Icon 18z does keep the strength of the band for longer, Stoke does have a chance or some but I wouldn't expect much more than a few cm but again there's so many variables so it's going to be a nowcast situation.

No. I just think it’s hilarious that as soon as any snow showers get a sniff of this area they completely fall apart. Happens every time. That or they dive away to my east, south or west at the last moment.

Oh look. They’re disintegrating into nothing! What a shock!

At least I have Thursday to look forward to, with the models coming into agreement to stop the snow line just to my south. Can’t wait to miss out yet again.

In your Defence the showers do seem to die right before they get to Stoke... must be the chavs veering it the otherway? ( I live in tunstall lol)

Omg don't get me started, was driving back from work in cov and it seemed like everyone was going sooooo slow just because of a little bit of light snow falling that wasn't even settling. I got road rage 😂😂

Same here, on way back from Cov half 5 ish.  Could not believe what I was seeing! 😂

Loads of congestion on some roads as well.....for rain! 😂

3-3 wasnt it Bluenose ?   Good result really.   I wont talk about Uniteds....  

I shouldve been on here last week predicting snow for this coming weekend.  First time we've arranged to go out after xmas...   it was a banker to be dodgy weather.  😟

Is this the midlands thread or is it will stoke on trent get snow or not?? 😜

Anyways jokes aside 18z has the front a touch north which is very good news for the whole of the midlands!!

Yeah not bad considering we was atrocious first 30 mins and then whole of second half with 10 men but to concede in last few seconds of injury time feels like a loss.

loads of snow Thursday will make up for it though

That's where they showed the significant snow would be. Any further north looks much less.

Knew these things never get far enough north and east, they always stall around Birmingham and then pivot and head SE

Taking Brum as the central point  arpege gives around 10 cm  icon around 1 foot   hopefully most will see some snow

All models plus Hi res models are NOT showing what the UKMO is showing or even what's on the BBC graphics.

The only thing I did notice, there wasn't any time on that screenshot, if that was teatime that would be right ???

Lol it’s been a few hours of oh no it’s further south again then north what next? South coast or Scotland, it’s over 24 hours away so maybe a bit of time to relax before the next panic of where it will be.

not sure about a roller coaster this I wouldn’t no what to call it

They didn't give a time.

The ICON, GFS, GFSP, Aperge and Hirlam all have it further north, but I'd much rather the ECM and UKMO did. 99 times out of a hundred, the latter models are more accurate in this setup.

HI RES Models wiped the floor regarding the GFS, ECM and even the UKMO in these setups (last year Feb 18)

Latest GFSP now much further south too. Misses the North Midlands completely. 

Just need the old GFS to come on board and then all 4 main models will be in agreement. Like poetry in motion.
