    To be fair I think slater was probably referring to a 'prolonged' cold spell (near 2 weeks) without much of a thaw as regards to 'snowy' days and if you read the MetO updates at times it looked like this was a possibility.

    So where currently is the dividing line between the cold and deep cold?

    Tell you what though, the MOD thread is crazy. I had assumed that after two weeks chasing a cold spell they would have been thrilled with what is to come (regardless of snow distribution it is going to be a fascinating week), yet already the focus is on the breakdown and it's like the next four days aren't happening. It's almost like for some of them it's the thrill of the chase, like a gambler looking for the next big win. All very peculiar.

    Yes whilst I follow the thread, I never post. The behaviour on there is most odd at times. Glad I’m not a mod

    So what has changed then ?

    If the LP goes across France and keeps us cold, who is to say this Spell which started last Friday really wont go for 14-16 days ?

    Nobody knows how an area of LP which has not even really got its act together yet will evolve.

    The way the BBC are going with the end of the week you would think they have the Blizzard of 2018 nailed but we will see I guess

    I’ve given myself a slap around the face after being too pessimistic earlier.

    With such a fluid situation, we may all see something decent, but clearly Kent is the sweet spot.

    To be honest, a slight covering will beat anything I’ve seen here over the past few years!

    Exactly. The properly cold air hasn’t even arrived yet. It’s going to be an interesting few days with a good chance of all of us seeing some snow. Looks more likely now that the weekend will be milder (latest MetO update). A big disappointment and such a shame but all of Friday could be memorable with heavy snow and freezing temperatures. I know our area is less likely to see disruption due to snow but surprises crop up nearly every time these cold easterly episodes occur. I’ll be happy to see heavy snow falling :)

    SE Essex obviously as it says in my Profile

    I am talking about actual Snow Events not the Build Up, It was cold and Frosty with Freezing Fog from the 23rd-29th November but the snow started late evening on the 30th and stopped on the 2nd December. There was no more snow until the 17th December but there was so much it was on the ground still when the 17th started again

    Hope this helps, I am a bit of a Statto with Storms and Events

    Yes I would agree re the timing of the events.  The 1987 one surprised me as I thought the snow hung around for ages.  I remember my school being shut for days.  But maybe my memory is playing tricks with me.

    I won't be too upset if it gets warmer at the weekend.  Unless there are fresh falls of snow, I lose interest once it all gets trodden down into an ice rink.  Walking (skidding) down the hill to Rayleigh station takes its toll.  So the first 24-48 hours are best for me.

    Quite confident we will do alright this week

    If we do get the slider low on Friday then a week it will be or more!...5c recorded on Friday so not sure that warrants start of the cold spell but that's when the continental air started to come in, bring the grains in first Paul :)

    Beautiful winters day, but wind is definitely increasing and dew point was -4 at noon and is now -8 . We are on the edge of the Amber warning but in the past Coulsdon does quite well with Thames streamers, in 2010 we had 44cm up here on the north downs. I'e a feeling we might see similar or hopefully more by the end of the week.

    We had ditches in early April with remaining snow in - no wonder though considering the size of the drifts!

    Right here we go then

    With such low dewpoints ( circa -7c ) & dusk on its way expect the temps to plummet up until 8pm.

    I’m optimistic we’ll all see something by the end of Tuesday. Then, if it is going to end come Friday, roll on Spring and Summer

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      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.
