No idea i would guess alot of snow! Really really heavy rain here in southeast Kent,  Dymchurch since 2pm,  Nothing but rain rain rain....

In old money they used to say that one inch of rain = one foot of snow, so I guess the conversion on 8.4mm would be about 10cm? :-D

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

Temp and DP holding at around 2.3 and 1.5 respectively (Ampthill weather station)
I get the impression that Milton Keynes and Bedford are right on the cusp for getting snow. If we're going to see anything then it will be from around 17:00 onwards.
 

I am already watching the lampost with interest. (hasn't turned on yet but still watching it):good:

Yes it's approx a ten multiplier. Lots of things affect this, could be more could be less, but x10 is always near the mark (since ice has 9.05 times the volume of water,  but simpletons like me need to be able to multiply quickly so times ten is perfect)

"some say"... 1mm rain equals 1cm of the fluffy white cold stuff (-:

After staring at the lampost for about 30 seconds for the first time this evening, I can confirm that we have............

EDIT: Something resembling a wet sleety flake just flew past. It's getting exciting... :D

Well that's pretty gutting :-(.

I said to my kids on the way back from the soggy school run what a shame it was all this rain wasn't falling as snow as it would be a decent amount on the ground. I didnt relies it would have be such an great amount :-(

Thanks for the info tho.
