    Morning all

    Sounds like freezing rain hitting the windows facing North, that wind also sound fierce, will inspect soon once I can bring myself to get out from under the duvet :hi:

    Current radar suggests the we need to see precipitation move up from NE France but seems to struggle over the Channel, most is moving past the far West of the Region currently.

    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

    Freezing rain falling here in Wandsworth (inner SW London), though showing as snow on radar - temp still @-1C.

    In answer to someone above mentioning snow falling but not showing on the radar, it can take surprisingly long for very small snowflakes to fall from radar height to ground level - for the same reason the radar often shows snowfall overhead, but nothing's happening on the ground.

    Well doesn't seem, we had any more snow overnight.

    Not liking the reports of freezing rain now, though. Looking at the Meteociel site, we have reports of "neige", from Southend and Heathrow but unfortunately , "pluie" from London City airport.:angry: Dew points, still ok though.

    Looks like all 00z runs, want to mix out our bitterly cold 850s now, hence the reports, of freezing rain!!:diablo:

    Definite push of milder air now, courtesy of the dreaded, west based, neg. NAO.:wallbash:

    I'm ready for spring now in all honesty. The last week has been amazing, but the cold is becoming a bit too much now. 20c and sunny in two weeks please weather God's, that's my order!

    Little bits of freezing rain a while ago against the window (sounded like tiny shards of ice hitting).  The MetO has us under snow from 8am-11pm. Surely not right?

    Would advise members, to take extra care, when driving today, should imagine the roads are lethal, at the moment, with all the talk of freezing rain. 

    It's certainly put the kibosh, on me venturing out today, due to my compromised balance after my CVA ( Well that's what my GP, referred to it as ). Hope Knocker, doesn't read our thread, as I'd get a rollicking, for using yet another acronym!!

    It was either, Knocker or John Holmes, who don't like acronyms, can't quite remember??  :cc_confused:   Sorry, if it wasn't either of you.!!

    Regards,

    Tom.

    I could well belive it looking at some models for today, some have a very slow front others push it through quicker. Another evolving situation today and somewhere is getting even more snow! 

    Just managed to get to tgne nearest town to me and the roads round my way are silly no traction and first and second all the way

    K, last chance today, I would just love to see a covering, I'm still in the green bit of Kent. Who knows eh, there is still hope and if it doesn't snow this is still a fantastic cold snap. Due in London tomorrow, will wake up and see how the trains look in the morning.

    Will be amazed if it snow here later.

    according to the ever unreliable weather app that you should never rely on for anything other than a laugh, the chances are the highest it’s been all week for snow, but the temp is forecast to be just 0

    Hoping to squeeze an inch or two today, both local schools have already made the decision not to open until Monday. 
    Have a nice day everyone, and if it snows, make the most of it! :)

    Temp: -1.3c (Down from +0.7 just over an hour ago)
    DP: -4.4c

    roads like a ghost town here I have to say today is by far the worst day for driving the ice is un real! And yet the select few want to drive within 1 foot of my back bumper. 

    Back onto today and already the snow from last night has filled the foot prints in and made the drifts even bigger couple of the drifts near 7 -8" now!

     

    Using the HILRAM there is scope for more snow today and quite a bit! Note aswell wind is still an issue! Big gusts coming through here 

    7am Radfar grab vs 7am HILRAM Pretty bloody close if you ask me.. I Would ignore any rain showing on the charts to start with that will be freezing rain or snow. The snow builds from about 8-9am so the next hour or so will be pretty quiet radar wise

    Running it through then..

    overview_015.jpg?2018030200overview_021.jpg?2018030200

     

    Even by 9PM it still wants to bring snow in.. Now the ARPEGE

    Moves it through slightly quicker but same sort of idea... 

    AROME which hasn't been doing that great if I am honest
