    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 been out along the sea front in Brighton for the last dog walk of the day.  Cold and breezy, the tiniest dusting of sugary snow on cars.  Despite the wind the sea is flat and still.  Normally here in the flat we get the wind off the sea, steaming in from roughly WSW, picking up rain and throwing it against the old sash windows. If we are lucky it's the drama of hail stones   Tonight, with the wind from the east, it's quieter but colder, so without the usual WSW gale we can properly hear the traffic on the coast road as the tide ebbs.  Rather lovely.

    I'm back. a finger of precipitation has fed northwards from the channel, of all directions and sources, proving that a low formed today over london and has  slipped south westwards, or has re-emerged there.  The finger is bringing snow with it to parts of west sussex and surrey. There is a similar finger further east, in Kent.  Update a3 13:43: those fingers of snow are expanding and one has reached north to london

    Just about fizzling out now, now too bad considering we are within 4 days of the spring equinox - nice icicle hanging from the street lamp and the cars an neighbour's garden have a good sprinkling - I'd say about 5cms in depth - temp -1.6, humidity 88%, snow back to light now after a coupla 3 hours of fairly moderate.

    Considering I  was expecting very little I have a nice covering outside with everywhere white including the paths.

    I know some are disappointed but the lack of snow for some is not a surprise to me.

    Apart from the slim chance of the eastern edge of the low coming up from the France, I don't see where I can get the apparent forecast of snow until 10am tomorrow!

    Wow, you turn away from the radar for 20 minutes and it pops into life! Albeit to the west, but it just goes to show that anything could happen!!

    Lee, SE12, by the way

    Drifting badly on the exposed roads in this area, about 4-5cm here in Great Ryburgh but the snow is blowing off the fields. 

    Local police advising people to keep off the roads.

    Rather unexpected to be honest

    A slight dusting here now.

    I, like many, saw more snow last time. I can't really complain if that, as it looks likely is my lot,, to get any snow, let alone powdery snow, at this of time of year is incredible.

    Hemel snowfall same as Watford depth and also now back to light snow. Out of interest and for contrast....using the old Fahrenheit scale because it better emphasises the difference  .....the temperature at 2.0pm yesterday was 55 degrees whereas today at 2.0pm it was 29 degrees!!

    Really struggling as to why the SE amber forecast was set to where it is considering no modals that I have looked at suggested that it would occur. It seems that Hirlam precip predictions will be more accurate.

    Been cold and more importantly snow chasing and lurking since 2010, joined here proper this year 2018. This year have witnessed the most incredible weather synoptics possibly ever. Had two ‘Beasts from the East’!!!!! (That’s flipping two!) and all I have to show for it is a 4cm dusting 2 weeks ago and less than half a centre meter tonight. I know I’m in Surrey, so I never expected much anyway. However, sat under an Amber Warning ⚠️ expecting to see enough snow to take my 3yr old on his first ever sledging trip in a new sledge!  I have finally woken up to this! If these were the best conditions for snow of a generation then I’m done!!!! I’ll put my head down, work hard and maybe just maybe I can earn enough money to take him on a winter holiday. But I will no longer put myself through this torture. I’m done with snow chasing in the UK now. Time to come back to reality with where I live (geographically) and why I chase snow! Good night everybody. Maybe touch base with you all in 2030 when this mini ice age is supposed to hit us! Whatever you get tonight enjoy the snow! Big love! ❤️

    is it over? Can I go to bed now? Not feeling too cold at all on the walk back from the pub, plenty lamppost snow but no depths to speak of. Maybe tomorrow morning will bring a surprise, but I won't hold my breath, this is the best I could manage tonight:

    I think I must be lucky I’m sitting under one of those fingers. Just stuck my head out the door, snowing harder than it has all day but not laying.

    Just the way it goes sometimes. Hirlam once again has been great with picking up new trends before other models.

    Interestingly the GFS has slowed things down, as has some other models which may allow a longer spell of light to moderate snow over the west of the area.

    You watch that will probably be wrong now. Hirlam has done so well, but watch it bust and not give us a thing!

    If it comes off probably a quick 2-3cms, it moves through quite quickly unfortunately.

    I know it'll be short lived, but it's really building to the south of London.
