    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

    recently moved to north London for uni which should hopefully be more favourable for snow than on the sussex coast!

    Well if it rains here at 0.2c Temp and -1.1c Dewpoint then I am giving up Meteorology ?

    looking at models dew points are due to be around 2c at midnight and temps about 3c and i think upper air temp due to rise later too for us on the coast

    Whats is crazy is the Euro4 has well over 12hrs of snow for quite a few of us. Even with just light snow your looking at 4-5 inches with that kind of snow event. Obviously more if it held any sort of intensity.

    Hoping we manage to get even more than that ....

    Guys.. relax.

    This isn't a marginal situation. Away from perhaps the extreme S coast anything falling from the sky will be 100% snow

    I cant relax, here in Hooe we are extreme south coast! Best chance for ages (got nothing from the beast) either too Far East/west/south/north....delete as appropriate. I suspect I will wake up having had it all washed away and wonder what the fuss with the trains to London is about! 

    So hope not......if Cornwall get snowed in and we don’t...so help me I’m moving.......

    Ah ok not looked at that must admit, if thats correct then yes it will be rain. 

    So why did people say for the last few days this will be pure snow all the way. Very strange the way its changed

    I used to do a lot of work in Maclean Virginia (just outside Washington DC) When it snowed there it was epic ! I have just been out for a walk around Chiswick (west london) and the air felt icy cold so perfect for snow

    My head office where I have to visit every few months is in LaCrosse Wisconsin currently -24C just before mid-day.  Remarkably that's a warm-up for them.  A lot of the time you just can't be outside as it's too cold.  Issues with frostbite on exposed skin and cold air affecting the lungs.  Mississippi freezes and people drive on it and go ice fishing.

    Yeah it does get marginal later on, the Euro4 looks good as well.

    IF there is enough intensity in the front left then I think it will keep snowing, its when the front eases a little. Will also struggle I suspect once we get into the afternoon tomorrow. However IF that is anywhere near close then its going to be more notable than previously expected.

    Would easily be enough for an amber upgrade here. I expect one soon based on this and Euro4, plus the obvious strength still being displayed on radar with the front and the fact its not even hinting at weakening yet.

    It's been really cold today,  only managed to get up to 1c. Dew point has been sitting below freezing too.  Waiting patiently for later. 

     

     

    Wow if only lol

    Agreed, too many times has snow been forecast, but Thanet stays green. No elevation plus surrounded by water doesn't help☹️
