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

back then too, these systems would track further north, bringing snow to Staffs/Cheshire and the south rain and 10 degrees, now they track south, giving us nothing and the south snow, and rain south of the channel

It’s definitely still moving north so who knows

Just to clear some facts right about Leicester and other East Midlands areas. We have right now a NE flow/direction of wind. The only way to get any ppn in the area is either having showers that have developed on our NE or the main front moves NE and have a convergence. The latter is very unlikely. I'm in UK for more than 5 years now and I haven't experienced any significant convergence tbh. That said, I'll be surprised if Leicester and surroundings will even see some flurries tonight.

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.

MIA

Will keep an eye on that!

And French Moisture.....ooo errr Monsieur!😮

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. 

oh, you mean the "they can't tell the weather tomorrow, let alone next week" brigade?  and the "If I want to know what the weather is going to do, i stick my head out the window" empasis on the 'going to do' bit 😄

what a bunch of idiots

Aye. I remember that happening many times when I lived in London. Several times I went to bed with the TV forecasts predicting snow, only to wake up to rain. That’s why I got into looking at the computer models for myself; I want to know why snow predictions kept going wrong.

Do you think the snow would have no problem settling even if it is light as the ground is cold enough or???

I'm pretty certain that Leicester will at the very least see a dusting tonight. We'll see how it goes though.

That stronger and more intense band on the radar spreads from Devon to Northern France. Creeping north and as @Midlands Ice Age says links up with precip in the channel, definitely heading North!  Actually great viewing and wondering how far North it will swing!

Didn't initially think Black Country would see the snow earlier.  However it's now looking game on.  Ignore BBC forcasts

Snow creeping into London. Going to check in with my family later and see how it’s looking there.

Well my weather station is predicting precipitation, and it's normally right

I had a guy on the local Facebook weather group  been insisting for the past 2 days that its only going to be rain here because that's what his weather station was predicting! 

That said, so far we have nothing at all in Evesham

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!

It's toddling northwards at a bit of a lick!

I understand comparing global weather patterns over the decades to understand how our climate is changing. So please could you elaborate further and explain how these global patterns might start making very similar weather systems in our little part of the World nudge just a meagre 50 to 100 miles. When looking at how our weather is changing, surely a more global perspective is needed?
