  1. They usually need surface heating to trigger the storms, this tends to radiate upwards during the evenings/reaches it's peak so that's typically when we see the most storms
  2. Last night was hands down the most incredible storm I've ever witnessed. Constant lightning for about 1-2 hours, less than 1 second gap between the flashes, quite, distant sounding thunder for the most part because of how elevated the storms were but there were 2 deafening booms, so loud they set car alarms off all over the place. The rain, lasted about 10 minutes but it was enough to cause flash flooding at the bottom of the hill, quite incredible really. Sunny all day yesterday, a massive storm and then sunny today followed by potentially more storms later this evening (London North-Westwards towards Wales looks a good bet) Amazing. If this is a precursor to summer, I think we'll all be happy.
  3. Live footage of me looking for the 10-15cm some on here were suggesting.. We've got 2-3cm at most. I'm usually a snow lover but roll on Spring, fed up with the cold now
  4. Personally I'd rather the snow held off until about 11pm or sodded off altogether. As a delivery driver, this evening looks likely to be an absolute nightmare for me
  5. The PPN will develop 100-150 miles out in the estuary. It's not showing on the radars because it hasn't developed yet.
  6. I'm losing the will to live. Once again, for those at the back. The main snow risk isn't until 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. The coldest air isn't over us yet, once it reaches our shores and winds back ENE (from 4pm onwards) then showers/streamers will kick into action. Hope that clears things up a little.
  7. Streamers develop 100-150 miles off of the coast, not out at sea. When the colder air moves over later today and winds turn more ENE then shower/streamer activity will kick in. No point looking for showers yet, we're hours away.
  8. This initial spell of snow tied in with the cold front was never supposed to produce masses of snowfall. It's later this afternoon when we start to see convection from the North Sea that's the interesting part, looking good for a Thames Streamer. Unfortunately, this is only likely to cover a narrow area.
  9. Light-Moderate snow for a couple of hours here now, 1-2cm on the grass etc but absolutely nothing settling on roads/pavements
  10. Streamers are the holy grail if you happen to be in a location where they're favourable, you can have large amounts of snow in a very short period of time. I wonder how much of this is going to settle given temperatures have been in the mid-teens the last few days.
  11. I have to say this cold spell really hasn’t dissapointed. We’ve had snow here every single day since Monday, maximum depth was 32c& I managed to see drifts over 2-3 foot deep which quite frankly was incredible! The thaw is starting now but I think that’s okay, we’ve had a good run!
  12. Just look at the radar. Nobody really knows
  13. Stop. Taking. The. Apps. So. Seriously.
  14. Blimey! http://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/news/villagers-stranded-as-snow-returns-160865/
