I'm delighted for you :D precip has cleared here, Essex has done rather good for snow eh?

 

Hmm, i'm not sure i would say Essex has done 'too' well so far with regards to snow, but can't really complain as 'usually' NW'ly/N'ly winds don't bring much snow to these parts, so today has been a pleasant surprise. Looking forwards to if / when the winds turn more NE'ly on Tuesday/Wednesday as the fun and games 'could' really begin then.

 

And by the way, how many Daniels are there on this thread? Seems there is quite a few. My name is Daniel too  :D

I think those going round in circles dissecting forecasts from different forecasters (or the same ones at different times) are just going to tie themselves in knots here. You're in the SE of England,

yeah she just text me the same-

Just had a peak at the 18z UKMO (meso) and it shows the centre of the small low moving SE across the Midlands around 3am then across SE England around 6am, sleet/snow showers swirling around this low

This is directed/aimed for those Essex folks:There is currently ONE WEATHER WARNING issued for Essex by the Met Office

Yellow Warning of Snow and Ice - Valid 13Z on Sat 31 Jan to 12Z on Sun 1 Feb

Eastern areas will see occasional snow showers on Saturday before more persistent rain, sleet and snow spreads southwards overnight, with potential for 2-3 cm of snow at low levels, and 5-10 cm over northern hills where again blizzard conditions are possible.

The public should be aware of the risk of disruption due to snow and ice.

Local authorities affected: Essex, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrockhttps://www.essexweather.com/warnings.html

We will see. It will have to go some to settle. The ground is now sopping from the snow/rain mix we have had for the last hour or so.

I might need to cull some :p

Generally I think Essex has fared the best compared to other counties, with PPN sticking about to my E, if it has been bust for you in the past few days, tonight is looking captivating - for something more substantial. :D

Wooooow, a whole ten minutes of wet snow that didn't settle, now nothing. Those of you hoping for snow from some sort of easterly, don't kid youselfs or listen to the massive hype in the mod. There maybe a fleeting easterly as the low pulls away, but by that time pressure will be too high for any ppn. Same story as every year.

 

You sound a tad Pessimistic

Colder DPs sweeping eastwards, temp 4C it would be nice if we had some clear skies for the temp to start falling, and sodden ground to dry up a little. Quite gusty this aids evaporation.

Unbelievable! I'll have to get back on the A414, M11, A11 (Nice little chef there), A45, A11 (again), A1065 to finally see some real snow this winter! - it'll be melted by the time I get there, no doubt.

 

Back to rain/sleet here again. :)

Sod's law isn't it? It hammered down for a while. Still lying now at last :)

The brutal cold snap continues in basildon. It's raining! to be fair, some snow has been mixed in at times.

yes it was actually snowing quite a bit as I drove back to Ockendon from Bas at  about 2pm. it was rain, sleet, snow, then by the time I got home plain old cold rain again!

Not all of Essex - Thurrock for example.... barely a flake, although yesterday morning on the way to work there were cars streaming off the A127 covered in snow.

Warm sectors over us associated with the Occluded front now so any settling will be incredibly limited - Colder air returns after dark so we should see any showers becoming more snow rather than this rain, sleet snow mess we've had so far today
