Guys what happened to the snow in essex😂

Slight dusting in North Essex, second one in a week.

Well done to those in other parts of the region with good snow. Loving the pictures and reports. Can't say I'm not a bit jealous though.

Edit: there is a bit of light snow falling now.

Wow - the snow band has moved north after all and we have a covering of snow here in Cambs. We weren’t forecast any. Goes to show the models aren’t always spot on. Happy snow day everyone. Looks like we might get some more over the next hour or so.

Well waking up and looking outside to see it raining, what little snow we had is long gone.  I think the last time it snowed properly in Eastbourne was when i took this photo  😄
Enjoy yourselves the lucky ones out there!

Have to say I am disappointed getting an inch or 2 of snow last night was the best for a few years but to have it already melting is very disappointing. All I can hope is we get a slim chance of an easterly before mid month other wise it's game over for decent snow lasting in the day

The potential snow for Sunday night has now been replaced by rain on the latest MO outlook.

Well I caught the tail end of that streamer that has caused the Amber warning so got some more snow than I expected. However looks like Reading area really copped it last night. Guildford area must have done well as well 

Yes, did alright in the end. Decent covering and it's snowing again now. Definitely looks like the last of it now. Time to see if we'll be doing the school run now!

Woke up to the heaviest echoes on the radar and it’s pouring with rain, steadily melting the couple of inches of snow we had overnight.

At least it’s only 1st February 😊

Well that disappeared quickly, definitely a few cms when I finally went to bed at 1am, now all gone. Looks, again, west of London (Berkshire / Bucks) doing well again and under an amber warning for this morning for further snow.

Euro4 midday 850/1000 thicknesses

if you’re in the greens then you will have melting of any snow 

The palest blue shoud be ok, have minimal melt and whatever falls from the sky be white. That pale blue line pulls back se as the day progresses and the decaying occlusion heads back se (Hirlam and ec are a little less kind re dp’s Which edge that arc positive a bit further nw )

Below, is the result of a pretty pathetic attempt at some frontal snow last night, here in Lee, S.E.London.

1) image.thumb.png.15ec8d6996b3b25ee7ab34b8d13c8d18.png  2) image.thumb.png.8de8f7753dd385f217cdeec1b6843b08.png  3)image.thumb.png.ef0ab9c343cf2aa14cefefd262fbe52a.png

1) A partial dusting in our close.

2) A  dusting on my Stepson's van.

3) A dusting on our neighbour's car.

Majority of the time find frontal snow can be marginal, in this area.

Really hoping that the "Murr Scandinavian Sausage" scenario, comes to fruition.

The "Thames Streamer" is King in this location.

Regards,

Tom. :hi:

Another disappointment in the Tonbridge area.

But, we were really lucky last year during the Beast from the East being in the line of numerous heavy frequent snow showers and ended up with about 6 inches of beautiful powder snow.

Glad to see some area's got a good covering.

Seems that school is off; snow day!

Currently 0.3 dp of -1. Snowing. 

 

Depth in back garden.: 7cm as measured from back door without actually venturing into garden yet, so possibly sheltered by house.
