Recommended Posts

This spell has been exceptional for most not all,especially those who thought they were in the fireing line for snow ,but as nick sussex said in one of his posts yesterday it's shame the SSW came so late this time round ,if it had came in January it might have been even more impressive 

Better luck next winter for us all

Think peacehaven was just too far  east from the main area again, slight dusting, glad Brighton and Shoreham had some more, do we except some today?

This is what I keep thinking - if only it was Dec/Jan!!! Ah well, at least most have seen a little something now.... Now just roll on Spring and Summer and I'll be back here come November searching for signs of the next SSW, lol!!x

Coming down again fairly hard here in Farnham! 

So chuffed! But remembered I left my mums wheelchair outside! Trying to defrost it before I take her outside! She’s not at all well and doesn’t go out so I want to try to at least let her see it in the Garden! 

Hooe it stays long enough!

We didn't get much more from when I went to bed last night.. Our next snowfall according to the models is later on this morning/ afternoon into the evening.

I'm in Epsom - what's the best direction to drive in to find a nice slope for sledging?! North, South, East or West of me??!!x

Not quite enough to hide the grass and paths but it's white outside here in Charlwood. I just went up to the Midlands forum and I should not have tortured myself. I bet they never get this when I move up there. :rofl: Still, it's been better snow wise than the last 5 years here. Maybe we might have a last chance saloon at the end of the month.

Does it slightly vex anyone else when Weather forecasters in TV use emotive language instead of just saying the facts?!

lovely, nasty, horrible etc weather! 

One mans meat is another mans poison! 😉

Sorry @D.V.R I dropped off at last. No I slipped on the wet decking. It was only power hosed three months before. I might need surgery but I’m holding of from that as much as possible.

Ok. Did you get much in Epsom? I lived there for 40 years and am always curious. Had precious little since moving to Charlwood 6 years ago.

This easterly hasn't really favoured us this time.. It looks like most other regions did a lot better than us:cray:

Well yesterday was bizarre on the Costa del Southend. About 15hrs continuous snowfall leaving about 2.5cm. Most of that falling during the morning. I can’t remember a time where snow was falling for so long, but doing absolutely nothing for accumulation. I also can’t remember the last time an Amber warning was so badly wrong as well. Poor from the METO and will think twice about paying attention in the future!

Just started snowing again moderately here in Odiham. You can clearly see an isolated blob of precipitation on the MetO radar that is perfectly aligned for you (Farnham) and then me. Looks like it will last for about half an hour or so.

yeah its a miserable night more like november than march.

cant get rid of quote, anyway it was an awful night, very strong winds, no snow, woke up to very bright light an hour ago then it took nearly an hour to go through all the night's posts, now its very overcast and still very chilly. All the birds are ok, i do worry about them in the cold weather, because its so dark they are still all a bit dopey and not moving.Only baby is cheeping a bit and seagull is mooching about pulling stuff out of the medicine cabinet, bandages, plasters, anything he can get hold of, i shall have to put it all back later.

I was sad to see the bickering that went on overnight, we have a great little community here and that sort of thing spoils it.I'm looking out now for posts explaining beast 3 and the forecast for that if it seems likely.Also loving the photos and videos from those who had snow in the last few hours.

Anywhere along the south, especially later on when it's starts slipping south.. Tbh I can't give you a definitive answer we just have to watch the radar.
