Kent, Home counties and south London general weather discussion 25/02/2018 onwards

Recommended Posts

After the Kent County Council " Snow Emergency " statement and most the Eastern Rail network stopping at 10pm, I'd be amazed if many don't get a decent covering, in the warning areas especially.

Big area over Tumbridge Wells has definitely changed shape and direction in the last 15 mins. Reckon Reigate, Dorking and Surrey Hills are now in the firing line...

Just been out to measure I now have 4.5cms of lying snow.  I wonder how much more will fall overnight?  I am in the amber warning area so am hoping. But been disappointed many times before

Decent covering in Haywards Heath now, shows that when you get a direct hit from a shower it can turn things white pretty quickly. Hoping for lots more direct hits over the next 12+ hours!

No chance haha.

5-10cm perhaps if things pick up overnight. Which will do just fine.

Honestly I see it a little bit.

1 hour = 1inch MO have 6 hours of Heavy snow with a few more of light through the night. 6 inches = 15cm.

We shall see.

I appreciate there's still a fair bit of snow potential over the next 2-3 days, and some will see more than others.. but it just shows how embarrassing those comparisons were with 1987/1991.

The low 850's are comparable though. So why is that embarrassing? And that is all that can be compared from way out. Whether any instability can give comparable snow is far more difficult to predict. Get the cold in first and all of that.....

Oh, here's another one! So that's Dorking, Haywards Heath, South Croydon, Burgess Hill...

Based on the current setup, not expecting anything more than a dusting for my area tonight/tomorrow. A very clear streamer developed missing out my area completely, as expected. Thursday does bring some interest though with the BBC staying firm on a potential blizzard.

Best of luck to all of you on the Essex coast and Kent, looks like a fun night. Some of the showers heading your way are really packing a punch with sizeable totals over parts of the Suffolk coast along with reports of thunder and lightning, and the convection potential actually increases further tomorrow.

Oh come now please. How can most get excited when a few passing heavy snow showers that  acculimate to zilch during daylight hours be classed as the ‘Beast from the east’ I’d prefer ‘The nat from the north west’ at least that gave us a frost.

Most if not all here are looking for lying snowfall not fleeting showers that melt in a few secs.

Great to not hear the drip drip drip

Not so great to see zero convection looking east from the Estuary

And where is the wind ?? Clouds are not moving up there

Eerie feel not a sound out there, where has the beast gone or is it purring asleep atm

BBC forcast just now shows band of snow hitting Worthing [and north east of it for a long way] later tonight. Worthing could also cop it on Weds as snow hits the south coast from the east.

Problem is that some of us have lying snow. 3cm that hasn't dripped away and that will still be there tomorrow morning is something that hasn't happened in a long time.

Snowing gently north of Steyning [west north west of Brighton]. Should get to Worthing and/or west of worthing. 

Well, it's arrived in Lancing! After about an hour of very light powdery grains, it's now snowing properly. Cars and road covered already.

      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.
