Been snowing quite heavily in Surbiton for a while now, but only just starting to settle. Hope it continues and we get some coverage!

big difference between moaning and stating facts. maybe i should say that it's belting down in kingston - complete white out..... polar bears spotted in the bentall centre and that eskimos are fishing through the ice on the thames? :rofl:

It's clearly far from 'all hype'. Read these pages more closely. It's met or surpassed expectations for many. Big hit I'd say.

Wow! that was one of the best "stand-alone" snow showers I have had ever seen in London. 1-2cm on cars in 20mins or less. -2c now.

Moderate shower just passed through.

Still over an inch covering in the shade which is good.

Went for a walk to Ranscombe Farm nature reserve (just 2 mins from my front door).

 

Doesn't look like i'll be going anywhere on my motorbike for a couple of days.

To late in the season & not enough convection.

Love to be proved wrong..
