  1. I’m fairly low elevation at south Croydon but it’s been mostly persistent sleet/rain
  2. Same. Cars driving past with snow on them so it’s clearly settling somewhere locally. Wish it would just pep up.
  3. On off sleet to snow but not sticking at all and never quite heavy enough besides the brief spell earlier. Its all so random.
  4. Mostly rain here with a few flakes. Amazing seeing what other areas to my west have had. Just shows you that you never know what can happen even a few hours out. would obviously love a surprise but it’s so wet here that I just can’t see how if it turns to snow that it would settle. It’s have to be so heavy to stand a chance
  5. Reminds me very much of the 90’s (after 91’s great spell) where there was always so much promise but constantly failed to really deliver in my area. Just having the media and TV forecasts to rely on made it so much more frustrating - I used to sit on teletext waiting for the pixilated weather map to update As others have said, we should probably change our thoughts of March as it has proven that in the right set up, it can deliver decent cold and snow. I also think that at some point the models will flip to our favour and surprise us by showing milder to sudden cold. One day Am I the only one who never looks at the radar during snow? It’s like looking at spoilers, I’m much happier to look out the window and see what turns up than get frustrated seeing heavy snow missing me (rain again here)
  6. Weather apps are showing snow from early afternoon to 1am. Appreciate that it’ll be too warm to settle but didn’t think it was going to snow at all after this morning
  7. South Croydon- looks like it’s raining here. Probably had a couple of cms at 4am but a lot has already melted since then, so it doesn’t even look pretty. Not moaning - snow is snow. I’m sure we will eventually get a snow event that’s more what we are after.
  8. Always good to get any kind of snow but last night didn’t scratch my itch. It was too wet and looked like a thaw This morning it was interesting to see how much difference elevation makes. I live in a relatively low level for my area so I often see cars driving past from up the road with far more snow on them. Last night cars had settled snow on them before it had started to settle outside my house. What was different was my walk to the station. Just a few minutes walk but very slightly downhill - barely noticeable. Even that short distance made a huge difference in the snow. We had about a cm in favoured spots but there was little if anything just 2 mins walk away. On the train, the other side of Croydon there is nothing at all, just a frost on roofs. Lets hope tomorrow gives us a nice surprise and deeper cover than is forecast. 2010 is the last really good snowfall I’ve had
  9. Mostly stopped here in South Croydon. Lower elevation here so only a dusting and that horrid dripping sound. Hopefully Thurs will be better.
  10. As much as we are saying it’s over and some spring warmth would be awesome, it looks like we could get one final bash of this over Easter
  11. Where has our streamer gone?? So cruel. The Thames sucks. Let’s get rid of it
  12. Damn it. It’s stopped here. Oh and Yamkin stop sending your gritters outside my home. It stops the snow settling!!!
