Looks great Steve, good job!

Hopefully you'll be ready for a top up on Thursday!

Raining here in Clacton with.... Maybe.... just occasional signs of sleetiness. Doubt we'll get any laying snow here tonight.

Yh not too bothered about tonight, most of it would have been gone by 10am anyways. 

Its still 80/20 in favour of rain here.

I think until the event is over and we look at what has caused this wedge of land to not see anything but heavy rain versus snow we just cant say. Could be a number of things, onshore flow, rate of precip, dont know at this stage

Over for all se or just for your neck of woods.

Actually scrap that all proper snow now, not heavy but looks nice in the Lamp Post across the street

ARPEGE and ICON both hint at more marginality close to the coast than was forecasted earlier today, though both ultimately still turn it to snow. Could do with both of those just being a couple of hours later IMBY, but both are good runs, though ICON has more snow.

Now the GFS has finally fallen inline, the 18z WRF now also showing a decent snow event down here as well.

We've gone from rain to drizzle and everything is soaked.

Down to 0.9c and very wet.

 

should I hold out and see if it sticks or give up and move on?

Must be using the male measurement scale..

Kents excluded ... maybe we do need to split. Its so confusing as to who is where with snow it covers such a large area and densely populated as well. Even with desktop site its hard to keep any track of locations.

Was just finding it interessting that when the Cold Undercut occured there was a narrow strip of Dewpoints that stayed around 1-2c from Mid Kent through SE Essex and up into Suffolk and Norfolk probably brought about by the SE Onshore flow which kept it as rain longer in those areas. The map that was shon earlier shoed it brilliantly - Dont know where your neck of the woods is as you dont have a location on your profile

Kold, do you think the Beeb are undercooking the snow depths for our area. Just had me down for 2-5cm ?

Really poor showing over our area - haven’t seen any flakes for about 2hrs now.

This was never anything to get particularly excited about since all the downgrades yesterday morning. Don’t even reckon much for Thursday - if it isn’t gonna settle and hang about for at least 24hrs or so then I’m not really too interested - may as well stay mild to help out the wildlife 🤷‍♂️

You never know but it sounds like we’re in the same boat. It’s raining here but someone up the road about 3 miles away is getting snow, I’m pleased for them @snowrye but it’s still a bit frustrating

Interestingly the GFS P fails to progress the front past the southern midlands, with a longer period of snow for us.

Thanks for putting in your location, just to confirm was not talking about the radar earlier sorry for the confusion Sarah. Crossed wires I think

Thursday looks a lot better for all the region as much less marginal unless you are within 5-10 miles of the Coast. And it should be more solidly 2-5cm across the board.

Interesting night of weather watching and hearing about others getting snow. Never expected ought in London. 

For those like me that got SFA, there is still plenty of winter left. And this is pretty much the way the Met have been forecasting these situations for a while now in their medium range....before the main event(s) in February. 

Good times ahead folks. 😁

Another gooner here going to the game tonight. Hoping that Arsenal can do it on a cold, wet Tuesday night in north London 😬

Turns out they could, just about. The snow was the highlight of the game tbh.
