My office is just near Bank station in central London and we have some snow falling. Not too heavy, yet. Not sure if it will settle, certainly cold enough though.

Telford, Shropshire.
Good steady snowfall and sticking. About 4 inches in the back garden, so sign of it letting up.

Dont think the car will be going anywhere today!

North east, Sunderland.

Snowed Monday and Tuesday, nothing since.

Looks like we've had a lucky escape, always a first time for everything.

Stafford has about 2-3 inches. Just been informed my little fella is being sent home from primary school as they are closing it at 12:30.

Still snowing quite heavy and sticking very well - temp is 0 deg C

Just laughed immensely at my business partner trying to get his F10 5 series out of the car park on his big 19" wide alloys with barely legal tyres on - to me...to you....to me...to you lol

Nice day up here, cold but sun trying to shine. No serious snow forecast today. A change from the original forecast earlier in the week, when we were forecast to get the worst of it. Good job the wind changed a bit.

Going out to wash the car off in a few minutes, get the last round of salt off.

Sun breaking through as I type.

Nothing mate, just blowing a gale, and very cold, other than that it's business as usual.

Hoping for snow though so we can get sent home.

South Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire is pretty heavy.
Got Hankook icebears on my car and they are amazing in the snow and cold weather.

Well in the last 2 hours it's been hammering down, there's an easy 6 inches now and i'm only about 10/15 miles or so from Gloucester.
Main roads might be ok but side roads are impassable without a 4x4 or winter tyres if there's any kind of slope.

Presume you'd have come up to Swindon and then followed the 417/419 to Gloucester (Air Balloon)? Birdlip hill will almost certainly be closed if it isn't already. You may be able to make it if you go M4/M5 and come off at South Gloucester (junction 12 i think).
