  1. I feel frustration of those of you who have missed out today, at least it's only 24th Jan and still over a month left of some decent potential. After the next few days, the charts could throw anything our way from the weekend - nothing decided. For those of us in SW London today it certainly lifted the current mood. Heavy snowfall during the day and not on a work day. Some many happy faces when we went for a walk earlier.
  2. I'm sorry for those of you who have missed out - must be depressing seeing so many in the west of the region doing well. For me in Sunbury it's our heaviest fall in a number of years and it is still falling now as the back building of the front continues over us. We are normally not in a good place but hit lucky today. Restores my faith that it's still possible - reckon we have a good 5cm (2 inches here)
  3. For me in Sunbury, this has to go down as a remarkable weekend considering the time of year. Yes, admittedly we are not buried in snow but it’s the biggest fall of snow I can remember here for a March day. The snow last night was impressive especially as it ended up coming from the south and not the east. What’s more, I was impressed how it barely melted today. There was then the surprise of a further six hours of snow tonight which has covered everything white again and filled in footprints. The first beast wasn’t terrible by any means but this ones been quite something for 18th a
  4. How funny the weather is, went to bed at 10.30 disappointed to wake up to find whiteout conditions outside and our heaviest snowfall of the year so far
  5. It's great to see some areas get a good snowfall overnight but for the majority of us this is turning into a major disappointment For me I thought they were supposed to be dream synoptics, I just can't see how they were I thought it was supposed to be windy, it certainly isn't here I thought it was supposed to be unusually cold, it isn't I thought there were supposed to be widespread heavy showers merging into bands of snow - there hasn't been So what went wrong or was it just over hyped?
  6. Yes whilst I follow the thread, I never post. The behaviour on there is most odd at times. Glad I’m not a mod
  7. Yes I totally agree, I don’t think people in the West will be disappointed thiugh
  8. There’s lots of people trying to talk themselves out of snow chances before this spell has even started.
  9. I disagree, let’s just be patient. We do well out of this setup usually.
  10. I’d also add, there will be bands of snow that will pop up over the next few days, these are impossible to forecast...
  11. Remember the warning areas are for guidance only, don’t get hung up about whether you are in or out of the Amber area. Things will undoubtedly change...
  12. I think we also need to remember that small features/bands appear at short notice in this type of flow. Can’t wait...
  13. Is anyone else still worried that they will miss the snow? I know the setup leaves us in a perfect position but still...
