MO 1300 update now showing heavy snow for a few hours this afternoon/evening for Watford where previously showed nothing. Is this an indication that track is more east than expected or is it just to be ignored on app/website? Thanks!

Hope it's ok to share some pictures I took whilst out around our little village this morning   I won't bore you with them all, but here's a few of my favourites  

The thaw not very far away now. An'interesting winter indeed...and coming now to conclusion. Its been emotional and at times frustrating. Over and out. See ya-all november...ish.

What an impressive sight that is though - think we'll be glad we missed it when watching the news. That could be flat out dangerous with the wind.

 

 

Never be glad at missing such an epic event! Wish I was there!

Very interesting. Likewise, Cambourne is now progged for Heavy Snow between 4 and 6, with light snow either side. Lets see how East we can get...

Yeah part of me would love to see something like that just to say I was there - but I think that's probably a bit too far for my liking! Looks like it could be absolute havoc under the worst of it.

Would be nice to sit and smoke a fat one and drink some coffee while looking out of the window at it though :D

 

Edit: A House window, not a car one. Sod being out about driving in it!

Yeah agreed.

 

Would be lovely to see, but I own a house, and I've a few things that would collapse with a foot plus of snow on it.

Almost "Day After Tomorrow" that.

I think we’ll see a shift of amber warning, that heavy stuff is heading for London, atleast West London. Looks much further East

Looking to me like it's starting to pivot west. Been watching the last few frames over and over, and it definitely seems to be moving the wrong way for us.

Is it just me or are we in the firing line ??? Been snowing here nearly all day and just weighing up if I should head home. 

Touch and go imho. Right on the edge. If it could move just 20 miles east we are right in it. Anyone else agree?

Expectations should be low for almost all on here, at least if you live North of Greater London. The front should start to pivot North Westward and then west ward, before ultimately tracking north east as a far weaker (and occluded) frontal system tomorrow, bringing a few cms here or there. If some subtle factors in wind direction etc change then parts of central and western East Anglia could flirt with the periphery of Emma's pivot, again bringing no more than a few cms in places. Interestingly enough, as I type, light snow has started to descend on Cambridge once again...Expect nothing and some could be surprised. Tonight though I expect will be patchy for us at best. Apologies for being flaky. 

Do not take away though from the incredible sight of the radar. Tonight's snow for the South and SW will be a 2 or 3 times in a lifetime event. Probably the only time you'll hear forecasts for lowland England in meters!

My dad lives in Bude, Cornwall, just texted me to say it’s just started snowing. I think he’s in for a whole heap of the white stuff. Not sure it’s gonna make it this Far East, but frankly, I’m looking forward to it all going now, it’s just solid ice now and that’s no fun.

Trust me I’m in it, almost a blizzard here at the moment.

Anyone else got that Boxing Day feeling? We're now in the cold spell equivalent of cold turkey sandwiches and watching Ben Hur waiting for the in-laws to pee off  :santa-emoji:

I have to say the BBC have been absolutely useless with their forecasts. We was meant to be missing all the snow today but in all honestly it hasn’t stopped. Easy 100mm and counting in strong winds.

Nice imagery, but no. I'm at work, and that doesn't literally, work.
