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

Just popped in to wish my southeast friends lots of snow, the radar looks very active so you should do well and that includes the coming days!..you deserve this

I keep hearing the news saying there has only ever been one red warning before this event and that was wales 2013, but I’m pretty sure London/Essex was issued a red warning in 2010? Anyone else remember?..can tell there is no snow falling here in Leigh ?

You are indeed correct. I remember that day - 18th December 2010 - as a polar low brought heavy snowfall across London and the South East. I was watching BBC News all the while to get weather updates and around 11.30a.m, the Amber warning turned into a Red warning for Snow.

If I had some proof I would post it but I can't, for the life of me, find a thing online!

I think the current warning system was only introduced in 2011.

Can I ask those reporting snow ‘here’ type location instead. Those with mobile phones can’t see your location without clicking your profile. Cheers ??❄️

Why are the showers dissipitating off the coash?

 

Maybe the front has stalled and will weaken as/if it moves away northwest wards. Doesn't seem to want to [or is unable to!] take that exra step to hit the coast and move inland.

Red warnings - the MetO press release states first red warning since new system was introduced. Various new outlets skipped the latter part.

Snow in the SE - it’s coming. Stop being impatient. There’s plenty in the Channel and France and the pivot is negligible right now. It’s still almost due north but fighting against cold air, high pressure and easterly winds at ground level.

Odd that you guys aren't getting any snow, I wonder if anyone in Eastbourne is.. as we are bang in the middle of Brighton and Eastbourne 

Sadly nothing here. The radar shows the precipitation just south of us and stuck there the last hour ?

Also there was a red warning for the Feb 09 thames streamer,I've got the images to prove it as well!

Anyway still snowing but the snow is very fine at the moment, without a light shining you'd never know it was snowing at all!
