    Is it still snowing now ???

    my local school have decided to open and I have to say I’m not impressed about the whole fact, of course I want my children to be at school but I don’t want to get them there to have to go out and get them in an hour or so

    Just a couple flakes floating by now. A number of other local school have decided to close today due to expected snow later today.

    Peak should be 3-6pm just in time for the rush hour

    850s mix below 0c at about 1pm - so up till then poss freezing rain, after 3 they drop to -2c so more snow...

    stay safe

    Wow just been out to the car and it’s encased in ice. Very dangerous out there! I’m in north Kent . If it’s snow later that’ll be nasty on top of that

    It's stopped now but there does appear to be a sheet of ice on the car windscreen. Freezing rain?

    Morning all ?

    nothing here overnight except for the strong gusts (Farnham,Surrry) 

    the snow very frustratingly petered out before it got here but we did get a few cm yesterday so I won’t moan!

    temp -1.4

    dp -3.7 

    hoping for a little bit today!!?? 

    Stay safe!

     

    Think there is a fair chance for some snow. Hard to say how much as it seems to intensify in situ over our heads and so how much we get depends alot on timing. Best guess would be 3-5cms, but who knows!

    Yep. Raindrops freezing the moment the hit a solid surface. Living in Germany in the mid-nineties I've experienced this several times. Most dangerous kind of winter weather. On one occasion it hadn't been forecast and the minute it started the local American Forces Network radio and tv stations interrupted all their programmes to issue road condition black (no-travel for military personnel on or off base; schools, stores, offices that are open on immediate lock down). We ended up with a 3cm ice layer that took 36 hours to melt despite temps rising up quickly above freezing.

    Please stay safe everyone! Freezing rain is absolutely lethal. Hoping to get a bit more snow today (not holding my breath though), a last hoorah would be great before I start chasing the magic 20c?

    Certainly a risk this morning of freezing rain before upper temps drop away again and it becomes conducive for snow again.

    No increase in snow level overnight in Reigate, all looking a bit sorry for itself now.  I saw fizzly light snow for an hour or 2 before midnight but barely worth mentioning.  Not as cold this morning but still currently below freezing at -1.7c with the dewpoint at -4c.  Grey and to be honest rather boring.

    Yup!  Even on car windscreen.  Maybe we're that bit lower in Kingsnorth than on Singleton Hill but we're just the other side of the environment centre - which is weird
