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

Crazy south change on the GFSp, indeed verbatim this is more of a SOUTH of m4 event on the GFSp 18z.

My gut tells me this may have gone a little too far south this time, especially given the other models aren't quite as far south...yet!

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 

We have changed over to snow and down to 0.8c, but it is very, very wet. Just going to wait and see what happens over the next hour.

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

Really surprised your not doing better Paul over in leigh, I live near Southchurch Park and it is always at least a degree warmer when I leave for work in the morning before I get to belfairs area of leigh. Fine lines tonight but Thursday definitely looks more promising.

apparently, Thursday's will not start as rain and will remain as snow apart from on the coast

According to radar the band is back building in intensity, still not heavy or persistent enough here to settle though at 2c, ground is also very damp too

That's what the MO app is telling me for home, and I've banked it! 😁

Still naff all in east Kent 

Are you still Dover way? It’s about 3c down at town level but 1c up on the hills so it’s been snowing for a while. Need it to drop a bit further for it to lay though.

That would be more or less ridiculous shift!

To be honest I think we have seen the end of thr southerly shifts, I can't see any more reasons to shift it southwards, especially now the models have keyed into the elongation of the front, and I think GFSp may have gone to the extreme on this run (it looks like some of the southerly solutions from the ECM ensembles. I suspect there maybe a slight shift back north, but we will see! I'd rather be to the north of the front than the south for obvious reasons! Also verbatim, but the I'd be more or less in the sweet spot IF the GFSp is correct.

Left work 10.15 in basildon good covering on cars drive home to canvey it's seemed to be thicker falling from sky but cars had less coverage. Been home half hour now and my car not covered as much as it did in 10 mins in basildon- sea air? 0 degrees on the car dash.

Worst south of the M4 corridor?  Not often you hear that!
