I’m off Downhall Rd, Hambro end. Keeping fingers crossed 🤞

Tell me you are ok, I'm going to worry now.  That's a scary road.  Stay indoors (wags imaginary fingers)

Yh

The Fax chart Nick F posted in the other thread surely cheers everyone up in here tonight. 

Streamers galore, at least 3 of them

Wash streamer which is currently under way and one running down the coast of Suffolk and Essex an into the Thames clearly marked as the areas at risk of highest snowfall. 

For my location the wind really needs to remain towards the north east or all that snow will just push into the Midlands and avoid Cambridgeshire.

 

Waiting for the Stevenage Duck Pond Streamer here.

To think I lived in that part of the world for most of my life. Great to see some proper snow falling somewhere. Also my in laws live in south Essex who have also reported quite a bit of snow. Alas I am here in Cambridgeshire hoping for a few flakes in the wind... :rofl:

Glad i stayed up now, but i think the cover of snow we have wont melt overnight and it bodes well if other showers come in the night to make accumulations.

It really did come down, just incredible. We had about 2 inches fall in 20 minutes. Photos to follow.........

I'm trying to upload a video but it's too large sadly..... The lightning was toward Pakefield and Southwold so I think Great Yarmouth may have just missed the worst.

Not a random flake here. All this talk of streamers and thundersnow is making me jealous. Can we have your thoughts and prayers for Braintree?

Just been into the mod thread and the GFs18z is at last heading in the right direction for Thursday nights event. Low further south and east keeping it an all snow event for our region. Also pressure rise in Scandinavia halting the northward shift of the milder air. 12z had the front reaching southern Scotland on Saturday morning. 18z has it much further south👍

Long time lurker but wanted to post a pic of this very dark ominous cloud which has just rolled across the horizon.  

 

Its literally like a wave breaking, white fluff followed by dark yellow and grey.  A thing of beauty! Not sure if the photo has really captured it at all

Thanks Captain

The Twigs are Streamers

Convergence zones strictly-speaking as you of course are aware; I thought I'd mention it for those who may not know.  Unusual to have a Wash Streamer and Thames Streamer concurrently?

Yes very unusual - Seen it in the summer up and down the coasts with Sea Breezes but rare in winter

Calling it a night I think. 

Good luck to all the hardy souls who stay up!

I must admit after seeming like we had a couple of streaers setting up, the convection coming in from the sea has become more scattered and evenly distributed. Clear skies overhead after a couple of hours of thick cloud and on and off light snow. Hopefully convection should pick up as lapse rates improve as the disturbance over the north sea approaches northern England.

Are we more likely to get heavier showers tomorrow and Wednesday or are we at the peak now?

I hope everyone can get a bit of the action. We have a very light dusting here
