    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

    It is not showing 20cm for Reading whatsoever! I see he's a Reading student, I think he's trying to convince himself...

    From looking at satellite can anyone tell whether the low is north or south of where thought. I'm not sure my self.

    It looks like it's going past the tip of Cornwall and steaming into the channel unless it corrects due east but hasn't looked to take that trajectory yet. The fact that the system is sliding and the snow seems at the moment to be on the line in a diagonal slice across Ireland and the the UK with London giving back snow returns on the radar could London stay in the all snow or will it change back to rain. I imagine if the low carries on in the direction it is currently that many more will get a good dump

    Nothing falling here in Reading just yet but I imagine anything that does will fall as snow for a while. DP still -2C here and Wet bulb temp still just below freezing. This morning the forecast was for us to reach 7C tomorrow, now only showing a max of 3C, and only 1C from midday onward. Just shows that anything can happen in situations like this, especially where the temperature gradient is so large

    Still nothing falling here so off to bed. Forecast reckons it should be snowing now so I don't hold out much hope for its accuracy for tomorrow ? Don't think I've ever invested so much emotion in a few flakes before! Night, all...good luck for everyone tomorrow!

    I think it's rain here can't tell, just assuming if it was snow I'd see it. Very light though. Night all.

    Don’t lose hope if it’s raining now.. my app has changed significantly to think less than 24 hours ago it was all rain this has really snuck up.

    Cheers.

    My worry is that with widely ground temps below freezing any rain will freeze on impact creating an ice rink. Your location on the other hand it looks like it will start as snow and end as snow.

    It isn’t really marginal if you’re on the right side of things temperature will be barely above freezing all day.

    I can’t believe Met Office have not dragged the amber zone S.. the trend is to place heaviest snowfall just to the north of London looks good for East Anglia.

    Eek well you’ll definitely see it turn to snow! Keep the faith :) 

    Thats a good indication high up is geared more to snow compared to bog standard rain. I expect also heavier PPN will also push down the snow level, so sleety light stuff at this stage isn’t a worry.
