Hi everyone, long time lurker who's got excited enough by the current prospects to come out of the closet and join the community.

5.5 degrees here, down from 6.5 at mid day.

An obsession is only weird if you're on the outside looking in!

Looking forward to later

It's settling now 

I think snow chances this evening for most of us that live at low-levels will depend very much on how quickly the colder and drier arctic air undercuts the rain from the NW - which will relate to how

I've only just realised what a bunch of nutters we all are lol. All this drama for a 'bit' of snow .... I've spent hours if not days n days watching all this unfold .....Now all I'm left with is about

If it don't snow.. Get ready for "told you so"  posts later on. 

No mate, you know zero about weather and just this time it didn't go in our favour

That's not a dig, it's aimed at nobody. Who knows.. That's the best thing about generalising

That is just sophistry! (NB I'm not moralising because I think if someone is being stupid it deserves to be pointed out). But I'll say no more.

Hi All, not been on here for a coupla years due to poor winters, but this one looks like it MIGHT be interesting? :-

BBC News TV weather @ 14:00 showing all snow cleared Kent and in France by 18:00

However BBC Online has just updated and now shows 2 hours of Heavy snow and reduced temperature (Zero) for Canterbury from 20:00 to 22:00!

They really are just stabbing in the dark :-D LOL

I think this is going to be a huge flop, by the time the rain turns to snow, there will literally only be 2 hours of snow on soaking wet ground, it's not going to settle:oops:BBC:oops:Met office:oops:

Only a flop if you listened to the rampers, Met Office always went for a very cautious approach. Heathrow though, I suspect a big flop for them if the snow doesn't come off.

I think Peterborough will miss out on this but poss St Ives (Cambs) might see something but probably after i leave work

 

temp in Peterborough has fallen to 0.5c  (5.5c)  in last hour as has the Dew Point (1.4C)

Have to say still feeling optimistic, the rain is here & the cold is coming. Temps are already dropping with dew points heading towards 0 west of us. No I won't be wadding through snow but at no point did I expect to be, just to see it coming down will do for now.

Shortly off for a wonder on the top of a local 280m hill & see whats brewing.

I think those in charge of Heathrow are paranoid after the 2010 debacle when the airport was hours from going bankrupt!

Really? I didn't know about the near bankruptcy. Learn something every day. What happened exactly, I remember reading about the closure but not the financial side.
