Not according to the charts, South London could be in for a bit of fun though! I think North of the Thames will miss out. 

Those showers currently over Essex should hit north London, but there isn't much behind that on the radar at the moment. The winds have clearly veered to more of an easterly, so hopefully more convection will build over the rest of the day and tonight.

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.

Certainly a direct East moisture field coming off the Netherlands coast on Sat24, if a disturbance runs through it, it could certainly liven it up.

What are your thoughts on our chances for the rest of the day mate? Doesn't seem to be much in the way of showers forming.

No more than an incomplete dusting at Watford with no real fresh snow overnight - the small bits we have are in the process of sublimating or melting in the sun.

Now have a temp of zero, slighty more humid today at 68% - steadily decreasing pressure - see NW have promised us some for this afternoon and see the wind is changing to a more easterly quadrant, so we may benefit from a Thames streamer but don't really want the temp to rise much higher, otherwise we will get wet stuff instead of powder,

Was thinking back and a number of times circa 20 years ago we get maxes of -5C around here, though the beast from the east has been modified by comparatively warmer temps, though it has come later in the season this time.

Very little in mid Norfolk, mostly sunny with the occasional snowflake pottering about. Grass still visible....

Yet I'm only 15 miles from you at most!  Heavy snow shower at present.

I think the issue at the moment is the time of year. Jan '87 and Feb '91 had max temps widely sub zero with similar upper temps (in the case of Feb '91) and thicknesses. 

We are virtually in March now so max temps are higher than they would have been even a few weeks earlier. 

Still bitterly cold though!

Need to be educated here!  Why is snow failing to settle in Chelmsford?  Just had a heavy-ish shower with large flakes but as soon as they his the ground, they melt!  The temp is around freezing and dew point must be favourable??  :cc_confused::cc_confused::unknw:

Pretty sure someone mentioned sublimation - think it's more or less evapouration straight back into the air but I'm just repeating what I've read, so probably best someone who knows their stuff explains it!

Netweather showing 19cm of snow from 2100-0000 tonight - surely can't be right?!?!

Not quite as bad/good for me, 10cm expected between 3-6pm in Milton Keynes but 4 inches in an hour even seems a lot!

Exactly - don't remember much of '47, the other really cold winter but understand th difference was more of a Greenie high set up, rather than a Scandy one. That year the cold and snow did not really set in until the end of Jan but lasted until April - the comparison between that year and '63 is quite interesting  because overall there was more snow, with some considerable depths being recorded and less sunshine in '47.

It's all about radar watching now. 

The wind flow is more favourable for us, however will we see another build of convection to take advantage of this? Will have to wait and see.

Que?? :laugh: Do you mean it is now too cold to settle?

If that is the case, let just have spring - it is miserable.
