Quite bizarre to see both a convergence zone and front so close together over the se corner  on the T24 hours UKMO fax chart.

Normally the front cloud sheet inhibits convection. Could be some big snow totals and some parts might do better than the previous easterly.

Not looking promising for Oxford City trip to Welling today! 

Hello Mark,

I trust you are well. Good luck today. We are away at Truro. Six of our supporters have been walking in relays since last Saturday's away game at Hungerford to today's game at Truro. They are doing so for sponsorship to add funds to the supporter's club coffers as well as some of our local charities. Looking at the forecast for Cornwall it looks to be touch and go if they arrive before the bad weather catches up with them. After all their efforts I only hope the game is not called off.

As far as the weather here is concerned it is cloudy, but the snow has just stopped for a few minutes but it looks like it will start up again any minute. The grass, trees and roofs are all covered  in snow but the roads and pavements are mainly clear. An interesting day of weather watching ahead I am sure.

Kind regards

Dave

According to the Meteociel site, looks around -1/0c, for you at the moment.

Worth noting the convergence line shown on the 00z Sunday FAX chart is at the EXACT same angle as the Feb 09 streamer, through S.London,out into Surrey near Guildford then through Hampshire (broadly along with the amber warning, may need to be slightly 'fattened')

Moderate snow in RP.

And yes, it's started to settle on cars (just the soft tops mind!)

I think the main action will come later as the wave from the south engages with the trough through the Thames Valley. Some areas will see a big surprise from this!

In the last hour, 2 inch long icicles have grown from nothing  along the  edge of my shed roof. Unbelievable for late March in daytime.
