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.

We’re not in a great place for northerly winds in terms of snow are we?

Sometimes they can deliver, even in early April, 6th April 2008 a good example where parts of the SE saw 5-10cm from snow moving south during the day too. Northerlies generally become the coldest source as we head into April as the continent to the east warms up but arctic stays cold.

Remember it well.Think it was a Sunday.A band of snow worked in during the afternoon.Temperatures in Hastings were -1c at 3pm! Snowfall on the beach and a very decent fall of snow that lasted well into the following day.

Still some grass in the garden covered in snow in the shade of the front north side of the house and also back south side shaded by trees and fence, Sun pretty much made easy work of unshaded snow but temps not high enough today to melt shaded snow.

Drove past Biggin Hill airfield earlier and there were some largish drifts that were piling over into the side of the main road that runs past the end of the runway, where it is very exposed to the wind blowing down the runway from the east.

I think this front sums up the last x2 beasts from here -

Never totally unlucky in terms of missing out but always to North / south / east / west of all the decent ( yellow & orange snow )

Always just persistent averageness !

It's been like Dec 2010 for me, very notable cold but meh in terms of snow amounts. Although having said that, I loved the dry snow, never had that before and never seen proper drifting before either. Plus the number of days of snow falling this month have been pretty impressive.

17cm beast 1

7cm beast 2 sounds a great haul - but compared with the synoptics especially beast 2 up until about T-36/48 when the upper air cold pool was progged to cross Kent I was expecting 20-30cm-

Then radar watching it all just miss ( is being on the periphery ) is bloody annoying !

Hi Nick,

If it were to be a 2 day northerly "toppler", how about The "Dwarf from the North". And remember, if we start to see depressions rolling of the Atlantic, giving a cool, unsettled start to Summer. Will it be the "Pest from the West"? I shall have to patent that. You heard it here first, on Net Weather!!:D

Regards,

Tom.

Early red sky at dawn has quickly given way to some light showery rain, the wind has fallen light and both the temperature and DP are positive. Back to some kind of normality at last down here on the coast of Kent :)

Morning

As the sun didn’t come out yesterday we kept the snow from Saturday and Sunday (all 5cm of it) but sleet here already making light work of what was left on grass and sheds etc.

Some impressive icicles from this which is something I haven’t seen for a few years!

Also, I should say we also didn’t benefit greatly from good snow cover with either event. An inch or so at most from the first beast and two inches (on non concrete surfaces) from this one. Heavy snow was always a few miles to every direction but here! 

Encouraging signs of winters cooling again though as per 2009/2010 etc? We will see...
