Looking at the radar returns I should be under a heavy snow shower here in Hove...very odd as what im seeing isnt even close to the intensity that the radar is showing and its such a thin band that its likely to be gone soon.

 

Been up sice 4am watching this come in...I fear a lot of us might be dissapointed with this one...unless it somehow back builds and intensifies

Interesting as I've been under similar returns further north in surrey and have got settled snow. Wonder if there a local wedgeof more stable air from the building warm front to the north?

Very light and fine (but settling) snow in Reigate - anything in horley?

Had a dusting recently and now have the delightful snizzle. As this is frontal and not showery like recently, you’ll definitely have more there regardless - elevation will make a difference. You ‘up’ or ‘down’ in Reigate?

Just started falling in Folkestone. 

Was just coming back to report I can see a few small flakes blowing about up here. Please advise if it’s suddenly three feet deep down there so I can have a day off :rofl:

Ah... and still you have more than me! Honestly, you get the off-cuts here in Horley, it really is a poor location for snow (generally I mean, not today). Perhaps I’ll go and pull up on the hard shoulder at junction 8!

The warning (MetO) is for Thursday afternoon so I'd assume not. Nice start to the day though.

A snowfest here, a few miles west north west of you. Quite a heavy fall going on. Hove should be being hit.

Pretty similar to other reports really, light snow with small flakes but very gradually getting a bit heavier

You can see this on the radar with two points of intensification - one running through the Thames and the other spreading North through Surrey and perhaps Sussex/Kent - hence the reports from Surrey currently. Hopefully we see some intensification continue through this band with further fronts arriving from the South as the day wears on

What I hope we are seeing as regards the radar stalling, is the warm air moving and manipulating the cold airmass it hits. As it is pushed further north, I'd expect snow to break out more widely, albeit stillmlightly in some places.

What I suspect I'm seeing is that I live TOO FAR EAST and will have diddly squat on top of my zilch. 

Still, I'm excited for whatever the day brings.

Deal, East Kent.
