  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 and 19th March.

    Well done winter 2018 and thanks to everyone in here for their informative posts, great forum!

  4. 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?

  5. Just now, Big Snow said:

    Tell you what though, the MOD thread is crazy. I had assumed that after two weeks chasing a cold spell they would have been thrilled with what is to come (regardless of snow distribution it is going to be a fascinating week), yet already the focus is on the breakdown and it's like the next four days aren't happening. It's almost like for some of them it's the thrill of the chase, like a gambler looking for the next big win. All very peculiar.

    Yes whilst I follow the thread, I never post. The behaviour on there is most odd at times. Glad I’m not a mod
