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:

I doubt you're alone, but out here further West these are our better chances of fairly decent snowfalls, as the winds just haven't been right for some of us. 

However, I have enjoyed this Easterly myself, it's been fascinating stuff!

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

Little monster is almost three! And the proud owner of his very own sledge.

Ventured out to asda and wow that wind chill, used the bag for life as a wind shield on the way there. Quite the horizontal shower, looks like another is heading my way.

Wow great end to daylight hours with another blizzard like shower lasting about 30-45 minutes ended up in a bit of streamer for a while and other 1-2cm’s from that! All eyes to the NE of the Suffolk coast as some more showers have bubbled up. As Jo just mentioned this is far from over today....

Personally, no, seeing how we are potentially looking at a huge amount of snow from that system. :laugh:

And if its the end, I'd rather it go out with a BANG!  :D

There is a good build-up of shower activity in the North Sea which is pushing through our region now. Wind has really picked up too.

Flow now seems to be more ENE and more showers popping up in the North Sea.

It very much looks like these showers are going to continue for some time. There is a conveyor belt of snow moving in from the ENE.

EDIT: I forgot to say, moderate snow here with a brisk wind. Another couple of cm for sure to come.

RE-EDIT: HEAVY snow here now, with the wind causing the snow to drift. A nightmare rush hour out there!!

They should go back to Easterly quite quickly, this looks like the final tiny wave in the flow.

In the middle of a beautiful windy shower now in SWF, whiteout and the lovely powdery stuff being blown around just to add that little extra.

There seems to a rather huge set of merged showers mobbing up just off the Suffolk coast and headed for our region – so merged are they that they present more as an organised band even though they are in fact a series of showers bleeding into one another.

After a couple of hours respite, there seems to be more incoming. And the bin men didn’t make it down my road today, mind you neither did many cars :rofl:

It looks so nice out, I think I might take a wee mosey along to Tesco and buy myself a celebratory bottle of vodka? I'm sure my jeans will have dried by now!:santa-emoji:
