  1. Early end to our winter this time around! This time last year!
  2. And, that will feel really pleasant. So much better than that horrible cold uncomfortable weather!
  3. Please transport me into a nice warm Spring! I'm done with this frustrating season that has the temerity to call it's self Winter!
  4. Cold rain, sleet & snow mix It's got to be the worst possible type of weather!
  5. Having said that, I remember several really good snow events from SW during 1980's Channel lows running East, blizzards depositing massive amounts of snow before diving off SE into Europe which re-opened the door to freezing cold Easterlies! Those were the days
  6. Preferably from the frigid East! These attacks from the SW, weather fronts pushing into cold air are so precarious and marginal for many. The air just hasn't been cold enough!
  7. Another disappointment in the Tonbridge area. But, we were really lucky last year during the Beast from the East being in the line of numerous heavy frequent snow showers and ended up with about 6 inches of beautiful powder snow. Glad to see some area's got a good covering.
  8. Nothing much else likely! In fairness, the forecast was 1cm - 7cm but also some area's would see nothing at all. It was always expected to fragment and fizzle out. Pretty accurate really but another disappointing outcome for most in this frustrating winter. 👎
  9. It seems to have turned more sleety here in Tonbridge!
  10. It looks like Chris Fawkes is going to be right!! Most in Kent will see no heavy snow! 😭
  11. Will it be one of those occasions where heavier precipitation showing on the radar never actually reaches us? Stall or fizzle!
  12. Chris Fawkes BBC - front fizzling out as it reaches SE! Some area's seeing no snow! 😭
  13. This is becoming really tedious! Chasing, chasing, chasing situations that seem less and less likely to verify. Brutal cold over USA & Canada will probably scupper our chances for at least the next 2 weeks. But, there's still time and we could see a significant change mid-February, lets hope. I think most cold lovers on here would definitely settle for just one decent spell of severe cold and a covering of snow for 4-5 days? Unlikely that we'll see a 'Beast from the East' this time, but don't give-up on Winter just yet people.
  14. Lack of input from GP lately is rather worrying!
  15. Although I remain optimistic for February, I'm beginning to get the feeling that, despite predictions, forces will continue to work against us this season! It's either the dreaded Azores High or events over USA (winter storms that usually result in them being plunged into the deep freeze) that scupper our chances of deep cold & snow into UK! We now will probably have to wait at least another 10 days before we get our next chance of proper cold.
