OMG, don't remember ever seeing a fax chart like that, thats actually verified anyway. Still a long way off though at T72, but it seems to me that something special, especially for Mid/late March is likely to turn up for our region.

At this stage I will stick my neck out and say areas around Croydon, Surrey generally, and up towards London including West London could be the Jackpot locations.:)

I always thought the channel tunnel was finished:cc_confused:

The latest met office video wasn't suggesting much other than a few cm in Kent so bit confused if we are going to get much other than showers feeding in Sunday also rather than a snow fest. Keeping everything crossed !! 

No it didn’t say that,it said could be more than 2-5cm in our region.How is it people are unable to follow a video so easily,same in the MOD thread:gathering:

30% chance of more distruptive snow is hardly nailed on imo. Looked more south of region and west in the graphic so hoping it spreads across whole of SE as obviously no one  knows yet.

Looking good.  I notice you have wallpapered your greenhouse and have an easy chair in there.  Couldn't spot the beer keg.

Couple of questions. 

Did you get a good deal as the cost of your buffet food heater makes the chillies expensive initially? 

What is the hottest chilli you grow (Scoville scale)?

Hehe, that’s because it’s not my greenhouse, it’s my lounge! The growlight garden was £70 I think, bit pricey but I had amazon vouchers from my birthday to use so came out cheap 😀 The unit is very cheap to run. I don’t grow hot chillies, the hottest is jalapeño at around 2500 Scoville units. Don’t see the point as can’t taste anything hotter, just burns.

At the same time as watching these posts about possible snow i'm following the most awful breaking news story that a bridge has collapsed and lots of cars are trapped under it, i don't expect its survivable, just gives a perspective to the bickering going on in the model thread.

Omg where? Never mind read your answer to someone else hope not to many have been hurt.

Six are dead last I read never mind injured I believe and it was only finished this weekend. Although the pedestrian part was yet complete there would have been even more injuries. 

Not quite liking the trend to push things more north...seems ECM op was backed.

Nice bit of kit that. They should be ready for planting out in a few weeks. I grew Scotch Bonnet chillies last year,hot buggers! 

Just going spuds on the allotment this year,was going to put in the earlies this weekend but can't see myself planting spuds and it snowing on me!

I ll leave it a few weeks now.

Anyone else thinking surely we can't get lucky a second time?? Ive seen for myself that it's all there in black and white (or rather blues and purples lol) on the charts but can't quite believe it's actually going to happen eek!!:cold:

Just had a browse through latest HIRLAM (which imho was best for showing snow depths a couple weeks ago and it looks like light snow will reach SELondon about 6am Saturday morning and spread Southwards and Westwards and looks on and off till end of that run which is 6pm Saturday.Then we may have further snow to think about Saturday evening and Sunday which looks more widespread.I have a feeling that although it may not hang around that long there could be some quite significant falls and i feel quite a few areas that didnt see that much in late feb/early march will be pleasently surprised(if snow is your thing)

As always, gonna be a case of wait and see, last cold spell some areas got stuck under a streamer of snow showers for ages, while down the road it stayed dry, however this time, there does look to be good reason that snow will be more widespread and persistent for a time Sunday morning, though some spots will obviously receive more than others.
