Officially signing off from my Perch by the window. Have a great year -  Enjoy it with your Families- Current pic - 4.5 inches    my favourite pic - Cheers All

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

Some photos from the last couple of days. Near Bewl Water in East Sussex.

Coating of ice on my car windscreen from freezing drizzle falling most the morning here near Croydon, glad I don't need to drive anywhere today

Work has just been informed to send people home early. Train operating companies (Southern, Thames link etc..) warning of disruption and early closure due to freezing rain (it's freezing the point systems)

Ashford and Canterbury should see Snow in next 15 minutes. 

Fingers cross not more freezing rains. At the moment it’s freezing drizzle constantly adding to the ice layer.

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

Can confirm grains of sugar here too ? Folkestone

Proper raining now, and many other SE locations, temps still -1 to -2C, not good, Met O yellow warning suffice? Hmmm ....

Have just seen this on Southeastern's Twitter feed: 

SERVICE UPDATE 12:00 ⚠️ Do not attempt to travel across East Kent at the moment, a large amount of ice has built up affecting the power supply and we cannot run trains between Swanley & Ramsgate, Ashford & Ramsgate via Dover or Canterbury and Otford to Ashford #uksnow

Well that was fun.... had a decent snow flurry about 15 minutes ago, heaviest snow fall of the week, even began to settle. 

Gone now!

Hope that is a sign on things to come for this afternoon! 

Though looking at the radar, this lot of rain/snow is keeping with the theme of the week, worthing on the very edge!

I am a big cold weather fan....but its so cold, im starting to look forward to the slightly warmer weather at the weekend!

Absolutely, a few days is nice, a bit of chaos and disruption, but it is nice just being able to do the usual routine again.
