Yes firming up now.

Tonight looks good indeed....

Good advection flagging.

And plenty of big snow falls continue to be a distinct possibility right-through the week.

Cannot understand the downbeat nature of some tbf...

We are just getting going here!!!!

Snowing for a solid 45 minutes or longer here now, 100% passed the 5cm mark but too cold to get up and measure :cold:

Cloud cover increasing here - very similar feel to yesterday albeit it a bit later in the day. Some more beefy looking showers to the South moving in the Canvey direction, South Essex looks a good place to be atm. Looks like I might catch the one above looks like it'll cross into Brentwood area.

Early days tbh, but probably not great is the answer at the moment. Once these shower train set up they don't move much. I suppose for us we only need a very slight shift but over the last few hours we have seen less and less showers so were just feeding of the scraps. Maybe a couple of CMs overnight if we get lucky.

Thanks you were spot on lol hardly got a covering

Bang on 3 inches here. Still snowing will report back after it stops.

Worth highlighting the risk of heavier more prolonged snow tomorrow morning for Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk which then extends W across the region. The highest snowfall amounts obviously in the E.

Was anyone expecting showers more widely across the whole region? Because I certainly was especially with such cold uppers over a relatively warm north sea, I know some coastal counties have done well, but for the rest of us it's been very disappointing up to now to say the least.

Looks like tomorrow morning is the best hope for most of us, unless some showers can push further inland today/tonight.

i have officially built a 2 foot tall snowman and it's still snowing after over an hour after it started! Getting more snow from this then we've had from any frontal snow in years, you wouldn't think they were showers with the constant flakes falling inbetween

Really disappointed to wake up with the same amount I went to bed with just north of Colchester last night, especially with the forecast predicting a lot of snow.  Even half of what was predicted would have been decent but no, nothing fell overnight at all.

Currently at work on the Shotley Peninsula in Suffolk where they've had a fair bit more and still coming down as I type.  I might even go as far as to say they've had more here this morning than I was expecting although, again, the overnight amounts weren't anything special...couple of inches, tops.

I did try being realistic on this thread last week when the models were firming things up but got shot down in flames!! 

Never the less - the set up is going to change slightly over the next 24 hours to hopefully provide some more widespread snowfall coverage for the region and particularly EA, before things 'dry' up from the South from tomorrow lunchtime, until Friday afternoon that is when we can all expect a good covering hopefully (until it melts on Sunday).

Hopefully we all see something over the next day or two. Was just expecting more shower activity over more of the region in all honesty.

As TEITS says tonight is looking good for a whole maybe a band of snow heading west. MO video forecast has it all kicking off at about 18:00. MO are showing lots of showers a lot more than what the BBC are going for. Could we sneak an amber warning perhaps?

Have a look at TEITS post above, it looks like further parts of the region will see something over night. The winds will start changing to benefit more across the region as well - I think the only parts to miss out will be those North of the Thames up to the M25, which is unfortunate but the luck of the draw. All should see something by Friday though.

Think Epping through to Egham should see something in the coming hours - not so good NW of that though.

I can see a shower coming off the North Sea with yellow and orange echoes. Just skimming past Norwich. Only 100 miles to go... and disintegrating all the way... but if it keeps it's current track... it should arrive in Stevenage around lunchtime... and deliver a snowflake. Fingers crossed. 

Off out to enjoy some of the cold weather... ie make my way to work.
