    Those north of London are lucky under that heavier and continuous band of snow. For the rest of us, mainly light and patchy snow which will continue to fragment.

    Was nice to see a proper ‘beast from the east’.

    Please pay us a visit again next Winter, but don’t feel you have to leave so quickly!

    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

    Somethings never change.. Like going back in time :-) 

    It is lovely coming back to our reliably snowy corner... and slipping into old radar watching routines... Remembered today that we got snowed in in 2005 on exactly the same day, March 2nd, by that surprise snow event. Again we hit the jackpot and ended with 7 inches and I didn't make it to school in Tonbridge for two days (was in last year at the time).

    Problem was that there was next to nothing in Tonbridge (20 mins drive away), so my explanations were met with some raised eyebrows a couple of days later...

    Don't know if you saw the photos I posted last night. If not, here are a couple again, taken earlier this week:

    Very poor fall here in Kent are we going to get some proper stuff today ??

    Had the same light flurries in Southend....it seems to break up around this area, and then intensify again!

    Still, we've had well over a foot of snow fall throughout the week, and still have 3-4in laying, so we've done fairly well I reckon!!!

    Looks like freezing rain just approaching the coast from the south according to the radar... loads of green !

    Still snow here although I think it will stop soon. If only the front would stall right now.

    Snow easing now - not expecting much more - added 2cm to the existing patchy 2cm cover (4cm in total).  Not too bad but feel that we could have done a little better given the synoptics.

    Anyway, onwards and upwards towards winter 18/19 (will that be the one to deliver big?)

    Nice moderate snow now on the Hampshire/Surrey border - probably had 3cm from this one so far. If any of those nearby want a reminder of this snowy period in the days/weeks to come, then get yourselves to Odiham and take the road to Alton. There are huge drifts (4-5ft) at the Odiham end. This road was blocked earlier today.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
