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.

    Guys, is this an extra snow? None of the forecast channels and website mentions this!!! I am happy and confused. It’s been snowing really good in Brighton but metoffice doesn’t show this

    Met Office radar does!

    That’s no good it misses me :D with the last beast. This was certainly a Streamer a strangely orientated one too. Early hours of Wednesday 28/02/18 had some of the heaviest snowfall I can ever recall.

    the good thing with streamers is, they can be wider than that and vary in direction to get everyone in a big area!:wink:

    I've had a slight dusting since dark, which was a suprise.

    Paths and Roads dry but cars have been dusted and our previous cover on all other surfaces has survived rather well.

    i've done a little paint job on your map to show an example of what a full-flow thames streamer would look like (a bit like 2010 from memory)

    Yes, that's very much how FEB.2009 was, with thunder snow. No this is nothing like as potent, mainly because differential between 850 temps and Estuary temps, aren't as great, therefore less instability. We could still get a slight covering though, if persistent.

    Regards,

    Tom.

    but will it be cold enough for snow down here from the north? you might have to  clean your bucket for six hours this time and do a snow dance. are you up for this task?

    lol does the dance involve wearing a bra on your head, by April i doubt it would be cold enough for settling snow even if I polish my bucket after cleaning it for 6 hours. It would have to be exceptional, not the bucket, but the cold.

    We maxed out at 1.3 this morning about 11am but since then the temp has gradually dropped falling below zero about 4 and is currently -0.5.Although not officially an Ice Day flipping cold for this time of year.Light snow started falling here about 3.45 with the odd moderate burst and is still light giving a light covering everywhere and everything looking picturesque(maybe 0.5cm at most).Much as i would love to see a Thames Streamer set up i think it is unlikely but still think this light snow will continue until the early hours(HIRLAM has it continuing till about 7-8am!!)

    This will be the last snow for us from this current cold snap although tomorrow will still be very cold with a max of only 2 or 3 for most.Thereafter a steady rise in temps during the week with temps 8-10 by Weds and pretty much that level for rest of week.

    Maxed out at-0.4 here, then went down to -1.3 unfortunately now temp going back up, currently -0.4 again. I think your temp will start rising too.

    you are just looking for excuses. we have had snow from a northerly before in April. its very rare,but so is an easterly twice in March.Now get that damn bra on your head and starting doing the funky chicken dance aka snow dance  hehe. there is a guide online on how to do it.

    Are there historical radars from way back? I’d love to see the radar for Jan 1987. Think that’d be epic.

    Here's a picture of the big spider, don't look if you are spiderphobic.

    Its funny, when Southernman was alive I used to be petrified and made him take them outside but since I've spent so long alone, I'm just like, oh another big spider, hmmm leave it, no worries. There must be half a dozen like that i have seen today in different rooms, no its not the same one all the time.Time was, I woud have screamed my head off seeing this one, I didn't even flinch at it.

    Edit to say thats not magnified and i took the photo from some way back, it really was big.
