I really hope this verifies, but it is just one run from one model....I need to keep my distance for now, I can't get sucked in just yet!

Really frustrating for cambridge, this. Too west for 99% of shower activity and too east for frontal systems. Shame to have only got an inch from these epic Synoptics. As ever, NNElies best for us. That said, we've had at least an inch of snow 5 times over 4 months this winter, so can't really complain. Plus who knows what tomorrow and Friday will bring!

OMG the MAD thread is going nuts, looks like the ECM is giving us a surprise. Just one run BUT who knows! It would be amazing to verify and give us ALL a load more snow for the weekend!

Well well well, I am so surprised, the snow starved North Suffolk for once got a good dumping, over 8" and now drifting to feet deep drifts off the fields, really did not expect this, even got off work early.  Lots of fun going for a long drive earlier, hand seemed to keep slipping towards the handbrake for some reason though...

Tomorrow snow potential looking like the most Northerly extent is Milton Keynes possibly Northampton 

In a S’Easterly line through Luton down to the capital. 

Even this is questionable. 

Friday? Who knows... 

south and west of London look to do well...

Wish it would go somewhere else soon. Right nuisance this time of winter. Don't get me wrong I like seeing a nice dump of snow. It is the collateral effects that are a pain.

Would say is it snow blowing up into the radar field ..... but you don't get this over the sea!

Agree, a slow thaw and some strong winds to dry out the ground, due to start lambing around the 10th :sorry:

looking at the  radar  there a big red dot  over felixstowe and its heading  this way could  be interesting  plus as someone else said lots of showers  in the north sea bit like last night bbc weather your get hardly anything ending up with over 6 inches so any thing  could happen to-night!!

Oh dear we got a foot here and drifting. 

 

Station road in Stanhoe and the road from shammer to Burnham Market down beacon hill are not passable, massive drifts. I would think the Docking to Brancaster road will be blocked if the wind gets up overnight

I feel your pain. ! I'm 20 miles west of you in St Neots, and I moan that the showers reach as far as Cambridge then fizzle out, although today we had plenty of heavy showers. Even tonight showers are still forming in the North Sea and heading inland, but all seem to fizzle out now before they get to Cambridge! Lol

Well after I got the right hump yesterday, today has well and truly delivered for most of north London and the southern home counties.

Went for a walk in proper blizzard conditions and a wind that makes your face ache - not experienced cold like that since the mid-90s. 

From having thought this cold spell underwhelming on Monday I'm now rating it on par with 2010.

Crazy scenes in the heart of London everywhere with a good covering! I managed to find drifts over 20cm deep, monstrous icicles, this is turning into something I’ll never forget.

Yes the common road from Staithe is blocked. Not sure about Docking to Brancaster road.
