    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.

    The orange penis now has a perfect Thames streamer look to it for later. Game on ? ❄️

    Yep looks textbook ENE streamer, same orientation as Feb 09. Not to say out time will be the same but there's certainly a possibility of that.

    Quite fascinating. The Met Office's amber warning zone is the zone with no precip ???

    I'm guessing there is more precip looking to move in later?

    Can't help wondering where these "showers" are going to come from. Looking from Birmingham northwards the North Sea is packed with showers and has been for hours on the radar returns.

    But off the coast of EA/SE there is nothing there at all? We have around 2cms on everything other than roads or paths, but those are drying nicely now so IF anything else appears later today it should stick.

    Hi, newcomer here (Severe Weather UK on Twitter) - here's my forecast from yesterday for max snow totals between this AM and Sunday PM (0-200m average) - two convergence zones, one around Lincs the other around the Thames estuary (as shown on latest Fax chart) could give showery 10cm+ locally, though something closer to 5cm is more likely even in the heavy zones (hence 40% chance) - some models such as HIRLAM are also picking up on a second organised area of snow affecting southern parts of our region Sunday PM, although only a minority show this. N.B Don't take my map too literally!

    No offence mate but if me and @Paul Sherman get a repeat of that, expect toys by the boat load heading down the Thames tonight ?

    The cells will literally form on the coast of Essex and Kent like they did last time round, you won't have much from the North Sea they will be forming straight literally on our doorstep. They will then continue to develop one after another after another after another hopefully leading  to some good snow Falls

    In your case, it seems that patience will be rewarded matty

    Streamers develop 100-150 miles off of the coast, not out at sea.

    When the colder air moves over later today and winds turn more ENE then shower/streamer activity will kick in. No point looking for showers yet, we're hours away.

    Timing wise I suspect kickoff for the sten streamer to be about 2 or 3 roughly and then to move west southwest from there into South London Surrey and then into Hampshire from there. Places that do get training showers will probably see a decent amount of snowfall.

    I wouldn’t worry about a dry slot this afternoon. It looks as though more moisture will be injected into the atmosphere later associated with the wave feature. In a few hours time, I think the radar will start coming to life once again.

    Yep but the big impact there is south London - Feb 2009 redux (I bloody well hope so!).

    Yes fingers crossed. This Thames streamer was due to start kicking off after 12pm but the PPN blob still looks way out to our north over Ipswich. The sausage warning area remains in the dry bit, hopefully something will start to show up on the radar soon moving towards the London area.

    My understanding is that a wave front is going to move up/across the south this evening and tonight and showers to the north of that.

    Had around 5 hours of persistent light snow so far, laid on everything but concrete so far and still going. Hoping for more later.

    Currently light snow, very blowy and -1c with a -3c dew point. About 2cm though hard to tell due to the wind.

    The warning kicks in at 4pm for the region,so not sure where you get 12pm from?

    Imo the met office will err on the side of caution anyway with a warning  like that,so perhaps more likely after 1700 to start causing issues.

    Moderate/light snow for most of the morning leaving a slight dusting. Looking too far north for anything meaningful this time round but good luck to you guys on the estuary!

    • 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.
