If everyone on here could be friendly and (ideally) find a sense of humour, that would just be hunky dorey.

    that rules me out  lol

    That’s probably a good thing.

    met office tells me that there’s a chance of daily snow up until Thursday in Brighton. Nothing too heavy though, if it gets past sleet

    Are you expectig the met office to update their warning? I’m still surprised it hasn’t changed in 15 hours or so 

    Don't see the need for them to be updated. The forecast area and amounts are still what I imagine will happen. 

    It's sad that we are getting excited about some dandruff blowing in off the north sea.

    It says so much about how rubbish winters have become in the SE. We wouldn't even have been discussing such weather in the 80s!

    They won’t change anything unless something develops over a wider area. If we only get showers from the current predicted streamers, I think the warnings will stay confined to the current areas.

    If there was a forum dedicated to the strangest things that people do I think lamp post watching would win hands down...I can imagine the TV interviews...

    Interviewer...

    So..Mr(s) Smith...Tell us what you do..

     

    Interviewee...Well I rearranged my room so that if I lay down in my bed and open the curtains I can see the lamp post.

     

     

    Interviewer....riggghhhhttttt..and then what do you do ?

    Interviewee...I.look at it...

     

    Interviewer ...but why do you look at it??

    Interviewee....to see if its snowing.

     

    ??????

    Yep. Those were the days. We are still waiting. I’d probably kill myself if I bombed it down a hill on a tray now though ?

     

    edit: confused current tense with past. Don’t ask

    @Surrey, have you seen how far west these showers are?

    A few developed around Reading and I see some near Oxford too.

    It bodes well for you.

    bear in mind folks the warning only actives 8PM tonight the day is very young currently we’re seeing the cold upper temps filtering through the lower atmosphere it isn’t an instant process. By sunset it should be largely snow for most.

    Good to see showers developing a little more widely than forecast, more areas may see a dusting of snow overnight. Though hopefully the temperature will go down quickly, it’s 5C currently in the manor which isn’t very cold. 

    Made it to Prague safely, chilly here at 2C with a dusting of snow here and there.

    Interviewers next question...How long have you been looking at the lamppost...??

    Interviewee.....Only since 2010......

    I,m sure I've been looking at lampposts much longer than that lol. Only in the winter when I feel it may snow though. Best way to see it fall at night, and you can't beat the calmness it installs or the beauty of it.

    Temp now upto 6.5 here in Locksbottom although with windchill feels colder.BBC app at 11am said Light snow from 5am-11am tomorrow now just looked at it again and says light snow at 5am and thats it:cc_confused:!!Shows how difficult it is to predict snow lol.I think those to East of me and South East are more likely to see showers and really need a more Easterly element of wind to come into play as current NE wind reduces chances of snow to those in this thread.We shall see how it develops!!

    Just to prove my point just out of curiosity looked at BBC app 2 mins ago and shows light snow 4am-noon with heavy snow 9-11am tomorrow lol.You couldn't make it up:D.

    Temp dropped to 5.8 now.Come on the snow and good luck to everyone.btw that blob over Northern France is only about 80miles South now on last Model run-Would great if that could come into play tomorrow/Tuesday.Still a long shot for now

    Same here! it’s No where near as good for watching any form of precipitation falling, and is less effective in general.

    Enjoy Prague mate,great city.

     

    Interesting you say its 2c there.I have always said we cannot expext anything too spectacular here in SE if temps ate above freezing on mainland Europe in early February. Most of Europe apart from scandanavia above freezing.
