Do you think we will  get anything around our parts when the wind veers to the NE? 

Not much in our part of London sadly.

 

Although MetOffice saying heavy snow this afternoon - can't quite see it my self.

The first proper easterly for years and it looks like it's not going to happen here (Saffron Walden). Being too pessimistic? I thought this is what we needed to get the winters of the 80s back with 6" thick ice on the pond and deep snow. Why is this still not the right conditions?

you should catch something eventually, if Norwich has managed a dusting then so can you!

I do hope so! Otherwise I will look a bit of an idiot. 😬

Well it huffed and puffed and now brilliant sunshine. 

I'm slightly too far north for the big action but still expect a cm or two from today. 

is north west London a decent place?

Looking at the radar it seems much heavier snow showers are now developing across N Norfolk.

Well it's a decent start considering more widespread showers aren't expected until tomorrow into Wednesday when instability peaks!

I hope so, we deserve some meaningful snow for once!

Heavy snow falling here near Heathrow, blowing about a fair bit and settling!

Suffolk, Essex and down into Greater London seem to have been the best places this morning so far for snow. 

Convection should increase through the day and tonight with all parts seeing at least something

You're too far N to get in on the real heavy stuff over the next day or two, but you're in with a shout of some showers pushing in I'd say.

Hi teits.  Do you think the showers will push further south and west,  with a wash streamer setting up. So far in huntingdon the snow shield is holding firm. Would be nice for your expertise in this thread.

Here's this morning's Met Office Yellow Warning for our Region. Looks and sounds very promising for most of our area.

Between 14:00 Mon 26th and 23:55 Mon 26th

Snow showers, already affecting eastern parts of England early on Monday, are expected to become more persistent and more widespread through Monday afternoon and evening. There is the potential for travel delays on roads, stranding of some vehicles and passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected.

Yep, about a cm on my garden table. Clear skies for the next hour or so I think,

From the radar looks like that rash of showers which just pushed through are going to be followed by a more localised period of shower activity for at least the next hour or two.

Still, if we cop a few more like that over the course of today I'd guess an inch or so by close of business today. Met warnings for my neck of the woods look to be about right for accumulations at this early stage.

It's annoying for our neck of the woods I know (St Albans here!) but showers are becoming more widespread as the day goes on and I wouldn't pin your hopes just on the warnings.

Plus, we are in the warnings tomorrow when showers will be affecting almost anywhere! :)

I moved here from Snorbans a couple of years ago. Know only too well the snow shield! But Luton did quite well back in Dec to be fair!
