Sounds like a 50/50 chance,right up to 0 hours,no one seems to know what will come out the sky.

Living on Epsom downs i guess i have a bit better chance than most but a one night event a non event.

The clouds are telling me I have a front on it's way. I'm no good with names, but I go by the whispy cloud then the bank of 'watery sun' clouds behind. So i think i may get something.

I love the colour of the clouds as a snowy front approaches.

Has a distinctive colour unlike the drab rain clouds we are all so used to.

I really hope that low becomes a cut off low so that we will draw in some colder air from the east!!

Over the course of the day, I have seen the Met Office hour-by-hour forecast for my location go from various periods of light snow over the next 36 hours, to less snow (but still snow) then snow with a bit of sleet, then mostly sleet and a smidge of snow, then mostly sleet interspersed with rain, mostly rain with a hint of sleet and now just rain all the way.

 

Never expected much from this but intensely irritating - will it go the other way? So rarely does....

This is one of the worst cold spell and will soon be forgotten.

This time last week,Snow Sunday,then Snow Tuesday/Wednesday with 12" drifts forecast.

Now look what it has turned out to be a 50/50 chance of snow as we all know it will be rain only.

What a let down this has been.

Never take any output as gospel until T6! Especially when it comes to snow forecasts, it's the hardest thing to predict in our neck of the woods!

 

Just to see some snow falling would make my winter, as that would mean it's a 100% better than last year!

The weather on Met0 for wednesday keeps on changing, i've got light snow, i've just got rain i've just got cloud, then today back to light snow and then it's back to cloud.

I really think it's a case of seeing what we wake up too tomorrow.

Considering some of the surprises across the Region this morning I'm surprised the meto are bullish about nothing really settling in the SE especially those with heights on there side.

Only takes small adjustments !!

Completely agree I wasn't expecting anything today and have been surprised with two (all be it brief) snow showers

It's because the ppn which ran into the south-east wasn't connected to the advancing warm front from the Atlantic. As temperatures continue to rise and cloud cover remains, with rising upper air temps, any front edge leading snow is likely to be short lived I fear. I hope I'm wrong but I stick to my thoughts earlier in the week that the original Met Office forecast was right: snow confined largely to the hills of the north. Any snow south of that is likely to be transient and washed away. The frontal attack line is oriented wrong and this is not helped by the extremely slow progress: there is very little undercut taking place so that ppn that even starts out as snow soon turns sleety and then to rain as 850hPa temps rise, lifting both air temps and dew temps. It's all just the wrong side of marginal.

 

We look to the next cold incursion.

Met Office don't think the snow will reach / affect E.Anglia. All warnings stop as far as E Midlands, but do include Peterborough.

I'm in St Neots, about 25 miles south of Petereborough, so may see a flake or two, but if I was a betting man I would have to say sleet at best if anything fell around here.

It stayed well below freezing here in Milton Keynes all morning, we had a heavy frost but no snow....on the plus side the local high school hasn't closed due to heavy snow which was predicted by the local radio station last week so Master D's education hasn't suffered at all ........
