Kent, Home counties and south London general weather discussion 25/02/2018 onwards

A band in the channel near the coast is building but will it give us much snow? One or 2 bands hardly did y'day. It is NOT the main band that is expected later this afternoon.

very granular snow / rain coming down in Hastings. Absolutely freezing and feels far colder than the -7 wind chill my Vantage Pro is telling me.

The latest HIRLAM show the band today largely bunny hopping over us in the SE'ern corner. They've done pretty well on most of this so I would expect very little this afternoon for most of us.

West Sussex more likely to catch any decent fall, but let's see.

Just listening to the radio - the biggest UK snow depth recorded yesterday was 51cm in St Athan (happy St David's Day).

Aimee Fuller has just arrived back from Pyeongchang and took to the streets of London to do some impromptu slopestyle with the aid of some TRX gym bands to toe her in. Exciting times!

Temps seem to be dropping here, fingers X'ed the main band of precip is snow later  :)

Not sure what you're looking at but the latest (6Z) shows quite the opposite and is currently spot on. Heavier stuff incoming now to cover the SE in the next hour or so and then ongoing until after 6pm.

Bit confused by posts above. Is it building up nicely for us or missing the SE?

Looking better for mid-west sussex if it starts to move nW or NNW.  Or will expand eastwards...??

Drizzle has now turned to snow grains and intensifying. Everything seems to be going white again.

Temp -1.7C

DP -6C

With a band also developing over and off the coast of NE France, east sussex, kent etc might get some snow from that band alone.  Maybe all the bands will develop into one.

Or will it fizzle out at the coast?

Roads aren’t too bad in Epsom. Had a bit of freezing rain upon my return to car. Still ever so bitter in that wind.
