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

About 3/5 cms at best 

currently drizzling though and the snow blobs stuck to fences and walls beginning to show the melt around them

EDIT: got a bit heavier and turned to light snow ....

Total fail for me.  Roll on spring been a crap winter.

Same here so far ,models aren't worth a ha penny when comes to forecasting beyond 5 days ,the SSW hasn't produced the weather we hoped and last night's snow fell as rain here ,it is what it is 

Just hoping February and March has something more substantial

same here as well although I expected it, it is Thanet after all. Even if the polar vortex positioned itself directly over us I still think we would end up with rain ????

It looks like it was a hit and miss affair across the region .

More areas saw snow falling but accumulations were harder to come by ,that less cold sector in the far se was always there in the models to varying degrees .

Got about 3-4" here in north-east Hampshire - so pretty pleased. Right at the top of the estimates for the area south of London. Dog is going mad in the garden and have had to knock off the accumulations from some bent over bushes.

Morning, well that was an event that promised so much and delivered so little. It just never felt quite cold enough and with all those gaps in the precipitation, we just didn't get enough of the heavy stuff. On the plus side, I'm flying to Italy tomorrow so Gatwick should be functioning and it's snowing heavily in the mountains today!

Got woken up at 4;20am this morning by next doors child screaming 'It's snowing' and believe me, it was loud. Then she started crying.

about an inch here but it's normally more as you head into the village. Moderate snow still here with flakes getting bigger, looks like it will stop before we head out.

0.7c.

I mentioned last night I was concerned about the marginal element. Seems to have come true for many unfortunately. Was a tricky one to forecast

Meagre would be an understatement. And a south of the M4 event, my *rse! Just goes to confirm that by and large for me here on the Surrey/Sussex border, Pm routes to cold are typically garbage unless decent blocking to the North East/East and embedded cold are in situ. All this modified nonsense, flows off the channel, less warm sectors, shearing fronts etc yada yada. No good. Take me back to Feb 86; or Jan 87. Or Feb 91. Or Feb 09. Hell, even March 2018. Give me a bloody easterly!

Was always going to be a disappointment when coming from a southerly direction. Dragged all the warm mush into the system. The only way this could of worked is if turned straight into an easterly as the low passed over. Think I need to move to Chicago and experience something worth being on the news

Well, the 5cm we accumulated last night is dripping away, and we have that classic 'end of snow spell' fog outside. I'll post a couple of pictures in the next post, but it doesn't reflect what it looked like last night!

The 1cm we had at 6am is thawing rapidly.  Just a patchy slushy dusting that's left.

1.3C

Glad folk in the western and northwestern part of the region did reasonably well.  One day, Greater London will see a fall to match Feb '09, Feb '91 and the legendary stuff from the 80's.  One day...
