nothing much, just saying the window is small to say the least, as it become cold enough so the PPN starts to die.....

Just been looking from the garden over the hills but no snow to be seen.

There was a slushy covering at Whitfield and Dover Castle area for an hour between 2-3pm.  I've got a couple of photos.  Best case scenario is from 7-midnight.  There is potential for hills to the N and E of Dover to attain as much (lol but beggars cant be choosers) as 2cms as the wind veers E of N from around 7pm and the uppers fall from their current -5 to as low as -8 but after midnight chances diminish as the coldest air is also the driest!  So as I say eastern most Kent, with altitude, from 7pm.  And a bit of luck.

Wishful thinking but -8 850s over warm waters the gradient may cause decent convection, especially if a trough is about?

We have already had snow with -4 uppers earlier this afternoon, so with -7 the chances are higher, so I'm not thinking wishfully, just logically.

The main issue is whether any showers will actually make landfall!

It probably is wishful thinking for today, but it was very cold uppers over a warm North sea that helped cause the great snow event of 1991.

So a warm N sea at this time of year is never a disadvantage as far as I am concerned!

Was at Crowborough about an hour ago and had some very light "wintery mix"

The problem is more with the wind, through this evening the wind drops away and becomes more Easterly than the North-Easterly we've had today, that and the increasing pressure is going to kill off any shower activity we've seen.
