Officially signing off from my Perch by the window. Have a great year -  Enjoy it with your Families- Current pic - 4.5 inches    my favourite pic - Cheers All

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

Some photos from the last couple of days. Near Bewl Water in East Sussex.

    The latest run of the UKV is very uninspiring out until 9AM on Tuesday. Yes there are snow showers around but no streamers or banding going on.

    I think this is the first time I have seen the new 'powder snow' colouring being shown :D

    Turquoise is it?

    We know it’s all going to be snow and powdery makes a refreshing change in lowland south east London will soak this up best I’ve been used too is wet snow, for for the last five years.

    Evening all! So I haven’t read anything over the weekend as not had great reception. I came back to try and catch up and I have no idea what’s happening ? apparently it’s all over and we aren’t having Armageddon, then we are, then the forum has split ? I’m lost! Are we on track for the greatest winter/cold/snow or not. I’m  I can’t catch up with so many pages, any chance someone could tell me are we upgraded downgraded or no idea? I would be really gratefully :)

    Ok, I’ve set my alarm for 05:30 in the morning. Tomorrow I’ll probably do an all night lamp post watch, with some bovril at the ready. Good luck everyone, and let the fun and games start!

    Its normal, it happens every time we have a big cold spell (so about once every 10 years!)

    Hence why i haven’t seen it ! At least we know we are in for a treat, showers cropping up slightly further south no just NE of wash, runs in line with METO forecast vid this evening, with flurry’s kissing east anglia by 10/11 pm!

    All these members from Essex stop cheating your Anglian and north of London:rofl::nonono:

    I think a more accurate division would be north or south of the River Blackwater. ????

    Not much on the radar still really, clearly some instability wayup north but things are being kept in check in the North Sea, so the AROME model is probably being too agressive as are several early forming models. Lets see where we stand by 02z (not that I'll be awake!)

    Yup, it's a pretty night out there. Bone dry and fresh with that gorgeous half moon. Almost a mackerel sky with that high, thin cloud sheet.

    Hi! The easterly winds have made it seem as if the planes have been taking off from outside my house. Luckily easterlies aren’t prevailing so it doesn’t happen too often. We often see snow up on Box, Holmbury and Leith Hills and Dorking certainly has it’s own microclimate. Not sure if that will be a good or bad thing this week. 

    We get our own microclimate here too. Been here 6 years and only had snow in 2012/13 winter. Previously I was in Epsom and the last snow there was 2010 and over a foot high.

    I am moving the East Midlands in a couple of months so hoping we get a good blast here before we leave.

    Just to let Southeastern commuters know that they are recommending people try to complete their homeward journeys by 6PM tomorrow night as heavy snow is forecast from around that time.....
