Really chucking it down in Chingford, massive flakes and settling fast.

Be interested to know if those further out in Essex and east Herts under the green on the radar are getting rain/sleet or snow?

We have been under the green here for at least an hour, probably more. (Been up too many hours already), and it's definitely has been and still is snow all the way.. heavy snow at times too. Hasn't let up.

We're in the green area but it's proper snow and starting to settle.

It's strange that the SW quadrant of London is sleet / rain and snow for the rest of London. Can't complain, we were in the sweet spot in 2010!

And im under the red but it's very definitely rain with a few sleet snots in it. Once the PPN begins, trust your eyes not the radar! Haha.

just gotta wait for the milder air to pass after later morning it should drop back again providing there is still something to fall from the sky

Interesting. I'm in the green area and it's all rain. But if the snow line has reached NE Essex then maybe it'll make it here later.....I can hope!

Looking at the radar I could get a lot. Coming down thick.

Sleeting here now, nice while it lasted! Maybe will turn back to snow. A good 1-2cm settled. Safe to say, my drive to Banbury ain't happening today.

Its been heavy rain here in Ashford for hours and its windy. I'm not expecting to see anything wintery due to being too far south and not much elevation. My brother just phoned from the outskirts of Maidstone and said its snowing there.

Canvey Island - we live right by sea wall, nice big flakes the last hour and half after rain but not settling.

Over 2 inches in Bedford now and still coming down. Bit close to the green area on radar though. Hoping it stays snow.

Slow progress, but I’m amazed it’s settling at all after the wet start.

Yep sadly back to sleet in Greenwich too

I should have gone and stayed with my parents last night in Essex where it is still snow and a decent covering

I’ve still got snow! No change at all for once I might be on the right side of things roads going white. :shok:

Typical just going sleety!

Half a mile NE of Danbury it's like Narnia!

Another promising snow event that turns out to be a damp squib!

We always seem to be too far north, too far south or too close to the coast.

The band is so close to the south of my location.......says it all really. 

Just want some snow for myself and my little boy to enjoy.
