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!

That's not how it works. Under precipitation that temperature could easily fall to near-freezing. 

I know how it works but it wasn't forecast to get anywhere near 4 degrees today, even now they're still saying for it to be 1 to 2 degrees, it's just so incorrect.

My little one has a party in Stourbridge at 5:15 today, and we are in Sedgley, not sure I fancy driving across at rush hour as barely a dusting and you just know there will be gridlock!

If there is precipitation around at that time  im pretty certain it will be snow at that altitude  im a little concerned about my drive back also

Indeed! Luckily I am on a half day today so at least I'll get back from work in Brum without any drama. (Train to Coseley then short drive up the hill to Sedgley)

Oh ye of little faith!

I got my elevation wrong, we are actually 84m above sea level.

You must have had a few "thunderstorm misses me by 10 miles" letdowns as well?

My brother in law lives in Iowa and he always updates us on the weather when he phones.  The climate there seems to be very much "all or nothing"; last time he said he had 8" snow and single digits (F) temps, other times in the winter we have had snow when he had nothing. 

 

The beauty of thunderstorm let downs over there is that because of the landscape, you still can get the pleasure of distant cbs lighting up like lightbulbs!

Very much agree with the all of nothing. Winter 2005/6 over there was a perfect example. Very cold and snowy December. Mild and wet with no snow at all for the rest of the winter as the likes of Washington/New York kept getting hit over and over again.

The mild sectors that drifted across the Ohio Valley from the Gulf of Mexico were huge pains in the backside!

Think I might have to make a trip back home to the Midlands for Thursday, don't really want to miss what could turn out to be my best shot at significant snow this winter. I haven't been keeping up with the forecasts, but assuming the Midland's cops it, what totals are we looking at? Thanks
