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 

 

Ah, that's probably what i saw via the radar - when going back in time a bit then to the present ... Anti clockwise movement, with the centre of that south of london/north of the sussex coast.

Ok you know best. I’m just saying what I see ! 

I'm not saying you're wrong but there are a lot of people writing this event off because the radar doesn't currently show much snow but as others have said these Met office warnings are from now until Sunday night so it's impossible to make any statement based on the current radar images. What everyone who is concerned needs do to is relax and see what develops. If there's no snow this time tomorrow then people can get upset but I'd like to think the Met office warnings are based on fact not fiction.

Very good!.. I too feel a lot younger than my age:good:

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.

It is very interesting. More to the circulation than first thought. I said this last night, these easterlies always throw surprises into the mix, especially when low pressure systems develop.

If the radar is to believed, snow coming in to Thames Estuary / N Kent can be traced well back into Holland, so plenty to come upstream

If only it was January (I’ll get my coat!)

I feel the strengthening of the Jetstream has and will make it impossible for it to happen during mid winter. It's more likely to happen either side of it imo.

I never said 4pm, that was another member. I said later in the afternoon. I do agree with the 4pm comment though. Nobody said the whole region would be covered in snow at 4pm, we said the developments would start then, and they are.

Apparently 17:09 is the new start time ❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄❄☺

Surprised at these comments really, radar looks encouraging to me for developments over the next 12 - 24 hours.

Chill everyone, am enjoying Polystyrene Fest down here today, first time since 2009 :D

Not much happening in H.bay either. No better than 2/10 at any point in the last couple of hours.

Still light snow but sticking to everything. Road and paths slowly getting covered. It’ll need to snow for 5 days at this rate to get to 5-10cm lol

Having looked through the thread for that day recently, strikes me that we are broadly on the same timescale here, that evening didn't really get going till 7-8pm, though there was a fair amount of lighter stuff around during the early evening, just like we have now. Of course once it got going, it became quite impressive for a number of hours. I think the time window maybe a little shorter this time round but we will see.

Oooer, a youngster lol. You were a toddler in the 79/19 winter - a good one for cold, less so for snow, but there was some decent snowfall.

Lots of us on here are trying to give a balanced view and insight today. Others are mocking that, which is a shame. I think rather than mocking people, appreciate the input others make as it’s often valuable!
