I waited 4 hours for this snow and it hasn't even settled. What am I doing with my life.

Ha, I've waited 4hrs for literally nothing, to be chasing dry slots left right and center. At least you have got snow!

Evening All South Eastern Snow Friends from South Wales.

Despite it forecasting a good event and the radar returns showing quite decent signals, its been snowing off and on for about 8 hours and ive got about 5mm.... mostly snizzle

Those who are missing out, you are not alone!😣

Sometimes things dont quite go as hoped.

Just thought id have a look in and see how things are going on the East Side Massive👍

Pivoting around Bath?

Amazing, your like 40 miles SE of me and it literally looks like a different country compared to what I can see outside, madness!!

From the MetO earlier:

This Evening and Tonight:

Sleet and snow stalling overhead but becoming lighter and more intermittent with time. Southern coastal districts are more likely to see rain or sleet, whereas inland areas may see some snow accumulations. 

Er.... no. Also ref Bognor seafront. 

I know forecasting snow is a nightmare, and that plenty in the region have had decent falls (also, the night is young). But this is poor from the MetO, no?

I seriously think I will keep missing it, I've missed it all night now (nearly 5hrs into the event) I see no reason for that to change, I really don't.

As I said, there has to be some influence from the Downs here, its the only thing I can explain it with. I am at a total loss otherwise.

Whitefox will not be seeing me in my birthday suit tomorrow!

I think you'll have a covering within the next hour actually.

Please can someone tell me what areas the pivot is likely to be good for?

Still don't think we've found the pivot yet, all still seems to be sliding northwest atm, clear slot moving into south London now

Just been out with the dog. Nothing like the sound of fresh squeaky snow underfoot!

Very wet snow though and very different depths depending on surface. Varies from about 5-6cm on some cars and plants, to about 2cm on some pavements. I'm guessing that the temperature being just above freezing has contributed to that.

Looking at radar, looks like snow easing for now as band is still heading north. Some heavier showers still to south so maybe a bit more to come.

Back edge is approaching, one last chance at snow tonight before its officially over and the front is to our north.

what are the odds guys...I think more or less 100/1 at this time based on history!

Good to see central London in the action. I'm currently in that giant hole under London. However, is that band underneath coming towards us?

Seems to be a bit of a circulation around the Salisbury area?

Once we find the pivot will it somewhat stall before eventually sinking back south and east?

The wind is really picking up from the East, so maybe the pivot is about to occur?

Radar showing pink then dark pink since 22.30 but the first few flakes have literally just started to fall.  There is about 1cm of snow left in shady areas around the fields from Tuesday night.  Lowest temp of the winter so far was last night, min -7.8C, currently it's 0.7C.

Visitors from northern China arrive tomorrow lunchtime.  It's been down to -20C at night there but very little precipitation, it will be so exciting if snow is falling or even lying when they get here!
