That is an incredibly bold statement/prediction to make seeing as pretty much every north easterly has cripped SE Essex over my 45 years on this planet

I agree places in south Essex and coastal areas will get a lot of snow but further north up into north Essex and Suffolk im not so sure, but who knows it will all come down to the day and the direction of the streamer.

My preparations are complete. Friends think I'm a total loon but I'm not taking any chances. I remember before Christmas the wind chill on my hands while delivering the post, I was almost crying in pain and that was nothing compared to whats about to hit us.

It means that the drivers, who are the ones who pay for the breakdown cover will be rescued but the passengers will be left stranded, lets hope the passengers have the forsight to take a flask of coffee with them.:nonono:I'm happy to report that baby is flourishing, always a worry to have such a tiny scrap of a thing with cold weather expected.Anyone have any guesses for snow when/accumulations, for this area of the coast. ?

News to me - re breakdown services - AA certainly takes registered person and all passengers - the registered member does not even have to be driving, nor own, the car.

Seems that with the models possibly showing the winds shifting about this week, particularity Wednesday as other more experienced members have hinted at, almost anywhere could see some decent snow.

Nice to see you still on the forums kold. I remember you posting back in 2005 etc. How time has flown! I'm mostly a lurker.

Yeah someone will be very lucky I guess.

Interesting to note, this chart gave me 6 Inches with 8/9 towards Dartford.

Yep, I have been mainly a lurker for a while as work keeps me too busy these days, but just for one week lets go back in time!

I remember that one well, I was in school and it started some point inthe morning, we ended up getting sent home from school as it really did start getting deep (I lived in Thurrock at the time).

When I read here i feel hopeful but when I check my metoffice app it’s disappointing. Again they just show little bit snow on Wednesday and that’s it. Air is getting milder by Friday 😕

Click on the warning at the bottom i.e Yellow warning of snow it will then display the text.

If you have an iPhone you are better viewing in safari as google currently does not show the days to click into on the bottom. So essentially you can’t see the text in google.

myself and a few others have said it already but IGNORE THE APP SYMBOLS. they change every hour. when you read the text it almost contradicts the symbols.

Music to my ears that Paul. I remember 87 and 91 vividly and we had copious amounts here just outside Romford. Taking my eldest to his football tomorrow near Barleylands so hoping that's on and not frosted off - keep telling him next week's game may be called off due to snow but he thinks I'm mad!

If you get it coming NE then a wash streamer will set up. As it has a larger body of water to pick up convective showers merging into long spells of snow

I'm about four miles inland from Southend sea front, I understand its impossible to really predict anything but going by the current set up is this a good location for any snow or not as close to the coast?

I think there will be some interesting developments early next week, and not just for the usual locations in the east.

I believe we’ll see larger areas of snowing moving east to west (all the way across to Bristol) in response to the huge temperature differential between sea surface and upper air.

@Surrey, what’s your thought on this?

I never pay too much attention to posts proclaiming we’re going to get buried in snow etc. 

Check the MO website Sunday evening for a better reflection for next week.
