  1. Been light snow all morning here and still coming down. Met Office showing heavier snow later from about 5pm - 11pm. @kold weather I must be in a good area for later I'm guessing - not a million miles away from your old stomping ground!
  2. What dew point / temp does it need to be to settle on wet roads, patios etc?
  3. Have to say, the Met Office app has been accurate for my location so far. Showed no snow until about this time when I checked around midnight and was correct.
  4. When I just asked her if it'd snow tomorrow, My Alexa just said to me "look, stop asking me the same question, I've told you yes, idiot". In all seriousness, while I love all this technology at our fingertips, being able to see the model runs and interacting with other snow lovers on this forum, there is a part of me that misses the innocence of the 80s. I remember January '87 well. I was a 13 year old and the first I knew it was going to snow was when I looked out the window at the lamppost. I sat there for ages just watching it! Always seemed to start snowing early evening back then fr
  5. I know people say apps are useless in this situation but the Met Office one is showing less snow tomorrow here as time goes on with each update. Will it get this far inland?
  6. Apologies if this has been shared before, but it is crazy to think that this is almost to the hour exactly 30 years ago regarding the 1991 monster easterly. I remember it well. Blizzard conditions for hours on end and bitterly cold. Me and some friends were on our way to South Weald to go sledging and we helped clear the A12 slip road to the M25 as cars couldn't get up it. Hoping for a repeat over the next few days. Enjoy this forecast if you haven't seen it...
  7. To be honest, I'd love just a few days of lying snow and the chance to hopefully get the kids out on the sledge this Sunday (while it's still snowing!). That would be perfect. If there's nothing else after that then so be it - I'd rather people were able to get out and get this vaccine than be unable to get anywhere because of the weather for days on end.
  8. I just long to see another easterly like February 1991 and for the Met to release this type of weather forecast. Everything crossed for the next few weeks...
  9. Which model's rainfall maps do people find the most reliable within the 48 hour range? Arpege? GFS? ICON?
  10. I've been following the low for next week with interest for a few days now as I'd ideally like a more or less dry day next Thursday (North London). What's the chances it is weak enough to not cause too many problems? Perhaps the azores high may nudge in? Temps look reasonable at least but a dry day would be the icing on the cake!
