Stop moaning snow freek. At least you have seen snow falling unlike some of us who may not see anything at all from this low. And winter has only just started so how can you comment on only having a

There is a line of snow stretching from the North Sea down to west London, hope we get in on the action there as looks like it will snow all day

Too warm for snow and it is just a line of showers. You have more chance of meeting the real Santa than seeing snow all day.

Let's hope for snow in January or feb

Doesn't seem that much of a cold spell to me, 4oc 5oc in the day is nothing compared to a few years ago when temps struggled to get above 0 oc in the day! If we are to get snow and proper cold in our region we need a proper easterly or North easterly blast!

Not seen any flakes here, just rain and drizzle, very windy. All too marginal I guess.

 

I find it very strange that it has snowed in mid April, late November and even late October on similar set ups and uppers no higher that -5c in recent years, and yet no white stuff on 27th December.

Just a glance at Todays charts would make me think SNOW for many in the South East...And yet its raining again now outside.

Later in the day chances improve.  Met O forecasting wintry showers.  Uppers fall to -7 in east Kent so snow likely between 5pm and 10pm or whenever the showers die.

If anyone doubts METO working 24 hours a day. I notice the wind yellow be aware notification was timed at about 4am.

That said surprised this wasn't issued earlier. Perhaps the risk become more apparent after data run after midnight.

I got notification from Met that it came out at 00.40, maybe they updated it at 4am

Hi Jules that could be right, I can see a notification at 00:49 on my phone but can't tell if it was for the wind now, will assume it was then.

Still quite late notice, assume the wind strength did mean the low deepened a little more than first thought. It certainly got gusty.

Not a dig at METO, it's good to see 24x7 coverage.

Looking back at the radar quite a few of you got some light snow, I had snow throughout from about midnight till 7 albeit light, if it snows here it can pretty much snow anywhere bar the S coast - but not in a million years it was going to settle with the ground sodden. :rofl:
