    Just worth noting for tonight, there are some quite heavy showers off the coast of Lincolnshire/Yorkshire, these should begin to drift southwards as the winds veer more northely so maybe a chance of these drifting into the coast of Norfolk later tonight and tomorrow morning.

    I'm quite a way North East of you near Colchester and I'm just in the warning zone for 1 to 4 cms. I'm not overly hopeful but you never know and it wouldn't take too much of an upgrade to get more of our region in the firing line. Here's hoping.:cold:

    Almost identical to what their website predicts for Friday then: 8C and wall-to-wall sunshine...That's the extremes covered?:santa-emoji:

    Wonder what it will look like on the morning runs 

     

    The French snow looks closer probably need a minor miracle but there’s hope. :whistling:

    This is my favourite sentence I've read all day :D There was so many showers around Norfolk earlier on including a big band of snow that pushed into Lincolnshire that developed overhead then started snowing just a mile or two west of The Wash, it's been a very frustrating day of radar watching as every shower dissipates just out of reach or magically decides to steer around us. Hopefully these showers you're talking about pull off and i wake up to maybe a dusting.. the chance of the front tomorrow doesn't look good for Hunstanton unfortunately so I'm relying on any stray flurry overnight to make me happy

    Good evening all, well well all the talk is about tomorrow night. I have just watched the BBC forcast and from what I saw this front coming from the N/W seems to be dying out by the time it gets past central England. However it could well pep up a bit as it reaches the Southeast but areas favoured are East Anglia and lLinconshire. 

    So where does this leave the rest of the Southeast. To be honest at the moment I have  got very low expectations for where I am in WalthamstowI anything falling for more than 10 minutes will be sa bonus. Saying this plenty of hours still left for changes and who knows the picture may look better for our region in the morning. 

    Friday also will be another one to watch again snow chances are there. Let's  keep our heads high and just see things unfold. 

    I am back to work in Milton Keynes again tomorrow so should be able to update what happens there later. 

    Anyway nice peeps keep up the smiles. 

    Wishing you all a great evening 

    regards ????

    Hirlam is very good for some in your area. Intensifies. And seems to stall. Could get a decent fall

    I just saw Tomasz Schafernaker on beeb do a forecast...then right at the end as the graphics went away he said in a slightly weird and menacing slow voice and a raised eyebrow 'oh.. and make sure you tune in to the forecast tomorrow' then gave a really obvious wink! Who does he think he is Rob McElwee?! :):rofl:

    and what will be revealed tomorrow? :pardon:

    Not even overly cold this morning the blanket of cloud keeping things frost free. 

    @Captain Shortwave idea of the wash pepping up the front does seem like an idea some high RES models have picked up in over night. 

    After this mornings runs I think a very light bit of snow is certainly possible but nothing more

    Morning all,

    My wife and I spent a very comfortable, first night, here at Chislehurst, looking after my son, while my daughter and her boyfriend are in Canada, for a holiday.

    Up early, to take my blood pressure medication and check on my son, Antony. When my wife and I stay over, we always have Antony sleeping on the sofa, downstairs, he likes to watch tv, well into the night. My daughter and her partner, don't approve of Antony, sleeping downstairs. It's not a show home and is purpose built, for a disabled person. I never tell my daughter, that her brother, sleeps downstairs, when she's away!! But in my eyes, it's as much Antonys' house, as his sisters' and certainly not a Cattery, for her boyfriends' four b....y cats!!:diablo:Don't get me wrong, I love cats but having four, isn't practical and certainly, is a hazard, for my son. In usual fashion, as soon as I came downstairs, I was mobbed by the four cats, for their early morning breakfast.

    That's todays' rant over !!

    Back to the weather, are we still on, for a little snow later?

    Regards,

    Tom. :hi:
