Hi John, can I ask a question? Do you know when the term Surrey Hills appeared! I hear it constantly now and have lived here for nearly 50 years and never heard it until I saw a board go up on the side of the road in Farnham a few years ago! I just wondered if you had any idea? 

Sorry to butt in... the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding beauty was designated in 1958. So the term is at least 60 years old. I have lived here all my life (35 years as of tomorrow) but it seemed to me like they make more of a thing of it with the wooden sculptures and signs about a decade or so ago.

Looks like it could build through the late afternoon and evening. Stick to main roads, they’ve been gritted today and the traffic should keep them clear. Where are you going, Priestfeilds staidium?

Hi no I am going to a wedding reception in The Franklin Rooms

Look at the the met officer rader ... go back in time from then to now. You'll see the direction the snow bands/showers are movingin the SE  - which is anti clockwise, with the centre of the bands between london and the sussex coast. That centre might be a low pressure forming.

 

 

 

 Both. you can track it here: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/observation/rainfall-radar#?map=Rainfall&fcTime=1521226800&zoom=5&lon=-4.00&lat=55.01

i moved here 18 years ago and those wooden signs with the swirls all over them appeared a couple of years after that, I think. 

I know what you mean though... Everything is "Surrey Hills..." these days. Just easier than saying between Dorking and Guildford from my point of view!

Makes it a tourist destination I guess!

I was about to reply but Flightless is right! 

Still snowing relatively pitifully here in Reigate...

a streamer is a good possibility. don't worry about MetO forecasts now, just watch the observations- radar, sattelite and wind direction.

Good advice

Just showers there though, many will fade. We’re likely to get some more prolonged snow.

OK, thanks. cold winters can clump together ... why not cold springs. i remember frozen snow flakes on the ground in the winter of 1956. i was very young.  Then came 62-63, lol!  Magnificent.

When was you born?

Size of the snowflakes at the Stoke match ais ridiculous!

I reckon i'd need 100 of my flakes to make just 1 of theirs.

They deserve it. Not much else for them to get excited about.

And they live in Stoke.

For anyone that’s interested in what’s happening to the North of London the Snow has become heavier in the last half hour and is settling on all surfaces. 15 miles west of Bury st Edmunds.

Has been snowing all day here so far, whether it’s been individual flakes or polystyrene balls lol. Only a tiny dusting on some roofs and grass. Very cold in that wind, the temperature has dropped slowly and is currently -1C, very unusual for mid March. Hopefully will see much heavier snow later?

We will mate. You’ll get it first as I’m west of you. It’s developing now in association with a wave from the south and a trough aligning through the Thames Valley

Yes really pepping up in north London. It’s not stopped snowing now for several hours

Just went to move the car away from the main road and this morning's snow has frozen solid to the windscreen!

Continuing with the light snow here. Still looking east :)

There's been continuous light snow here even when the radar was showing nothing over me.

That was picked up by some models yesterday, I'm wondering what the pressure chart looks like, thinking g a wave building behind today's low, how it looked, but now maybe another full low develops.
