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.

    Portsmouth going fully white.

    Judging by direction of bands, this could be the heaviest fall in Reading since 2010. Been snowing pretty steadily since around 6.30. Took a while for the roads and pavements to start getting covered, but everything falling is now laying. Reading half marathon tomorrow; be interesting to see if it goes ahead!

    we are missing nothing . . . the Met Office appear to be missing their marbles having issued an extended Amber alert which has only effected 25 percent of its coverage . . . 

    A disappointment whatever way you look at it. Just goes to show that even though we were well within that Amber zone nothing like what was expected happened. Damn. Worse still the easterly remain tomorrow but just chilling wind and zip else that as gonna be galling East Kent has seen virtually nothing in the last few hours barely a smattering

    Hehe  I guess. It's just we know that it could be years before we see snow again in our region. It's mad to think we are having this so late in March.

    Measured 3cm on bird bath on top of ice still it falls, love seeing it blow about just like the last cold spell who would hand thought that it’s been snowing throughout the day really started at 6am beats March 2013. :)

    Yep, gotta take it by the horn while you can, doesn’t come around too often, first time sledging back in the last cold spell for my 6 year old as it hasn’t snowed enough to do it before then.

    Hardly, I'm in north Surrey and have around a 1cm. Ironically I'm now too far West - I have the full sweep now of being too far North, East, South and West during the last three weeks! Epsom west and north is looking good at the moment.

    Well I've finally caught up with this thread! Started reading on and off at 5pm yesterday at around page 60 and it's taken me over 9 hours to catch up, I must be mad :rofl:

    It's been a good read apart from a few bits of bickering, glad to see some are getting what they want after a slow start. Expected quite a bit due to the amber warnings but was a little disappointed like others, had a heavy band at 7/8am yesterday morning which gave a covering of a few CM away from the pavements and roads, and it's snowed light but consistent throughout the day, slowly covering footpaths, not expecting too much overnight here now on the east coast looking at the radar but Subnday looks promising again!

    Question from page 132 which was never answered so I'll give it my best shot!

    Why on the radar v7 or extra app, whenever I click Europe, the resolution goes really blocky and pixelated?

    I think the NW radar has always been like this, it has since I've been viewing it for the last 5 or so years. I think the UK view is directly from the Met office and the euro view is either from another provider or just simply a lower resolution, it's not an issue just the way the radar is set up. 

    I'll be off for a nap shortly ready for fun and games throughout Sunday, so for everyone doing an all nighter, I hope you get what you're looking for! If not don't pull your hair out, there's still further chances down the road, (even if you have to drive to them) :D

    It’s much heavier compared to what radar has. Pretty surreal looking out my window after little over two weeks ago like a flashback.

      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.
