SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 03/03/2018 onwards

Streamers are the holy grail if you happen to be in a location where they're favourable, you can have large amounts of snow in a very short period of time. 

I wonder how much of this is going to settle given temperatures have been in the mid-teens the last few days.

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.

That was a concern of mine. I’ve seen heavy snow accumulate before and then thaw for the ground upwards. Hopefully the air temps of around freezing will temper that a little bit.

I would imagine a Thames streamer would be great for your location Daniel. I lived in Greenwich for 2 years and it was generally rubbish for snow. Although they were rubbish winters generally (2014/5 & 2015/6)

The original band of ppn looks like it’s breaking up with a secondary band incoming that is all snow. Maybe the first band will pick up some convection over land as it sinks south west. None of this stuff looks particularly exciting yet, although north midlands and Yorkshire doing nicely tonight

Greenwich near yep although strangely last beast I think I cropped a lot more weird isn’t it, it was atrocious for five years I had nothing but dusting it was depressing. From 13/14 up to the daddy beast.  :D 

This winter and spring is going down as memorable I’ve seen more snow than the last four winters combined x10. It is incredibly rare for London to be looking at significant snowfall mid March and not even the wet variety in general powdery snow is nonexistent most of the time so for what 17-18th March. Soaking it in. 

Also drifting snow likely!.... so very impressive if short.

Hello Southeasteners! Today (Saturday) my daughter is going on a coach day trip to Bletchley Park. We live in South Gloucestershire. Can anyone advise what the weather is likely to be en route as we are slightly panicking! Thank you very much. ?

Reckon it will be fine, but a bit of a nowcast situation. The more disruptive stuff should be a bit south of your daughters route

Has the snow moved more north???

Not sure - there was an amber warning for up north too so it wasn’t unexpected. The radar doesn’t look that great for our region for tonight but it could change

Thank you Stu, that is reassuring! Our knowledge of Southeastern geography is sadly not very good and as Nweatherers are a fine bunch of folk I thought I'd pay a visit and ask! ??

In the last lot of snow my other daughter was heavily pregnant, in Somerset, and gave birth to a beautiful baby boy at 2am on 2nd March, at the height of the blizzard. Whilst I love snow, it is happening at inconvenient times lately!

Thank you again and love to all in the SE. ??

I do not understand why you are downbeat. Our region is not expected to see snow until roughly 06:00 hrs & that's when the fun begins

Wonderful 18z fax chart update, with a classic Thames streamer in place by this point:

Suspect HIRLAM may not be far off from the mark again but I think we will have to wait till 15z to have a good idea of which model has a good grip. GFS to be fair is also along a similar route, but not as potent.

Beautiful. That's a streamer straight up the Thames Estuary, funnelling into Greater London and beyond.

Not really downbeat. Most of the action was always going to be tomorrow.

Not on the radar but there is a very fine drizzle here in South Woodham, the wind feels fresher and the temperature has dropped a little more rapidly in the past hour. Still 4 degrees but feels colder.
