Massive downgrade across all sites for southampton snow now guess the models are pushing it west. This week has been very very disappointing....

Looks ok at the moment, light snow to start the day

Very brief update: I may have been too conservative just now: My earlier predictions (from the last 2 days may have been right after all). Just look at the streamer lengthening again and strengthening during the last hour. The convective activity is still there and adding to it from the east-south-east. Loads of smaller shower echos showing east and south of the coasts up to Brighton. Today's snow may be more widespread after all as it all edges northwards. Just 4 quick charts:

I've got to do some work now but keep an eye on that radar - looking very interesting again.  David

Thursday is a full on snow day according to that, starting  around 7am and getting very heavy late afternoon and all the way through until the early hours of Friday.

I just had a quick follow up and it seems even better for us this morning. Pretty much bang on the firing line.

Nice heavy shower of snow, powdery, for 30 minutes.  Covering road and roofs.  Stopping now though.  Black snow clouds out to sea, I’m within view of the sea.  -3 at 6.30am.  Very cold wind.   Ooh, it’s started snowing again!

Yep, looks like Dorset Westwards like 1978 1981. Snow. Dump in France. Hampshire in a pizza slice of no snow. Snow everywhere else

Wow, what a start to the morning in Salcombe! Currently blizzard conditions once again here. About 3-4cm fallen so far, you'd imagine that could easily double later on today. Bearing in mind the worst isn't supposed to be today either...:nea:

Game on! Just started to snow . Gerrans village south Cornwall . 

 

Wayno 

Glad to see the Cornish contingency is finally getting a bit of snow, assuming  that's what you're wishing for of course. Hope this is just the Beginning for you.

Cornwall and Southern parts of East Devon is the place to be today for that steamer in the channel by the looks of it. 

Beginning to wish I was in my second home of St. Ives in Cornwall today, they look like being hit later if that steamer stays on course and intensity. That will cause utter carnage there as it's a very hilly area for walkways and roads!

Heavy snow with drifting in St Keverne (on the Lizard) and looks like more coming!

 

Will post a pic when I can find some mobile reception :)

Sign of a true cold snap if it snows on the lizzard. Fantastic!
