I guess Surrey is out of the running for the next couple of days?

This is what I want to know too!

there are three distinct possibilities according to my research:

1• Very very likely we will have several prolonged snow showers

2• Highly probable that the showers do not make it into Surrey at all but veer South into Brighton

3• Another night with no snow whatsoever, but we get treated by the press as if we did  actually get snow, and eventually I switch off the local radio in disgust - and spend the rest of the day picking my nose at work

Genuine question (though probably the wrong thread, but this is the only place I post): this very fine powdery snow seems to me to have quite a distinct, almost chemical smell. Have never noticed this with snowfall in the past. We have an enclosed basement terrace which is thick with snow and I notice it every time I go out there (it's not normally stinky, I promise!) Is there any  scientific basis to this, or am I just going a bit potty?

There is a massive blob of precipitation hopefully which will hit crawley.

Has anyone got one of these? Temp and humidity seem fine but pressure is way off! It's been set up since 10:00am so it's had time to settle. There's no adjustment possible either...

Just started snowing here again in St leonards-on-Sea. Had 5cms of level snow on a flat surface from the snowfall earlier today.

I've got a hospital appointment in Sidcup at 10am tomorrow but cancelling that having seen the footage of the A21 on the news earlier. Currently -2.5c here.

Just had a brief, moderate-heavy shower. It begins! (Unfortunately I can't stay up tonight, so I have set my alarm for 4:45).

      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.
