I never thought I'd say this because I love snow, but I need to get out. Haven't spoken to another human being since Monday face to face. I'm starting to rock back and forth. My boyfriend is meant to come tomorrow and if we get more snow, that's not happening.

I know exactly what you mean, I have been forced to bake bread because our road is so lethal and the local shop hasn't had any deliveries....

I think there is a lot of wishful thinking in this thread this evening 😄

Well the snow is fab here in Woking, it's still snowing heavily and the radar looks amazing. So I'm not so sure? ;)

Tonight, by midnight tonight. Incredible change.

Thank you for cheering me up after a rubbish day at work!

I have kept half an eye on the radar when I could at work and wasn’t fancying our chances.  And after watching the snow to the north and west of us all week here in se Kent, I would love to end the week with some decent snowfall!

Where are you that it’s that bad?

Good ECM for sure, though IMO still maybe on the low side for some!

Also Nick,I note the 12z ECM still has a region of freezing rain for the south coast, particularly Hampshire and W.Sussex. Hope that doesn't happen as it will be like an ice rink.

Snow, followedby ice, followed by another dumping of snow on Friday daytime. Madness!

I do too: I took a two-mile round trip in order to collect my latest 'Fit Note'; I might as well have come back with my Death Certificate!:cold:

I bet Tunbridge Wells has changed a wee bit since I moved away in 1970?:D

PS: MY 'Death Certificate' was a reference to the state of the pavements BTW!

AT LAST!!!

Had to happen given the models have all upgraded and the real time reports were suggestive that the yellow warning wasn't going to be enough.

Hi guys, fairly new to all this.

Could someone summarise what storm Emma is doing? Is it as predicted? How far North do you reckon it will push?

one of the ironies of this fantastic cold spell is that I have been trying to buy a 4WD car, but I am snowed in so cannot go and get, on the irny

Cheers
