    We are left with frozen slushy snow on patio table, cars and patches of snow on the grass this morning. I was happy to see at 6.30 this morning Meto gave us in rainham Kent  two snow flakes over a period of 4 hours tomorrow evening but an hour later it’s down to one snowflake and sleet.... hey ho, I’m sure it will change hourly....

    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

    Beeb has now taken away the snow icon for me tomorrow. In fact it's suggesting no more snow at all.

    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

    Thoughts on how ICON has done, it had a more southerly option at T96 and was considered perhaps at that stage an outside chance. Seems to have done quite well for past 2 events.

    It's funny how the MO one symbol summary for tomorrow is just white cloud, but you look at the detail at it gives 8/10 hours of snow!

    As your probably all aware I’m right on the coast ?  I’ve heard that it’s dropped south tomorrow is that better for me???

    Yes, still marginal right at the coast but much better chance of snow than there was yesterday.

    My close proximity to the Thames scuppered my chances last night, by the time the temps dropped inc dew points the moisture had run out. Only 5m ASL so systems from the east are better for my locale. However tomo looks a lot better chance as we are already in the cold.

    While I'm waiting for the 00z ECM run to roll out, thought I'd play about with some more Family photos!!

     

     

    Hi Tom,

    I'm sorry to hear about your son. I hope he's doing as well as can be expected. 

    As I spend more and more time in this thread, I realise its not just about the weather. Its a real community with people who have real lives. Thanks for all your posts both weather related and personal. You're one of the reasons I keep popping back in here. (that and to talk about Steve Murrs sausage)

    All the best.

    EDIT: In bold ?

    When I lived in S Essex in marginal setups it would be common to get snow but not settle. About 10 miles inland and the ground would be white with snow!

    A slight covering of a cm on most surfaces, everything frozen solid, excellent seeing reports and pics from the region, far from a bust, on to the next.❄️

    In Norwich we awoke to snow on cars and rooftops but roads and paths appear at best slushy but mostly just wet but I fear it's going to be ice. Anyway first sticking snow of winter here.

    Very slight dusting here in Ipswich too far east in these set ups despite what some models were projecting. Southern counties and Kent look great again for Thursday but not expecting anything here - geographically hamstrung again!

    Hopefully there’ll be more chances left this winter but was nice to snow falling after a long long wait!

    Still evidence of a dusting here. Wrt Thursday, most models now keep the heaviest precipitation to the south and west of NW London, albeit still a few cms. At least it's more likely to now stick around a bit longer rather than melt Friday morning!

    Beeb forecast for the Isle of Wight looks disappointing (yet again). My thoughts are allready turning towards spring time and warmth. Been another frustrating winter.

    UKMO has tomorrows system in a similar position as the ECM though the area of heavier precip stretchs further north a little, to the north of M4 before quite a quick weakening.

    Surrey- where about are you mate?

    kirkwood has gone for it on BBC breakfast, all snow and 2 to 5cm across the region, although i suspect 5cm will be more for high ground on Thursday, after that, possibly 10c next week☹️
