    I completely agree with splitting the thread, it's a nightmare trying to keep up unless you spend every waking minute refreshing. 

    Splitting a city in half is an odd choice, though.

    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

    Minor adjustments today on the reliable short/medium range model MOGREPS highlighting risk of brief return to less cold conditions for E+W next wkd before turning very cold again. Ties in well with both 12Z Euro and UKMO global models. Cold not going anywhere fast.

    The previous thread was a victim of its own success and was too busy.

    It's done now so enjoy the next few days and  snow!

    When will the Met Office radar start picking up the shower activity coming out of the Netherlands??

    This is killing me...

    You’re very impatient. The real interest starts in the early hours of Monday morning where severe cold really tucks in.

    Looking fab on AROME tommorow expect greater intensity too...

    Hi, I’ve been lurking for a week or two but thought I would join the fun. Hardly anyone I know has any interest in weather (the girls at work laughed at me on Friday when I mentioned something about the upcoming cold snap!). Bit worried as I have a flight on Friday which was initially booked to take me to some snow having been so starved! Oh the irony. 

    It is clouding over in 5FB416C4-5D61-4FF2-8D39-84BA390B628D.thumb.jpeg.b2a58b34a602ff1a2be04942a2c2a431.jpegDorking - the clouds are amazing, like ripples in sea water - picture does not really do it justice. Wind obviously biting. 

    Not far from you near Gatwick.

    Yes all other regional threads are intact strange that we are split up, must be the busiest, well it’s always the te too in regional discussions☝️?
