Looking at the direction [anti clockwise] of the snow radar returns for the SE ... it does look as if a low is forming over the south east  [between london and the sussex coast].  

The low is over France

It's crazy!

I forgot to mention earlier when I went on my short quick walk.. I was talking with an elderly lady who told me cold springs were a regular occurrence back in her day.. She was born in 1943.. I got the impression she was quietly enjoying the weather though even if she was struggling to stay upright at times:rolleyes:

What does that mean? Just looking to learn :)

Look at the the met officer rader ... go back in time from then to now. You'll see the direction the snow bands/showers are movingin the SE  - which is anti clockwise, with the centre of the bands between london and the sussex coast. That centre might be a low pressure forming.

Is this band of snow going straight down or to the left ?

The radar shows current weather, not the next 24 hours?

Hi John, can I ask a question? Do you know when the term Surrey Hills appeared! I hear it constantly now and have lived here for nearly 50 years and never heard it until I saw a board go up on the side of the road in Farnham a few years ago! I just wondered if you had any idea? 

i moved here 18 years ago and those wooden signs with the swirls all over them appeared a couple of years after that, I think. 

I know what you mean though... Everything is "Surrey Hills..." these days. Just easier than saying between Dorking and Guildford from my point of view!

Makes it a tourist destination I guess!

Cold springs were all the rage in the 1960s, after the 62-63 winter.

Looks like it could build through the late afternoon and evening. Stick to main roads, they’ve been gritted today and the traffic should keep them clear. Where are you going, Priestfeilds staidium?

The met office radar allows you to go back but also to look at the present situation.

But you said 4pm!!!!!!!

I never said 4pm, that was another member. I said later in the afternoon. I do agree with the 4pm comment though. Nobody said the whole region would be covered in snow at 4pm, we said the developments would start then, and they are.

It looks like there a thames streamer building which from my limited understanding is that we do very well out of it usually.

I know it is impossible to forecast snow but the met office have been toying with the idea of us getting heavy snow at some point. Granted they have been pushing it back and bringing it forward but it seems like we may get lucky.

a streamer is a good possibility. don't worry about MetO forecasts now, just watch the observations- radar, sattelite and wind direction.

OK, thanks. cold winters can clump together ... why not cold springs. i remember frozen snow flakes on the ground in the winter of 1956. i was very young.  Then came 62-63, lol!  Magnificent.
