  1. Mammatus clouds overhead but looks like we will miss the main storms. 28.9c at nearly 9pm is bonkers
  2. Drove from Halstead to Knockholt to Westerham Hill and now down to Sevenoaks. Altitude is key. It’s snowing heavily in Sevenoaks but not settling well yet, halfway up Polhill it turns very white and it’s icy slush in the road. Currently 0.0c at Halstead
  3. Down to 0.3c and steady snow again, this is looking more promising than last night
  4. 0.4c and falling quickly, almost no snow melt. could get icy later
  5. Am at Dartford A2/m25 and it is sleet. Heading to Halstead and it’s 1.3c and my neighbour just told me it is snow
  6. Just drove down and up Westerham Hill. At the top, by Shampan, it was coming down heavily, and visibility in full beam headlights was low. About half way down Westerham Hill it became quite sleety, and at the bottom was mostly rain. On the way home, clear at the bottom and all white at the top. Back in Halstead it’s 0.1c, foggy and still snowing lightly. If the skies clear, then it is going to be a mess in the morning, as it is wet out there.
  7. Snowing, and settling on the pavement straight away. Temp 2.2c but that has dropped rapidly in the last 1 hour from 3.9c. Looking good for an hour or two. Need to head out soon down Westerham Hill.
  8. Steve Murr gets a mention here.... https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/uk-weather-latest-snow-hits-southern-england-after-temperatures-plummet-overnight-a3995486.html
  9. 0.7c and snow, but only settling briefly. Kent gritters have tweeted that they will only grit from 4am when precipitation stops washing any salt away, which makes sense. This situation is very marginal, height and temperature wise.
  10. 1.4c and sleet coming down, black dog just went out and came back in with white bits. Scientific.
  11. 1.8c now and definitely sleety. Need more intensity and should be some fun.
  12. Had to clear a bit of slushy snow off the windscreen this morning. Am at work in London but my Netatmo at home is showing 2.4c, and the CCTV is showing sleety bits. I am also looking forward to this evening.
