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

    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....

    Yeah may be a surprise here on the coast but got feeling temps and dew points will go up again in few hours and i think the upper air temps are meant to rise later,but we will see

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

    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

    My thoughts too, I’m near hollingbury and due to go to hove but back before 9. You are right about the mm of snow causing chaos....

    It was still chaos up Hollingbury way yesterday from Tuesdays 2cm where it didn’t melt and turned to ice. I’m up that way now. Waiting...?

    So, there is no 1 ideal scenario here- we cannot please all-

    A faster system which is what we have will bring a less moderated front which is great

    A fast pivot means the stall out could well be North Kent, South London North Surrey...

    But as ever 4-6 hours away theres still some margin there!

    I don’t know about other areas of the country but it’s no joke here when it snows even moderately - the transport infrastructure really, really struggles with ANY accumulation of the white stuff particularly around London - presumably mostly down to the density of people trying to complete their commute at the same time. I dread what the trains will be like later particularly - and wouldn’t envy anyone trying to navigate the road network after 9pm...

    EURO4 is a big upgrade for London and surrounding area snow all the way till 12 in the afternoon tomorow

    However we can't discount how marginal it'll be close to the estuary/cotsal areas.

    Snow has made it almost all the way across the channel. First snow for the south east looks like falling over Seaford to Eastbourne and the surrounding south downs.

    Another blob of snow is developing down the M3 near Bordon. Apart from Devon, all the rain has now turned to sleet in the SW over higher ground and away from the Welsh coast wales looks amazing.

    :blink2:Looks like the French flag there, so is that French snow that we are going to get then?:oldangry:

     

    A BREXIT goodbye present from them maybe?:oldlaugh:

    Ignore the stuff in front of the main band on radar I'm pretty certain that an anoprop as nobody is reporting anything falling under it.. 

    Arpege is well off it doesn't have the front touching the south coast till 6pm

    Yeah, no issues there mate, so baffled as to why pretty much every model = snowless for us.

    That ties in with Met Offices mention of rain for Brighton in the early hours of Friday morning

    Radar says light snizzle 10 minutes ago, nothing to be seen! Can’t be long before touchdown now

    I suspect lighter echoes would evaporate before reaching the surface. Something you see a lot in the US with PPN moving in to a drier airmass.

    The latest Euro4 is a chart of utter beauty if you live in London. 

    We shall see.
