The problem is that we have quite a slack flow, we need a stronger flow to aid the showers moving inland.

With the sunshine gaining strength snow showers should move further inland during the day. 

These setups almost always deliver to coastal counties of Eastern England. Showers generally ease in intensity as they move inland as there is no moisture at ground level to absorb into the atmosphere. Inland will do better at the end of the week with the low pressure and more organised snowfall.

Lots of large anvils shooting up in the North Sea at present. Bodes well for later!!!

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.

Cannot actually believe some of the comments this morning. You know you aren’t guaranteed any kind of weather, well, ever, right? 

We are in day 2 of an unusually cold spell, and fine, if you think this morning is regular winter after you must have a better set of thermals on than me, but it’s cold. Very cold, and be coldest day will be tomorrow by the looks of current info. Yes it’s irritating that the trains aren’t running - I am right in the thick of this, squashed into one as I type and an hour late for work,  but if people look beyond the end of their noses they would understand that temperatures as cold as this DO affect the overhead cables and rails - you don’t need snow for a train to break down.

Give he moaning a rest eh? This isn’t how I remember the regionals at all :cray:

 

 

Thing is, it's not particularly cold this morning, definitely not as cold as yesterday and there is zero wind compared with yesterday as well.

Well uts -6 outside here..very bitter. And people are right. More showers..beefy ones are developing. Its very hit and miss which we knew it would be. Its not a single front carrying lots of snow. 

I havent seen the latest forcast but i suspect itll be more of the same tbh. Still exceptional for the end of feb

My weather station is currently reading -3.4c 

In my book that’s cold but we will have to agree to disagree. ??‍♀️

This morning is beautiful, the best cold we've had in this part of Norfolk since I moved here by far! Dropped to -7.5c overnight and we have an even covering of 3-4cm of snow on everything with snow showers still topping up the footprints every 10-30 minutes to keep it looking good :D Very happy!

-8C at 08:00 in our region on 27th February is very cold. What are you expecting -50C?

So what enabled 1991 to see such widespread snow well inland?

I think everyone's best bet is the low pressure moving up later in the week. Apart from coastal areas, most inland places (me included) will only get some decaying snow showers moving through quickly and not amounting to much. At the moment (despite uppers being around -12) it doesn't feel desperately cold, but I think tomorrow and Thursday will feel raw with the biting wind setting in.

Lol well if I squint it looks like we've had a cm...You have to say if thu and fri don't look like delivering now this has been an abject flop for most of us. 

Way it goes I know, but this week is now going to struggle to be the best event of the last three months for me, let alone the last ten years! Disappointing given the options on the table last week and the rarity of Easterlies nowadays. 

Was hoping to see at least something by now but looks like possibly a few showers today and then dry again. If yesterday is anything to go by that will melt sharpish. 

Cold can do one now, haven't read the MOD yet but presuming if there's no blizzard expected for here then the warm air is being held off for now.

Bloody weather eh?

Hello Number 23 Come in Please your time is up!

On a serious note as far as Springfield and probably the rest of the Chelmsford area is concerned we enjoyed a much better snow event before Christmas. We just have a thin veneer of snow on our back lawn. Indeed the frost seems thicker than the snow.

As far as Thursday onwards is concerned there is much debate on the MAD thread, one  moment we are going to see snowed in the next there is much gnashing of teeth and reaching for the anti-depressants. We will just have to be patient to see how it all pans out as it is all so very uncertain. It could be we enjoy a bit if luck for one. Time will tell.

Kind Regards

Dave

Longevity of the easterly cold spell. We are a little over 24 hours into this one which explains why some aren't able to build an igloo in there garden just yet. Reports of snowfall across our region will increase as the week progresses. It's what happens as cold spells take a grip and precipitation varies in location hour by hour, day by day.

Anyway, going to take a walk up Oulton Broad later as I suspect will start freezing over with the incredibly low dew points.

Sea freezing over!!

Thursday the impact is further south west...but our region still in disruptive zone..moreso(west of region)..

Friday there is back band resurge of emma...then the whole region look to face blizzard condition as isobars tighten-and the LPS intensifies!!!

And overheads are more than amicable for all precip-as snow!!!.

Into saturday perhaps -less cold!!

What’s the snow depth indications right now

Beautifully cold this morning in Harefield -5 when I took the dog out according to the thermometer very nice! Anything that comes is going to be fun over the next 48hrs or so but I am enjoying the cold weather and the beauty it brings regardless. Rather this, than cold, dark, cloudy and rainy! :D

As far as convective activity is concerned for us in EA/SE - the next 24-30 hours is the 'final' window before drier air gets in towards the end of tomorrow. Expect some big convection until then -hopefully for most of EA, however once this passes - if you've got no snow by 6pm tomorrow then I'm afraid the games over until the next organised system arrives Friday night...
