    I'm trying to convince my wife that we need to move to the Kent downs - I'll use your photo as evidence if that's okay! ??

    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

    Had a bit of melting during the night, but it is wonderful to see, I just wish we could have a prolonged spell of winter, with frequent snow, that doesn't melt, give me a north easterly, or easterly with a biting wind chill any day of the week

    A snow ice mess this morning. Not enough for a snowman but thick wadges of ice on the car this morning. But nice to wake up and still see a whiteout.

    Always good to get any kind of snow but last night didn’t scratch my itch. It was too wet and looked like a thaw 

    This morning it was interesting to see how much difference elevation makes. I live in a relatively low level for my area so I often see cars driving past from up the road with far more snow on them. Last night cars had settled snow on them before it had started to settle outside my house. 

    What was different was my walk to the station. Just a few minutes walk but very slightly downhill - barely noticeable. Even that short distance made a huge difference in the snow. We had about a cm in favoured spots but there was little if anything just 2 mins walk away. 

    On the train, the other side of Croydon there is nothing at all, just a frost on roofs.

    Lets hope tomorrow gives us a nice surprise and deeper cover than is forecast. 2010 is the last really good snowfall I’ve had

    Slight difference on Icon. The northern flank which was forecast by the 00z version of icon is no longer present on the latest update. that then makes the boundary a lot more of a harder m4 south line. Main front still broadly in same location.

    don't want that to slip much further South because even the south part of the region might struggle otherwise!

    Need to watch this carefully as the last couple of runs have slipped it further South too, this mornings 06z will be worth watching for signs of this. If it didn't get North of London I can sense a lot of disappointment on here but that's life!

    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???

    I’m similar part of the world and, yes, I think it’s generally positive as less of a “push” of milder air north.

    Also may mean precipitation is heavier which may help.

    I could be completely wrong of course!

    Staying realistic about tomorrow - some may say ‘downbeat’ but I don’t want to fritter away too much precious time looking for snow which may never happen - however saying that looks like we may be in the sweet spot.

    Keen to start to try and work out the likely timings of this - as I think I’m supposed to be doing a run from Guildford to north London first thing round the M25 Friday morning - so the nature of the roads come 7am Friday morning is of great interest!

    Remarkable really. With 30 or so hours still to go, wonder where it will end up. Places like Darlington were in original warning from METO. Thats got to be 200 miles up North from M4.

    Just looking in the mod thread and looking at the general trend- do you feel theres a chance it could slip a bit further South Nick and lose some of its intensity? And what's your thoughts about the extent of the snow potential on Saturday - again is it looking like mostly it'll be the South East of the region? 

    Don’t think there will be too much wriggle room now, may be a tad further south if any change, think it will arrive heavy along southern counties then perhaps tend to fragment and weaken a bit as it heads north of London before sliding SE Friday morning. Saturday’s snow only showing on EC and UKMO atm, not GFS op / para or ICON, so uncertainty whether this will happen

    is the band supposed to slip back southeast after its northern extent

    About 1 cm on the Essex Riviera last night...soon melting in the sun, at least we had something but that's about all I can say.

    I think Kent and E/W Sussex may end up being the sweet spot for the largest totals tomorrow night into Friday morning, looking at the various model output so far this morning.

    Yes Nick if you’re south of London looking potentially excellent further north in the region expect little more than a dusting (sadly trending the wrong way for us in the north east). Outside chance of something Saturday morning...

    Morning all :)

    No snow here in lowland East London but a very cold morning with ice and frost on cars parked outside.

    Snow prospects for me - not sure. I have some hope for tomorrow but more for Friday/Saturday as the low edges past the meridian and we get a much colder feed.

    We'll see.

    Blimey, any more vast corrections South and it'll end up in France!! The Meto fax chart has the front bushing the South Coast and not getting much further North... not looking good today. A tad premature but I am getting the sense many of us in EA/North of London may have to write off Thursday if these charts materialise.

    Just checked a few hours later it literally inches a little past London on eastern side.
