  1. Thanks for that. Now you mention it, that's what I'd heard too. Seems to be settling quickly everywhere this time, including on pavements and patios, which yesterday's dump did not succeed in doing.
  2. Snowing steadily in St Albans now and the MO radar suggests we could be in for an hour or so at the equivalalent rate of around 1mm/hour Now I remember when I was a kid being told that an inch of snow is the equivalent (roughly) of a tenth of an inch of rain. Don't know how reliable that is but it begs a question. So, need your help please guys! Does anyone know what 1mm rain per hour would translate into in terms of snow mms?
  3. Not a single flake all day yesterday but woke up to light dusting this morning.
  4. Nothing so far in St Albans but radar showing light ppn about 5 miles to the east and creeping very slowly ever closer.
  5. Not looking at the apps, only MO updates. It's kind of compulsive once you know tsnow is on the horizon.
  6. This is getting beyond a joke. It's just gone even further back to 6pm Sunday evening. At this rate we'll not see a single flake all week.
  7. Same here. Snow was originally forecast to start in St albans at midnight and last all night and most of the follwing day. Now it's changed to rain at midnight, then dry from 1am. The snow is now expected to arrive at 8am. So no doubt it'll get pushed back again as that time approaches and maybe we'll be lucky to see a couple of flakes floating around at 4pm!
  8. Not in St Albans it wasn't. Snow was predicted earlier in the week to start at midnight, by yesterday evening it had been brought forward to 10pm, now it's been shoved right back to 3am. At this rate I'll be waking up to a starly snowless rainsoaked scene.
  9. Sorry to rain on everyone's parade but, much as I really love to see the snow, I cannot say I'm looking forward to this coming event. Why? Because of the extremely harsh north easterlies that are expected to accompany the snow from the off on midnight Sunday and through most of Monday. Winds are forecast to gust at up to 40mph inland and over 50mph near coasts. That alone will take a lot of of the fun out of it for me. It's going to be brass monkeys with bells and whistles all the way through. Fine if that doesn't bother you but it's not really my cup of tea.
  10. Such was my excitement at the time I remember it all quite vividly to this day. I was living in a flat in Hornsey North London at the time and stared outside watching it fall all day Boxing Day without let-up. It must also have continued most of the night because next morning It was 14" deep. Going downstairs I was aghast to discover thick snow lying inside the front door! It had penetrated about a foot inside. We had no central heating and the fierce winds had blown the snow through the cracks. It was that cold indoors the snow hadn't even started to thaw inside. But even more of a shoc
  11. Still rain in St Albans - just 15 miles south. And the Met Office have now caught up and change their forecast from heavy snow to rain. Must have looked out the window! 😆
  12. Met Office forecast for St Albans is heavy snow between 5pm-6pm then turning to sleet. So far not a flake in sight, only plain, unadulterated rain.
  13. ince rain turned to light snow at 9.25am in St Albans it's mostly been white rain (aka sleet 😄).
  14. After hours of heavy rain a sudden flurry of sleet in St Albans just now.
