SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 07/11/2018


Recommended Posts

Some lovely pics here this morning ? Nothing to write home about here in Croydon and rapidly melting even though we were close to the 'jackpot' zone. I think one of the issues is the ground is probably too warm hence why there is such a fast melt going on. That and it just never snowed as much as we were all going for of course.

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

Good morning from the corridor of mediocrity. Nothing to speak of in Hooe. Some wet patches of slush. Snowed up until 1am but too sleety to accumulate.

Then rained...bah.

If you have accumulations enjoy it, certainly north of the region got some surprises.

Roll on spring now....appears we are unable to get snow here. That’s 2years now in a number of set ups and still no accumulations!

A couple of MM last night here in medway. All but melted already. Last night was full of promise again. But was a let down for us again.

 

Light snownhas just started falling, but will be a short flurry according to the radar. 

 

Heres hoping we we get another shot at the good stuff before the end of the season.

Barely anything here in Ashtead Surrey..... not much more than when I went to bed at 12.30 last night even though I was forecast to have another 4hrs of heavy snow!!! Looks very damp out there and thawing already..... such a let down after all the hype ??

Went to bed not expecting anything as thought I was too far north. Woke at 01:20 to see it a snow covering. An unexpected treat!

Snowing again now but looks as though there might also be a very slight thaw. Looking pretty though.  

My young lab isn’t sure what to make of it - he’s daintily high-stepping around with exaggerated camp ballerina dramatics. ???

Fun! Whereabouts do you go? We used to go to Runnymede. Hurry before it all melts

Iron horse, park up by fox and hounds and walk the mile or so and sledge down all the hills while you go... Some are pretty steep I went down face first last year, but it was brutal cold...

Brief spell of light snow here in Ipswich  in the early hours but no covering to speak of, in fact it melted what leftover snow there was remaining from the other day! temps and dp were too marginal. That’s still the case the morning. Looks like some people did ok around the region but haven’t seen any decent depths reported (7cm+) so far...

Wintry mix today/this weekend and a few more sliders going forward seems to be the theme... give me a solid ENE any day!

Although its been a disappointing week for many (probably because my expectations were too high). If you'd told me a few weeks ago I'd have 4 days of snow cover in a row I'd have taken that. Granted its snow cover of an inch or less but better than all winter (I'm trying to be positive lol)

We may as well bring on an easterly/north easterly with lots of streamers and then a channel low for good measure -  best chances for the masses ?
