    It's no 2010! Now that was some snow....

     

    But it's the best we'v had for a few years and I have a snow day, so no complaints. Except that it's too powdery to build a snowman. 

    Must be in a sweet spot here in Sittingbourne have so much more than in 2010

    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

    BIG flakes falling now.

    Sun is out though so won't last long. 

    Edit: Looked at radar, on the edge of a streamer. Might stick around for a bit, 

    Woo.

    Hoping the precip just off the coast of Suffolk/Essex holds as that could have my name on it (Wainscott, Medway). 

    Seem to be on the very edge of the mid Kent streamer, odd light showers with the occasional moderate burst.

    Morning all.

    Woke up to an inch or so in Brighton this morning.. yep.  Many schools are closed, my son's is not one of them, I made him go and only 9 people turned up in his class so I won't be winning any mum of the year rewards in his eyes.

    Still snowing!  Albeit very light.  Looking on the radar, we are still in todays streamer.  How is it looking for today, is it just a case of seeing what pops up?  Is it due to die down?

    So far this is definitely not an 'historic nationwide event' that many people had been going on about last week. Still a few days left though, let's see 

    pretty embarrassing really

    some folk on here look like real spanners...  

    feel sorry for the ones that told it like it was but got shot down because they weren’t forecasting feet of snow.

    yamkin’s tweeting of the bbc was laughable

    Temperature rising rapidly now, despite the very cold start. The forecasts of maximums around 0c (away from areas with snow) will be proved wrong very quickly.

    This beast has about as much bite as a kitten ?

    Good to see beeb still going for something major at the end of the week.

    They have been pretty spot on so far with this much over hyped spell of chilly weather.

    Yes - just the same here - no ice on the windscreen under the snow. Although when you open the driver's door it all falls in on the seat :D
