The North Sea is kicking into gear see north of Netherlands popcorn convection incoming for tonight! A fair few places could wake up to a covering more spare in nature though.

'Netherlands popcorn' - LOL

We'll be munching on that for a few days for sure with added salt convection - Very much looking forward to the animated sat images

Can't see Beds,Herts and Bucks doing very well in this. Too far west imho. Seem to be just on the edge of any warnings. Need showers to push well inland and not die out. Beds and Bucks never get in on a streamer IRC. Loved to be proved wrong.

Hello everyone. Thought I’d login rather than watch from the outside!

I was looking at my photos from 2010 earlier. I knew at the time to make the most of it as it’d been a very long 19 years waiting to get that kind of snow fall. I hardly slept from the Tuesday to Friday! 

My point was that I was surprised. We were due snow but at max 5-10cm. That night started with snow grains and I was gutted. However, a couple of hours later it turned into flakes, getting heavier and heavier. I recall Steve Murr posting snow bomb and he was right. The convection kept going over our heads. 

I ended up with a foot or slightly more of snow by morning. A far cry from the max 10cm forecast just a few hours before.

Thats the pro and con of this set up. You just can’t be too sure. Fingers crossed and feet on the ground.

It’s about time we had some snow!

Guest here from snow-starved West Lancashire, but on the way to London, staying in  Hammersmith till Tuesday eve. Am I right in thinking disruptive snow unlikely in central London over next 48 hrs?

My sensor took a couple of days to settle in but now it seems to be ok, my last one died and I can't be without knowing what temp it is outside.

In winter weather terms Cambridgeshire is usually pretty poor for snowfall , Huntingdon is lack of snow central. If we do get anything decent I shall be making naked snow angels.

Tends to do well with a NNE wind, as the wash streamer is then aimed directly over there. Possibly back in 2005/6 I remember the horse races being postponed due to the amount of snow.

Temp 0.6 DP -6.7 here in Ipswich 

Everything dropping rapidly now as the real cold uppers push in, hoping for dusting overnight before things get interesting in the next few days! Game on!

@Paul Sherman - do the met office actually decide what weather we get and if so, why can’t  we have a white Xmas and a nice summer ?

I have it on good authority from someone at the Met that Friday will b all Snow across the Uk and next week continues cold - dont get fooled by GooFuS

Good stuff 

maybe the 0c isotherm will be above the cloud deck & the 925mb temp will be below zero due to the surface feed-

Can anyone confirm in my locality (Lyminge, Kent) I've got a new sensor outside currently reading -1C. Is it close?

      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.
