Major drifting up death hill !

Haha! Grew up in Vigo - was 7 in 1987 - probably why I’m radar watching now 👍

It looks as if the cold has won this particular skirmish over Crystal Palace - we did get up to the dizzy heights of -0.8 at about 7 pm but are now back down to -1.2 and the snow, albeit fairly light, is intensifying and settling again on the (gritted) road outside.

The temperature has been continuously sub-zero for 72 hours, the first time this has happened since 2010/11 I would imagine, and quite remarkable for so late in the season.

sadly, during this whole cold spell, despite every surrounding county getting at least a decent covering, i haven't as yet had enough snow to build a snowman. even as i sit here under an amber warning, it still doesn't look like i will. :sorry:

Settling ok here now everything white again

but very thin coating

Do you not have an existing snow cover where you are snowbob?  Usually Biggin Hill does very well for snow.

Although very light snow at present I fear it won't amount to much. Does seem to fizzle out as it hits the coast. Who knows overnight it may surprise me.

I am on Jnc 5 of the M25 just north of Sevenoaks, we have had moderate snow for the past hour, so I suspect Biggin is getting it too..

certainly a turn up for the books tonight, with various models not getting the eastern extent of the snow moving north again.

Worth noting plenty of reports of freezing rain now in coastal areas of the SW, I suspect only a matter of time before they spread to coastal places in Hampshire and W.Sussex as well, so keep a close eye on it. DO NOT travel if it starts to freezing rain, it is so dangerous!

Oh no, not you too. I think Hayley should get herself home quickly, have a hot chocolate and thaw out. Then dive under the duvet and when she wakes up in the morning, it might just seem, like a bad dream!!

Regards,

Tom.
