    Surprised to wake up to a covering of 2cm here in RP. (now makes this the best event since Jan 2013!). A band of snow showers must have passed through London I guess.

    Cold with a temperature of -4.8C

    A very light dusting for me in Dover. Can still see the green of the grass in the garden. 

    Ah, sounds the same as us, came down just after midnight. So close but so far! At least he should arrive safely. 

     

    Loving snow and living in a teflon zone is like supporting a rubbish team at football. I love football but I know my team will never do well. Maybe this time, maybe, maybe.....no...not this time. Still always next season! Chin up. :)

    We are still under amber until ten, I am assuming that's for the other areas that were pummelled, clearish skies here.

    Beautiful clear skies here too. I’m headed off for Maidstone shortly, it might be a different story with the skies and the roads there....

    Well, what a surprise!! Up early again. A bathroom visit, at just gone midnight, revealed our Close, pavements and grass verges, totally covered, in snow. Now what's happened here, I thought. Two options, occurred to me :

    1. Some of the more, beefier snow showers, had made it all the way down to SE.London, making it past, Suffolk and Essex, unusually!!                                               or

    2. The subtle change in direction of flow, from NE to ENE, which some of those 700 hPa charts, had predicted for around 3 to 4 a.m., had occurred earlier.

    Having had a quick look, at the radar, the second option, looks the more likely reason.

    Going off to read all the reports, from late last night. I know one thing, my poor wife, is going to have a struggle getting to work at Chislehurst/Elmstead Woods border.

    She's booked a cab for 6.30 and they always have great difficulty, in getting up our Close, in snowy weather. Hoping that the snow is still powdery and there's not too much ice about. I sense a " double fare ", coming on!!

    Will report back later.

    Regards,

    Tom.  :hi:

    Well fortunately my wifes'  cab, turned up on time. She's arrived safely and no doubt Chislehurst has more than Lee, being 50 mts, higher. Just estimated, we have between 1 and 2 inches, on our driveway.

    The slightest of dustings here but it does make a look like that more wintry than it had done yesterday.

    Still big uncertainties regarding tomorrow's possible snow event more likely in the west but even this may get some if the ecm is correct. High resolution models also Greaves ecm but the gfs is a bit further West and doesn't have quite so much precipitation coming up from France on Thursday and said Focus is mainly on the front on Friday. Ecm horse has a front on Friday looking still pretty good with totals probably about 3 to 4 inches across the region with a little bit more towards the West.

    We've had something similar here as well though we did get the lightest of dustings which makes it look wintery outside

    I don’t think we will get all that much in Surrey but I am willing to be surprised!

    my brother in law is flying into Gatwick early Saturday morning - I wonder what will happen then!
