    Providing no major changes, yes should be all snow.

    Also models have moved this back 3hrs. That will be most beneficial for coastal areas.

    Music to my ears!

    Regarding the pivot point, is this front stalling and then moving back south or fizzling out in situ?

    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

    But the uppers are about the same as Tuesday evenings at around -6, maybe the easterly flow might make it more conducive to snow than the SE’ we saw yesterday.

    Dewpoints will save most of us ? Ranging from -2c to -4c throughout, -6 Uppers will get it done

    Morning peeps.. I took a couple of pictures before bed last night. Not much left this morning but there's quite a bit of black ice.

    Fascinated by the models southward correction. It seemed less likely a few days ago but has continued. With still 36 hours to go, its lowered the confidence for northern part of region including my location.

    Ukmo ticked south on its 00z run and 00z keeps the heaviest precip in southern counties. 

    However generally the models are around the same spot they were in last night, all be it with a few difference s.

    Still considerable differences between front strength on the models as well. There is a pause of heavy snow forecast to run west-east but it's uncertain who would get it. General totals from ECM aren't that impressive away from the far south. Broadly 1-2 inches. However some models are more agressive.

    Very interesting how the models have corrected. It seemed a lower % picked southerly option and yet here we are with that seeming more likely. Shows how on global scale its impressive but 50 miles shift, then on ground this has significant impact to who gets what.

    Currently -2.3c and dp of -3.3c . About 2cm on grass and light covering on the pavements but very icy, so MO warning was spot on there. A very crunchy sound when walking to the station.

    That will do just fine. A light covering will be taken with both hands in the Southend locale as we got zilch last night.

    Pic doesn’t do it justice, but we managed to get a 1cm covering on most surfaces. It has ever so slightly melted overnight.

    Absolute death trap outside I couldn't even open the car doors! 

    Tomorrow night looks much better widely 2-5cm with a few getting more in lucky places like kold has said its looking pretty decent

    Ended up with a covering maybe 0.5cm on grass and cars a bit patchy on other surfaces. Temp currently -0.5c dew point -1. Not masses of snow but it was good to see it falling last night and it looks quite pretty this morning.

    suspect I maybe a bit too far north and east to get much from Thursday's event, but looks like it might be good for those in the south of the region. Hoping for a small correction north. 

    Enjoy Thursdays snow whoever gets some.❄️☃️

    There is a sharp cut off into essex - mainly due to intensity not the fact the front doesnt reach you quick enough-

    ECM 42-48 00z optimal areas are sort of Kent / sussex / Surrey / Hamp / Wilts - around 5-6cm

    48-54 as the system fragments & stalls ( tail over London / N kent & the front is up towards North Essex ) then there may well be less on it - so less depth 

    System arriving PM tomorrow is around 30 hours away now so less & less corrections however Essex is certainly on the cusp-

    ECM 48 below V 96 2 days ago just shows how far the model has corrected in 2 days with the -5c line

    Ended up with 2.5 cm's on favoured surfaces like cars and bin lids - so a good old traditional inch. 2cm on grass and less than 1cm/dusting on pavements/roads etc. Not bad and inline with the forecasts.

    Looking to tomorrows event looks like west is best with regards to the SE but it can all change. Another 3-5cm maybe more. Not a bad week ?

    Morning everyone. Hope we are are feeling better.

    Sorry if it offends anyone but I no covering to speak off.

    I see other areas are reporting the same as me......zilch ! woke up at 1am to the sound of rain and then at 6am all I was greeted with outside was a very wet ground with a temp of +1c . did not even have to de-ice the car and roads perfectly ok, I knew it would be a fine margin because its Thanet but I lived in hope , oh well perhaps next time if I can find the switch to shut off the snowshield ?

    It does look like that, so hopefully us coasters will have a better chance than last night. Fingers crossed. 

    In other news travelling on the train, snow line starts around just north of Battle. 2-3cm or so at Stonegate (on cars, not roads or pavements). Imagine Heathfield / Crowbrough and other favoured spots did ok with elevation and away from the sea!

    Bah why did I insist on sea views.
