Recommended Posts

Latest guidance calls for all snow, heavy at times combined with 25-45mph winds on Thursday for the entire Southeast (relevant warning issued about an hour ago - https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings#?region=se&date=2018-03-01&regionType=area ) and more of the same on Friday (relevant warning updated to expand Southeast a few minutes ago - https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings#?region=se&date=2018-03-02&regionType=area ) and the potentially more of the same on Saturday before milder air arrives (relevant warning issued a few minutes ago - https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings#?region=se&date=2018-03-03&regionType=area ).

Confidence:

Thu  -85%

Fri - 70%

Sat - 60%

Like a hardened crackhead I'm now browsing buienradar.nl to work out when I might get my next fix of the flakey white stuff!

With the sun rays melting some snow and the cold temperatures, we now have some icicles forming, will look great as the sun goes down..

Its just about freezing, we have a thick layer of snow, roughly 8CM's,  yet on the roads and pavements that have been cleared the snow fails to set during the day and the current laying snow is melting away

The next six hours and next 36 hour models I’m looking at has snow pushing into the estuary sporadically through the afternoon and evening. Still think we have more snow to come.

still snowing in Higham.

Nothing settled from the last 10 mins mild shower. Others that had some snow now melted in NW Kent and SE London.

Got to laugh.

Wow, a lot changed over London area since I left for work at 11.30am. Loads of snow showers spreading west of London, drove through several going across south London, down the A3 than round the M25 to Heathrow where I work. Love the 'snow curtains' marking the front of the showers before going in a visibility reducing.

Hopefully those who missed out in London are a little more happy now, though showers only giving a dusting for now.

Could we get a -10c tonight in the region. I think we could under clear sky and snow cover.

Still got no more than a couple of flakes floating through the air here...

Crazy snow shower just passed through where my Mum lives (Ashford, Middlesex). Covered surfaces in minutes, but then calmed down  :wallbash: 24 hours of that and we’d be sorted!

The sun is out, temp is -2.4, but certainly feels warmer than that. 

How can snow melt at such temperatures? It really is!

The temperature must have crept above freezing where you are? Otherwise it wouldn’t be melting.

Still -0.8c in the shade in Southend. But that sun is really getting to work on the snow pack, drip, drip.

Roads will be lethal after dark with temperatures down to -7c or even lower in some spots.

Mostly melted here too, bizarre considering the current temperature is still only 0.3C, but I imagine the high dewpoints and higher almost March sun is the reason why.
