The snow in my back garden and front garden lawns are both turned white with snow. The pavements are clear of any snow.  I live in South Ockendon which is in the South West of Essex.

Bit gutted, had to retire to bed three and  a half hors ago for my obligatory afternoon nap. Was up at 5.15 this morning and still suffer from extreme fatigue after Haemorrhagic Stroke, in Sept.2015. Was falling asleep at the keyboard as reports of rain was turning to snow, in West London. Have spent the last hour reading 10 pages of your reports. Glad to read reports of snow falling in my home Borough of Bromley. all the way down from Crystal Palace to Biggin Hill. But really surprised to hear that SCRAT and SNOWBOB don't have a covering, in Biggin Hill, I'd have thought that would've been a "shoe-in"!!

Also pleased to see Yamkin's report of snow in Croydon, where I spent the last 20+ years of my working life.

When I got to MARK's (my near neighbour, here in Lee, S.E.12) report of snow falling, I stuck my head out of the front door, although the road and pavement is wet, I can make out a slight dusting on grass, cars and bins. Really wasn't expecting much if any, here in South Lewisham, especially at the very modest elevation of 41 metres!! Will be really p--d off if that's the only snow of the Winter and I've missed it!! :oldangry:

Regards,

Tom.   :hi:

Looks like there has been a lot more snow around than was first expected by the models. Sadly here we got screwed out of it by the drier slot that was in place on the back part of the trough, just as the trough started to widely transition to snow. I probably needed a delay of 1-2hrs to have had snow as the system was just turning sleety.

Ah well, you win some and lose some, and this was a lose for me, but a big win for plenty of others, congrats and keep sending in those lovely photos!

It's frustrating, those that have it have done very well unexpectedly, guess there is still the chance of something overnight but best not to expect anything this time round. On to the next opportunity and hopefully we'll do better next time around.

Well it only stayed white briefly under the heaviest part of the burst, the majority of the snow has already melted.

I had higher expectations, Tom, but I think we all do. Disappointed, considering how some relatively local coverings have been, but that's weather (and our location) 

It was nice to see it falling, if nothing else. I'm sure it won't be the last, and I'm still looking to the NW tonight, with hope.

We will prevail, Tom 🙂

Just stopped here, hour and and a half of continuous snowfall, can't complain. Managed to get a covering of wet snow in spite of it being so wet with rain before 7pm.:oldsmile:

Patience. It's barely started. Beast from the East didn't strike until March.

Good evening peeps 😊

Had quite a prolonged period of snow here in Walthamstow had a good covering on the pavements and the cars. Stopped here now just been out and all I can hear now is drip drip everywhere so it is melting quick.

i was not expecting anything as much as this here today so took me by surprise and this is without an Easterly. 

Wish you all a lovely evening

kind regards 😊😊😊😊
