    Snow eased off now but hope it will pick up intensity again soon.I think for NW Kent our best chance of accumulated snow is between now and 7pm.After that i feel that will be the beginning of the end of this cold spell.With my stato hat on the temp has remained below zero here from 3pm on Tuesday until now(currently -1.1).That is 69hrs and would think it would stay below zero for another 3-6 hours.Quite amazing for this time of year and that we are only about 300ft asl.

    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

    Snow now building to the north of here, so I still think the sweet spot will be to the north of London for the most prolonged and heavy snowfall.

    Predictions for how long this will last over the SE?

    seems like it comes to an end around 3pm. I don't see anything else is coming up from France after that.

    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...

    Thanks for the info - the snow is coming down (well sideways) here right now. Interested to see them de-ice it.

    What's the time frame Steve for you and me here in Boxley? How long you think we'll have this for? Debating if I can make it out later this afternoon or not.

    Snow here has got heavier but the dew points have also risen at the same time...roads are now clear and wet as are car roofs.

    Still its nice to see snow falling from the sky and have snow on the ground for a 5th day in a row
