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

Just popped in to wish my southeast friends lots of snow, the radar looks very active so you should do well and that includes the coming days!..you deserve this

its possible if the blob over ashford now, makes it to you. i doubt it will be as intense by the time it reaches brighton area but if it does, it will stick around until morning due to the low temps. just watch the radar and try to gauge the intensity as it moves towards you :good:

Thanks for the response Bobbydog  , how do I view the radar please ? Sorry for all the questions lol

Evening all,

My Stepsons' g/friend, lives in Gillingham and teaches, at a school in Hoo and the school closed at lunchtime and everyone sent home. She had 6 inches, on the ground earlier and looks to get, another decent top up, tonight.

Off to bed soon, up with the wife, at 5.15, tom.morning, as she's got an early morning shift.

Don't think, we'll get much, if anything, up here tonight, wrong direction of flow, again.. Would like to be in mid-Kent/E.Sussex, who like last night, look to be the sweet spots, yet again.

Night all. Enjoy your radar watching!!

Regards,

Tom.

Patience, it looks much better than last night! Not visible yet...

Well I've had to make a new account due to forgetting all my details!

Anyway 12z ECM very intreresting as it give us a decent amount of snow on Friday but the big worry is that we are also on the edge of quite a dangerous section of freezing rain overnight Thursday-Friday.

Most models also do bringup quite a widespread area of light snow during Thursday, the GFS is just about the only model that does not at it puts the LP too far west for it intially. Main risk zone for Thursday is for the west of the area, hence why the amber extends into Hampshire/Surrey and W.Sussex. Not to say there won't be snow east of there, but probably less.

After maybe some freezing rain we move into a band of snow. Some disagreements on timings though strong agreements about the strength and motion of the front so unless something different happens, I'd expect some decent falls of snow on Friday morning into the afternoon,though amounts are still uncertain depending on the northward extent of the front.

The issue is that it ain't an easterly. It is a North Easterly which delivers nothing you London or Surrey. Happy for Kent but getting a bit tired of reading 'best snow ever' etc reports. Bring on summer in all honesty. 

Thing is, if it was a direct E’ly then less sea track and lighter showers. Kent, Sussex and parts of Essex are always hammered in these showery set ups. London and Surrey need a trough in the flow, or a front coming in from the S or SW. So Thursday night and Friday might be good.

We got hammered here in both 2009 and 2010. An ENE is perfect for us and still has a 60 mile sea track. 

Friday is largely pointless given it will be puddles by Saturday.

Hmmm. Need a few more frames through until 9pm but the flow seems to be turning a little quicker than forecast at the moment. The showers quite scattered in the estuary but it might give more the region a chance at least a little earlier than expected

Probably but I'd rather it goes out with a decent amount of snow then it slowly moderate upwards and the next front that comes through is just rain as the cold has moderated too much.

Totals for Thurs-Fri really hard to gauge, probably a decent shot at widespread 5-10cms, but a *low* possiblity of a lot more (especially so further west you go) if the low pressure ends up a little east of where the GFS thinks at the moment.

It’s getting closer to Reigate...

Do you think it will largely skirt to the south and east of us though, GP?  Looks like it to me, but as you know I am quite a long way from an expert!  At least today during daylight hours delivered some decent showers here, about 3cm lying out in the garden,which is freezing hard at -5.3c last time I checked about 20 minutes ago.

Getting another layer in Gillingham, cars that were cleared are now coated again. Path has turned to sheet ice.

I love that all the people that made an effort to clear drives and paths are now watching them fill up again muhahahaha

Horley had better not get it! ?

indeed, I was quite impressed how much snow came from that afternoon shower. Just picked up the mini damson from beavers and the car said it was -5 - the pavements were lethal! Maybe you will need those crampons Martyn!
