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)

 

Ha ha! Rates in top ten snowfalls over past twenty years here! May not have had extreme cold for days on end, but in terms of snow cover today is only behind Feb/Mar 2018, Dec 2010 and Dec/Jan 09/10 this century.

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

Awoken to some sleet and mush. Think I would have taken yesterdays -6 freezing fog over that but anyway! 

Just wasn't the right set up yesterday - and the front was not significant/potent enough. 

Of better interest are the showers/convective activity prospects for the next 24 hours - as the radar currently shows around Newcastle. Get in the firing line of these and they would easily out do yesterdays damp squib and provide a nice 2-3 inches. Hoping a 'Wash Streamer' sets up later...will have to wait and see.

That's amazing to think so many people disappointed in one part of the region whilst others get a great dumping - I'm jealous - be sure to upload lots of pics so us bitter ones can enjoy

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! 

I take it you’re not happy ! 

The issue for the far se was the less cold sector , areas further west avoided that . There was never the depth of cold for it to be non marginal especially towards areas with an onshore flow.

Definitely more snow in Walderslade than in Sidcup. Seems like there was a weird gap between the South coast and North London.

I swear Walderslade and Lordswood have their own micro climate - I grew up in Lordswood during the 80's and 90's. Some amazing snowfalls there whilst down the road had half.

A cracking spell of sleet here now ?

This event was so marginal for here but I suppose it was always going to be thus so can’t be too dispondant.

Back to medium long term prospect again for me and the hunt for some more winter....

Can these regional threads not attach a warning sign to ignore weather apps as they’re garbage .

Yes, they should come with a health warning! MO app was rarely accurate for here last night. They got it right in the end showing heavy snow between 1 and 6am, but I could have found that out from the radar.
