Nothing to report yet from Hailsham.

For what it’s worth feels a lot colder than Tuesday night.

No snow here in Three Mile Cross. The netweather radar has an issue: it's been showing some non-existent PPN ahead of the main front for quite a while.

Same here. Good job we have snacks for our snow/lamp post watch duties. 😊

He is still being very tight on the accumulations.. always anti counting past 10cm

Yes and the sad thing is I have a friend who can get the data from UKV charts etc which he has licence too as well and that is painting a daunting picture for some locations that would blow his 5cm out of the water. Not in my neck of the woods though unfortunately, and areas with elevation obviously

Interesting that in Bedford there is very light snow blowing around. Can see in my garden floodlight. I think we are too far north though for any main snow?

define snow !

yes it will snow …………...how much will fall or settle is completely unknown ….. somewhere between a dusting and 5 cms

Its that white stuff that falls out the sky (albeit rarely these days so you could be forgiven for forgetting the definition!)  :oldlaugh:

Will it be one of those occasions where heavier precipitation showing on the radar never actually reaches us?

Stall or fizzle!

Back in the 80s Thanet had regular snowfalls. For the last 25 or so years the temps are almost always the wrong side of marginal

fair enough, I lived in maidstone then and we always got some snow

Because the amber warning goes slightly into the London & SE area, but its a separate warning.

Looks as if the front is decaying on it's western flank, or radar error?

Evening all,

Although being a complete snow lover, I was hoping for a bit of a non event from a purely personal point of view as I have to get up at 5am to drive to Gatwick from Southend.  So if my travel is to be disrupted, it better disrupt big time to make it worth me not making back home this weekend...

So errr....  bring on the snow 🙂

Cheers

 

FC

A few 20cm figures South of the M4 around the Swindon area, and also some 20cm obviously in Wales, Cotswolds, Salisbury Plain etc

Euro4 looks ok for Kent as well as others, at least for a few hours, looks a bit marginal later on.

So even though the radar returns looks like it should be snowain’t in Sussex, there doesn’t appear to be much at all? That’s disappointing, here in Crawley it’s dry with no snow falling.
