And here we go again, home in Blackboys and it's just started up heavy again. Cracking stuff.

 

Go on then - simply can't help re-posting this from me last Saturday. I'll take my punt on Horley at this stage, too, given that the stars are out!

Well I’m here in Horley/Gatwick, which isn’t the best topographically, tending to be shielded somewhat by the South Downs. I’m ‘expecting’ between 2-5cms by Weds here in Horley, using local knowledge as a guide, but with areas south and east of here and not far away (somewhere like Uckfield for example) to fare a bit better, and deeper into East Sussex better still. The high risk potential frontal event progged for Friday better for here.

I may have gone mad from staring at the radar all day but have things turned a little more easterly now?

Winds are beginning to back more Easterly, out over the far East of Kent. Still not there yet though.

All I want is a slight cover of snow, but the showers die a death way before they reach here.

I’m glad to see you guys in Essex, Kent and Sussex getting in on the action though.

Same...that heavy blob over Canterbury/Ashford way is only 15'ish miles from us!

Keep the photos coming from the snowy places! 

Im looking at motorway webcams and on speed dial to saltwood it seems so odd.

Maybe the snow follows me as ive moved from Lyminge to ashford

 

Feel very lucky and so excites for my 2 yr old twins to see it all tomorrow

 

Magic memories like i made as a child.

We have about 2cm in Shoreham-by-Sea too, wishing you snow too in Worthing!

If it continues like it is here until tomorrow (which it won't) we'll be well and truly buried.

Seems to be a bit of a lull in the showers now; clouds breaking up. Anyone know why there aren't any more showers following on behind the ones just gone? I'm in Medway.

As someone who knows a thing or two about radar, the beams generally look "up" or at least on the horizontal, not down at the ground. So they only see what is falling in the air, and not what is actually hitting the ground. I regularly see people on these forums wondering why a blob is over them on the radar but they're not seeing anything at ground level - this is why.

The most frustrating location of the winter goes to MY LOCATION! Keep seeing all the showers miss me by a couple of miles I even missed the slight covering that the other side of town got! I've had enough of clippers time for a Thames streamer for Once since 2010!!

Looking like a wind shift towards ENE now and radar dying a bit in North Sea/Estuary. Perhaps a lull before convection restores later
