Heavy continuous snow in Chingford now. Sky’s are solid! Defo streamer setting up 

starting to settle on main roads

Good good, I'm at work in central London, snow is just scraping us here. Will be heading home shortly back to Chingford. Hopefully we get more snow for the rest of the afternoon.

Looks like we have bit of a streamer situation in the south of the region at the moment, the radar is showing showers just feeding in from the sea. We've had another hour or snow of continuous heavy snow.

Sky is really dark now, heavy snow......again. Is this gonna end today or just keep on coming?

There's a sunny interval coming in from the east...the giant yellow-white anvil cloud following it looks okay!:yahoo:

Stopped here with clouds breaking and brightening up now which is a shame, looking good many areas of the region but I fear that might be it for over ‘ere

We have a good 7-8 inches here with more falling, and it's drifting slightly in the wind.  I'm unable to go out as even my offroad wheelchair would get melting snow in its electrics in this much.

Really surprised by the amount of snow here - plenty of beefy showers still piling in off the east coast. Nothing like some regions, but for us this far west to get as much as we have, I'm chuffed!

Don't fear - you've done better than most! A mere 1-2cm here near Cambs

Now up to 11cms here, 10 miles west of Ipswich. My interest now is the strengthening easterly wind. First of all, for those in the west of the Region this could see showers reaching further inland. But secondly, the snow lying on tree branches and roofs is already being blown about. I can see problems later as the wind gradually increases. Gusts of up to 40mph by this afternoon will see this dry, powdery snow getting blown off fields, etc., and possibly blocking roads. Despite snow showers easing, will places experience 'ground blizzards' later on?

Arpege gusts 14.00 5a967f9fa5be0_ArpegeGustsWed28Feb14_00.thumb.png.fe608cec9664ea71bb99099189a7422a.png

Edit: Have the Met Office lifted their Amber warning too early? It expired at 10.00 and it's still moderate snowfall here with worsening conditions.

That's my concern, Malcolm - we've got more here than you have, and main roads around here, even the A11 and A47, are closed due to accidents and abandoned vehicles.

I'm not a forecaster (beyond radar watching and saying "it's going to snow!", but NW short range model is showing the Thursday/Friday event heading more towards Ireland? Hope I've just misread it, but that's a hell of a change compared to the current amber/yellow warnings for most of southern England....

Interesting running the radar back you can see the direction of travel changing slightly.

Only shame is it's a work day, would've been great to get the Fuji out and take some photos!

Pretty Classic ESE Streamer here, areas of NE London and NW London will do well here along with South Herts and Bucks

It's nothing compared to Drumochter Pass, late on a snowy Friday night, or early on a Monday morning!:santa-emoji:

Maybe somebody knows, but throughout the UK , the showers on the radar all seem to be clumping together to form continuous streamers. So if your in one your lucky , its what the radar looks like anyway
