    No, metres. 

    To be honest tomorrow is looking very, very limited for snow potential now. There will be a lucky few but for the most of us it will either be dry or rain.

    Ah damn. Well I suppose it's just being greedy after today's great surprise.

    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

    Day off work tomorrow, may pop to Biggin Hill on the N Downs (above 200m) to get a snow fix if it looks like rain lower down where I live.

    It looks as if tomorrow's storm will generate strong NE winds and result in higher DPs...more generally marginal than today. That means I'll see rain all of the time.:shok:

    That's ok, I want to go to Norwich on Tuesday,, don't fancy it if it snows then ices up tomorrow night.

    I wouldn't be totally so quick to rule out snow, settling snow will probably limited to the west 50milesor so the band, but I'd bet most places see at least some snow. I'd not be at all surprised if somewhere gets 5cms tomorrow, though obviously best places will be on higher ground.

    If the skies were to clear overnight on snow covered ground, would that aid our chances. It looks like staying cloudy here, though.

    i'm looking at the radar, watching a small pink blob, hoping i might catch 10 minutes of light sleet... how sad is that:sorry:

    Same. And I've been shamelessly stood at my back door with torch on my head trying to see sleet ?

    So the snow chances have basically gone for tomorrow, at-least I can say I saw a lot of snow  today but sad the rain will wash it away.

    I'm working in East Grinstead tomorrow at about 109m asl so who knows. Always fun driving through Turners Hill in marginal situations.

    I'm no professional and I'm scared of the same thing happening.

    Last night was cool and the situation certainly developed nicely for us in the N w London and other areas when the BBC said we would be really windy and around 7c however when the Sat started showing the Low pressure not going in that direction surprises started popping up.

    Although temps are a bit to high at the moment

    The bbc are still going for max temps of 2 degrees tomorrow so still dont know what to think.

    Skies have cleared here and it's feeling very cold. The roads and pavements are going to be so dangerous tomorrow if the temperature drops further! Wonder if we'll see more snow?

    I really do not think tomorrow's event can be called. If they are saying "settling above 100m", then that is far too close to call. The difference between settling at 50m and 150m can be thrown out so very easily. Dew points and temperatures can't be confidently predicted to within 0.5 of a degree even 3 hours before the time, intensity on a front is a total pain to forecast. One thing you always hear again and again in a snow event is "I was expecting that!" or "Total letdown". I confidently predict between 0cm and 10cm of snow tomorrow for the South East!!

    Some pretty heavy rain lurking off Brittany headed our way for tomorrow, seems further north than model progs, ARPEGE against radar for 20:00

    Yes nick keeping a keen eye on the track of this storm...certainly looks further north as it makes inroads...and current track look like large swath southern/central england.

    And some intense ppn being modeled.

    V-intresting!

    Some might over higher ground in the NW of our region, but i believe it's mostly likely to be rain for the SE.

    Most of us on here are hoping it does when it bumps into the cold air over the UK, though the strengthening NEly bringing higher DPs off the N Sea may make it too marginal in places at lower elevation - especially toward the east.

    Overheads-dependant...

    But as we have seen today...

    Suprise locations/ and marginality will be the order!
