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. 

 

 

Given up with their graphics.

 

Cloud looks like snow & snow looks like cloud. Pftb.

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.

I think today must have been much colder because none of the snow has melted during today, its as deep this afternoon as it was first thing this morning with n new snowfalls.

I think it's going to miss our area completely, maybe a few flakes for the far west of the region. It's a shame I would to experience something like that but oh well, Mother Nature will do what she pleases.

Parts of beds and bucks are in the game imho. Its def further east than predicted. If you look at sat24 its moving very slowly NNE but I may have it very wrong.

Anther death and another 19 vehicle crash up north. I love the snow but i'm well aware of the issues that come with it, so i'm worried about these in the south west tonight.

This cold spell won't be the longest, but it has been one of the coldest I can remember. Plus some really good snowfall.

Now that we are losing the really cold uppers, I'd be happy enough to see some Spring warmth appear over the next week or two. Moving forward, even if it stays "cold" with uppers of -4c/-5c, that won't really be good enough for snow at this time of year so all we'd get is cold rain/sleet or very marginal events. Not something I think many of us would want.

Our region should be looking at the area of snow south east of the main band...

With these warming uppers could that be rain for this region

'Warming' is to be taken with a pinch of salt I think. Warm compared to the very low temp uppers we've had but not warm enough for rain...just yet...

Anyone else got that Boxing Day feeling

Hello number23,

For a minute I thought you meant Boxing Day 1962.

Kind Regards

Dave

The energy of the system seems to be intensifying PPN north of London. :)

One of my neighbours has been snow ploughing since 6am, a lot of people have to use B and minors roads round here. As fast as he clears it and moves on he's back at square one about 2hrs later as more drifts off the fields.

I wouldn’t want to be near the red zone, once that thaws flooding could become an issue, also with added rainfall.

Hey guys.

A quieter day here in Central London thus far.

Had a further 1-2cm overnight and into the morning.:)

Snow flurry has started from some of the PPN coming up from Storm Emma. :D

Vey cold and windchill is still brutal! :cold:

Indeed, the whole system on it's eastern flank is growing, just look towards France.

NW radar still shows snow over almost the whole of the UK - it must be really struggling cos I can confirm over 24hrs without any further snow...

The system looks to have made it to London. Just. Thought It would turn away just short leaving us with not as much. However just started snowing in north London and hopefully should continue for a while.
