I remember March 2005. I’d just started seeing my now wife then and we both skived off work and watched as 9 inches fell through out the day. It was then she realised she was with a weather fanatic. She still married me so it worked out ok

This spell has been fantastic. But for me nothing will ever come close to 1987. That’s the holy grail in my eyes. Living up near blue bell hill even back then we were in the firing line and ended up with 2.5 feet of snow. I was a young lad and thought that was fairly normal, especially as 4 years later we had another amazing snowfall. 😂little did I realise the pain of snowless winters thereafter. Here’s some classic pics from around Medway in 1987

Agree with you totally... I lived  by the crematorium.. Unbelievable... Then the following October the wind  nearly blue the bell clean off the hill.. Another one in a life time event..powerlines flipping about In the road.. House caught alight.. Surge up through fuse box...best and worst times. But loved the chaos of it all :-)

It’s been emotional guys. Time to head back to the mad thread. Reckon we can squeeze one more cold snap out of this winter.

It’s died back a little now. Google suggests we’re gonna have ‘light freezing rain’ for a couple of hours 🤔

would love that - along with one big final dump - perhaps 2 foot would be sufficient 😄

Well looks like everyone is leaving but I'm going to hang on another hour and watch this band just reaching the channel. Understand that it's supposed to be rain but with sub 0 temps and -3 dew point. It surely is marginal especially inline and at height.

Knew I was right here! Heavy snow here north of Portsmouth all the roads white again.

Just had the heaviest snow shower here too. I thought it was going to be sleet or rain, seems elevation is helping us out. I wonder if that lot in the to the SW is headed this way.

latest GFS snow south east 6pm Thursday !

I did say earlier people were believing this spell was over too early. Radar shows snow coming back into south London in about 30minutes and GFS looks better for midweek onwards. would be not surprised if tomorrow is colder than expected as the low tonight looks further east so will pull in more of a continental feed, slight thaw start of week before going cold again next weekend.

Again SE London looks slightly too east at the moment for any last snow like you in Surrey ☹️ Maybe wouldn’t even fall as snow anyway

Yes, here in Horley too. Not sure what that is! Don’t want it to melt any of the snow on the ground though, so it needs to snow or do one!

Ah greetings!

looks like it’s swirling round towards us. The main ‘blob’ is on something of a northerly track but the rotation is pulling showers round to the east of it
