Just looking on the met office twitter feed and run the sequence for today and there’s definitely potential for more snow for this region this evening!!

Nothing here in the Cambridgeshire corridor of shame. Seems we might be the only area in the region without snow. Even the heavy stuff coming through on the radar looks like missing us.

We have nothing at all in Milton Keynes either.  Had a brief flurry yesterday and a few flakes this morning but nothing on the ground now and nothing else destined for us apart from maybe an inch Friday night /Saturday morning

Yes, just seen the precipitation forecast in the Met office app and it even looks like we could get more snow showers this afternoon. BBC app showing the same, heavy snow showers between 12 and 5 for Chingford (but always take the apps with a pinch of salt)

Look out the window in like 30 mins. A huge blob just passed Ipswich and is gaining strength, heading right to Cambridge.

That’s amazing IT, I think you are about 20 miles south of me and I am looking out on 4-5inches, those showers coming in off the wash last night is what did it for us. Unfortunately, the big showers to our east look like fizzling out before they reach us.

Tbh I don’t bother with apps. If you go on the met office twitter feed and look at the video sequence they put out this morning for the day. You can see what I mean with the wind swinging back more easterly again.

Me neither...as far as I can tell, apps change in response to each and every model run?

Yeah they’re crap at forecasting and just change with each run that comes out.

Where there was barely a breath of wind early this morning, it’s now definitely starting to pick up, snow blowing around more as it falls.

I'm eating humble pie. After being annoyed at the lack of snow Sunday/Monday I've now got over 20cm and it's started snowing again. It's mad here in Norwich, all the busses are cancelled, roads at a standstill. My kids went out and the snow is over the top of their wellies (all the schools are closed).

I'm not surprised tbh, Dan Holley reporting 18cm - 22cm in the city and it's still coming down!

Yeah roads here are thick with snow, nobody’s going anywhere, yet we have a gritting depot 100 yards up the road, don’t think they can get anywhere either :cold::cold:
