Great to see some are finally getting a bit of snow! 

Been hoping the channel stuff would rotate up but it’s just skimming me. The lighter echos aren’t reaching the ground either so now hoping the precipitation in west Kent can hold it together..

Hi Lottie,

I wouldn't give up hope just yet. MeteoGroup are still banging your drum, in East Kent. They are suggesting that ppn will pivot over you and as the flow turns in between N and NE, overnight, East Kent will see further Wintry Showers, well into tomorrow. Ben Rich stated giving a covering, especially over high ground. You did, after all, win my Snow Depth Cup due to your location and elevation!! :oldgood:

Here is the HIRLAM Model's view of the situation, at midnight:

Tom.  :hi:

Billericay got Hammered hard - Was getting hard to get around when we left training, dinner plates coming down at times, back in Leigh On Sea and barely a dusting

Did hammer down here in Eastwood too Paul, roads and paths were covered temporally all melting now! 

Still a nice suprise to see this winters first snowfall and I’m sure it won’t be the last 🤞🏻

Just drove down and up Westerham Hill. At the top, by Shampan, it was coming down heavily, and visibility in full beam headlights was low. About half way down Westerham Hill it became quite sleety, and at the bottom was mostly rain. On the way home, clear at the bottom and all white at the top. Back in Halstead it’s 0.1c, foggy and still snowing lightly. If the skies clear, then it is going to be a mess in the morning, as it is wet out there.

Yep as others have said I have never seen flakes that big in all my life they was the size of my hands . Anyway this lot has now cleared through here now the stuff further north west seems to be dissipating but I do to my suprise have a light covering on the cars and grass left over which will no doubt now freeze . 

I left a very snowy Uxbridge where the snow chose to fall as I was giving a 2-hour lecture, but picking up my son from Jujitsu at Chessington CC the pavements and car park seem to have cleared with the car temp showing 2 degrees. The motorways and A3 stayed clear but I did get gritted! Will we get any more from the Cheshire Gap streamer I wonder.

If you get a chance go to Billericay tomorrow, the difference will blow your mind, just goes to show getting stuck under a heavy precip band for an hour and having 200ft extra elevation really counts in these Set-Ups

Non event for most people. Couple of cm of wet snow doesn’t float my boat!

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:

 

Good Evening Tom!  Yes, gutted that Biggin Hill was not the sweet spot it so often is...but hey, cannot grumble about something I cannot control!  The afternoon run up and eager anticipation made a nice change (did try and get some work done while hopping between forums and various weather apps / forecasts / websites lol).  Think ice could be be a real issue in the morning, although NetWeather says snow for Biggin Hill from 3am until lunch time tomorrow....if only! I refuse to believe that you have missed the only snow of the winter whilst napping......that really would sum up the worst winter ever. Fingers and everything else crossed for more cold, ice and 'snow producing' conditions for us all!!

So close here but no cigar. Literally all snow a few miles west of here. Only drizzle here even with elevation. Glad to see so many people get a snow event. I did think the SE would get snow, just not so much. Hopefully it’s the start of 6 weeks of snowy cold ❄️😁

Great photos guys.

Good to see our region (though not me this time) get in on the action, even in a North Westerly.

Sure they’ll be some more opportunities to come..
