Quite heavy snow here in Bromley, but it’s been raining all day so will be a real real struggle to settle - it’s trying on the cars though I guess

Well done James!! Your post prompted me to go to the front door and we've got some large flakes of snow, appearing.

Like yourself, been raining most of the day, too. The nasty rain washing away our partial covering, by lunchtime.

Boo!! :oldangry:

Lee, London. SE12.

Regards,

Tom :hi:

Worth noting this also proves that you can get settling snow after sleet/rain. I had it and once the temperature got down to about 0.6c it all started settling readily. Really interesting transition!

- New band going up basically down the A3. Won't be as strong as previous bands, but should give moderate snow.

what website is this? 🙂

Go to Google maps and turn on the traffic layer. It's a great way to verify what is falling: if it's snow you'll see lots of red or at quieter times yellow.

Frustrating - if it had snowed like this last night for as long as it very lightly snizzled I would have had a decent covering. As for now, it’s not settling in Bromley

Do we think this snow is going to make it to North Surrey / S.W London?

Cheers,

Can't imagine much more, the ridge should start to force that low SE and that front is going to have to follow suit at some point. The big uncertainty is of course how much is left!

Hotspur, yeah ice is going to be a real problem, with the snow as well, your going to get some dangerous driving conditions, indeed quite a few places clearly already have got dangerous conditions.

Radar has pepped up enormously to east now

i don't think i've ever seen the radar do as poor as it has the last two days! precip where it's apparently not doing anything, and then no precip where there's big falls of snow

any ideas as to why? very confusing

Is there another radar worth viewing on any other sites? 

One of the problems of living near the East coast is that the radar coverage doesn't seem to go far beyond the coastline. 

It would be good to see what's actually happening further out in the North Sea to try and work out if we are likely to get any showers heading our way.

Showers just appear to come from nowhere, the coverage to the North and East of Norfolk is quite poor

Back to the lower end of moderate here as the band that was over Alton moves through, though much reduced in intensity.

Watching a replay of the radar, this time I really was JUST on the right side, probably 20 miles further east and it would have been another really frustrating evening! Amazing how there can be such differences over relatively small areas.

Isnt that just the amount of traffic on the road?

that definitely is a problem too when watching for showers much like now, can never see where they're developing or if they're dying out or not til they're practically on your doorstep

if you find another radar with better coverage let me know!

Hefty amount fallen in bracknell from this. Very unexpected and it had just about stayed as snow all day...some drizzle/sleet this pm. Can't see where this has pepped up from!

Has anyone heard how much snow the Basingstoke area has had now? must be getting pretty impressive, still in a moderate band of snow!

Looks to be heading to the north-west, anti clockwise from the SE. According to the NW radar.

No, the colour is the average speed. Green means flowing normally, yellow slower than average, red very slow and dark red is stationary. 

It will show as yellow where there are roadworks, such as the M4 between Reading and Maidenhead, but other than that it's a pretty good guide
