Quite a nice upgrade in the long range MO Forecast today for early Jan. Something good brewing perhaps?

Depends on the quality of sprouts on Christmas Day :oops:

Any chance of showers giving the odd unexpected covering n of the thames tonight?

I’ve not had a real look at the parameters, unsure about a covering perhaps above 200 meters. Some falling snow I’d say may be possible. I do know BBC graphics showed wintry showers more-so to west in our region, tomorrow morning possibly more conducive. Therefore the last radar watch in a little while?

Seems strange to look out at the garden and see green instead of white. The snowmans body has survived quite well although he lost his head yesterday!

Only been upto to 4.6c briefly this afternoon but it did feel much warmer than that outside as there was plenty of sunshine. Looks like a cold one tonight, temp already down to 0.5.

Entering a rather “boring” spell of weather for the next 10-14 days I think. Let’s hope for some Xmas cheer and a cold spell from a more Easterly quadrant come the new year. Not sure about everyone else, but Northerlies don’t float my boat. We are always the last stop and too much marginality involved. Hoping Santa gives me a roaring ENE’ly, -15 uppers and a 2 day Thames Streamer....😂

On the 127, biggest burst of snow you could have back to rain now though

Raining when i left Maldon but i had to do a double take a few miles up the road in Bicknacre as all the parked cars and grass had a layer of snow/slush on them! Even the road was actually slushy on closer inspection. 

Continued heavy sleet/snow as i drove further but now in Basildon it's just rain. It was a suprise if nothing else!

Not a pleasant morning here in East Suffolk. Plenty of cloud moving quickly through on a gusty wind and temp only 3C. But a nice satellite image of the culprit - an area of low pressure spinning around in the North Sea just off the coast, throwing bands of showers across East Anglia.

In Rayleigh this morning, another demonstration that snow DOES settle on a sodden wet ground after persistent rain! 
Massive flakes that turned everything white before it slowed and stopped around 7.45am.

Nice to see, it melted quick afterwards for a trouble free run to work :)

Lots of black ice this morning, still a touch of snow around. pavements were a nightmare. Lovely fresh breeze, not. 

I dare say it is already milder. Didn't feel as cold this morning.

Good Morning everyone.

Even now the footpaths are very slippery where the sun has not to work and there is black ice.

It was a real surprise to see the snow on our car windscreen this morning.

Kind Regards
