Is being directly under/around that line a good thing? I hope so!

Would that have a more easterly flow to it

or same again

Posted wrong chart. Looks like a trough moving through on perhaps an W-WNW angle as winds back towards ESE

Bigger, floaty flakes now that don't want to stick so readily, but looks amazing. Properly heavy in SE12

Be patient. You might well get some more, soonish. You could go to the top of Folly Hill and experience more.

New Warning just issued for Thursday!

Between 09:00 Thu 1st and 23:55 Thu 1st

There is potential for a spell of snow, which could become heavy in places, accompanied by strong winds, to move slowly north from Thursday morning onwards. Delays and cancellations to public transport are possible, as are delays to travel on roads; some stranding of vehicles and passengers could also occur. Some rural communities could become cut off. Interruptions to power supplies and mobile phone coverage are also possible.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A weather system is expected to move slowly north through Thursday, initially affecting the south east of the warning area before intensifying and pushing north across the rest of the warning area later on. As it comes into contact with the very cold air resident over the UK, it has potential to produce widespread snow, accompanied by strong to gale force winds. This warning has been updated to include earlier snowfall in the southeast, and to extend the area slightly further north. The confidence level has increased, whilst the impact level has been reduced - a separate, smaller area of higher impacts is catered for with an Amber warning.

I hope that all see some snow tonight. When those really brutal 850s come over the north sea later, we should see a jump up in convection and then hopefully more snow!!! I've got just over 1cm covering here in margate, but better than Ive had in 5 years! Hoping cloud continues to build so the sun doesnt melt what's already there! 

I feel your pain after living in Thanet for 20 yrs. Amazing how just up the road we have 7/8 cm. Good luck for later!
