it happen many times before. It's also a scenario that used to happen a lot when I lived in Columbus, Ohio. A lot of people think that it's only us here who gets screwed over a lot in the winter. In the lower Midwest, the rewards can be massive, but the disappointments are not only numerous, but are huge. We're not talking about little mild sectors that tip the dew point above freezing like we get here. I remember being under severe snow warnings yet a big mild sector drifting up from the Gulf of Mexico goes further north than predicted and suddenly, you're looking at heavy rain and 15c!

Being on the cusp is something that the UK is best at!

2.3 and 76% it was showing half hour ago, now it's 2.2 and 81% = -0.7

Must admit I was surprised how low it was

The met office app forecasts have been going mental every couple of hours i started this morning with a forecast of rain then sleet then heavy snow from around 5 now its got heavy snow symbol from 12 till 8, its not to be trusted.

Having said that those who are already giving up im pretty sure are giving up far far too early, this is very much a look at radar and out your window time not an app time
