SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 07/11/2018

Elevation certainly making the difference it seems in London at the moment. Rain with a bit of Sleet at times so far in Greenwich, it should get more interesting in the next hour....

and then again on Thursday....

Absolutely despise northwesterlies for snow. Never ever a success, just a rain fest. 

Unless it’s a stonking northerly, easterlies only really properly deliver here as it’s so low lying. A very very far cry with what we were seeing in late Feb last year.

Stevenage has some nice elevation, been there a few years back and seen some cracking snow.

About 110asl where I am which can make a difference in this kind of scenario. Luton is higher.  2-3cm here now

Looking at the radar I calculate Ely has roughly 2-3 more hours of moderate to light snow, and it’s all now settling, so  optimistic for a good 3-4cm now. Happy days! A good result at last 

Absolutely nothing falling here

Transition to snow now complete in Locksbottom.Temp dropped from 3.4 at 7.30 to 2.2 at 8.30.Maybe just maybe we might get a good covering if temperature continues to drop.Would think favoured spots like Biggin Hill Knockholt Halsted etc will have lying snow by 9pm if intensity is kept up.

Surprisingly, it's already settling on cars in Chelsfield after only a little while.

Snow should clear here within the hour, and should leave a decent dusting on the cars and grass. Think i'll struggle to make more than a cm on the car, but we'll see.

Radar seems to show the front decaying in the Norfolk area.

I am yet to see a flake of sleet or snow in the Fakenham area

Drove from Purley Way to Dorking about 7-7:30 (was there to buy some cheap warm gear for my trip to the Canadian Rockies on Saturday) and it was raining then very very heavily sleeting then snowing at the top of Pebble Hill. Driving down into town and it turned back to sleet but now it’s snow. I think the MetO will be spot on with their ice warning, there’s so much standing water out there - massive puddles on main roads. Be safe tomorrow folks. 

Oooo my ears just pricked up. Whereabouts in the Rockies are you going?

Looks fairly light but has already settled on grass and cars and looks to be starting to settle on the pavement (Surbiton, SW London/Surrey).
