Clear and starry here, just south-west of Cambridge.  Currently -5.6C, low of -6 last night.  A few brief flurries of snow yesterday and today, despite fearsome dark clouds swiftly giving way to sunshine, but only a dusting still on the drive, most of the grass is clear and it didn't settle on the roads.

Perfect pike fishing weather.

All going well still in the Thames Estuary. Ppn building very nicely, with some strong radar echoes showing. Essex coast in the firing line.

Lowestoft weather did that last shower produce for you?

It's snowing heavily here now. The sky is full of the white stuff tonight, dread to think how much we'll have by the morning :shok:.

After a brief respite, coming down thick and fast again in Norwich with some heavy ones on the way too by the looks of the radar. I reckon we have had around 4 inches so far tonight.

Looking at the radar it seems that Chelmsford might just get in on the snow action (I hope!)

I can see the London area getting some snowfall out of this. There are some nice strong pulses of ppn appearing in the Thames Estuary and off the coast of Essex now.

Certainly more organised shower formation getting going now.

And more of a horizontal flow too.

Some action on the cards in otherwise less prone parts-previously...

And streamer unlikely....but certainly not out of the question!?..

Yeah definitely, the North Sea is alive and kicking tonight. The beast has arrived :cold:

As the winds pick up tonight I reckon these snow showers will penetrate further inland than the last 24 hours.

I always feel there’s an umbrella over us in Chelmsford!!!

And here I was hoping to get an early night tonight! :D

It looks so much more promising than for ages tonight. The next few radar runs should indicate whether the Thames will increase convection, but it is looking great so far, with the showers starting to band together to the East.

I can't see that happening tonight. You should get at least a covering. There is a nice blob heading towards you and you have the perfect wind direction to blow ppn through from Maldon.

Meanwhile, the ppn that is affecting N Kent is expanding as it moves West and has spread to the North of the Thames by Tilbury.
