    So hows it looking for Hastings and East Sussex as a whole?

    You will be more lucky inland than I on the seafront for sure! Shall find out in an hour or so.

    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

    What on earth is going on with the radar precip is all over the place with intensity and false returns

    Looks like the band is touching down soon in Brighton, although the strange thing is we are currently under light precipitation according to the radar, yet nothing is falling

    I recall that previously, precipitation has intensified over the English Channel before it hits the South Coast,  I haven't seen that referenced here and am intrigued whether that would or would not be the case today and if not, why not?  Any advice? 

    Would it require colder air passing over warm channel?

    Can anyone confirm if that radar echo just north of the main band is really there? It looks very oddly shaped and a bit out of place! 

    I would imagine the met office will issue an amber warning for the M23 area inc Gatwick Airport soon..

    This should hopefully help proceedings this eve.

    In short - Strongly negative vertical wind velocity helps promote unstable air and cloud formation, producing more ppn....in theory...

    View over Poole Harbour from a hotel near Sandbanks. As it zooms in to the "mid-zoom" (you'll see what I mean) you can make out it has started snowing there at sea level.

    It's coming!

    Band is still heading north at a fair clip and IMPORTANTLY the LP is still wrapping itself and moving eastwards. Every bit further east it gets is better for this region, especially those on the boundary.

    About 90 minutes ahead of the models...that means we have gained 90 minutes more time where the front is at peak strength which pushes everything 90 minutes worth further north I suspect.

    Still no signs of flakes or anything else here half a mile from the coast of Brighton, ominous clouds in the channel

    We know it’s coming ..... it’s just about how far it gets and how much is left when it arrives !

    All models very keen on keeping the Essex coastline snow free. This is odd though as the air coming in to the south coast has more of a sea track than that between France and Essex. I'm hoping for a surprise covering overnight but not expecting it....

    Liam Dutton just mentioned pivoting earlier than expected so more likely to remain further south now.

    The good news is it is a fair bit ahead of where both the 00z and 06z suites had this system (I mean a solid 2-3hrs ahead) which obviously buys us more time with the frontal system before it starts to weaken.

    Also that low pressure in  the channel is still trundling nicely to the east.

    Down to 0.9c here, going to be pretty close to 0c once the front arrives.

    Also, the 2nd band (which a lot of the models are now keying into more) looking nice and defined at the moment as well.

    What’s your thoughts on Liam’s point above though re it pivoting earlier ?

    If you live in woodingdean/hollingbury or at elevation somewhere i’d be rather cautious with how far you go...I’m sure by 9pm if there’s more you than a MM of snow it’ll be CHAOS and public transport will be buggered! 

    I live near the race hill and I’m in town till 9 so I’m anticipating a possible nightmare getting home

    Anyone noticed the back edge is really getting a move on. Its already cleared the channel islands and is coming across the channel. When do we think the front will slow its movement north ?

    By who? Yamkin ?? 

    And  an amber warming means ‘take action’ .... 2-5cms isn’t requiring that - surely ???

    No I meant I thought the METO were quite good at doing the warnings when they think they are needed so they probably haven't done an amber warning for us yet because they don't think it's necessary?

    I mean I love the enthusiasm and excitement on here and it's the same every year but I'm not sure that our area is going to get the sort of totals that are going to warrant an amber warning personally, of course I'd love to be wrong so I don't have to go in for a work meeting tomorrow ?
