    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:

     

    Morning Tom,

    The 00z GFS shows snow over Kent tonight. Not enough to amount to much however  will probably change anyhow ☹️

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

    Radar shows snow in Suffolk at the moment edging its way towards London. Can anyone confirm this or is it another radar ghost reading?

    There was talk yesterday of it maybe pushing back across Norfolk and maybe NE Suffolk giving 1-5cm maybe, surprised not to have seen any kind of report from up there.

    -0.3c here :)

    everyone waiting with baited breath today...

    I would love to see some more tonight - what was great yesterday was the characteristic of the flakes being so dry light & fluffy !

    like bunny’s ears .... Ahhh

    Didn't like the look of Schafernakers forecast during the night for my location. Everything fizzles out before it reaches South Essex. Bloody story of my Winter so far!

    In fairness this time it was largely expected

    -1c and a slight frost on the car. Some snow left in the shady bits of garden from yesterday.

    It was, but you have to hope. I've had to watch everyone North of me get snow this Winter. Then everyone south get a sprinkling. I've had ziltch! Getting a bit frustrating now. Who do I write my letter of complaint too? :crazy:

    I feel your pain... quite a few people across our Great land will view Winter 2017/18 as a fairly memorable one

    Dont think i will be one of them. 

    Roll on Spring:nonono:

    Good morning!  Here is the non travelling forecast....

    Boring Bedfordshire 0 feeling -4, expected 0 imminently. NNE 6, gusting 14. Visibility poor due to (very) light snow, expected good. Inevitable “oh look it’s snowing!!!!” pile up on A1 has duly happened, taking an hour to travel through Junction 8 to 7 southbound...?

    Is there anyone under that PPN across East Anglia that's seeing snowfall? I feel like we'd have more reports if anything was actually falling

    Is this going to be one of those “oh,! We weren’t expecting that” days?

    Cold morning here just below freezing and DP is -1.7. As mentioned already by Steve and Daniel seems like some instability ahead of the main front, eagerly anticipating the two areas of snow moving in...
