wow.

Well, I might just add that I am a lurker and have very little knowledge - just in case I have made a school girl error! I got that from Wunderground in case that’s not a particularly reliable place?

BBC showing no snow at all for next 24 hours for me. MetOffice only mentions light shower at about 3am and then nothing until tomorrow evening.

Are we pushing back the first snow showers? I think 8pm feels a little optimistic

Can someone explain dewpoints..

I might have this a bit wrong, but it's the temperature at which the moisture in the air condensates onto objects on the ground.

I think you are probs correct - but keep the faith looks like the supercharged chilled uppers can’t miss us !! I reckon 7am tomorrow lots of speckly showers over the Thames valley Home Counties region ..?

Wow - jackpot!

(That's a convegence line, rare as hen's teeth).

Yep, if it comes off then that is indeed jakcpot for Kent and out through Sussex! That line likely will wobble around depend on steering orientation and my gut is it will be in place decently before 00z Tuesday as well!

Personally that isn't at a bad angle for me either if it just lifted a little north.

Explains the amber warning upgrade.

I have a feeling Ely to Cambridge to Bedford (Royston incl - although altitude always helps that area) is going to be quite sheltered comparatively in the region - snow depths at least.

However, we have a very cold air mass hitting not so cold seas and the solar power is greater in late february.......so Im hoping showers are bulkier and meatier than normal (scientific terminology I know ;) )

      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.
