find your location on the radar/map and you'll see if any snow is over your area.

we are also expecting some more snow tomorrow, especially afternoon and into the evening.

Incidentally, it was interesting driving from West London down to East Sussex just now. Lovely snow covered scenery all the way, with some notable features:

- Consistent if thin covering everywhere coming down to the M25 at junction 9.

- Good rate of snowfall in Surrey and up to about junction 8.

- Notable patch of no snow coming along the M25 somewhere around junction 7 or the M23. Only brief spell with snowless fields - I'm guessing this is near where the West Sussex moaners of the last few days live...

- Beautiful sight coming closer to Sevenoaks and over the Downs into Medway as our snowy corner opened up in front of me.

- And finally, a surprising amount of snow at destination (near Bewl > near T Wells). About to go measure, but looks well over half a foot. Fully white lanes, some amazing drift formations and cornices in some exposed places by roads and on embankments close to home.

Very windy in Seaford, small flakes for the past half an hour but they are looking very "wet" looks like it's either gonna continue being snow or freezing rain..

Anyone who follows our summer Thunderstorm plume threads should never give up hope with the weather and precip moving up from France.

A few years back everyone in the West Country were celebrating a rash of Storms that were in Biscay and 8 hours later the SE got slammed all unforecasted

Expect the Unexpected :rofl:

Yeah this has reminded me so much of a southerly plume, especially the track the precip up from France and seeing how it evolves!

Can't complain with how things have gone thus far though!

Certainly intensifying as it heads across the channel and widening too, if it stalls over the South it could be a 12 - 18 hour blizzard. Something we haven't seen since 1978/79

The Met Office have so messed this up.

Amateur forecasters on here proving, again, that they are more on the ball than the paid professionals in Exeter.

But worrying though if people are in it or under it and reporting nothing falling?!
