    I’m in Buckinghamshire. Looking at the radar we’re not in the firing line for the precip heading out of France is that right? It ties in with what the Metoffice app says I guess! :(

    Hi Jamie. I would say we are right on the far NE, some models show it making it this far but we on lighter and right on boundary, personally somewhere 20 miles SW of here could see few cm's while here a dusting.covering.

    I can’t take my eyes off the Radar, it’s stunning! I need a decent hill ☹️ I’m thinking Wareham Golf Course, that has a couple of crazy hills!!

    Wareham golf course! Our playground where all the kids went during the great snow event of 1978! Everyone from Northmoor congregated there! Be good to see a snow event like that again! ?

    Anyone see the last few radar returns, precip turned heavier expansively as it moved out of Bristol into Severn into Wales. Anyone around there?

    Funny how it doesn't do the same thing when it comes from the opposite direction. The amount of Northerlies that have been eaten up by the Welsh mountains

    Sorry to hear that..hope you get better soon. Winchester is still just outside the Amber warning. Wait til later for the Channel Low system to come  in. It is looking more west yes, but still chance of snow for us lot on the edge of the warning. It is ridiculously cold outside.. wind is picking up too... :cold:.. Bed is the best place!

    I've noticed too although I'm a bit far south for that, looks like the main area of snow is forming a few light showers ahead of itself.

    Hi I'm in Exeter and waiting for the weather to unfold could be interesting times later...

    My wife was in Exeter in February 1978 - snowed in for nearly a fortnight.

    Similar conditions today inasmuch as we are in a true battleground scenario, I would not be wholly surprised if the rain / thaw following is less pronounced than forecast, I say this as weather from the channel always seems reluctant to rise up off the channel and over the land at this time of year. It appears to sheer along the coast if it can.In which case stays colder and edges further East. If we do get rain and ice there a whole new set of problems with roofs collapsing, black ice and power lines collapsing so lets hope that doesn't happen.

    Either way stay safe!

    An increasing amount of the precip in the Channel turning sleety according to radar - especially in more western areas. Surface obs still below freezing, so some treacherous conditions likely.
