    Clearly still up for grabs and will be a case of window watching but personally have low expectation levels for areas  West and probably also South of Brum. 😪

    Temperatures now going beyond what was predicted today. Many places into double digits, and with dew points doing the same, it's a right mild miserable soup out there.

    What is amazing is the temperature difference across short distances. I could drive for only an hour and go from 10C to 3C.

    Going to be interesting to watch how this all meanders around for the next couple of days.

    needs a heck of a drop, felt mild out there today, full agreement of front stalling over Midlands, but depends how much temps can drop from dizzy heights of now

    12z GFS Shows an upgrade for tomorrow evening , Snow risk is increasing for the midlands per each run. However I'm not expecting much to settle, especially if it's Wet Snow with marginal dew-points.

    If we can get a couple of hours of the Heavy Stuff then things could take a turn, only issue is with Dew points not looking favorable at the moment. 😐  Evaporative cooling post 3pm tomorrow maybe?

    Met Office probably will issue warnings regardless, just to be on the safe side.

    Complete opposite here with it feeling chilly all day under a constant stream of drizzle. According to BBC weather the West Midlands are still a good 4-5 degrees higher than the East Midlands currently.

    There will be variations on each run, which makes it more exciting.

    From my experience, the best snowfalls come from marginal events. Not sure whether this is the one. My eyes are on the coming weeks 🙂
