    Hi Blizz, my niece is driving up to Birmingham tomorrow, as far as I can see it looks dry, hoping you can firm this up,

    cheers

    dallas :doh:

    Hi, it should be dry except a risk of a few scattered Snow showers though this is more likely in the West and South West of Birmingham such as Dudley, Bromsgrove, Wolverhampton etc...

    Some showers pulling in from north wales, could reach western/northern ares of midlands later on?

    Could well do, hopefully the cheshire gap effect kicks in later on.

    Those showers have currently dumped 1-2cms of snow on top of the previous covering we had from Wednesday and Thursday.

    nick, yeah most in the southwest, but i did get 2 good snowy spells (similar to feb 8th and 9th 2007), on monday 2nd and thursday 5th and also decentish snow on sunday 1st, some of snow now gone, im not too confident about sunday, never seem to do well with snow from the west

    ive been happy with this cold spell one of my best probably the best since 2000, but disappointment about no cheshire gap snow tonight/tomorrow night

    If you haven't read my post in the main cold thread then it wasn't all fun and games! We had no power, no heating, no hot water and the roads were blocked by fallen trees - which had felled due to the sheer weight of the snow that fell. This has to be the best cold spell in my lifetime (not hard really), and if this is a modern winter then more modern winters please!

    i hope we get snow on sunday B) maybe tuesday what are peoples views on this ? also what are people views on a cold endto feb?

    im feeling pessimistic, i think we have bore the brunt of the snow. sundays band looks very weak, so some light snow is the only possibility imo. tuesday has very low confidence, and looks too marginal.

    Forecasters got it horribly wrong for here and its always elsewhere that sees the best, never here.

    Sunday may see something but i bet by tomorrow it will be forecast as rain. Utter disgrace.

    wouldnt go far as that mate although time is running out. ecm looks good in its latter stages, the classic low over western europe playing against northerly blocking, bringing some decent snowfall i would imagine. at the moment it is still all to play for. sunday looks very light, with only a little precipitation, which seems to get heavier as it moves northwards across scotland. tuesday is very marginal, but looks to deliver some worthwhile precipitation. blizzard, but imho its never worth really getting your hopes up. you are an optimistic person, but its never worth getting excited as things can change very quickly in this country as many know(last night)
