Can’t tell anymore what is falling from the sky from what is being whipped up by the winds, up from the ground, down from rooftops and off the trees, it’s mayhem :rofl:

Up, down, backwards, sideways, it's all go innit? :D

Winds have really picked up in the last 10 minutes. Blowing up big clouds of powder into the air. -3.6C at midday is incredible!

Is it snowing with you?  I am in the City up a big tower and I probably see your location.  Currently sun peeping out here, after white out conditions earlier. Looks to me like you don't have the same at present.

For the Essex contingent looks like my hometown of Brentwood's a good place to be today!

My old town for 25 years :sorry:

Now in a large clear Zone with no showers, North Norfolk likely to get any more later? I'm North or Norwich and there is minimal coming in from the coast

Showers definitely moving southward over Suffolk now, still a few flakes blowing about here (possibly from the sky, who knows?)

I suspect that's it for much of Norfolk, at least for a few hours.

Must admit I'm impressed with the longevity of the shower activity today - expected it to all peter out this morning. Wind strength seems to have pepped up the snow squalls

I still anticipate it to die down this afternoon but it's good fun until then! Not much in the way of decent snow totals from today's showers though.

Reckon we're due any more today in the Loughton/chingford area?

Not sure. Seems to be easing off now. 

If we maintain an easterly feed rather than south easterly then we have a chance due to the longer sea track

Although radar still looks ok drier air coming in now - convection/showers will likely start to fizzle, worst of todays snow has most likely passed.

Can see on this pic the back end of the moisture plume running across Germany, when that feed runs out it will be the end of the shower trains across our region.

Just need those narrow streamers to level out so they are running directly east to west! To be honest I’ll be just happy with cloud right now as it’s a battle of snow v sun and the sun is inevitably starting to win!

I have not looked on the MOD thread and I feel better for it.  However, it means I have no idea as to whether there is an end in sight for this cold, snowy period now.  The forecast on my phone's app suggest that by Saturday/Sunday - the temps will rise??

Thanks.

Total poo isnt it, thats its ending so quick, was hoping as per many of 10/14  days plus once the snow had arrived

To back up Look Eats one of the dutch weather centers is forcasting 7c plus from sat for 10 days, which I really dont believe.
