I don't believe that blob Iam under it and if anything it's lighter snow than has been...I think radar for snow is not good as the radar just picks up  blowing snow in the  air

Yes sj, can report the same from next door to you, in SE12. Most heavy it's been, so far.

Regards,

Tom.

I'm under the blob, Essex Suffolk border 10 miles from the coast. Don't get excited, light snow blowing in the wind. NOT a disaster zone.

Well the blob is approaching me near to Halstead (north Essex) so I should be able to report how heavy it is. Currently light to moderate but I’m not under the green bit yet.

Front seems to be sinking through a bit faster than the high res models predicted and then we need to work out what is going on to our east. Anyone in n Suffolk/s Norfolk able to report?? 

Have to say that blob on the radar does look very suspect to me. 14 years of radar watching gives you a gut feeling with these things, and the blob isn't really behaving in a way that makes me think its real. Not to say there isn't snow there, but just not looking like that.

Snow trying to settle at time on roads and pavements then melts again, surface needs to cool a little bit, although pavement is starting to look white in places.

Unlike the last Beast, the snow today has more water content, so is sticking nicely to trees and fences, so certainly making for some photogenic tree covered in snow scenes this weekend. Still coming down moderately here in Croydon with about 1-2cm on the shed roof and in patches on grass, still not settling on roads, pavements or similar hard ground surfaces

Medium sized flakes not heavy enough to over come the warmth in the ground from yesterday hopefully it peps up a bit soon

My parents are under the blob now and its nothing major- lighter snow than it was not being under it.

Sunshine and light showers here, to be honest looking at the radar I think there will be more emphasis on the sunshine as any showers clear from the Norfolk area.

You could be diverted to brum or stansted I think. it’s a bit of a nowcast job for the next 24 hours. This cold front hasn’t proved a problem but it has waves headed west later on. Tbh, you will probably see more in Wales tomorrow !!

Anyway interesting day ahead. The metoffice forecast map is still working this time round and shows lots of shower packing in once the front clears.
