Many of us were hoping for snow...we were told we would get six inches. Some parts of Birmingham barely got a snow flake.
The Met Office issued a yellow warning for the West Midlands, an indication of possible severe weather, for snow and ice between 4pm yesterday and noon today.
Some of us saw a few flakes as we headed home in the evening rush hour.
Sadie Armstrong "B29.snowed in!!"
But it didn't last long..
The forecasters also warned of possible transport disruption.
This is what The Met Office said:
"Accumulations of three to eight centimetres are likely in places, perhaps ten to 15cm very locally on high ground.
"The public should be aware of the risk of disruption to transport."
This is what actually happened:
The snow in Birmingham on Jan 20
This is what you said...
Simon Wade: "B20 tonnes of it."
Snow in B20
Matthew J Danks: " When you said six inches you meant if you added up ALL of the snow right across Birmingham right?"
Ian Sanderson: "Been predicting snow every day since October lol, start predicting a heatwave everyday from now and maybe one day in July you can brag you got it right twice in one year lol."
Jonathan FP: "Foster Help we can't open the front door cos of all the.. oh ang on wait. Now it was just media hype. Carry on."
Susan Ann: "I wonder if those Met Office forecasters receive a bonus as a reward for doing a good job? Well I think they should be made to give it back. Where is the snow they were so confidently predicting all day yesterday? Everyone prepared for it. Even an hour before it was due to arrive they were still predicting it!"
Jason Kelly: "A little bit of snow and the whole city goes into panic mode."
As our dreams of a snow day fade out into the distance we will leave you with these lovely weather pics from back in 1963 when the snow really did come down.
