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

Just popped in to wish my southeast friends lots of snow, the radar looks very active so you should do well and that includes the coming days!..you deserve this

So guys in the no snow zone

Watch that radar today- swing point around mid to late morning when showers 'should' start edging up the thames-

Also end of week getting very interesting !

Just listened to John Kettley being interviewed on LBC, he says snow for London later on today.  So also with Steve’s comment, maybe all not lost yet.

Hey!

Good to see you got snow here. But many in the North London and EA thread didn't. There doesn't seem to be a strong knowledgable forecaster in there either. So would someone like @Nick F or @Steve Murr mind coming over and updating. i'd rather know that I'm not getting snow than waiting and waiting and waiting and.........

 

Thanks

 

Carry on............

This really is my last post for a while!! Speaking of Ian Currie, he mentioned to me the other day, that the County Weather Book series, that he co-wrote with various authors, is now out of print. I'm sure quite a few members, have copies of their, respective counties. I see that you can still get copies, from Amazon. They really are a must read, for weather junkies. I have both the Kent and Surrey, versions. They detail, major weather events over centuries, going way back. for each county, they represent, they also have write-ups on London, in the books, of the counties, adjacent to the capital.   I thoroughly recommend them and no, I'm not on commission, Ian's just a dear friend. See below, for links to Amazon:

Essex: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Essex-Weather-Book-County/dp/187233766X

Kent :https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=ian+currie+kent+weather+book&rh=n%3A266239%2Ck%3Aian+currie+kent+weather+book

Surrey: https://www.amazon.com/Surrey-Weather-Book-Century-Freezes/dp/0951671014

Sussex : https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=ian+currie+sussex+weather+book&rh=n%3A266239%2Ck%3Aian+currie+sussex+weather+book

Ian has also written, a fabulous  book, on Britains' most severe, wintry spells, entitled, Frosts, Freezes and Fairs. It's a must for cold weather, junkies!! Ian does a fantastic, entertaining talk, based on this book. I've seen it twice and it really was a joy to see.

I've invited Ian to come to our over 50s church group meeting, to do that talk, probably, in May. The Amazon link, to that book, below.

Nadda....... hoping for some in Epsom when the wind changes direction this afternoon but even then it just looks like more on/off flurries like yesterday, doesn't leave much laying. Let's see what Thurs and Friday brings, milder sure looks to have been shunted to Saturday now x
