    Something coming down from sky but don’t what exactly it is ??? it hurts when it hits your face with wind, but not quite wet, I guess it’s sleet ? Brighton.

    If it feels like a marble, it might be Freezing Rain

    That’s it I’ve had enough now this freezing rain is horrible and I need to get to my local shop. Just tried to go out and looked like bambi on ice!!! Oh and I’ve run out of beer???

    I'm phoning the military now to get you to the shop, running out of beer is no joke, getting serious now !

    Some light freezing drizzle here now, car windows glazed over. Not seen that for many years. -1C currently, could squeeze a 3rd ice day, pretty remarkable for early March!

    Same :D

    So it's either the shops later or the pub, both could be tricky. I should also be travelling over to my Parents to get them s few bits but luckily they was warned last week and stocked up.

    Pub seems best bet... I have trouble even In the summer walking back from pub....:hi:

    That doesn’t seem as impressive as I thought. Has it slightly dissipated??? I’ve just seen that massive blob over northern France is that the piece headin at us????

    Plenty of it, what will happen when it reaches our locations I really couldn't give a certain answer but it'll be Wintry for many, Perhaps more sleet/rain on the South Coasts as you'll have the " milder" air behind it pushing up

    Netweather radar showing darker echoes approaching Hythe, Folkestone, Lydd areas west to Brighton now. Should intensifiy whatever is falling. Radar shows it as Snow.

    Light snow now in Mid Sussex. Despite it being very light, it's instantly settling on all surfaces including the road so temps must still be well down.

    There's "something" falling out of the sky with a few flakes mixed in...not really sure what it is...ice snizzle ??

    Like grains of sugar but heavier ...very odd
