If this had been the 70s or 80s wouldn't have batted any eyelid at a bit of graupel/sleet. Just shows how snow starved we are these days. In the 80s, I remember us having a proper snow "event" at least once every year without fail.But then again Easterlies were the norm then. Rare as hen's teeth these days

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

First white path for over 2 years!

 

CELEBRATION

What a difference a couple of miles make! Didn't settle here at all, came down 4/10 on the Murr scale for 5 minutes or so then stopped, despite having greens over me on the radar, very strange

My friend who lives at most 10 roads down from me in Gillingham just rang to say there wasn't a flake there.

 

I'm bouncing round like a mad thing.

 

Nearly all melted already but that's made me smile! I just want a couple of inches so my little girl can make her first snow man now but she went nuts when it started falling, she has never seen it before!

Indeed, had some heavy graupel for a couple of minutes and that was it.

Tis very Interesting that areas that are along the Estuary have not really had anything due to marginality issues, North Kent, South Essex etc etc whereas head a bit further North or South and Snow seems to have stuck quite readily, these things always interest me much like the 2009 Polystyrene Ball Snow Incident on the 2nd February when Surrey got foot of snow and other areas never even had anything settle!

I get the impression (and don't get me wrong I am not a MetO hater as they do a sterling job) that the MetO really didn't expect the cold to move in so fast and certainly wouldn't be looking at snow falling today for most of us who have seen it.

 

There definitely seems to be some agreement in the models that this could shift to an easterly as well..

 

What's that old NW saying? 'Get the cold in first' 

 

Well, we certainly have done that.

I remember that well.. I was living in Grain at the time, was sat in amazement as the bright radar echos gave me 2inches of Polystyrene balls whereas just a few miles further West they were getting pummelled.

It's gridlocked when the sun's out!

I have sleet in Beddington - effectively Croydon.

I live up in the hills of Shirley .. Its always more snowy here. It's stopped now and melted anyway Edited by Vivian

Polar low going by sat could come this way those more favoured are to the north and west of the region. Again it could die out, but I hope it retains its composure & explodes and does some magic. :D

I certainly like the look of that!!!

Looking quite good so far, hoping that it continues hooking round through the Irish Sea, with the jetstream helping with convection.

Fingers, toes and eyes crossed eh?

There are also some very nice showers beginning to build through the Cheshire Gap, keep an eye on those...

It does appear to me on a more South-Easterly track rather than South through Ireland/Wales..

But even if it does, Alex Deakin reiterated a few minutes ago that by the stage it reaches the South East, the snow will be confined to the hills. So maybe the less cold air (which is forecast for Friday) will already be in place?
