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

Already some heavy snow as far south as Leek.. which is at 1c temp and dew point (central spine cold), whereas Scarborough is how far the cold has gotten down the East Coast to date. I think is a good sign for this evening

One assumes they have the problem that no one knows if or when the rain will turn to snow and if it does, they will have to close runways whilst they clear them. Assume they can put down anything to prevent the snow from accumulating as the rain will wash it away

the runways are so close to capacity that any shut downs will have a huge effect - add on the fact that they will be operating on a slow slot turn around because of the low cloud base anyway and it's understand able that they are taking precautions  

Well, at least the snow ploughs and equipment at the Heathrow Snow Base that I drive past every morning will finally get some exercise. I often wonder if they use the equipment for other things to try to recoup some of what must have been a substantial investment. 6 degrees according to the car from Surbiton to Uxbridge, grey and raining, although my son did point out the rain drops were rather splodgy, which we always look hopefully for. The school is concentrating more on tonight's system to decide tomorrow at 6am whether to close - as it is a special needs school, minibuses come from across London and the home counties packed full of autistic kids, so they try to avoid putting them through more than necessary. During the 2010 cold spell, some of the poor things didn't make it home until 10pm.

Edit: while we are all checking our time on Netweather, I started here in 2008, so a mere 8 years here.

Yep, just thought that myself when reading it back! Ah well, one can be optimistic, although I am a bit pessimistic about this evening's event truth be told, and very much hoping such pessimism is completely misplaced:)

bbc 12:58 update was fantastic  ramp alert :yahoo::yahoo: 5pm kick off time for Bedfordshire 5:30 for north of london and 5cm widley mentioned plus could be alot more 

By the time the snow begins to settle on the wet ground (if at all), the front would be on it's back edge or already petering out.

I'll enjoy seeing the snow falling but that's as far as it will go unfortunately. 

At least for now.
