Best of luck to the SE gang tonight ?

Evening All, I hope other Members have no objection but just wanted to post up a Wintry Slideshow, for our Kentish Members. But I hope all Members will enjoy these very Wintry photos, from around

Best of luck yo you guys and girls in the South. Don't give up hope if it starts as rain. It rained here for about 2 hours now it's heavy snow. You should be good for a few cms also as it's very heavy

Temp and DP dropping fast now in moderate rain in Reading.

The rain is definitely proceeding the radar at the moment. It's been raining for at least 45 minutes here but showing as clear still for this postcode

You need to get a new radar! This was 30 mins ago

It's near the Thames right now and in the middle of a city. Don't worry too much

bbc national forecast graphics (yes I know) at lunchtime for this region were less encouraging than yesterday and certainly showed more rain than snow and of course they covered their backs by not ruling out a covering of wet snow particularly on higher ground.

Amazing how so many people keep mentioning 'cold' persisting on the model thread and BBC forecasters saying lows running into cold air...punch me when 'cold' arrives as today got up to 6.3c only fractionally below normal for the time of year and yesterday only marginally colder, these daily maxes are just not noteworthy!

As for tonight really not expecting anything in my neck of the woods...don't mean to be a killjoy but just saying it as I see it and I've recorded winters since 1983.

Yea i agree.. Below 200ft mix i reckon.. Above that yea maybe some settling, its because we really had nixie here all winter ?

Neil you should know better than to expect otherwise. Our location is crap for snow. It will be rain mate

You can't get snow with a 1c dew point. I had heavy rain at 1.5c two days ago.

Oh yes you can. Here's a ready-reckoner chart which I've used for many a year - the source site for the raw data was posted a while back. (It shows the percentage chance of snow and I did it after a thread on TWO years ago where I suggested that if the temperature and dewpoint added together came to zero or less, there was a good chance of snow. Turns out that it's a good rough estimate.)
