Recommended Posts

Thanks to both @moogyboobles and @mpkio2 for the wonderful pictures. My kitten broke my camera on my phone, otherwise I would have tried to get some pics up too. Not as good though I'm sure! ;)

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

bank that, hope that is right

I really would not be surprised to see more unforecast snow.  We had a lot last night when it was supposed to snow in the early hours (which it also did) but it was snowing on/off from about 7pm giving a good inch or so before I went to bed and we had 5" or so this morning.

It has also snowed most of the day and it's now getting very black again so hopefully we'll see some more tonight whether it's expected or not.  Hopefully it won't be too bad as need to get the car to the garage for repairs tomorrow and can't skip it as the MOT is due soon too.....

While not a guarantee, it keeps us in the game, and maybe improves the outlook for us tomorrow.

Yes. It would be fantastic to go out with a bang... Whatever happens from now on we will remember this period of weather for a long time to come.

Haha, you and me both.:good:

As a rule of thumb, I always take the Mett Office warnings as a "guide" as in any area near the edge of the warning zone could easily be in the firing line.

Just look at today's snowfall in the capital that was mostly out of the Amber zone that covered the South-East got, yet London received....

a friend of mine posted this about the above image:

"The model itself is based on the 'Hirlam' output, which is one of the best hi-res models available. As far as I am aware, it updates every 6 hours on the Met site, usually around 4pm, 10pm 4am & so on."

Still -5C...and interestingly (and according to the local weather station) the wind has now backed into the ENE!:santa-emoji: 

PS: More snow has arrived!:yahoo:

Absolutely  chucking it down again here, and windy too, OH and the small cleared the path to the garage earlier and it's covered again.

Don't think this is over for today somehow!

How time flies, JO: in my mind's eye Small is only about six-months' old!:D

I glorious end to the day with clear blue wintry skies. I will not go outside as frankly -5C before sunset is completely nuts. Depending on wind I think the temperature could get close to -10C in sheltered spots. Fridgid!!!

Some fantastic pictures around! Nothing to write about here but good to see most parts of the SE getting some sort of snow! Something that's picked up is the strength of the wind, to the point where I've had to tie a smaller tree in the garden to the one next to it as it looks like it could go at any minute.

HIRLAM looks fantastic for tomorrow but boy are the charts and forecasts all over the place - BBC and Meto have snow plastered all over the place, whereas the charts tend to be a bit of a mixed bag.

From Chris Fawkes on Twitter: "In reply to a few Qs, just my thoughts. I like further east extent of heavier #snow Thursday. I think Greater London could see 5-7cm tomorrow afternoon with blizzards (2-3") given sensitive transport I wouldn't be surprised to see amber for tomorrow."

See me and Chris both think alike. :laugh:

IMO, anything could happen and it just takes the low pressure to come up a little eastwards and our region is in business.:)

These sorts of set-ups are unpredictable and surprises can crop up out of the blue.

We'll just have to wait and see...:good:

Positively balmy at Watford with the temp as high as -3.4C as I type. Still getting a few flurries from time to time  :)

Am I the only one who'd rather Thursday's & Friday's snow events don't happen? After all, why look forward to the demise of what's been a quite productive spell of easterlies?:unknw:
