    Good to speak to you again! Hope all is well with you

    I'm actually primarily based in Greenwich now - but hoping you guys get something nice and picturesque tomorrow. I'm not expecting all that much here sadly, I should have gone back and visited my folks this weekend!

    Fingers crossed matey. Hope you are loving life down there (and earning GOOD money)

    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

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

    I remember that all the buses were stuck on brighton rd between the flyover and bus station. It was nearly all busses lol. Bus bus oh a car bus bus bus car bus etc. Had to walk to the school and back. The kids enjoyed the hour walk home.

    Had we been on a N/NE then i would have probably said yes to a split, it is hard popping out for 20 mins and seeing 3 pages on my return (still fun reading though), but on this occasion i really feel the info from my S/SW will be needed tonight and the early hours:)

    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 

    Well I do recall times when they’ve been off despite very good consistency. Surely the system is coming into satellite imagery so one can start getting an idea.

    Still not told the wife and kids .....

    and no one in the predicted snow zone is alllowed to unless the tv forecast shows it in which case you have to come clean 

    Well done on not telling!

    Posted on MOD but thought might be interesting in here - snow charts on ECM ensembles has a small cluster than stalls the front so far south that it's all snow even in Surrey and N Hants tomorrow morning (main cluster still in puts snow in advertised position of London up to Lincolnshire)

    We're now in the period where getting excited over where a line on a map may be drawn is largely irrelevant. Models shows the general area, not an exact it will/wont snow here depiction. Same with thunderstorms, a general area is given but some places will miss out entirely. The closer you are to the edge of a "line", the more you should expect to be disappointed if snow is what you want!

    Does anyone know roughly what time the wet stuff will be arriving in this neck of the woods (be it rain/sleet/snow)?  Are we waking up to it or will it arrive at some point during tomorrow?

    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

    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. 

    Yes thats interesting what your saying there, London/Essex and South of there do better from an easterly, in fact an easterly is the best set up, although it can be dry for all of us if HP dominates. Counties to the north all the way up to the Wash and Norfolk do better on a NEly, generally speaking because the 87 and 91 easterlies were good for all of us.

    @steve From what I have also seen, I think more eastern areas rather than Wales/Midlands based. Pure speculation and a see what happens scenario but hopefully more surprising than current warnings.

    I'm just saying in busy times as this,maybe a good idea?

    we are about 150 miles from some posters in this thread 

    not exactly close is it ?

    Meteorologically I think you could make an argument for saying that East Anglia: Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex down to Kent are arguably quite distinct from Greater London/Oxfordshire/Surrey/Hampshire.
