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.

Very IMBY, but hey-ho... It seems an accurate prediction as far as the latest GFS goes. It could be that if a streamer set-up were to occur, then it could be higher totals further inland. I reckon that areas to the SW and WSW of The Wash will see quite a lot more than he predicts.

I suppose with the current set-up we just need to see how much convection kicks off over the next few days. 

Hopefully those of us further west get a taste too!

Great to see some reports of snow coming in - exciting times

https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/

^ has a forecast that gives snow to everyone in the next few days inc surprises of the convective (-:

I'd love to be able to sledge down that Hovis advert street in the background of this forecast.

...off to feed the cats now and maybe nap to awake to a flake or too

The Thames Estuary has awoken.

It looks like it is. The showers should start building up as that weak front/shower band heads in. Starting to get interesting now...

As I said earlier these Streamers set up 50-70 miles offshore, same every time and in the same area.

In fact the 1991 event started in this very same way, its almost identical with the shower spread from that famous Ian Macaskill video

I just realised how much I miss those snow symbols!! :D
I have to say, that forecast was just as, if not more informative than most TV forecasts we get these days, and even though those symbols seem haphazard, the fact that they are less definitive, gives a more accurate picture of how hit-and-miss the showers will be over the coming days. If a white blob appears on a TV forecast over an area now, some people end up expecting it to be hitting them. It gave us a dose of reality to a degree.

Thanks, Paul, enjoyed watching that.  Here's hoping for more of the same this time!  I remember 1991 well...I was sent home from school early.

Why is the Ely/Cambridge/Bedford area bypassed by streamers on both sides....is it due to the lack of draw for the convective showers to form from the east......(i.e. theres not much sea compared to further north.....)...or is it just that the rump of East Anglia is not good for shower penetration?
