I can remember once nearly fainting after thunder snow ... I was convinced a tornado was coming (I’d just watched twister and realised what I thought was snow, but later realised was hail, preceded a tornado... I think near the flying cow scene)

Lol.

It's falling steadily in Burgess Hill now. My son is wishing hard for a snow day tomorrow .... I think we both are!

have good view from loft ( crows nest ). Can see past Dartford Crossing into Canary Wharf and sky looks clear to the West. Looking North East towards Canvey it looks foggy so could be a sign of incoming shower.  East looks cloudy but can see broken cloud towards Medway.

The "Fog"  is a shower. Wind has got up too. 4 on SM Scale.

Well my pasta and meatballs, were gorgeous, eat your heart out, Gino D'Acampo!!

Although. I still feel with a NE flow, conditions will be more favourable, for a mid-Kent >E.Sussex streamer to form,850 temps of -13c/-14c, flowing over the southern N.Sea and sea temps of around +7c, just off the Suffolk coast, may give snow showers, a bit more oompn, than normal to make it down to SE London/NW Kent, before the air dries out too much, having travelled, the length of Suffolk and Essex, to get to this area.

Still would expect more action, over mid-Kent though, with showers having a longer sea track.

Couldn't understand, when I was younger, why BBC graphics, covered the whole of SE England, with heavy snow showers but in Bromley, NW Kent, we had mostly clear skies, while off to the east, over the Medway towns I could see a never ending chain of dark grey skies, were moving forever south-westwards! After being on the internet and this site, I now know why!! The flow was from the NE!!:wallbash:

Regards,

Tom

I used to think the same thing lol..

I've learned a lot since joining netweather:good:
