    I think I might get hysterical if it carries on like this! ??

    This is an event that just keeps giving! The snow started in our area 12 hours ago now, after spending the day thinking it might not even make it this far north. Now I'm sat here watching it snowing heavier than ever with the snow really piling up. Happy days!

    its hoofing it down too.

    Have you left yet? I wouldn’t even attempt it.. chewton blocked due to Jack knifed lorry, single lane traffic down to Wells on the Bristol hill and people stuck/turning round.. not sure what the Shepton Road is like but probably the same

    So nice seeing all the snow reports on the news for the south and south west, instead of usually  everywhere else in the country but the south and south west! ?

    I really do think this now warrants an amber warning across the central parts of our region. Road conditions out there are appalling. Absolutely pouring down here in North Wiltshire.

    4cms level snow here and it's just started to come back with very, very fine grains.

    Anyone know what the chances are of that curl of snow hitting the south coast?  Met and BBC are at odds just for a change!!

    The main roads are passable but don’t attempt mendip (can’t see your location) 5 inches here in wells

    Coming from Cleeve. So Burrington road is out of the question then. Perhaps A371 via Cheddar better.

    Someone did say on the FB community page that the cheddar Road was dodgy but it was a couple of hours ago. Traffic is moving on the A371 to Shepton outside my house

    I really wouldn't bother. No idea what the main roads are like, reports of jack knifed lorries and stuck/abandoned cars.

    Dont really understand the Meto amber warning currently. Heaviest snow risk seems to be to the west between Newbury and Bristol.
