    Yeah ECM still east of the GFS but not too much snow for most of the are as snowking states. Western parts probably still best placed and would only need a small correction eastwards to bring in a heavier spell of snow into the west of the region.

    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 still keen on decent snowfall through the region on Friday:

    All snow, and I'm just waiting for it to update the next few frames but it looks like it might introduce another spell of snow from the south on Saturday

    I've been asking Alexa about the snow. Apparently I've a 68% chance of snow tomorrow in Ashford and it'll be about 2.2cm. :D:rofl:

    And unbelievably ithis ECM run gives us a chance for yet more snow on Saturday and no sign of a warm-up.  Cold till Monday and beyond!  Incredible!

    Wouldn't need much of a shift for me to get 10cms from the combined systems, which I'd gladly take right now!

    Anyway getting close to real time now, will soon compare what the models suggests to the radar coming out of France and try to get a feel for what model is closest to the mark.

    Absolutely, the radar watch will be key

    Just for fun, the system which moves North into the region during Saturday afternoon pivots over London, and eventually clears the region about 3-6pm on Sunday - mostly light precipitation again but falling for quite some time - a little bit sleety towards the far east
