While everyone else enjoys more snow, what's the thoughts on tonight? I think thats it for today for East Kent. I know you shouldn't really trust it but the met office app looks better tonight than last night. 

I think you might cop a few more before midnight after a lull this afternoon

Chucking it down. Looking at the radar we might be in for a bit of a prolonged spell that's heading towards Sittingbourne and Lenham area.

 

-2.4c here.

So peps woke up to fairly heavy snow.

First lying snow for 5 years so its been a wait. Approx 3-4cm on flat areas.

Met app has me down for 4#5 hrs of heavy snow tonite. Does anyone know where this is coming from or is it a case of shower activity again. If so then thats just pot luck. According to heart radio some places have 15 cm this morning , they must be in the sweetspot..

Temp dropped to -3.2 

Currently -1.3. Will we get an ice day ??

Im not confident we will.

Few pics for you guys that wernt so lucky. ( dont give up yet as i think we still have 1 or 2 chances.).

Dare I say 2010 springs to mind?

I wasn't living down here then but my friends were and I think we have some way to go yet to equal that. I've seen photo's of their garden with 9 inches of level snow on flat surfaces, that was an exceptional spell.

We can but hope :)

Well, after some thought, I've cancelled my annual leave today and currently on the train to London.   You just watch winds veer ENE and dump a load of snow on SE London.  You can thank me later for the sacrifice I have made! 😂😂

Zero snow here in Bickley/Bromley. I don't trust the hourly forecasts on the various weather apps, which is good because there is now NO snow forecast aside from light flurries at midday

Just a dusting here in Chafford/Grays this morning. The car thermometer says -3c so pretty chilly. Watching the radar last night was disappointing, I think Grays is slightly too far inland as all the showers seemed to be skimming us by. Hoping the wind changes to favour us a little more. Any chance I might see something more significant?

Well I'm finally happy ( Took awhile ), lots of snow on the ground about 6cm+ which rates it nearly as good as 2013 :) - Hopefully will take photo's soon!

      During the 28th the weather was rather humid, but there were no signs in our part of the approaching chaos that was to hit the hythe/kent area that night, even though the forecasts warned of possible storms. By late evening about 10pm, I could hear rumbles and decided to look outside to see if it was a Thunderstorm or just some old person putting the bin out. Sure enough from then on, it turned from the odd flash, to strikes and flashes every few mins. One of the most amazing storms I have ever seen in my life. What was really gutting though, was I didn't have a fully charged camera and missed out on many strikes that not only knocked our power out, but set car alarms off!

      ......and a reminder of the Met Office warnings for Fog which may be slow to clear in a few places particularly coastal areas but should thin and lift for most giving us another dry day with sunny spells..
       
      Yellow Warning of Fog for London & South East England :
       
      Bracknell Forest, Brighton and Hove, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Greater London, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Medway, Milton Keynes, Oxfordshire, Portsmouth, Reading, Slough, Southampton, Surrey, West Berkshire, West Sussex, Windsor and Maidenhead & Wokingham
       
      Yellow Warning of Fog for East of England :
       
      Bedford, Cambridgeshire, Central Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Luton, Norfolk, Peterborough, Southend-on-Sea, Suffolk & Thurrock
       
       
      Fog patches are expected to form overnight onwards into early Thursday morning, becoming dense in places with visibility below 200 metres at times.
       
      The public should be aware of the potential for some difficult driving conditions and disruption to travel, particularly during the morning rush hour.
       
      Issued at:
      1541 on Wed 12 Mar 2014
       
      Valid from:
      0200 on Thu 13 Mar 2014
       
      Valid to:
      1015 on Thu 13 Mar 2014
       
      Light winds and clear skies overnight and during Thursday morning will allow fog to form in places. Not everywhere in the yellow area will see fog, but where it forms it is likely to be dense at times, especially in low-lying areas. The fog will then slowly clear through the middle of the morning.
