Is it supposed to stall over the South of Britain? It's moving up so fast it looks like it'll be past London by 6am!

Could it stall over the south and the south east instead of just the south

 @Bricriu the remains of the streamers early on still giving light showers across London. 1am radar update looking good low and associated precip now around 50 miles north east of HIRlam modelling at this time. looking really could for all in south tomorrow. believe it or not central London currently looking the sweet spot that will have the Met office worried when they wake up!! 

the snow has stopped here now, it's just cloudy. i wonder will it clear up before the precipitation from the low gets here? or will it just suddenly starts snowing again?

Looks like the low isn't leaving the channel?

Is this going to be a repeat of March 2013 all over again?

Yep... there's a fairly intense area of snow off the Kent/E Sussex coast that's been stationary for nearly an hour.

Nothing to report here

seems like all the snow is evaporating before it hits the ground.

Just to make you guys aware, this isn't the main area of ppn... This is arriving later and will be a direct hit for Wales and the west country.

Unfortunately not, this is not going to plan now while the highest falls look out that way this is not following what we thought it would do, just checking stuff now be back shortly

Yes it is, snow forecast here 8am onwards and on time too, heavier snow here later this evening and very little for the London area.

Arome is very dry for all it keeps everything well south while the Arepge and Hirlam continue the snowy theme for all and do bring some big falls for most the further west you are the bigger the falls although it brings a finger of warm air up the south west which could mean freezing rain for south coasts and possible into Wales. 

Current radar does suggest that Hirlam is still close with most of the action still south, sitting in the bay of biscay latest sat also suggests this. Its not actually until after lunch that I think we will see any heavier stuff arrive. It really is taking its time as it comes up against the cold block. 

This is an evolving situation that frankly most don't have a scooby what will happen next

That area of snow has been sat there off the coast for over an hour and doesn't want to come ashore.

Hey, in March 1977 there was a near identical weather/synoptic situation. A blizzard was forecast for the south, but in the end only the south west copped it - and biiiig time. Or was it Feb 1978 ...

Estuary looks like it is firing up again, radar returns intensifying on ever update with greens appearing on North Kent coast. Just checked out the window and it's starting to snow again in Southend.
