    Right, I am going to be honest, I did not expect this thread to be so busy. Which is fantastic in my opinion. But perhaps the current plan for this thread needs to be reconsidered. As such I will soon be opening a thread for East Anglia and North London whilst this one will become the Kent, Home counties and south London thread. 

    It is done

    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

    ECM 12z is literally the definition of a tight run thing, having seen it in 3hr installments it goes for a spell of snow on the warm front on Thursday morning (several other models do this and it is something to be watched!) then freezing rain then back to snow for most of this region apart from maybe those north of London.

    Max temperatures for the coming week, courtesey of the GFS.

    24-582UK.GIF?25-12   48-582UK.GIF?25-12   72-582UK.GIF?25-12

    Tomorrow - 1C                                                   Tuesday - 1C but likely to be an                    Wednesday - (-1C) Ice day for all

                                                                               ice day for most

    Thursday - (-1C ) again a regionwide ice     Friday - 4C (Take with a huge pinch of salt 

    day                                                                as this requires the milder air to actually reach us.

    I am 28 years old and this spell will be the coldest in my living memory (I can't recall 1991 as I was a wee nipper), this is the real deal so remember to wrap up warm, and be careful driving in what will likely be very icy and potentially snowy conditions. Also make sure that any vulnerable people you might know are okay, if the cold ends by the weekend it won't be too bad but if like the ECM op it continues into the following week then these people will likely struggle.

    Anyway, here it is, for all the let downs. This is a proper beast from the east.

    Really well put, Matt. People getting hung up on the snow, just the temps (and windchill) are going to be an eyeopener (or closer) 

    Friday temps look prime if everything comes together, i.e. chaos.

    So here in Lowland East London I'm with the East Anglia/North London mob.

    Perhaps it should be East Anglia and North /East London or the "I don't go sarf of the river after midnight, mate!" forum.

    Nah your better staying here as your weather will be far more comparable to the areas south of the river due to possible streamer which you'd likely get in East Ham in any ENE flow.

    To be honest the splitting of the thread is to give people a chance to keep up with the thread as it is going at a real rate of knots. General guidance is if you are south of the thames then post here, north of the thames post there but that is probably quite crude so you could get away with either to be honest. :)

    Love that METO forecast, am I right in saying that their map looks as if a streamer is evident, possible an amber warning tommorow if it’s continuous through the day.

    Beast from the east?

    OR

    Bas**** from the east? 

    Honestly the way this has been hyped up and now a possibility of a few snow showers here and there (except those near coastal locations which is more favourable) is pathetic followed by a snow to rain event come end of week, 

    Roll on spring if we can’t see settling snow that sticks around for a few days. Here’s hoping that the outlook looks more favourable.

    Blimey you’re a bundle of laughs aren’t you! ??yes let’s hope it’s as good as the optimistic amongst us anticipate!

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      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.
