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

    We've got about 1cm so far and still snowing heavy - under the dark patch on the radar in Rochester!

    18z Euro4 giving good snowfalls for Hampshire and into Sussex at 48hrs, system should continue to move ENE from this point thanks to the secondary depression in the channel. Could be a very snowy run south of that M4 (not often you get to say that, so I'll take it for now, but no more corrections please!)

    This update does give credence to the idea that the worst may end up south of M4.

    Icon perhaps doing well again, wasnt it south when all the bigger models had it past midlands.

    With 48 hours to go. Hard to be confident of anything at moment.

    Yep ICON has done well with this so far, just like it did with storm Emma. HIRLAM is further north and it also did a great job.

    At some point the adjustments will need to come to an end, I can't imagine much more in the way of southward shifts from here, especially as the set-up starts up in 42hrs, but not impossible for the whole lot to be too far south for even us to get the best of it.

    18z ECM will be out soon so that will see whether it shifts south yet again!

    @kold weather

    Euro 4 18z 48 DPs & T2ms for 6pm

    No wonder widespread snow for the SE

    Not even marginal Steve bar maybe literally the coast. That would be good for delivering higher snow totals as we'd probably have slightly better ratios.

    Much further south and the core of precip will end up not even getting inland, though there is still some leeway for people as far south as we are Steve.

    Nothing marginal about that Steve 

    But then tonight wasn't supposed to be marginal in the East and the opposite ended up occurring.

    Still belting it down with snow but struggling to accumulate. 

    Given latest S trend on the models & latest MO guidance as per EssexWeather Tweet above, I think for once, S of the M4 might be favoured. What was looking like a North Midlands event just a few days ago..

    One slight concern is that if this thing shifts any further South we might all miss out entirely!

    Last report from me.

    Temp 0.8 degrees dew point 0 degrees.

    snizzle. Settled on car roof where not too wet. No covering. On to Thursday so I can experience poor dew points again! Glad others got a decent covering of sorts. And at least my 3 year old got to see falling snow for the first time!

    I personally suspect a slight shift back northwards, though the trend today has been further south for sure. Much further south and the guys in the northern part of the region will be really struggling.

    Erm

    Yes it was 100% Marginal, what forecasts have you been watching for the last few days ??

    If you want to see the Video I shared from Dan yesterday it pretty much went as he said it would, a period of rain with dewpoints not condusive to snow, lowering as the undercutting cold air spread from the NW turning the rain to snow. You were just unlucky to be under the part of the precip that shrank in size and intensity meaning the evaporative cooling process did not affect your part of Norfolk. It might be a good idea to learn the mechanics and processes of weather dynamics before making statements like that
