    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

    Just drove from Larkfield back to Gillingham.

    Started at 6 degrees with wet snow as I left, and drove through - sleet, rain, wet snow, heavy snow, nothing and ended with very light rain at 2 degrees in Gillingham.

    Transient doesn't even sum that up!

    I reckon London could *potentially* get something disruptive, esp suburbs.

    CAPE is fuelling very heavy precip - purples!

    anyone else seeing some brilliant mammatus cloud after the thundersnow hail event. Looks terrific 

    Yes I did, over Chafford Hundred as I left Lakeside shopping centre, and after a heavy, splodgy sleet shower. I was hoping someone else would have seen them!

    Just had an hour or so of, sometimes heavy, snow.  Cars and grass have a dusting, but it's not stuck on the pavement or roads

    No, we had a crack of thunder and then heavy hail that turned to snow!

    The MetO warning map sums this whole event up! It's a complete mess. 

     

    The forecasters don't really have a clue what's happening locally. The current MetO for the next few days has our area showing light snow, sleet, heavy snow, rain, sun, cloud and hail!

     

    It's almost like they just shook up a bag of symbols and put them down at random!

     

    Still think tonight we could get something.

    Don't forget the thunder and lightning!

     

    Just goes to show how much unstable air masses in a westerly breeze can offer.
