Yep, light rain started in Addlestone, thoroughly miserable morning 

Now a sleety, snowy mix

I went up to Butser Hill which is the high point around here where they've closed the car park without telling anyone so it's a load of cars on a single track road with no room to park or turn around even though they must know everyone will head there to sledge. Staggering stupidity.

Chicken and egg? If the circulation doesn’t head towards the south coast then the snow stays lighter and further south .... the low has spoiled a lot of the snow in south coastal counties but extended the cover much further north dragging far larger areas into the mix ...... today seems a mess to say the least !

Oh definitely it all just shifted north, though there was a clear dry subsidence slot that formed as well to the south of the main front that has sat there for the last 18hrs.

See it was a unholy combo of two things that went wrong last night. The low forming certainly didn't help but it would have usually still allowed snow to fall, albeit marginally. However when the subsidence slot set up to it's south between say 7-11pm it killed all snowfall as the band came in from the channel. 

Once I saw that setup I knew it was game over for anything decent. Though in the end it did finally break down as the LP decayed and showers broke out.

Very interesting evolution. I may do a little research into it and make a Paul S style piece of research as it seemed to be a fairly unusual thing to have occured in the way it did, locally for me anyway!

I just wanted to send a very quick note out to everyone who contributes to this page before I disappear off into my normal 'lurking' position, to thank you all for all of your wonderful contributions, posts and comments on this page, particularly last evening, a lot of which kept me thoroughly entertained. 

 

I think we went from asking why an Amber Alert wasn't being issued, to folks lamenting that there was nothing falling from the sky. Is it moving east, no, it's going north west. And then in amongst that the usual informative messages that someone like myself has learned so much from in the time I've been using this page to watch the weather.

I'll readily confess that I really dislike the cold, and further to that hate snow with a passion, so I'm very much a loner I understand that. BUT I always use this page as a tool for work where I have responsibility for a large office park that I have to get gritted and cleared of snow should it fall....so you can hopefully appreciate, snow can cause me a massive headache. BUT that said, this page is massively informative in terms of details as to what to expect, so thank you all for continuing to do what you do, and whilst I won't pass on 'Congratulations' to anyone or wish them 'Good Luck' in terms of getting any more snow this winter, I very much love all your enthusiasm, banter and informative info. 

I'll quietly slip away and watch from the background and wait for the spring, but genuinely thank you all again.

PPN over London is edging west and looks to keep Reading just on right side of marginal. Could top up lying snow, but wouldn't expect fresh settling where snow has been cleared as temp is 1.1. Temperature is steady, so no rise as it has moved in and dewpoint is steady around 0

Hi peeps

at London Euston in the last 5 minutes the rain is trying to turn more and more back to snow. Could we all be surprised again later with heavier snow setting  in again I wonder but wishful thinking 

regards 😊

Still plenty of snow and slush here (and still raining) so can see why they’ve issued a new ice warning for tonight and tomorrow. It’s lethal now at 2c so if that drops it’ll  be dangerous later!

Great analysis there mate. 

Yes, I'm sure everyone would appreciate a more detailed look at what went on(wrong) last night. Disappointing slightly yes, yet very interesting for the weather enthusiasts amongst us. 

Still tipping it down here in SW19.

Seriously, what is happening to the west of the country. It's like it's being fed precip and expanding but not really moving.

I popped into the SW page and I'm soooo jealous. Around 28cm in places, and still falling! I used to live there 🙄

Temp and dew point is on the rise. Temp 1.5c dew point 2. Brightening up, still a few patches of snow around.

PPN definitely back building near Reading and linking the batch coming west out of London with the main front. Looks like we're on the northern edge of the system so should stay just the right side of marginal. Could be a bonus top up!

The weather is having a argument with its self, one min thick flakes then the next rain/sleet

Alternating between drizzle and wet snow in Harrow. Too far north for the heavier precipitation (thankfully?)

Snowing near Heathrow 

Yes. Showing some tiny red echoes on the radar just to out east. Usually means PPN is developing. Light snow setting in here again now.

Large flakes of snow starting fall again. Looks like there is an arch back/streamer setting up along and just south of M4 moving west. This could deposit quite a few cm's in places
