I was just about to post about that! Holt moly. I don't think any of the models forecast PPN that heavy over that area!

Still snowing in Rochester, but very light at the moment. Hope that doesn't do anything to the covering we've got! 1cm (ish) on the garden table.

Been snowing here in SE21 since 8ish - now only paths and roads not white - but suspect not for long

Settling everywhere except the roads and pavements.   Does anyone know if the dew points will get low enough to settle there too?  And roughly what time?  There's nothing worse than watching snow falling, going to waste! :nonono::laugh:

I’ve been watching that too. It wasn’t picked up by many high res models, which proves the nowcast theory when it comes to snow and easterlies!

Proper flakes here now but there is also some sunshine starting to develop as the flat stratus breaks up into a more sunshine and showers type of set up.

We had heavy snow for about 15 mins which laid on cars and grass but not paths, roads or patio. It’s now ver fine snow. Temperature on my fridge thermometer which has been outside since last night says -0.07. Rainham Kent.

I wouldn't worry, you'll get plenty Murr snow later from that band! 

(Sorry, that was poor, i'll get my coat and leave:laugh:)

I think the main action will come later as the wave from the south engages with the trough through the Thames Valley. Some areas will see a big surprise from this!

Agreed, I think the amber warning looks solid but this set-up is one that could spring a surprise for sure,I mentioned earlier that the convergence line looks similar to Feb 09. Then you also have the frontal zone close by which I also have to say is unusual.

May well get the classic "showers merging into longer spells of snow" this evening!

Snowing well in East Kent. 4 on the Murr scale with a few gusty blizzards. Magical snowfall I am in awe.

Worth noting the convergence line shown on the 00z Sunday FAX chart is at the EXACT same angle as the Feb 09 streamer, through S.London,out into Surrey near Guildford then through Hampshire (broadly along with the amber warning, may need to be slightly 'fattened')

Hi KW, yes remember that event well, FAX was spot on and resulted in a very potent Thames Streamer event. Think you were still living in Thurrock then, and along with Steve M, here in Lee, SE12, was directly downwind of you, on that ENE flow and eagerly awaited, your snow reports. Looking at the HIRLAM, looks to set-up a convergence zone, Thames Estuary/Corridor, as we go further into Saturday and overnight, into Sunday, before fading away, tomorrow morning,

Regards,

Tom.

No, the direction of flow is changing now behind the front to more Easterly, as it pushes further south the winds will veer round more easterly

Snowing quite heavily here and starting to settle on grass and roofs. Windy and cold at just 1C, and falling. What a massive change overnight.
