Wind really picked up for a minute here. Blowing snow off roofs, never seen anything like it. 

Took me a second to realise it is actually snowing again here as well. 😄

This streamer couldn't have come at a better time of the day, tops up last nights snow and stops the sun getting through and melting what we got laying.:D

Oh i thought it was but wind blowing so much wasnt sure. More coming ?

If the wind stays NE then yes, quite a few showers out there. Wasn't really meant to happen so radar watching... last there updates have the showers move SW. If that stays this way we should see some heavier ones in about an hour or so.

Mid-Kent Streamer activated! Now we just need these shower cells to get a bit heavier!

i expect any sleet will be on the south coast only, but even there snow could fall.

I can literally see that, very dark looking out in the Thames ( sort of Gillingham ) area

The radar seems to be over doing the intensity of those showers. I should be under a pretty hefty shower right now. The clouds look menacing, but theres nothing more than a flurry.

So pleased I had to come up to town on the train from the Surrey snow desert for a meeting this lunchtime. Really got going by Vauxhall and nice to see decent snow on the ground in the City.

Light snow here in Tunbridge Wells, though looking at the radar I don't think it will be much.

Wow the wind is blowing a hooley out there all if a sudden! (farnham, Surrey) 

Unfortunately I don't know if that's good or bad news!

Still curry and proper chips for dinner! 😍

Been walking around in Covent Garden and central London. Impressive snowfall totals, even if it's been turned to black slush on the main routes. Seems to be as much as 4 inches, and if you get off those main roads, there are white streets and a thick layer still covering all surfaces.

Interested and not overly surprised to see these streamers setting up - anywhere that gets caught for a couple of hours can still do well even given current intensity.

Some showers now just north of Sherness being fed into Medway Estuary. Let's see it anything falls from the sky this time.

Netweather's very own. It's very good.Especially if you get the paid version. Which doesn't even cost a lot ;)
