    BBC guys (ie after the news) are all (most??) Met Office Metrologist that present on TV.....Unlike the ones on local or ITV Meridian

    They still can't give their own opinions though can they, just second rate actors, all controlled like everything is. And everything has been dumbed down, no proper weather charts or brief explanation, just poor or vague graphics. Francis was the 1st of this breed of crap weather forecasters in the late 70's and their 6 hour slots or shows what ever they call them. :nonono:

    Merry Xmas, To all on the South East thread. Didn't think I'd still be here, being able to celebrate Christmas, after suffering a brain haemorrhage/stroke, in September 2015. But fortunately, due

    Snowline has moved back across the water now so north kent / Surrey etc back in the fray - great wrap around as well heavy snow here in Eltham -1cm , wifey just text 0.2c in NAG with heavy snow a

    ukmo website predicts plenty of rain to begin with before becoming increasingly wintry north of London. Don't be surprised to get up to a dank wet sleety picture first thing.  Some of the high res modelling agrees with this

    I guess it’s a matter of watching the radar now to see where everything is heading. I really hope we get a covering here in Berkshire, not only for the big kid in me, but for my Niece and Nephew (aged 4 and 6) who are yet to see snow on the ground.

    Yes, NMM, ARPEGE, HIRLAM all showing main snow risk for prone areas as being between 9am and midday. Before that, it's more of a rainy affair.

    I was there! Bloody freezing, frost in one goalmouth. Yeah we were hanging on towards the end, last few weeks has taken its toll and you certainly went for it! 

    Hello Mark

    I trust you are well. You did us (Chelmsford City) a favour today by drawing with St Albans City. We managed to beat Gloucester away 2 nil today which puts us in 5th place just 2 points behind the leaders but we have a game in hand. It is all very close, and a better result than when you played us at Melbourne Park a few weeks back. 

    Am hour ago I had to go out in the car and the windows were covered in ice, although there was patchy cloud, which should keep the temperature up a bit if it persists.

    Tomorrow my wife and I are driving up to Godmanchester to visit our son and then on to Stamford in Lincolnshire hoping we do not get  stranded up there. It does look a bot dodgy for travelling and so we will have to play it by ear.

    Kind regards

    Dave

    Hi Dave. Yes well, thank you! Yes a good point for us, we are unbeaten in 6 now in league, just above relegation zone, play Gloucester twice over xmas hoping to do the double and pull away! Very tight league at top and now towards bottom.

    Hi Dave

    Just gotta love the inserted football chat in here, although after getting spanked 4-1 by Orient toady I am not talking about the subject :(

    As for the snow, here is Sevenoaks we are probably too far south to see anything, although I am near the top of the Downs, so maybe if I get chair and stand on it, I might get some sleet if I am lucky?

    He may have had the qualifications, but he b*g*red up so many forecasts, he was a presenter at the end of the day, girls loved him, he had a certain charm.

    He fronted a video for schools about electricity once and my science teacher Miss Powell played it to use three times in one year.

     

    That extended yellow warning brings us Wycombe folk into the snow warning. Sometimes quite a difference between the hills and valleys though, will this be one of those times?

    Overlap of the high winds and snow for my locale in London, could be interesting! Blizzards on the Berkshire Downs and Chilterns too?

    Kings Lynn is probably a touch on the northern side, but I reckon you could still get a light covering.

    Yes but looking at the radar ect over ireland at present,it would need a hell of a push south not to reach us here?

    as per met office update also

    Thanks Jason
