So this is it, the end of winter. Time to look forward to Spring..... Wait, what's this?        Apparently not. So for the time being, we will remain as one for this cold spell. Ple

Like I said earlier. This doesn't sit right with me. I hope this doesn't go tits up!

Even though your're probably right, you can't say that for certain until after the event.

Thames streamer possible as early as rush hour tommorow, could cause tricky commutes!! I have to travel from canvey to London and back tommorow, I’m hoping tails will be ok, even for tommorow, Monday night looks even better. Canvey is looking one of the best spots for the next few days, inc Southend/ dartford/ sittingbourne, if this produces 20’s of centimetres it would make up for the lack of snow for many years now!

The problem wth streamers is they will only effect 20-30% of us ..

We really want widespread showers ,otherwise they will be a lot of us disapointed by Weds

Im hoping as the wind veers N.E then E then S.E  there will be more of a even distribution for most if not all of us.

Just saw their forecast which was updated an hour  ago. They talk of heavy disruptive snow for the south east ???? What forecasts are you looking at.

I understand they use a blend of all model data (which we have access to), so their forecasts jump about as a result. The Met Office use GLOSEA and MOGREPS, so tend to be more accurate and consistent.

Thanks! 

Here's hoping they change they change their tune in time for Countryfile.

Yes totally! This is highlighted in Met office forecast, However, when the deepest cold is with us, likewise bringing instability, and aiding lake effect snowfall, all areas will see snowfall I’m confident with that, even if some places have a few cm, to others having 15+ I’m confident we will all be relieved come Wednesday. Also models are worst at forecasting showers, could form anywhere. Anyway for our region there has been upgraded in the last 6-12 hours for snowfall earlier tommorow. So fingers crossed guys.

Agreed, we want to see showers pushing in off of the North Sea from all over the place. Surely with the uppers and the flow there will be showers everywhere and not just the streamers.

Anyone got any opinions on this?

I don’t think they will as it’s probably prerecorded. They’ll continue to sit on the fence.

I'm sure I read a post from someone somewhere saying that grit is no use with this sort of snow as it's dry and grit only works on wet snow? Can't remember who or where though sorry. I guess we will find out in the morning :-)

Salt & grit :)

I think tomorrow morning will be fine. Tomorrow evening might be localised issues but morning is looking ok , unless something special builds up overnight!

They will be fine, however if it was Tuesday at 10 a different kettle of fish, even later Monday could cause problems.

I’ve not seen the latest forecast from them, but they have been very poor over the past few days.
