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?

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

Seems to be a slight growth in the PPN to the south (in the channel/french coast around le touquet) which may give us an hour or so more snowfall in East Kent if we are lucky.

Many thanks! - blowing snow in Orpington :) I'm going to mark this event as on a par with  2010 for  now and if we get another dollop on Friday and no thaw until Saturday I will call it as best since 91.. would that be a fair assessment  my fellow North West Kent Snow nutters

Had a great walk Orpington last night, my wife was like WTF - but for me to be walking in -4 blowing and  falling snow was the best and  what I aspire for when looking at those models...

I do not. Hope to be wrong but can’t see it. Nothing I can see on radar and modelling, and nothing on any live (not app) forecast suggests anything other than petering out imminently to leave a dry cloudy day with flakes here and there in the wind. 

Gatwick.

Just a few flurries in Hailsham.

It does feel, since Monday night, that we’ve been pretty unlucky in this neck of the woods but that’s just the way it goes sometimes.

Been a great spell for much of the region and, even here, the best since 2013.
