    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

    I don’t believe it. I have 3-4” icicles hanging from the street lamp! Not seen an icicle in yonks!

    Decent covering in Haywards Heath now, shows that when you get a direct hit from a shower it can turn things white pretty quickly. Hoping for lots more direct hits over the next 12+ hours!

    No chance haha.

    5-10cm perhaps if things pick up overnight. Which will do just fine.

    Honestly I see it a little bit.

    1 hour = 1inch MO have 6 hours of Heavy snow with a few more of light through the night. 6 inches = 15cm.

    We shall see.

    I appreciate there's still a fair bit of snow potential over the next 2-3 days, and some will see more than others.. but it just shows how embarrassing those comparisons were with 1987/1991.

    The low 850's are comparable though. So why is that embarrassing? And that is all that can be compared from way out. Whether any instability can give comparable snow is far more difficult to predict. Get the cold in first and all of that.....

    Based on the current setup, not expecting anything more than a dusting for my area tonight/tomorrow. A very clear streamer developed missing out my area completely, as expected. Thursday does bring some interest though with the BBC staying firm on a potential blizzard.

    Best of luck to all of you on the Essex coast and Kent, looks like a fun night. Some of the showers heading your way are really packing a punch with sizeable totals over parts of the Suffolk coast along with reports of thunder and lightning, and the convection potential actually increases further tomorrow.

    Oh come now please. How can most get excited when a few passing heavy snow showers that  acculimate to zilch during daylight hours be classed as the ‘Beast from the east’ I’d prefer ‘The nat from the north west’ at least that gave us a frost.

    Most if not all here are looking for lying snowfall not fleeting showers that melt in a few secs.

    Not so great to see zero convection looking east from the Estuary

    Eerie feel not a sound out there, where has the beast gone or is it purring asleep atm

    BBC forcast just now shows band of snow hitting Worthing [and north east of it for a long way] later tonight. Worthing could also cop it on Weds as snow hits the south coast from the east.

    Problem is that some of us have lying snow. 3cm that hasn't dripped away and that will still be there tomorrow morning is something that hasn't happened in a long time.

    Snowing gently north of Steyning [west north west of Brighton]. Should get to Worthing and/or west of worthing. 

    Well, it's arrived in Lancing! After about an hour of very light powdery grains, it's now snowing properly. Cars and road covered already.

    Big area over Tumbridge Wells has definitely changed shape and direction in the last 15 mins. Reckon Reigate, Dorking and Surrey Hills are now in the firing line...

    That would be good but the wind is from the NE in Reigate at the moment so I don't think it would  hit us. Just got a few flakes at the moment.

    Well it wont get here then, what wind there is and my Anemometer is showing 2mph is from the ENE, Surely the echoes up the coast are going to go towards Chelmsford and Greater London ?
