  1. evening all, Interesting drive from Southend to London this afternoon, I had almost everything, sun, rain, hail, sleet, even a few snow flakes, could have sworn I saw a flash of lightning, but can't be sure on that. Then on the way back this evening I saw the gritters were out on the A127. Highest temp today was 10 degrees, and the lowest (so far) was 2 degrees, according to my car. Interesting weather Cheers FC
  2. must get back to work and stop staring out of the window, looks like it has turned back to rain here in Blackfriars.. FC
  3. Not the best pic in the world, but does show the snow attempting to settle on the grass
  4. holy smoke, we have a bit of thunder snow here in Central London, and it is turning white..... Edit... Well I am not sure if you can call 1 flash of lightning and 1 very loud clap of thunder a thunderstorm, but it is still snowing (very wet snow) quite impressed as this was not forecast, the ground is too warm for too much to settle but it is having a go on the grassy areas. FC
  5. Morning all, No scrapping the ice on the windscreen this morning, in fact the car was showing a balmy 6 degrees at 5.30. I saw quite a lot of low cloud and mist around as I caught the train up to the big smoke this morning. Have a good day one and all... Cheers FC
  6. Morning all, I stupidly did not check in here last night (I know very remiss), so I left home in Westcliff this morning in the dry and with no coat, by the time I got to Leigh Station it was pouring down so now I am sporting the bedraggled drowned rat look for the rest of the day, lesson learned. Hopefully I will not catch any chills or colds as a result of my silliness, but I really do not like wearing coats.. Cheers FC
  7. Hi all, I have just driven from Southend to Gatwick and the most snow I saw was some slush in the car park at Gatwick airport, now in central London and crazily enough there is a wintery mix of rain sleet and wet snow falling. Cheers FC
  8. morning all, It is raining here in Southend so no snow day for me, off to Gatwick now, well done to those that have the white stuff Cheers FC
  9. Evening all, Although being a complete snow lover, I was hoping for a bit of a non event from a purely personal point of view as I have to get up at 5am to drive to Gatwick from Southend. So if my travel is to be disrupted, it better disrupt big time to make it worth me not making back home this weekend... So errr.... bring on the snow Cheers FC
  10. Hi All, Just seen a gritter go past my office at Blackfriars bridge here in London Cheers FC
  11. Hi all, Just been outside here in Blackfriars and it is trying to rain already, I did not think anything was coming through until after dark Cheers FC
  12. morning all, Surprised to see -5 (-4.8 actually) in Westcliff this morning, the car was claiming -6, there was also a widespread frost in Central London when I got here at 7am, but the sun salt and building warmth are already getting to work dispersing it. Fingers crossed for later (if you like snow), I am a bit torn as I have to get to, and then fly from, Gatwick tomorrow evening, it could be an interesting couple of days, or not....... the joys of the British weather Cheers FC
  13. still have the pitter patter of rain here Westcliff, but the temp is now down to 2.0 degrees... FC
  14. wow, just watching the outside temp in Westcliff falling away, down to 2.7 now.... still raining though FC
  15. still raining in Westcliff with the temp still holding at 3.0 degrees FC
