    I’m sure someone will be along shortly to tell us nothing will happen and it’s all in 2 weeks ?

    Unfortunately I am starting to agree with you mate

    this year seems to be full of promise, but once the projected promise arrives

    its all lies

    lies I tell ya

    I was going to say looks like a smoke machine I have seen in parties lol lol would suite someone who is a fog hunter ???

    Yh I know, its just my luck that my snow machine blows out smoke, I should have sent it back but it never snows around here anyway, so thought I might as well just stick with the fog.:(

    Yh the Shower SE of Clacton looks like it will graze Shoeburyness and head SW towards Medway Towns.

    The shift is definate now but still not ENE but nearly!

    ETA Mr Sherman? And will the upper low over n France chuck any additional ppn into the mix?

    The bbc extended forecasts are just as unreliable as any other long range forecast,they seem to chop and change all the time,why they mentioning snow now,yesterday they said it be mostly rain.Useless the lot of them.

    Yes quite agree will probably be different tomorrow., but that area of snow that is showing up over France on Tuesday has really caught my eye can we get some adjustments. My wishful thinking ??

    Lapland is amazing. We go most years. You’ll love it!

    Thanks, my wife and I can't wait.   Been to Iceland twice (which was awesome - briefly sighted the Northern Lights).  I think Ivalo will be great.

    First one is just east of Shoeburyness but dying a death, the ones behind it are much healthier off the coast of Southwold (Suffolk) and if these can then become mor favourable in the ENE would hazard a guess at 0100 onwards.

    This is the occlusion I believe it will be with us....perhaps a more organised area snow Monday morning I don’t think it will be that heavy but could give snow for many of us.

    :yahoo:Sounds good to me.

    I notice the showers are hugging the Essex coast now, thats always a good sign, should start getting into north Kent soon and maybe parts of Surrey later on too. Should be turning more to snow now virtually everywhere.

    If I do get any snow I’ll ‘dedicate’ it to Chris M my mum was touch and go with cancer that was early 2015, and we had an exchange of messages after I enquired about joining snow cup over at JP site. While he was going through his own cancer battle. He was compassionate, thoughtful, good sense of humour just a good decent man, despite his own struggle. I honestly never saw his passing coming I never knew the ins and outs of his diagnosis and prognosis but I thought he would be OK. Only a month or so later I think it was he succumbed to cancer - life can be cruel it doesn’t discriminate. :( 

    He is sorely missed by many, life can be very cruel. You have to make the most of it you never know when the time may knock.

    For some reason I always crack open a bottle when snow is due.  Any old excuse.  But the wine has won and I go to bed with no snow, I bet Mr Sherman has taken it all for Leigh and not sent anything a few miles north.  

    Anyway it has been great to see so many regulars back tonight. Good luck everyone

    On a happier note ENE flow is now into E Kent and coastal areas of East Coast increasingly in hours ahead showers will go inland delivering snow for all that see them that is.

    Fingers crossed for the occluded front arriving in our area Tuesday evening / night from the NW having a little more oomph than GFS and EC suggests, may give a light covering in places..
