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.

    Am I right in thinking that maybe Greenhithe/Gravesend area was the furthest West along the Thames to have a little covering. I stayed and watched our fall at 2.15-3am last night. Can' believe how just a few miles south and east of here there's like quadruple the amount of snow? My family in Dartford are now moaning at me they have no snow. Was it due to the wind direction being more conducive to a Kent clipper I assume?

    The winds trying to change to more of an Easterly at the moment, so they could be in for something later if that carries on.

    Very heavy snow now; good covering 3-4cm and continuing to build fast. I think some of the schools in this area made a mistake opening today...

    You're laughable.

    I'm tired of people belittling others just because they post their views on the what the models are showing at that time.   At the end of the day people only comment on what they see.

    I'm sure nobody actually wants you to feel sorry for them - it's only the weather, mother nature will do what she will do and any adult should know that.

    I fed the troll but the level of idiocy is sometimes overwhelming.

    The irony in your post is off the scale. The bbc got their forecast right.

    Surrey and London will get a bit of the action tonight I reckon 

    the wind is due to change to allow us to join the fun

    lets hope we get some 10cm streamers for the whole region

    surely the wind will get showers going like last night 

    cant see why not

    I woke up to a covering where I live just outside of Orpington and have driven to Greenhithe where there is literally nothing!

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
