Officially signing off from my Perch by the window. Have a great year -  Enjoy it with your Families- Current pic - 4.5 inches    my favourite pic - Cheers All

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

Just popped in to wish my southeast friends lots of snow, the radar looks very active so you should do well and that includes the coming days!..you deserve this

Unless anything’s changed the met office were always going for 2am for it to really kick in. This evening is just a bonus

Met seem pretty confident of the more organised bands of ppn coming off the North Sea with ENE winds from 2am given the amber warning, I’d expect the showers to start pepping up again closer we get to midnight

Just speaking from observation. I hope they are correct. 

Think the Amber starts from 2am so am guessing they are expecting an uptick in Convection when the Uppers are at the Maximum of -15c and 500mb heights lowest in the early hours.

But the good old saying holds true

The weather will do what the weather will do

The Fax charts for tonight and the shift in wind direction in the outer reaches of the Thames would suggest that things are still very much game on for North Kent, Essex, London, Surrey.... Let's see what tonight brings.

Yep it most certainly will. I've spent too many years on this forum to get upset when it doesn't pan out. Well just about...

As annoying as the stop start thing is, I must say I have been very impressed with the intensitiy of these showers and the size of the flakes; we've had some very heavy bursts so far. Looks like a brief lull in the stream of showers at the moment, but lots more building...and of course the Amber warning hasn't even started yet! It's well and truly game on! :yahoo:

 

Edit - Forgot to say, in terms of depth I'd say we have close to 2cm at the moment.

latest 18z ICON model showers blizzards for us Friday 20cm plus over wide area staying cold with chance of another to follow later in weekend. however would take that with huge pinch of salt as won't know where low is going till about 24hours before and subject to change. but we are looking better than what was showing last night.
