So,...

This low / streamer.

Is it going to be south of glos?

I have a feeling we are just a tad too north to see much else.

While im optimistic ( may not seem it ) lol

I would like to know how this will play out for glos.

The charts are all over the shop at the mo. so i suppose im just clutching at straws

Snow now stopped.

Practically all melted, very disppointing.

If i had just got out of bed now i would say it had been raining.

I know its the warmest part of the day but it just shows its not cold enough. Anyway IMBY.

Dogs, is the heavy stuff going to hit BTL. By the way doesn't Ian normally give us an update about now, after his morning stint at the Beeb?

This situ is changing all the time - some thoughts that it may be stalling further north and into Lincs - or will that little LP system develop near us as predicted?

Don't forget these are all just early showers before any predicted heavier snowfall. Still -1.1 in Tetbury and been snowing for 30mins now

And still hammering it down in Quedgeley, Gloucester. But.. will we get sideswiped by this wrap around low ? The bullseye towards Wiltshire ... 1 1/2 foot of snow ? Possible as it could really stick around for a day or more !

Good luck to those still waiting !!!

God.. I'm so happy !! :(

Yes we've had to shut the school and send everyone home. Fantastic heavy snowfall - beautiful: everything just a blanket of white. I'm running home through the snow shortly which should be interesting. Wouldn't want to drive in this.

Once again north Devon scores!

Heavy snow just started here in south Devon, apparently worse in north of the country. We have been having flurrys for an hour until the heavier stuff arrived.

LOL , I just cant handle the uncertainty .

It looks like its gonna stop and that will be it.

Its been snowing on and off for an hour now.

A little covering, but its melting.

I see it as stopping soon and the low will put snow south and east of us.

Thats how i see it, and would love to be proven completely wrong.

From what i can see on the sat images, the low is forming ( or something is forming ) in the NW of wales.
