    Really heavy snow driving through kings hill and mereworth (kent) just now. Settling on roads very fast. Paddock wood just a dusting and not snowing.

    Kept waking up every hour or so looking outside and checking the radar. The Kent streamer died about 10 miles east to me and now the band I've been watching on and off since 3am is going to the west of me about 5 miles. Disappointing

    Looks like there's been a few crashes  on the M20 overnight and recently, take care out on the roads, obviously there are the usual drivers that seem to think they are invincible!

    Feel asleep while lamppost watching lol. There’s a very slight covering on the roofs but strictly no more than that it seems.  EDIT: I think it’s frost... :(

    Morning all,

    See we avoided the snow showers overnight, too much north in the flow but the flow, just starting to turn more towards the east, so would expect a few showers, to be blown up the Thames Corridor, as we go through the morning.

    Have just text my daughter, who's about to drive to Gatwick from Chislehurst, to catch a flight to Toronto. A  few snow showers, may have grazed the Gatwick area overnight, so she may see a little whiteness, on the way down but nothing that's likely, to cause any disruption, I would have thought!

    -9C in Toronto at the moment, with an expected, -6/-5, by the time she lands, after her 7 hour flight, with a few snow flurries, about. A developing low pressure, over Texas, will drag up plenty of moisture, from the Gulf of Mexico and track towards, Southern Ontario, Tues, into Weds and could drop as much as 20 cms (about 8", in old money) of snow. Think I'll smuggle myself, on board! :D

    Although track of low, still a bit, up in the air and low could stay, south of the border and track up through, New York state.

    Whatever happens, mid-week, I'm sure she'll get her snow-fix, at some point, during her 2 week holiday. I wonder, who she inherited, that obsession from!!:oops:

    Regards,

    Tom. :hi:

    No snow here in Gatwick. To be fair, there almost never is!

    Lots of snow around blue bell hill over an inch I’d guess then nothing all the way into London following the a2 route. Quite surprised

    Carol kirkwood on BBC R2 suggesting that the band tomorrow will reinvigorate over east anglia and the South East tomorrow afternoon/Evening and they are keeping an eye on it.. 

    I can't see anything in the high RES to suggest this

    Boring old dusting in Southend. Nowhere near as much as I wanted.

     

    I’m praying that mid-month onwards doesn’t turn out to be the winter oracle that many are complaining, rather than the damp squib that every winter/winter event has been for me in the last 4 years.

    That’ll be a nowcasting situation won’t it? Not easy to predict, even for high res computer models.

    Small dusting of snow in Haywards Heath - nothing impressive but the most lying snow I’ve seen since March 2013 so enough to convince me to make the move from long-time-lurker to first-time-poster. Meto radar doesn’t seem to be doing what it should so not sure if we’ll get any more this morning or not!

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
