    I'm losing the will to live.  Once again, for those at the back. The main snow risk isn't until 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. The colde

    So the cold is almost at an end with a steady thaw expected over the coming days. As such the region will be one again. May I just say that the last week has been a real experience and I must tha

    Some people need to grow up. If you want to bicker and snipe do it via PM. Because the rest of us don’t want to know.

    Just started snowing in the last couple of minutes, ordinary sized flakes blowing in a bit of breeze, doesn't feel all that cold outside and surfaces wet.

    a sizzling 2 degrees on Worthing pier.

    too warm for snow at the moment! (No idea what the dew points are though)  

    Steady at 3 degrees just to the west in Lancing, but dew point has just gone negative at -0.4.

    That blob is gonna cause havoc on the Murr scale. If that carries on as it is, could be an 8-9 out of 10! Just keeps intensifying.

    Wife reports heavyish snow at work (Care Home, Elmstead Lane, Chislehurst/Elmstead Woods border) and tells me a streamer must be starting, as "it's coming from the East". WTF, I've turned her into, Michael Fish.:D I told her not quite yet but def. possibility, later on.

    Regards,

    Thought he could pull you thru the mud eating the grass on the way ? Makes a fresh path for your snow when you get some :pardon:

    If we can get to the pub I'll probably ride it back home :rofl:

    In Sandbanks where it is grey and rainy at present; woken up in the night by heavy rain (hail?) against the window. Driving back to Surbiton at lunch time, excited to arrive to snow and a lamp post watch this evening. Is there snow yet on the roads in the SW London/Surrey anywhere?

    Edit, just reading back it appears Farnham, Cobham and Staines are already reporting snow. Re @kold weather and 2009, that is still my favourite streamer for high impact in a short time, I just wish it could have lasted like 2010.

    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:

    Hi Leeanne, 

    Lateset dew points, from Meteociel they should continue to drop, from the east, during the afternoon, aiding any snow falling to settle.

    Blobwatch - years of watching this kind of thing on radars has thought me never to assume anything will happen. I’ve seen tstorms and snowstorms manage to dissipate when it looked like they had no choice but to strike me!

    BLOBWATCH UPDATE!

    I've just compared it from 8:15am to 9:20am. Look how much it's grown in the last hour... Genuinely didn't expect to see this developing as it is so far. More importantly, is anyone currently under it?! If so, how heavy is it?

    Band has been perfectly forecasted by HIRLAM, once again been very impressed by this model thus far!

    Front strengthening on its western side as it heads through Berkshire and Surrey.

    Maybe Suffolk has been wiped out by the blob which explains the lack of posts from that area!

    May be slightly north of that blob, currently small flakes blowing about aimlessly but sky looks very white and laden.

    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')

    I remember that event well, it was excellent here in Ockendon. This morning we have an inch or so everywhere except roads and pavements and it's been snowing since quite early, some of it huge flakes!

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
