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

Latest UKMO radar update suggests the whole thing is still lifting northwards, and does actually give my area some moderate snow between 1-2am.

Do I bother staying up? Its all been a total waste of time so far?!

i'd go to bed if i were you

Off to bed mate. I fear for your health if by 2am you still have nothing.

Just went out for a walk ( don't have a dog and the cat didn't fancy it!) lovely squeaky snow! Didn't measure but must be A couple of inches. Temp -0.2. Tried to get some pics of the covered lane but snow flakes Just created lots of white streaks!

Will be gutted if it rains and ruins it!

My rage is forcing this system further north!

Pressure has risen a little recently, so either its filling in, or it is still moving north. Based con radar returns and the way precip is filling on the back side of the low, I think its still making some northwards progress.

I feel your pain. We had the hardest over the top and nothing stuck after 3 hrs, just to high dew points. Few miles north and inland. Winter utopia! At least we have seen blizzard conditions and my window sills are covered with ice like a freezing rain storm from the wind and thaw.

0.6deg here and dew point 0. Have a blast tonight, one small saving grace may be the trains wont run tomorrow. Hopefully......

Think you may need some rehab tomorrow! Your old haunt in south Essex always does better for snow, you must miss it there for that?

Well the thing is, storm Emma was decent here, as was the other snow in March 18, and I did ok in several marginal set-ups back in December 2017. But this has been just one non-stop disaster of a night for snow. I'm really not sure why it has been avoided! By far my worst bust ever!

I'll be that unlucky one with a green spot within a sea of white on those satellite images at this rate!!

Waste of time in Dorking, light dusting and seemed to be stuck in the hole on the radar, anything coming near just fragments before it gets here. As Catherine Tate's Nan would say.....

Wot a load of 'ol sh!!......

Ah no problems!

I've long given up any notions of having any meaningful snow, though I'm still really peeved with how this night has evolved. Anything now is a bonus...literally any snow. Something, even a 5 minute moderate fall would be more than I expect right now...

Still light snow in Reigate. The app on my phone says it will snow until 6am, by that time I think we will have about 1cm - which was pretty much what the BBC forecast this morning. Time for bed!

Waste of time that band has just about crossed us I’d say 3cms on cars & roofs about a dust on pavement and nothing on roads.

Snowing nicely in Basildon with everything starting to go white. 

Edit: Very large snow flakes here. Has an almost 'lake effect' quality which given proximity to the Thames makes sense.
