Snow is edging into the London area wind direction becoming more east, looking better for Surrey / SE London / NW Kent and more inland Essex.

I bloody knew it!!  Cancelled my annual leave so now at work by London Bridge.  Great that we may see snow, but would rather have been at home as originally planned :rolleyes:

Well, just as the snow arrives and turns heavier in SE25, I have to leave home for work at a snowless and probably sunny Heathrow, so know how you feel :D

Nice covering of about 2-3cms here in Angmering, I'll definitely take it, considering that 2014-2017 was so abysmal for snow other than one minor snowfall in Feb '15 that melted by lunchtime. With that said, this is definitely no historic cold spell, but still the best in five years, and Yesterday until Friday is certainly still a very cold period.:cold:  

Seems a fair assessment to me - not historic but good for those that have seen some action !!

So pleased, but a bit jealous of you getting all the snow in and around London!

Nothing up here in Milton Keynes, had a couple of brief light showers yesterday and today but none on the ground at the minute.  Long may it continue for all

Winds def veered more E/ENE, anyone have an idea of whether more convection will build during the day/overnight? W.Essex/N London/Herts/Bucks/Berkshire all missing out currently!

I hope that all see some snow tonight. When those really brutal 850s come over the north sea later, we should see a jump up in convection and then hopefully more snow!!! I've got just over 1cm covering here in margate, but better than Ive had in 5 years! Hoping cloud continues to build so the sun doesnt melt what's already there!

I'll wave to you along the M25 as I head from clouding over Surbiton to as you say, probably sunny Heathrow and then Uxbridge. Under the new thread titles, I suppose I should post in the other one while I'm at work? :D

We got a very brief heavy snow shower around 7.30 last night that quickly gave a very light covering, but that was it. Nonsuch Park walking the dog this morning was icy in the wind, and most of the dogs were in little coats (but not snow boots!). Skies are darkening now, so as with a few on the forum, I don't really want to head off to work in case the mother of all Thames Streamers hits! (I know, I know, I can dream can't I.....?).

Sounds like Kent is getting hammered! Awesome! Does anyone know Bexley is getting anything?

Sheppey certainly has snowed really heavy for the last 3 hours lot more than what I thought we were going to get hopefully some more can get in on the action.

Amazed how much we've seen in Brighton/Sussex, thanks to the weather gods for paying back some of the snow we were owed after we always seem to miss out😂 

Got between 6-8 CMs widely

      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.
