Snow overnight in Cambridge. Mostly melted in the middle of town, but the residential roads are lethal on a bike! It needs to go away, I want to go pick up my new car at the weekend!

Forecasts for just a few hours ahead are changed regularly so good luck forecasting up to Friday, but if that happens it should be good

Neither Met Office or BBC are showing anything.

* I'm well aware they both use the same data but they do regularly have different forecasts.

I am not very happy.

We had the flakes start landing on Kings Hill, for around 25 minutes, then it stopped.

We did not get the 5cm as promised.

I am very disappointed.

I will send a strongly written letter to the meteorology department.

Friday is supposed to bring snow again across the entire UK almost according the 'Never wrong' Met Office

Weather isn't an exact science, it's just best prediction. :p

What is this snow you speak of? I remember we have a local legend that we had this mythical stuff fall once, many centuries ago.
