Is it me or is precipitation forming right on the edge of our coastline, east Kent? Screenshot_20180317-175401.thumb.png.a047631511ffa1c30fd1a25593b4f18e.png

I like Dark sky, you can see the direction of PPN clearly, as there are arrows. If any of you guys click on the link, you can move the map around to see more of the UK

Ever so slightly bigger flakes in Bromley but it’s just been light for ages and not settling on pavements - still believe the amber warning looking at the radar so feeling good

I imagine anyone reading this thread from any country where snow is a regular occurrence and in copious amounts must think us complete bonkers with our lamp post watching, radar analysing and arguing about whether the event is a write off or the best thing since last time 24 hours before it's due to be over ;-)

The blob over Suffolk returns. Now this puzzles me. Is it a fake radar return or local forcing causing the intensification 🤔

I want to know, is this one genuine or is it lying to us like the last one did? :laugh:

It's all freezing out there in Lee, SE12! Ice could be a real issue tonight.

It's been snizzling, at variable intensities, for about 3 hours now and surfaces that didn't get anything settling this morning are now slowly going white.

The dark blues are about to arrive, with a spattering of green.

Patience people :)

Nope coming down thick and fast now and finally settling on the paths and side roads

Yeah radar suggesting moderate snows setting into S.Essex, Paul the UKV 17z update puts you into the bullseye around 9-10pm, snowfall rates around 2 inches an hour at that point in time!

I hope the energy I've put into today's anticipation won't be in vain. First it was 2pm, then 4pm, 5pm, 8pm, now it might not happen until 9 or 10pm. I made special plans to go to the pub tonight just for the pleasure of walking there in a blizzard, not so appealing in what amounts to white drizzle, and I'll be glued to the forum instead if the heavy stuff doesn't start before the band!

It looks like yesterday’s dry zone should have been the orange zone 👍👍 heavy snow here for the last hour and a good covering

Precip is strengthening over the west of the region as the forcing starts to increase from the east, small area over Surrey, stronger area between Slough and Reading. Remember 9pm is when things get real interesting!

Yh really starting to ramp up a bit now, this does look like a classic streamer to me, moreso than Beast Part I a few weeks back.

Beast Mark III looks like it could ruin Easter Egg Hunts as well - Love It!

Just hope that UKV is correct as have sledging pencilled in for 9am tomorrow morning

East Kent part real, don't know about the rest, but kind of looks connected.

Why on the radar v7 or extra app, whenever I click Europe, the resolution goes really blocky and pixelated?

Dunno but precipitation in the SE area is now circulating anticlockwise, over a wide area, around ... London.  Is London the temporary centre of a shallow low, which, earlier, was centred south of London?
