Heavier snow falling here now, but the wind has picked up and the snow is blowing rather than settling on the existing cover.

Whoever was talking about Heathrow, there is heavier snow about to move into the area and that will very likely trigger some delays I'dhave thought.

Anyway as I expected, back side of the front intensified as it hit land.

I'm probably going to have another 60-90 mins of light, then moderate snow before it finally all clears to the north after nearly 36hrs of trying to push north. Probably another 1-2cms for me in that time.

Let's hope you're wrong and that it is moderate/heavy and lasts another 3 hours - would be a very nice way for this freezing spell to finish.

At the Heathrow waiting to get on my flight but not the one I booked originally. The lady at check in said that the plane may need de-icing - it would be amazing to see that happen! No windows where I am - anyone near Heathrow - is there any snow nearby? 

The OAT at LHR is -1 deg. C in light rain and snow. If there is any freezing or frozen precipitation on your aircraft (hard to imagine there won't be under those conditions) it will need de-/anti-icing prior to departure...

Yeah it would be, but personally considering how some people have fared just 20-30 miles east of here, I'm pretty content with the snow that is on the ground already, so anything more now is kind of a bonus really!
