    Hi MIA, your dew point seems a little low, I've have it at 0.2C here, I tend to find with light snow it needs to below 0C for the snow to stick and around 0.8C ish with heavier snow

    Yep.... 

    Have you missed out a minus sign on your dew point figures above?

    The dew point needs to be below zero for it to stick. 

    I can now announce its snowing heavily here now and sticking on the grass, so I am pretty certain that it has dropped below zero..

     I think that the heavier stuff is now coming up from the south east..

    I think my dewpoint is a little low. You are probably correct,

    PS My relative Humidity is 82% at the moment.

    But I am certain the DP  is below zero now.

    MIA

    Is it just me or is the PPN pepping up big style, to the South West Midlands? Moving Northwards as well. I would have expected the band to be moving away Southeastwards by now 🤔

    Yes it will be much more intense around 12-1... This is where the evaporating cooling will overcome the ground temps and give accumulations. Will almost look blizzard like in the brisk wind

    Temp now down to 1.8 °C and we have very wet sleety snow. Extremely wet on the ground, so even if it gets less sleety it'll need to keep going for a while before it even begins accumulating, but you never know.

    Wet snow but none settling up at Downs Bank nature reserve, 200m up. Yet a dusting lower down in Lightwood.

    No it has stuck at 0.8C when its heavy but the slushy wet stuff,

    Looking at the radar we may get a covering out of this, Good luck😋🙂

    Agreed, evaporating cooling/wet bulb and don’t forget dew point depression as a lot to answer for regarding snowfall and it settling.

    Anyway nothing wet about my snow here, lovely and fluffy even in the light precipitation.....could be interesting for us in an hour 🤞🙏⚠️

    Been snowing heavily here for the past half hour or longer. It's sticking to cars, grass, roofs, but not the road.

    Still heavy snow grass and cars all white but pavements and roads are just to warm to settle on.
