I can't help but think this will fizzle out for us down here with that expanding blob moving to the North of us. 

I thought it had stopped but there is some falling very light, but flakes not ice. I'm not sure green blob will head north of us as I think it's connected to the front giving us snow, could be wrong though.

Yep, pepping up in a the Thames Estuary, possible convergence starting

It's been going for the last 40 minutes or so - ranging from extremely light snow to light snow, with such shallow convection that the radar doesn't always pick it up! I'd imagine it'll get a bit heavier as time goes by!

It's also powder snow by the looks of it rather than the sopping wet stuff that fell earlier. Here in Leysdown (east end of Sheppey, on that map) the temperature's now an impressive -0.4!

I prefer that it hasn't settled much on paths and roads, it's much easier for everyone to get around.. We've had no melt where the snow had managed to settle earlier and now the light snow has started to settle straight away.

Possible wave developing along frontal boundary over south North Sea to east of East Kent

Yeah, the UKVlatest update shows quite the rash of showers forming from 4pm onwards with a marked uptick around 8pm...same time as the Feb 09 streamer really went into overdrive!

Well, nothing much laid here. It is very cold though. I suspect it may hit north of here but still interesting watching the showers develop :)

The 6hrs output is onthe UKMO website, doesn't go beyond that, hope this works:

https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/map#?map=Rainfall&fcTime=1521273600&zoom=8&lon=-0.19&lat=51.65

Past 6hrs resolution decreases. From 4-5pm showers start to become more potent, similar to those hitting up north.

Estuary steadily filling in with precip, nothing other than light stuff at the moment but at all trending the right way, looks the Met office will be spot on with their warning time of 4pm. Amber warning zone looks spot on to me atm.

We still have snow laying from this morning, the light stuff over the last couple of hours has just added a bit of a sugar coating in places.
