Met Office  forecast for Hereford  this morning,  overcast, 10% of precipitation. Reality.... VID_624930823_123751_206.mp4

It’s pretty bad here tbh, the pics are from my bedroom window lol

Been out for a walk needed to  sit down

Wow. Not been on here for a while but really heavy snow here in Lower Penn, just outside of Wolverhampton and winter wonderland outside. 

What has shocked me is the intensity of the snow and how quickly it has settled on all surfaces. Pretty amazing after how mild it was earlier and how wet it was.

    Just taken a peep   winter wonderland outside    i know some have been nashingteeth on the MOD thread   but we have had worse winters   regarding snowfall

    Oh it’s been a good winter here but I think its been another very poor one for most low lying areas of the country.

    Snow here now also, very rapid changeover & temp drop. Not sure we’ll get much more than a bit of a covering at best though as heaviest stuff looks to be moving away east now. Lighter stuff to come.

    I think the Gods are toying with us. Playing us East Midlanders as fools. It's all some kind of big weather conspiracy

    Seeing some flakes now but what's the point, the band will have gone past in 10 minutes, 10 miles too far east for the 5th time this winter.

    Squall passed through a good 30 minutes ago. Why isn't the cold undercutting as quick as it apparently did in the west?

    This winter has been very frustrating around here. Rain, rain and more rain. No decent snowfalls so far this winter. Hopefully we can get some of it tonight.

    Radar looks insane for the West mids. Some heavy stuff incoming. We are in the moderate stuff at present heavy incoming. Some of us in the West mids have been lucky in a rubbish Winter generally so far.

    Rain again in Hinckley, when it's snowing in many places in the Midlands! Some people around Stoke seem to get it all the time. Might move there! Lol

    Every model actually has several cm of snow for the North West Midlands late tonight. Given how warm the ground will be, I think it’s unlikely. One to watch though.

    Some models bring through at least one feature across the Midlands during the weekend. Another one to watch.

    The continual risk of wintry showers in between.

    Oops.
