Am I right in thinking the winds have veered more Easterly towards something like ENE rather than NEish. Certainly seems like the band is beginning to push further westwards, better news for us West Kenters and those on London + Surrey.

Hows the intensity like in these showers? Is it keeping it together or weakening slightly? :good:

Absolute whiteout here!!! Huge flakes too blowing in huge clouds.

Neil,

The main band and what we have now will probably not really be distinguishable. Here it has been snowing heavily constantly for around 2 hours now and I cant really see how it can get a lot heavier.

Biting wind here in Dover, especially up towards Whitfield... lots of people sledding but brief gusts of wind were whipping up the snow and making it hard to see.

Judging by the radar it looks as though more of an easterly wind component is kicking in. The showers are really stating to build over the sea and the latest radar shots resemble those from the States when lake effect snow develops. The only difference is that the showers do not appear to be very heavy yet. It looks squally and not very productive for building snow cover. Drifting and blowing snow must be making it quite hazardous in areas. It must be excellent fun watching these showers come and go.

What size snow drifts can people report at the moment?
