    Sunshine and light showers here, to be honest looking at the radar I think there will be more emphasis on the sunshine as any showers clear from the Norfolk area.

    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.

    Have to say that blob on the radar does look very suspect to me. 14 years of radar watching gives you a gut feeling with these things, and the blob isn't really behaving in a way that makes me think its real. Not to say there isn't snow there, but just not looking like that.

    Inversion Maybe ? A la 2009 ?

    You could be diverted to brum or stansted I think. it’s a bit of a nowcast job for the next 24 hours. This cold front hasn’t proved a problem but it has waves headed west later on. Tbh, you will probably see more in Wales tomorrow !!

    My parents are under the blob now and its nothing major- lighter snow than it was not being under it.

    I feel sick. I've been lied to for the past 2 hours! Scrap the blobwatch movement. The blob is dead to me:angry:

    Anyway interesting day ahead. The metoffice forecast map is still working this time round and shows lots of shower packing in once the front clears.

    I'm nr Danbury , between Maldon and Chelmsford. V strong winds , fairly big flakes, I anticipate #bigblob to reach me within the hour.

    Oh I know Woodham Walter, weirdly from a programme called Forensic Files because of that yacht murder. So weird when I've lived nearby nearly all my life to have no idea until I saw a programme from the US! Such an interesting case.

    Still snowing here in South Woodham, still not settling on roads though. Come on blob.

    Really quite big flakes in Bromley now it’s settling quicker on the grass than it has been this morning so far - still need temperatures down for settling on paths and road

    Just been out for a pond\snow inspection and I have to say, despite looking very pretty, the quality is v poor. Melts when I walk on it leaving muddy footprints in the grass:( I think I've been spoilt by too many trips to the Alps, expectations are high - I'd forgotten what English snow was like;) Still time for improvement though, temps about 1.5c here

    Unlike the last Beast, the snow today has more water content, so is sticking nicely to trees and fences, so certainly making for some photogenic tree covered in snow scenes this weekend. Still coming down moderately here in Croydon with about 1-2cm on the shed roof and in patches on grass, still not settling on roads, pavements or similar hard ground surfaces

    Nick - do you think there is a better chance of covering roads/pavements/concrete after dark (given the snow)?

    I'm guessing a problem with the radar site, you can see where suddenly the precip becomes lighter in an almost straight line on the northern side, suggesting a radar issue to me of some sorts rather than anything weather related.

    Adjusting the 00z Norderney tephi for a 6C with a dewpoint of -4C (representative of North Sea conditions today) gives you convective cloud top of about 2km (6,700ft ish). Inversion then present at this level, with very dry air above. Wiating for the upper cold pool to approach this afternoon/evening to help moisten the profiles a bit more and increase the convective depth.

    But yes, inversion could be playing a role with the radar, as can blowing snow and the snow itself make the radar over-read the intensities.

    #JUSTICEFORBLOB

    what i want to know is, whenever they show snowfall forecasts, Northamptonshire is almost always in the one dry zone that is shown.  Why is that?  Btw there is light snow blowing around in the wind at the moment but hardly anything to get excited about.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
