The band of snow appears to be fragmenting to the south of London, with an obvious clearance along the south coast. Apart from a few heavier bursts, I can’t see much more for this region today. It looks as though the front has made progress north a little faster than expected.

I should go and stand under it without my hat...

:rofl:Yes that sounds like it could be fun!:D

 

Still snowing moderately, looks lovely blowing in the wind and no melt going on or wetness around.

Defo will be snow drinks here tonight as we say goodbye to the last of our snow fun and games. In fact its a shame we are not all a bit closer in the SE threads, we could have all met up for sledging, then snow drinks, and finished off the night with a snow curry....Yum! I feel like I have spent this last week somewhere on the Alps.:yahoo::laugh:

Got another direct hit here in TN5 from some of the best stuff. Snowed for the last three hours, at times heavily. All the lanes are fully white and fluffy again, and an inch or two added to the previous total, as hoped/expected. Looks like easing off soon now.

Not a major event, but lovely nonetheless.

A bit of a stressful journey home, but we made it! The freezing rain transitioned to snow at about 13:00, and has been light-moderate since then. I’d say we have a top up of about 1.5cm?

Started the day just above freezing here and after lunch thin powder snow started, but it has now turned into big fat snowflakes falling heavily. Hopefully this will be the last of it - I'm fed up with cold now!

Looking at NW radar the band keeps on coming out of Northern France(just by Lille) and track is North Westwards approximately.Looking at current speed i have at least another hour of moderate snow,maybe more so should have a good accumulation when it stops.Nice way to sign off this cold spell.

Looks like Bromley here isn’t doing so badly after all it looks about 0.5cm in the last hour - can’t be sure how much longer we have looking at the radar

Paths are lethal where snow has blown off in the wind, sheet ice on them from this mornings  freezing rain, saw one chap fall over in the park, though now ice is being covered by snow
