Front is definitely edging slowly back ESE to SE. All frozen PPN here in RG7 so maybe a slim chance for those further south and east?

Possibly, the Euro4 does shift it just as it decays away. Ends up over me just as it dies off. Hirlam obviously more agressive but it did a poor job in the SE last night so no reason for that to change now I'm sure!

Besides, I think any precip hete right now will be sleet, so honestly I don't mind if we stay dry for a while yet.

Looks like no snow in the forecast for me now. Temperatures rising on Monday, up to 8c. So will be looking forward to the next cold spell now, this one has been pretty useless to be honest.

Too marginal and fronts not making good progress. Think sea temps might be too mild too.

Very disappointing in this area for longevity. The snow came, then it went, then it came back better with more flakes and by 2am when I looked out the window nice thick snow scapes greeted me across the rooftops. Awaking at 7am, much of the snow on the rooftops had gone and the roads and pavements were clear, leaving me just to get the snow off the car. Son is very unimpressed that Nescot College in Epsom was open and it wasn't to be a snow day after all. There was enough snow left in Nonsuch Park to make it look seasonal at least, I'll post a pic later. Trying to be positive that I have cleared the car of snow twice in two weeks, driven in snow and walked the dog in nice falling flakes as the roads and pavements covered. But also thinking of how close we came to something more memorable. And it's raining!

I feel your pain Reef!!! Absolutley abysmal event for us.... I'm gutted.... not sure if Epsom Downs has more or Box Hill, may take a drive tomorrow but I can't be bothered today, feeling too meh about it all, lol!xx

Dreadful day here on the Essex riviera...just cold rain YUCK!

Same here, cold, damp and grey, enough to make anyone get on the ladyboys, though given its lunch time i'll settle for a stomp down to the petrol station for a Ginsters.

Moderate snow in Hemel. Metoffice showing heavy snow all afternoon however the precipitation to the west surely isn’t going to travel east over my direction is it?

I was hoping that Norfolk might do well today out of some Shower activity in the North sea but just cant see where this is coming from at the moment. If anyone has any insights....??

*Prays to the weather gods again*

Looking at the radar I can see where they are coming from; just north and west of here is getting a dumping right now but I'm restricted to intermittent light snow at the moment.

Afternoon all 🙂

Obviously a lot of disappointed people on the snow front in this region but also a few winners as well.

Clearly, for those furthest to the east and south the orientation of the LP ushered in a sector of more humid air caused a steady if not rapid melt of snow cover and some quite hefty rain showers down over east Kent. It reminded me of December 2010 when the Saturday snowfall was attacked by a pulse of humid air on Monday which brought a little rain and a melt of about half of what was lying.

As with others, here in lowland East London, we had a little snow as the front came through but by dawn this had largely melted and now we have quite steady rain and a temperature of around 2c but humidity up around 90% so very marginal but just the wrong way for me. Some indications of a brief re-invigoration of the front as it pulls away to the south and south east overnight so whether that will equate to a dusting by morning remains to be seen. Tomorrow does look a cold feeling day with 850s of -6 or so for much of the day and lower humidity but we'll be under a transient ridge by then.

The end of winter? Who knows? Still one third to go by most reckoning and perfectly possible even here to have lying snow well into March.

Have just travelled back from Bracknell which is a a winter wonderland with snow still falling, to Weybridge in Surrey which has lost its dusting from overnight and is raining, amazing difference in about 15 miies distance.

Excellent! Perfect for building a snowman too; very clingy, wet snow.

& @Reefseeker I am told by my wife that my two girls had lots of fun In the snow on the way too school before it all melted , such a shame it’s all gone so quickly, I was flabbergasted just now to see Chippenham on the bbc news channel still being pummelled with snow . At least I suppose I have no big issues at work that are snow related .

Pelting down here,cold rain,b e a utiful, but I refuse to give up, we will have a decent snow event for everyone, and it will not involve warm sectors, higher dew points, marginality, or any other stuff that gets in the way, keep the faith peeps its only February
