My son in particular really struggles. Especially after Feb last year we went out and the snow started up again and felt like hail pellets stinging your face... so now he thinks snow will hurt. Bless him. 

Luckily though with it looking likely to continue this afternoon and hopefully little chance of thawing overnight they get to play in it tomorrow 

Bless, and you SOOO want them to enjoy it. My little chap with aspergers and dyspraxia and as a result learning disabilities used to ONLY want to endlessly throw snowballs at me when we were out in the snow. He is 19 now and as we walked through snow last night, he was giggling at all the parts of me that had been the recipient of said snowballs - especially in my eye and down my back! He prides himself on being more mature these days;) Good luck with your little charges.

The main thing I think tonight apart from this wintry mess is the likely hood for ice. Once this does clear away it's going to quickly turn Sub zero across much of the region and all the wet/snow that is still present is going yo get frozen into place.

Going to be nasty out there tonight and tomorrow morning.

Temperature dropped from a maximum of 4.6 to 4.3 in last 30 mins here in locksbottom with light rain turning to sleet.is it possible this heavy snow that has hit Oxfordshire Wiltshire Somerset is finally on the move in a SE DIRECTION and moving towards London and then Kent/Sussex.who knows after yesterday’s forecast and maybe just wishful thinking on my part😂😂!,

Think we need to get in the heavier bursts to get back to snow here in RG7. I thought the greens might do it, but think we need to get the lighter greens.

Temp steadily falling though as sun starts to go down. @kold weather is spot on: it will be treacherous once this all clears and freezes overnight.

Going to need to get colder for anything nuch, I have got some stuff falling from the sky, but it's hard to describe it! Truely is a wintry mix!

Really awful day out there...and nothing is settling with this, ground is way too wet and temps are on the wrong side of marginal still.

@WhiteFox I've just looked at a local weather station and we've nearly matched our liquid precipitation levels we had from last night's snow.

That really shows how pathetic it was last night here that an hour of moderate sleety stuff can almost match the precipitation of last night!

I'm now under a green mass on the radar. Can't work out what's going on to our west? It's so wet here now, that if it did snow, it'd instantly disappear?! What's it looking like for NE Surrey/SW London ?

Could well turn to snow, especially as the whole mass starts to clear away. I'm just not convinced anything is going yo settle however, I still need almost 1c drop from where I am (1.5) to stand a good chance of settling snow and with the ground so wet it's going to need a real heavy burst, not sure it's going to be quite active enough for that.

Light to moderate snow for the last half an hour in north-east Hampshire. Footprints being filled in and trees getting covered again. This is turning into a great spell in this part of the world.

Forecast for Where I am now, Whitstable, is heavy snow from 9pm tonight right through till tomorrow morning. That can’t be true - could it?

I noticed the precipation pepping up along the A3 heavy sleet coming down now. I wonder if it fell hard enough if it would settle a bit, as there is still a good half centimetre of slushy snow on road  36F here. Would help if it came down to nearer 33F

Amazing I can't be that far from you but it's been fairly poor here! Even now you've got settling snow and I have this wintry mix that is just getting the floor! I must be pretty close to the boundary if where that colder air is.
