Officially signing off from my Perch by the window. Have a great year -  Enjoy it with your Families- Current pic - 4.5 inches    my favourite pic - Cheers All

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

Some photos from the last couple of days. Near Bewl Water in East Sussex.

Just woke up and wow! I can see how heavy it is without any street lights. Chucking it down here in Maidstone. We seem to be in right place position for the showers. I apologise to everyone who hasn't got any. Must have an inch at least. 

Southend on the North side of the estuary and Maidstone on the South  seem to be in the sweet spots at the moment.

Have just come off the phone with the chief in Exeter and new warnings will be issued within the hour regarding Thursday/Friday. It is not good news if you're looking for a major snow event here in the South-East. They are going with a SW event mainly and indications are it won't get this far East now.

Short-term. The change of wind direction (NE to ENE or E) will now occur early afternoon which sadly is when the showers will start to loose their kick. However, there will be widespread shower activity over the London this morning.

Cheif was happy with current warnings in place for London, South-East and East Anglia so no change expected here.

that was website also

There will still be a band of snow pushing North through our area but noting to the extent of previous output. You're talking 2-5CM if that instead now.

If you've not seen the new 00Z UKMO and GFS, the low is further away than before. We do keep a colder flow with negative 850s but still too mild for my liking and temperatures back to 5C.

Light snow here

I wss hoping for more then what we've had so far in South London, guess it's not going to be our time this time. Even a cm would have been nice, just dustings that have quickly melted so far
