    A little harsh mate, considering this hardly ever happens, you have to expect it?

    I'm sure there will be some surprising totals to account for especially with evaporation cooling,e.t.c 

    A few years ago rain was forecast and snow started to fall and got heavier and caused chaos in the Croydon area

    Frustratingly, the 18z UKV has budged it north.

    All the weather forecasts I've watched have the snow well north of the London area, oh well, winter is over for me then!:sorry:

    18Z UKMO actually shows snow falling into North Kent. While overall totals are less on this run, more in our region should see snow falling at some point

    Too windy for evaporative cooling. You need calm conditions.

    If there's more support from other folks in East Anglia we can certainly consider it.

    I'd like it just for the next couple of days.

    On closer inspection it's barely north at all, the snow accumulation chart is basically identical to the 15z. All to play for.

    You swine :diablo::D

    i still think the best of the models can be up to 50 miles off - nowcasting will be of help.

    It is meant to pivot and go through Norfolk. I think all this shifting south are the models working out the track but I think the met o warning this morning is where it is going to be. With a slight shift in either direction but a 20/30 miles max. They have had most in yellow warning including myself since Thursday with Peterborough only 25 miles above me on an amber. Then it changed this morning to include Cambridgeshire.  I might be wrong but I think the track will be the same almost as this ornings warning. The reason behind this is that they have been sitting on the fence before dishing out the warnings.    Unlike  in 2010 when I was issued heavy snow days before hand and 6 hours before the event I got nothing not even a flake London got dumped on.  I hate an easterly as it misses my location and it's bloody freezing cold and dry. I do better on a north north east.

    Really - the ecm has barely moved twenty miles south on its last three runs 

    the other models have just played catch up

    if anything I would expect a slight northward correction as much as I would further south

    I remember that night, was that the Thames Snow Streamer where South London received a foot of snow in one night?
