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

Good grief. Over 70 flood warnings along the east coast now. When is this predicted surge arriving then? Tomorrow morning or evening? 

For us here it's 13:30

Its going to be felt all the way from Lincolnshire southwards as far down the North Sea coast as Esses. Timings vary according to high tide but mid morning will be bad in Norfolk, then lunchtime in suffolk and afternoon Essex, then it will all happen again when the second high tide comes through later in the day.

Was fun , but compared to the Thames streamer 03 , thunder snow 04 , Feb 1st 09 , Dec 1st & 19th 2010 , Jan 13 was a bit like hunting down the side of sofa looking for loose change.

 

im lucky to of been old enough to remember '78 , the classic 80's winter and 91 

Wow I found that really cool.  We went from mildish and hammering rain to sleet and snow blizzard in about 10 minutes and to see the dew points plummet like that isn't an every day occurrence.  In fact I can't remember a snow to rain event quite as extreme as that in my lifetime.  I agree I've seen deeper snow but it's still 2 inches when I was wondering if I'd see a flake.  You are not that far from me.  Always a funny thing with snow though small differences can lead to different precipitation rates.  Must of been in the sweet spot for this one.

Having said that my family is living in the garden in a caravan whilst our house is refurbished and the up coming weather is going to be tough for us.  Can't deal with ice days when your water supply is a relatively poorly insulated hose!

Hey guys not been able to post due to forgotten password so was lurking in work all evening and what an evening it was aye? Drove from my new house (no longer a basildonian) on canvey island with heavy rain 6 degrees and in the space of my 20 min commute temp dropped to 3 degrees and snow!!! Was great to see all the non believers faces in work- the ones who said it won't snow and then it won't settle!! Next on the agenda was the flickering lights (could see you were all experiencing the same) but 2 hours ago hubbie phoned to say yeah we have a power cut!!!! - now I'm sitting looking at all the red flood warnings worried about the fact I live near the sea wall and my parents like right on the seafront at walton on naze!!! 11.15 am high tide for them and 13.08pm for me!!!! What a start to the year!!!

If it's the same as the last one, it went round the south kent coast too.

Just had a long long journey home from Stord in Norway, sat at Bergen airport next to the run way for two hours as all the flights into Gatwick were delayed due to issues with landings and taking off. Flight was meant to land at Gatwick at 20:10 but landed at 22:20 only to be sat in the aircraft for another 30mins due to another aircraft stuck in out gate as it was waiting to be de-iced.

At home (Crawley) snow had started to melt but still a good coupe of inches on the ground, cloud has cleared and I think that the roads are going to be a bit of an ice nightmare in the morning...........how ever.....I think its great and am looking forward to more of the same ..... with any luck

Sounds scary. I suggest that you and your parents start shifting electrical, important, personal-memory stuff upstairs and collect a small bag of the vital stuff (including house insurance docs) in case the worse does come to the worse. Hope it doesn't, though.

Snow didn't settle here too well, had patchy 1 to 2 cm. All of it has gone now apart from on hard surfaces like car windows and my patio table, other places seemed to get more I wonder what caused it?

I was expecting the roads to be ice covered and slippery but they are bone dry, I got up early for nothing!!!

Well snow forecast here between 8 and 10 this morning and I have to take my car to Huntingdon to get the brakes on my car replaced. 

I mean come on, I am fighting sods law with sods law here. Surely the Fens snow shield can't hold if it has the chance to screw me over by dumping a load of snow on the roads. :rofl:

Coming to the wrong place for snow although it can be totally different in Huntingdon just six miles up the road from me.

I'm off to London for a photography event so even if we get anything will probably miss it.
