East Anglia and North London weather discussion (25/02/2018) onward

Recommended Posts

I am finding the weather at the moment incredibly frustrating. Had some heavy showers yesterday but nothing settled until about 5 when the last one went through and left a covering. Nothing overnight then a brief heavier shower about 8 this morning which topped up the one from yesterday evening. Only a thin covering which has melted in the sun. Just up the road from me in Colchester there has been quite a bit. Other places towards the coast have done well and it's great to see the pics😀

The automated forecast on the met office site for tonight and tomorrow looks quite encouraging and a much colder day than today with a max of minus 2. I know everyone says to ignore these but, quite frankly, for a day ahead it's been more accurate than any forecast or warning I've seen for my location so let's hope it continues.

Late Feb sun is strong, but i didn't think it was strong enough to melt roads:shok:

Car crash was just up the road from me.  We’ve had considerably more snow than Colchester town.  I don’t want to sound like I’m gloating but it comes over the top of my Doc Marten boots!

The sun is my enemy at the moment. Had a good 3/4cm of laying snow. Every time the sun shows its face the snow melts rapidly!

Thinking of changing my username to 'Disappointed of Romford'....got robbed of any favourable easterly component overnight, and unless i'm mistaken, we just got the easterly bit just as the convection dries up until sun-down. :rofl:

Still hoping for something nice here....just had a 5 minute heavy shower, but nothing upstream. And with the sun beaming through, it vanished in 5 minutes too....

But positive thinking! Tonight is another night, and Friday still looks to have potential, even if the bulk appears to be heading more Southern/South Western UK.  :D

Well, finally, it's happened. About 45 mins ago the beast delivered my first proper snow shower. Very heavy, full covering, but alas, the sun is making easy work of melting it all.

ah well, I've seen abit now, suppose I better stop moaning now...lol

Bit more optimistic about Thursday and Friday with the latest amber warnings....would expect to see a little eastwards migration of the zone, hopefully.  And that will be frontal snow, if i'm correct? A lot less hit and miss than streamers, at any rate :D

Hopefully we'll see a bit more movement our way but I'm not holding my breath. The convective stuff has mainly missed us so hopefully it'll go out with a big bang and a quick thaw over the weekend to avoid too many travel complications.

Looks like showers are slowly building around the Ipswich coast area. Let's see if these can grow and push inland.
