it Ouch sr, we really don't want to hear that, do we!! :nonono: Yes a NE flow, will favour a mid-Kent to E.Sussex, streamer.

I'll just have to console myself, with my pasta and meatballs!! But let's wait and see, what the next 24 hours bring!!

Regards,

Tom.

Well my pasta and meatballs, were gorgeous, eat your heart out, Gino D'Acampo!!

Although. I still feel with a NE flow, conditions will be more favourable, for a mid-Kent >E.Sussex streamer to form,850 temps of -13c/-14c, flowing over the southern N.Sea and sea temps of around +7c, just off the Suffolk coast, may give snow showers, a bit more oompn, than normal to make it down to SE London/NW Kent, before the air dries out too much, having travelled, the length of Suffolk and Essex, to get to this area.

Still would expect more action, over mid-Kent though, with showers having a longer sea track.

Couldn't understand, when I was younger, why BBC graphics, covered the whole of SE England, with heavy snow showers but in Bromley, NW Kent, we had mostly clear skies, while off to the east, over the Medway towns I could see a never ending chain of dark grey skies, were moving forever south-westwards! After being on the internet and this site, I now know why!! The flow was from the NE!!:wallbash:

Regards,

Tom

have good view from loft ( crows nest ). Can see past Dartford Crossing into Canary Wharf and sky looks clear to the West. Looking North East towards Canvey it looks foggy so could be a sign of incoming shower.  East looks cloudy but can see broken cloud towards Medway.

1-2M?? Blimey, that's quite some burst of snow! I think I can afford to raise my expectations considerably now after hearing that :rofl:

And Canterbury.

Far too localised this event.

In the old days when you got a beast the whole of the S.E would get plastered. ( usually wth 6#8 inchs of the stuff)

Not living up to expectation.

What’s the best radar to use for snow? I’ve got the NetweatherSnowRadar but not sure if there’s a better one out there. Thanks in advance! 👍❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

      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.
