    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...

    That isn't the north of the region.:nonono:  Is it any wonder those of us in East Anglia felt rather ignored by the SE majority?

    Thanks Chris. I hadn't realised that. Dan's tweets are always interesting. Do you know what name he posts under here on Netweather?

    Interesting. Models say DP should be 2 for you at midnight, and that seems to be what is holding back snow tomorrow as uppers are cold enough. One to watch closely.

    Bubs' school is closed tomorrow, one happy lil one.:yahoo:

    Can't really understand why they shut the schools down after a slight to moderate snow fall - when I went to the senior school in the 50's its was often the case during a cold spell that we would still get to school and find that of the delivery of school milk delivered that morning that the bottles would be frozen solid the extent that the milk was expanding out of the bottle and they would be half covered in snow.

    It never occurred to us that a snowfall would be an excuse for a day off school. 

    The school itself was about a couple of miles from my home - that did not qualify for the school bus - the normal bus service was just one an hour - never did use that - we either walked or cycled. 

    Not sure that it is an altogether good thing - kids need to be challenged from time to time and getting to school under adverse conditions helps that - it is character building. 

    Meanwhile if anything the temperature at Watford has climbed fractionally to 1 C - no fresh snow and still cloudy. No fresh snow though there is a belt about say 40 miles o the north of us according to the radar.

    I should probably change that - that's where I used to live several years ago when I first signed up, but have been in Norwich for quite a while now!

    Well unless xc weather is playing up the models are wrong. Even have frost on cars.

    expecting only rain here, but who knows, can’t rule out the odd bit of hail ;)

    Totally agree - everyone has become soft these days. There is no character building for kids. It’s given on a plate. But that’s another subject. Tomorrow I expect like today will have some people with accumulation whilst others just rain.

    yeah, remember it well, and the walking to school in the snow, that was how i fell into an icy puddle one day when i was little in the street, going to school. And the frozen milk, and sitting in class in gloves and coat because there was no heatingThen going home and having liver stew which was warming and which i guess modern youngsters wouldn't eat.

    Schools are shut tomorrow here too. We have a pretty treacherous maze of country lanes though, and the compacted snow has made most of the cars trying to leave our road haven’t been especially successful.

    I know it probably seems a bit pathetic that there is disruption and closures but people genuinely can’t drive safely in conditions like this because they are so rare. If you take the high school near us with 1000 students, that’s potentially 1000 road accidents waiting to happen. You can imagine on the flip side the kind of grief that school would get if any of their students or teachers were injured in a car accident in snow because they had to get to work.

    For me, I’ve got to make the call to either get my usual 6.30am bus to get to the station, or work from home. I’m probably going to take the latter, given I’m fortunate enough to have the option.

    if we get a drop more snow it’s be most welcome!

    Sorry I'm trying to learn 

    Hi, it’s the atmospheric temperature and for snow to fall the dew point at your location needs to be 0 degrees or below otherwise you will only ever get rain even if the 850 temperatures are very low. You could have -20 upper air temperature and a 2m temp of -3 but if your dew points are above 0 you will have plain old rain

    Dew Point. You need to be looking for a it to be 0.c or below or you'll get rain not snow.
