    The reports from Scotland are amazing. So much snow! And sensible behaviour too, very few people travelling, unlike down here.

    Ashford TN23 Snow 1/10

    Had booked first camping trip of 2018 for 14th March.... that is currently looking rather ambitious!  Sure the warm up has to come soon

    Snow now being going for about an hour and half now, certainly giving a good covering here in Merstham. Certainly a working from home day indeed. Just trying to understand my way round the radar to see how long this is in for...

    Can’t wait for camping season. Think March 14th might still be a tad chilly lol

    @seb what do you expect for us today ?

    I have no idea haha. I think this situation is pretty unprecedented. Never see so much disagreement on models.

    Sadly, I can't see anything noteworthy for most of our region today.

    The light snow this morning will continue to dissipate and die out.  The more noteworthy band coming this afternoon/evening is likely to skirt through the western parts of the region (if we are lucky).  Direct hit for the SW by the looks of it.

    Seems to be backfilling over the channel of you look at the last two radar grabs.

    Very very fine snow now! Hoping for a bit more later, it all seems a bit 'up in the air' though!! 

    All the forecasts are very different! (I realise most of these apps etc aren't much use, but how can they all be so different!!!) ?

    Light dusting in Sandwich, at this point anything is a bonus.  Just looks so pretty floating about in the wind. When I was a kid I used to watch the snow for so long that I could see it when I closed my eyes! Love the stuff, magical.

    Hello - when  you say back edge through around 09:30, will that be our lot today in North West Kent? I'm completely at a loss currently on what is planned :)

    Current radar, no idea which direction anything is moving anymore, I need to seriously do some studying from the basics and upwards.

    I think that patch which is delivering snow across east Kent is moving North, so likely to lose the snow we have in Ramsgate? Unless it somehow stalls over us

    Snowfall here in Worthing in this cold spell has been pretty poor. Some impressive temperatures though but generally I am disappointed and doesn' look like we are going to get much more snow now.

    Any chance of it slowing down? Or unlikely with this Wind?
