Heavy blowing snow here by the thames for the last half an hour or so just a shame it's not really settling such a waste although it's looking great for later when temps drop more

The dream scenario really for tonight.. persistent snow showers along Thames corridor and organised snowfall from S from the wave a lot of snow could fall in places.

Extremely light snow here in ramsgate, more of a token gesture than anything else.

Yes hun. We left at 10am by time we got to Bognor snow was falling agsin was probably our best quickest drive down as no one was on the roads lol. Our minibus driver just made it back to Essex before it hit again. We had a fab weekend was all melted by the time we got back on the Monday. Butlins cancelled their skegness and minehead weekends so we were really lucky that Bognor didn't get hardly anything xx

After a lull here, now snowing again. Radar shows, ppn " filling in", as northern band catches up, with southern band.

http://www.meteox.com/h.aspx?r=&jaar=-3&soort=loop1uur

Current dew points, around the region. They should continue to fall, from the east, during the day, aiding the snow to settle, hopefully!!

Tom.

Reminding me of March 2013 here at the moment. Then we Ended up with 5cms on grass and cars but struggled to settle on pavements and roads. Be interesting to see if it settles to a greater extent later when the amber warning kicks in.
