Glad to hear it. Head injuries can be deceptive and often a lot of damage can 've there without realising. 

Had one myself from Rugby and thought i was fine until later that night and had probably the worst headache ive ever had and turned out i had concussion.

Yes, A&E visit is a MUST. Or a visit to her GP.

Looking at the radar echoes, it still looks to me like any precipitation (which isn't anything significant at the moment) coming up from France is being deflected NW by the strong Easterly flow!

The beast really doesn't want to release it's grip!

Totally agree this is getting serious now. Nobody should be driving in this.

Agreed, i've pmd both the BBC Weather and the Met Office! A Red warning needs to be issued! - There's people falling over, cars crashing in to each other and worse! - Happening across kent right now

Looks like it’s drizzling in Reigate - hoping it’s not freezing rain!

Been drizzle here near Croydon since I walked my son to school earlier, I suspect it's freezing drizzle, as temperatures are widely below freezing still in the SE. At least it's just drizzle, if turns to rain / heavy rain, then there will be problems as has been happening in Kent.

It's expected to build and move north/north west, with, later this afternoon, a band of snow affecting all the south, surrey included. Tonight it might turn to freezing rain.

Wasn't the precipitation supposed to hit us around 2-3pm? Let see how the radar develops in the next 2 hours. Hoping for one final flourish but not expecting.

The radar still looks very uninspiring.

Hopefully things will pep up soon!

We have freezing rain in Gillingham currently - the road surface on untreated side roads is lethal

Amazing temperature gradients showing on GFS 06z for a week Sunday!

Look at the warm air coming up into the Med!

Blizzards midlands Northwards!

No spring-like weather expected in the south at all in March, says the Met Office forecast, issued a few hours ago. Might be the odd milder interlude, but that's currently it.

Not surprised, have a feeling March will be cold. We might see more snow, too.
