This app searches Twitter for real-time snow reports and displays them on the map.
Tweet the hashtag #uksnow, the first half of your postcode, and rate the snow that is falling out of ten (0/10 for nothing, 5/10 for steady snow and 10/10 for arctic blizzard conditions).
Optionally, you can include the depth of snow (cm or inches), attach a photo and add a description to your tweet.A_Twitter_User#uksnow NG8 3/10 1cm - Just starting to snow3 minutes ago via Twitter

The map automatically updates every minute
