You can see on the precipitation type radar its turned to snow on the back edge over wales and northwest england!!

That just uses some model prediction to work out if what precip there is would likely be snow or rain. It's not actually what's falling.

Some birds are going to roost but others still manically feeding and singing here. When all goes quiet then I know something is on its way!

A few spots of rain in Nottingham with the ground fairly dry. Not convinced we'll see any settled snow. Looks like it will be mostly rain with it turning to wet snow before the band dies out. Thursday/Friday looks more promising

Still raining here in central Birmingham. Heaviest core of the band seems to be fizzling out somewhat, although could strengthen again as it's quite an active front.

It's lost a bit of energy in the last 30 minutes, looking at the radar, just light rain here.

Funny how the front is getting heavier as it pushes east of me.

Waste of time all this marginal rubbish, won’t settle even if it does turn to snow. If we get anything Thursday it will all be mush by Friday afternoon. Not sure about anyone else, but unless it’s a proper cold outbreak it don’t interest me these days.

After 2/3 hours of rain it is now snowing, the projective radar was showing the change over would be about 1.45pm unbelievable.

It looks like it's going according to plan here.

For some hours, we've had SWerly rain.

That's now veered round to Werly and sleet. 

If the forecast was correct it should now continue to veer round to NWerly and bring us the coveted Cheshire Gap Streamer, and THAT is what will bring us the snow.

Don't fret about the Welsh mountains. They never were relevant to today's snow chances - it's this next bit where it veers to NWerly that brings the snow down to the Midlands, and across...

Only takes a small burst of thicker snow and it seems to be settling. A few top ups throughout the afternoon could make rush hour interesting for certain areas.
