London & South East Regional Discussion

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the new thread everyone:

The forum is extremely busy at the moment so in the interests of keeping the regional threads running smoothly please before you post just think about whether you'd be interested in what you're saying were someone else to post it. Pointless one liners and posts may well be deleted to ensure ease of use to all members during this period.

Whilst it's difficult to take the emotion and expectancy out of any likely upcoming event, everyone would really do themselves (and others) a favour by easing off with the disappointment and negativity.

I suspect most of us will be every happy with the next week (but I’m starting to think some people wouldn’t be happy if they got 2 foot of snow) but what ever happens we all enjoy weather so can we please talk about what may or may not be about to happen without winding up our fellow members.

Good luck everyone, enjoy your snow when you get it angel.gif

Nice pink blob over my house on the radar, nothing coming out the sky though.

Sky isn't looking too promising atm - white but not looking full of the white stuff! (yet)

I'm really confused, I can see that tomorrow afternoon/ evening is dodgy but there is still tues, wed and thurs at least for snow in kent isn't there? Why is there so much 'winter is over' mentality. Everything I have seen looked good for it on those days, or has it all changed again?

Latest Met text update not good:

Headline:

Tonight, very cold, icy. Some snow by morning.

This Evening and Tonight:

Snow showers across parts of Kent, perhaps giving local falls. Otherwise, a dry, frosty evening but clouding over with outbreaks of snow moving in towards morning. Snow fall will be mostly slight but icy conditions will become quite widespread. Minimum Temperature -3 °C.

Monday:

Icy with a slight snow cover early on, some light snow for a time then turning less cold with rain and sleet, perhaps heavy for a time, thawing lying snow. Maximum Temperature 5 °C.

Wow, jubilation in the mod thread. Apparently in five days we have some dark blue blob over us with a deep purple blob to the left, this I believe, in my most expert opinion is very good news. So we can all look forward to 48 foot of snow in a few days after all.

Probably because 90% of snow events turn to rain or fade away near the time and then we hear 'but wait until the next day/week/event it's looking much better' before getting close again and a downgrade. A groundhog day mindset can set in.

It's impossible to predict until a few hours before anyway.

I do love your optimism Alan, snow was bang on for Saturday (no show), then Sunday night, then Monday and now for the rest of the week!

Just saw the BBC predictions, the big band of snow that was supposed to pitch up overnight now fizzles big time before ven getting to the Midlands and Monday looks wet :-O

Who knows what is going to happen but I am not going to hold my breath :-(

I'm usually the eternal optimist but I've a horrible feeling I'll get very little or no snow at all for my location. Latest NAE charts tend to back this up. I'll have a very upset little boy if this is the case as he's already got the carrot out to make the snowmans nose!

Or several feet of rain when a warm sector appears out of nowhere and positions itself over us just as the precipitation arrives good.gif

I personally think the MET/BBC could have egg on their face tomorrow. They didn't predict the 3cm of snow we got early Dec. marginal events can tend to be the best ones!

Fingers crossed.

Anyway if we fail tomorrow. The rest of the week will deliver ample opportunity for the white stuff. With no marginality involved!!

      During the 28th the weather was rather humid, but there were no signs in our part of the approaching chaos that was to hit the hythe/kent area that night, even though the forecasts warned of possible storms. By late evening about 10pm, I could hear rumbles and decided to look outside to see if it was a Thunderstorm or just some old person putting the bin out. Sure enough from then on, it turned from the odd flash, to strikes and flashes every few mins. One of the most amazing storms I have ever seen in my life. What was really gutting though, was I didn't have a fully charged camera and missed out on many strikes that not only knocked our power out, but set car alarms off!
