Dewpoints over in France and Belgium still 4-5c - Should that not be lower by now ? 

Maybe the drier air will come with the uppers which are coming more from a Holland / Denmark direction

NW radar suggests sleet in the Norwich area now. Anyone able to verify?

I am in Beccles, Near the Norfolk/Suffolk border and there is definite sleet. Winds got up too. Drove through fog between here and Ipswich about 6.30pm

I suspect the the temps and dew points behind the front will drop sharply. Been out in the garden again and it’s definately colder than before albeit cloudy. I’ll need to put my jeans on next time

According to Wunderground temp up to 6.7 (from 6.4). Suspect that the cloud cover is responsible

Temp down to 6.7 now as at 11pm so still got a way to go.If the latest HIRLAM nails this "snow event" like the last one then i think more of the SE thread will see more significant snow than Beast 1 which was more a hit and miss affair with the nature of the streamers that set up.Will be fascinating to see how the next 24-36 hrs develop.

I only managed a max snow depth of 5cm with beast 1, so won’t take much to beat it. Ground temps might bring in a degree of marginality as far as accumulating snow is concerned

I was exactly the same here but my mate in West Kingsdown got 15cms and that is only 7 miles from me.The only significant snow(3cms) i got from Beast 1 was the snow that fell from 2pm-5pm on Friday 2nd March and that was all completely washed away by the end of Saturday night!!
