    Sorry guys. My mums still in a really bad way. I just wanted to post to quickly say tonight in my opinin is being underestimated. The trend today has been to keep the front as all snow

    Around 50cm has fallen across the highest parts of the North York Moors yesterday. Went for a walk this morning at Newgate Bank. Around 30cm of fresh powdery snow underfoot and quite difficult to

    Last one from me, great day...just stopped now so 11 hours of snow 👍👏👏 Hope those that missed out get some soon 🤞👍

    It did this earlier for 2 updates then came back.

    Those echoes do not seem right to me.

    70 miles of heavy echoes gone in 20 minutes?

    🤔🤔🤔

    BBC has heavy snow into the evening for our location (I'm in Wath) if it's to be believed....

    All things being equal Saturday is synoptically simpler as the triple point is well south so we have an occlusion.

    But it's also moving through with much less resistance so there's a bigger chance that warm uppers just take over and the surface air gets mixed out.

    I'd be more confident of snow to rain than nothing though.

    Still coming down moderately now but we have somehow managed to stay  in one of the last spots of green radar return on the Netweather radar. Definitely a weakening affair though. Fantastic day

    You're not far from me (Chapeltown) but ours is only showing light snow for the rest of the afternoon

    Must admit, I'm a bit surprised we don't have more depths here. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a moan, I'm delighted that I've got some and I'll be going out in it after work. However, it's been snowing constantly since about 7:30am and it was already settling come 8am so I thought we'd have more of a build up. We're probably at 1-2 inch but footprints left on my road from early this morning are still clearly visible. Just curious as to why that may be

    Yes it's been a very good event - not least since my school shut so I've had the day off work 🙂 Down the hill in Tinshill we've had probably twice the depth of snow as last Friday. I would say about 10 - 15cm.

    Some fantastic pictures on here today - great to see so many of you have got a decent amount of lying snow. All rain unfortunately in our part of the region (the story of the winter so far for us) and it's still chucking it down. I may have a drive into the Wolds later to see if they fared any better, but it's flood watches we'll have to worry about over the next few days, not snow.

    It's not been that heavy for long periods, Friday was actually heavier most of the day here near Central Leeds. The difference is that the temperature today is lower.

    Also worth saying the Met Office are forecasting -7C tonight for my parents (7 miles from Leeds) so most places will see the snow freeze.

    I was up at a similar time but didn't bother looking through the blinds as I was expecting rain/sleet so got a nice surprise when I finally did look out at 8.00. Probably about 2-3 inches here now...

    I would treat those app forecasts with a lot of caution. The radar is the only real guide we have now.

    Still snowing lightly here but definitely eased off. I'd say 4 inches now though so a great day!

    It's sliding off some surfaces but temps should drop below freezing tonight and then 1c predicted tomoz so hopefully we'll hold on to cover until Saturday

    Met going for heavy snow until 6pm and then light snow upto 9pm. Not sure the radar is indicating this. Are we expecting it to intensify?

    Parts of North Leeds are stuck under a heavier echo.

    Light snow still falling here. 

    Been out for a stroll, measured 5cm on a universally accepted surface (the wheelie bin lid).

    Average snow depth of 10cm so far. Max depth of 12cm on grass. Still snowing. Thin fine, but fairly moderate.....

    Yes think there was only a few mins that we went blue on that radar.

    Intensity picked up again last 15 mins.

    This heavy wet snow could cause problems to power lines and tree branches. Our telephone lines were sagging from the weight of it, had to shake it off.

    A bit lighter here now, but still reasonably moderate small flakes.  From Radar looks like the heavier ppn has moved further South.  Measured depth twice, once before 12.00 (6cm) and then again just after 2pm (9cm), which I’d consider a decent return since 7am this morning at 100m asl.

    I'm in Wath. We still have snow to the north of us by the looks of it so might be able to seek out a few more centimetres if we're lucky...
