I see you guys and girls are under amber for later this week - good luck you all deserve it. The snow drought has been broken here, about an hour ago, there was an insanely heavy snow shower and it gave a light covering. Even in central London shows just how cold it is aloft. Don’t think I recall anything like it at this time of year. :)

Nice one @matt111 :D

Another flurry now, the wind seems to have picked up a little.

 

Radar looking like it has pepped up out east just a bit in the last couple of frames, but I might be imagining that (or hoping).

My temp has also finally dropped below zero again. I'd like to keep hold of some of these flakes as it cools, if I can.

Rear windscreen wiper has gone on the OH's. I was hoping it'd be a fuse, but the book of words suggest it's driven straight from the ECU... which sounds pricey.

Yup, OH (MOT tester) confirms rear wiper is not testable. And he's a b*****d! x

I think they have. Also there’s a few light bits near Southampton ahead of those that have just appeared from nowhere.

Woohoo! Thank you.

And we now have a dusting from that last shower.

It's all going North of me! The Chilterns are sucking the life out of it

Good to see snow starved places having a starter before the main event. :cold:

Less than 48 hours away now. :yahoo:  I'll rest a lot easier if they move the tick up a box (or two) tomorrow.

We need to remember that the warning is not for snow, its for the disruption. I am pretty certain that most in the region of the warning will see snow on Thurs and Fri, its the amounts, and the wind, etc that will dictate the level of warning involved.

and the added risk of freezing rain!

Apart from the temp, max 2.5C, it's been a cracking day here with plenty of sunshine.

Had three showers today: A light flurry then a snow/graupel shower which looked like it got strong SW of me and then another short snow flurry. They left a dusting in shaded areas but its now melted.

But the snow is one of the main factors of the disruption? Basically the same thing.
