    Love this rare timenin British weather where we can be guessing where and when places will get snow, not if and what? ?

    Yep, in all honesty I've been looking at the high RES models all day and couldn't tell you where will see a dusting or more substantial snow in the morning, some show right up the Thames into Berkshire, some show nothing, some show just east counties. 

    That's why I love this kind of setup! Nobody has a scooby

    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

    I work for Ringway Jacobs / Essex county council, double grit runs tonight, and all out all week, 8 runs a day, even the rusty old ploughs were tested on Friday, anyway 20grams of salt each run, 60g of salt on the roads by tommorow morning, out at 2am for my go at gritting will be getting my map reader to update me on the radars, they love me at work, always tell them what the weathers doing, I told them about this spell before the bosses were stressing out Friday when they requested more info from Met office! Salt been brought in at a steady rate!

    Forgive my ignorance mate, but 20g of salt? I have more than that on my chips?! What am I missing? ?

    That latest METO forecast is much better than the Metogroup BBC, one - a decent mention for snow showers and 'accumulating snow' tonight & then another good mention for us & our amber warning on Tuesday and a 'longer spell of snow' good stuff. As others have said barely a mention on the BBC forecast for us; all of the focus was on other eastern areas and Scotland etc all the time.

    One of the main reasons I cancelled my TV licence.

    Love the storm glass pics! Have been looking for a good one. Can anyone name the one shown? Such a cool piece of forecasting history...

    Thanks for looking after us and working at night in this cold weather

    No problem buddy, have to keep the country going, what people don’t understand is that you have to start driving in the snow for the salt to begin the melt! Should be broadcast, no one really knows that!

    I've always wondered how the spinner works. Say you stop at a red light does it automatically stop spinning?

    Exactly, my thoughts entirely! Arome different to Arpege, Arpege different to Harmonie, Harmonie different to Hirlam, it’s a guessing game, now cast tonight !

    No. This is why sometimes you see nice lump of salt at junction, the computer next to me is a button, push to spread and vice versa, all I can control from the cab is the rate of salt dispensed, where on the road, and how fast, we have to stop the spinner manually when stationary, believe me we hate it, but Essex council won’t give funding for more up to date technology.

    Is the Thames to your North or South? I suspect North so the more northern thread but you are welcome to post in here too!

      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.
