    Snizzzle has returned in Hinckely, however according to the radar the band is 15 miles to the north and still edgly slowly northwest. Very strange

    Assuming it doesn't peter too much, a nice coasting after dark will be nice as things start to refreeze!

    Guilty. 😂 It certainly has pushed further north than expecting especially given the southward movement further west quite a long while ago now. Still snowing here even though little shown on radar

    About 3 inches here just west of Bham City centre.  Warley Woods like Narnia. 

    I would expect the system to slowly start its journey south back through the West Mids on its western edge. But looks like it will fragment as pushes back through. 

    the northern extent of this has been a surprise.

    Nice covering now in Deeping ( just north of Peterborough) looks like we may have a couple of hours more yet?

    Question is if this does move south how much will it degrade. Its prob gone 20 mile too far north for Hinckely to have been one of the sweet spots but more snow that I expected

    Warley Woods was fab on 28th December, felt like being in an American film!

    An update from Alton, Staffordshire Moorlands ST10 4.

    Well it somehow arrived. A morning of light snow flurries wetting the ground then around 1pm started thick and fast and still going, measurement of 5cms of snow cover at the moment and still blizzard like conditions with heavy snow! 
     

    amazed at the amount we are getting, the most we’ve had settle here since 2018!

    Warley Woods is pretty high up. 230m asl at the highest point. Always a good fall there

    The state wont like that ... people enjoying themselves ... expect tougher lockdown measures

     That is true I suppose however they cannot complain because we are allowed out one hour a day for exercise and sledging in the snow I think is the best form of exercise in my opinion. No stopped here now completely is it going to come back again down our way is what I am interested in. 🥶🥶🥶👍

    Whelp it's definatly traveling westwards now, clouds are moving in that direction.  Got a sugar-sifter/flour dusting going on atm, hopefully the moor's won't eat it all and give us some. 😛

    Most of Bearwood/Quinton/Warley sits in the 180 - 230 m range.  So it always does much better in marginal situations. No marginality problems anywhere today. Fantastic👍🏽

    Woo-hoo, finally, got some decent size flakes falling, getting visibly darker by the second too 😁

    Managed a good 4cm in Telford in the end, with a chance of a second wave later too.

    For those directly South of somewhere like Stafford, you are going to want to the intensity of the band increasing and building as far west as possible, when the natural drift south/se happens that's the only way areas like that see anymore notable snow. 

    Some event this turned out to be, from such a thin band of snow too. Closing in on 9CM here now on the Rugeley side of the Chase, although it has stopped.

    If we can keep some intensity on the western edge, it was naturally drift slowly southwards. 

    Otherwise, let's get it dark and frosty now so we can keep this. 

    7th lying snowfall of the winter, but this is the first 'snow day' - todays accumulation is deeper than all of the previous 6 combined!

    Be interesting to see if we can sneak another midweek too. 

    For all of this talk about SSW hype and failings (mostly disgruntled folk south of the M4) we have seen more falling snow days this winter than we have for many numerous years.
