    About 20 mins ago, traffic was moving fine in High St. As she travels by bus, might be wise to get 251 rather than 252 as quicker journey and avoids Rotherfield and its lanes. Might be wise to make a move now as radar looks like snow for a while yet

    Thanks very much for getting back to us Keefo.  Kind regards

    Not moaning, not complaining, not snowing... Still raining!!


    Not that anything else was forecast, but having seen the state of some other Kentish and Sussex seaside towns I did have a small amount of hope. Naaaah.

    Deal, Kent. 5m asl.

    Starting to see fresh accumulations, which is surprising given how har it rained earlier. You can see it starting to build up on the boy’s trampoline cover.

    Wavering between sleet and snow in Colchester. Some slight coverage on wet surfaces and it's building up on existing snow cover but generally it's not sticking much.  Met Office may have called this just right in terms of the 100m elevation....

    If the ground temperature is zero or below, snow will settle readily even on damp surfaces. If th snow is heavy enough, it can even settle on surfaces which are slightly above freezing.

    Yep - Back in January it was raining for hours and then the cold air undercut, it turned to heavy snow and within minutes everything was white. 

    Wet ground does not stop snow from settling, dew points being above freezing however does.

    10 mins up the road in rainham at 400ft ASL and its raining. Crazy how marginal it is and how elevation doesn't seem to matter. Its snowing here at sea level in east London right now.

    Considering I'm a motorcycle courier, staying home today seems a wise call seeing as my day is spent around Surrey, south and east London. Do not want to be caught out if the weather turns wintery! 

    Do you ever stay out overnight for your job or are you out and back in a day?

    Supposedly snow is going to hit Gillingham in the next few hours.

    Far too wet and mild out there for any settling, will make the drive home a nightmare though if it comes off.
