East Anglia and North London weather discussion (25/02/2018) onward

Recommended Posts

The shower broke up.. That seems to be it for today. It will be interesting to see how low the temperature gets here overnight.

Wonder who wins the snow sweet spot in this thread come Fri night...my guess would be Lowestoft...

For this thread, I'd expect areas up near King's Lynn might have done better than us...?

Anywho, Monday's temperature-predictions are a tad concerning; they're going up and down faster than Katie Price's draws!:shok:

I doubt very much that that is the end of the ppn for today. The North Sea is still being very productive, with a good stream of shower activity (albeit lighter) heading towards NW London. Still more top-up's to come.

EDIT: Lovely pictures Moogyboobles!

I don't understand why there are lots of showers to the North and South but next to none over Norfolk? Are we likely to get more showers later?

It's like there's a massive shield diverting the showers and leaving us in the sun

Brancaster and best sledge ever ; )

An extraordinary day less perhaps for the snow but for the temperature.

It never got above -2.8c here in lowland East London and there's still a bitter wind blowing if you do catch it.

I make that the coldest day for a good number of years (certainly since 2013 if not well before) and for that coldest day to happen on the last day of February rather than say late December or early January makes it doubly remarkable.

Had this synoptic set up occurred on December 28th rather than January 28th we'd probably not have got the volume of snow but the temperatures would have been incredibly low and it makes you wonder if some of the brutal frosts of olden times came out of synoptics such as those we are experiencing.

Had a little walk by the Crouch about 7.30 am.

Wind picking up here now and the odd flurry now and then. Almost went for sledge up the hill but the wind chill put me off and a cup of tea won me over.
Nothing can be built from this quiet powdery snow. The lack of underfoot crunch was novel!

Hello all!

OK. I'm real sorry but I'm about to RAMP hard! :)

The "Beast from the East" has truly and fully awakened in Central London!

2nd February 2009, 18th December 2010, 25th January 2013 and now adding 28th February 2018 to the list of best snowfall days Central London has gotten (In my lifetime!) :D

Went out and enjoyed the snowfall in Regents Park, snow as the eye could see with blue sky and the sun shining down....

And then....snowmageddon occurred giving heavy snowfall, a -15c windchill with snow blowing right into my face!!! Blizzard, whiteout conditions! :shok::shok::cold::cold:

It was EPIC!!!!!!! :D

It's been great hasn't it?

As far as the next couple of days go, I think that we will still see a fair amount of shower activity coming off the North Sea overnight tonight, but the current track of Storm Emma seems to be going slightly too far West for us to be getting too much ppn from it on Thursday into Friday. The further West you are, the more likely you will see heavier snow, but things can and will change. It is very hard to forecast the track of storms, so it will be a case of nowcasting.

Beyond that, the temps look like they will rise from Saturday onwards, so the ppn could easily turn to rain, especially on the Southern edge.

Thank you @Bricriu and @Sno' problem it's been so long I've seen ice on the Crouch.
It's a shame I didn't quite get myself together and out the door fast enough to catch the heavier snowfall. But then it's a miracle I was out, snow is one of the few things that will get me up early!

Wind is really drifting the snow off the fields, some of the local single track roads running North to South are now impassable.

Drifting could be the real issue overnight for some of the villages.

Just popped into the South West thread and it seems the Hirlam has everything for tomorrow shifted a bit further east.

Hirlam seems to be fairly accurate from what i've heard. Please let this shift more east!

just looking out it seems to have clouded right over again, and the radar seems to have some more organised showers blowing in.

After last night's last minute warning when we weren't forecast that much of note, and then quite a big fall during the early hours,  I must say I'm keeping a very open mind about the next few days, just a minor correction and we could end up with an awful lot of snow.

They're not wrong...

Southern parts of East Angelia and most of London are in for a dumping, potentially that is. :)

The Mett Office does have London/Home Counties and parts of East Angelia under a Yellow warning for tomorrow and Friday aswell
