Standing at Chalkwell station in Southend looking E and SE and can see there’s lots about but had more of a Northerly component so far so I’m watching the clouds pass me to my SE and head to Kent. Can actually see the snow falling on the other side of the Estuary from here. Hoping the wind direction shifts ASAP to send the train our way again and give us a pasting.

I was just about to drive to Deal from Lee, Se12,but the video of the A2 just convinced me it’s not a good idea even in a 4 x 4. Many thanks for posting it.

I sincerely hope he's not taking the photos then ;-). 

Snowing quite heavily here in St Leonards-on-Sea for the last 1/2 hour or so, snow depth now doubled to at least 2cm.

My car was booked in for mot and service this morning, have had to cancel because I cannot get out of my cul-de-sac. Several others have tried already and failed. It's a steep incline on a bend at one point.

He did mention he had stopped and the car was  off :p Im in bromley now and the sun is out and not a flake has settled here. I live less than 15 miles away and got a few inches last night... mad

I live in a cul=de-sac off the Battle Road and I can't even get out of my Close now. Sensible of you to cancel your appointment, I've just cancelled one as well.

While everyone else enjoys more snow, what's the thoughts on tonight? I think thats it for today for East Kent. I know you shouldn't really trust it but the met office app looks better tonight than last night.

Anyone from Chelmsford? Did you get much? I'm suppose to be heading for a meeting later this morning from here in Boxley ( Maidstone ) which is fairly dodgy on side roads

Nothing on the ground in Chelmsford this morning, KB.

I had a clear run through to the office from Dartford.

(As a novice/lurker I thought my first post could be useful to someone at least!).

This really is the last post, for a while Encouraging signs on recent radar returns, of the flow, starting to turn, to a more favourable direction, for those of us NW, of mid-Kent/E.Sussex. Notice the ppn, on the northern tip of Holland and in Germany, orientate more ENE to WSW, hopefully a good sign for later, for us snow-starved members!! Hopefully that will sink SW towards us, later in the morning!
