    Would this be the convergence I was talking about? Kudos to the models for picking it up IF that is the case though.

    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!

    I'll be happy just see some snow falling, I love watching the snow fall in front of the lampost, it's therapeutic. Sad I know ???

    I have stood underneath a lamppost before and snowbathed. I love the silence of it ?

    Not sad! that is why we're all here. Nature is always better than watching the utter crap on TV. 

     

    Fingers crossed for our area and other midlanders.

    Right on the edge of it here in WR9, nothing happening yet but looking at the radar it’s moving. As soon as lamppost observations confirm flakes I’ll report in!

    Anyone else think we are sad lol? We all no we are but it’s the way we are. It’s also depressing when it all looked so good a couple of days ago to nothing and now the hope it’s pepping up a bit and still moving north

    I don't think there's such thing when you're passionate about something. I love football, but when people dissect every game or get worked up when their team loses, I often think...I'm exactly like that too...just with the weather.

    That bit west of northampton seems to be expanding, hopefully it continues to expand and move north ?

    Never take radar as gospel, it's a developing situation, don't give up hope

    Good work, SSIB! Unlikely to come this far north but it's not over yet.

    2 inches is only about 5cm though mate,  certainly possible tonight. I reckon Leicester will see prolonged light snowfall through tonight. Won't look impressive but it'll add up by the morning. The PPN looks to stall and slowly die away over Central areas overnight. 

    Nice to see you still around Andy. Looks like your namesake Andy King is heading north on the M1 to us tonight!

    Same. It's funny sat in the office at work with all the plebs chatting utter crap about the weather. I have to really resist the urge to correct them all the time.

    Haha. Yeah. I get people asking me what’s happening with the snow and saying they hope it doesn’t snow while I’m thinking ‘I hope it bloody does!’.

    know nobody either, but everyone agrees that winters are not what they used to be, got worse every decade upto the christmas pudding, 00's worse than 90's, 90's worse than 80's, all the way like that until the 40's

    wow - avoided the radar for a good hour or so and what a difference!  

    View with animation on gives a bit of a clue as to what might happen.  If the pink blobs make it as far as me I might go for a walk (unless its past midnight or something..)☺️

    Hope it picks up more and across the East and West mids!

    Been a bit better this decade. Not the same as a few decades ago though.

    More good news ...

    On the latest radar precipitation is developing in the North Sea (off East Anglia) and just off the Thames Est.

    It seems to be joining up with the French moisture.

    This might just inject more moisture for us!

    It is what I was hoping would happen.

    Fingers crossed.
