    Right, I am going to be honest, I did not expect this thread to be so busy. Which is fantastic in my opinion. But perhaps the current plan for this thread needs to be reconsidered. As such I will soon be opening a thread for East Anglia and North London whilst this one will become the Kent, Home counties and south London thread. 

    It is done

     

    A Greater London one would be preferable, or keep all of London with Kent etc..! Splitting London itself up seems a bit silly

    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.

    Splitting the thread has been done for practical reasons so that everyone can keep up and the dividing line has to be somewhere and the Thames is a natural choice. No one is stopping you post into either thread

    You're splitting London in 2.. It's like splitting Cambridge up in 2 based on either side of the River Cam.

    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..... 

    That's just SE trains covering their backsides though more than a forecast.

    In the past they've adopted a heavily reduced timetable when the chance of snow was about 20% by every model. Didn't arive and they still ran the skeleton service.

    Clearly the chances are higher now but I wouldn't trust an SE guidance for love nor money. Could come at 3pm or 9pm they put up rubbish anyway

    i've got a lovely glow to the NE courtesy of an old style streetlamp which the authorities haven't replaced with LED . . . it's the only one in the street !!

    Damn them . . .

    Seems to be theme of temperature nudging back up as the cloud rolls over our region.. I’ve gone from -0.9 to -0.4 since 7:00pm.

    usually I would understand and expect a rise when clouding over, but in this situation the uppers are dropping away and I thought that might have compensated for the cloud aspect...

    any thoughts gang?

    Us North London folk are perfectly happy with that. We take our passports when we cross the Thames.

    North London can see very different weather in these scenarios compared to south London. Take the red warning in Feb 2009 as a classic example.

    Seems logical to me

    Hi all. Another long term lurker here from East Kent. Enjoying the buzz and anticipation this evening. Only downside to this upcoming spell being that it begins on a Monday and not at wk-end when the kids could make the most of it.

    temp 1c - dp -5

    Good to hear Paul, you can see further north how the air is starting to destablise and showers are starting to move towards the east coast. Should see some weak showers getting going in the next few hours. Then hopefully its downhill from there!

    All of London including north London (I was there) did exceptionally well from the feb 2009 streamer. It just favoured south London more

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
