Shall I tell you what else has annoyed me, the advert on the top of this forum is of an UMBRELLA  :wallbash: :wallbash: What did I say the other night about the only place in the splodge in the uk with no snow.

Well, the snow is faulty light now but at least it made an appearance. Albeit a late one.

Goodness me, the arc of snow wrapping around London not budging, while here in Croydon it remains in an eternal hole of drizzle, lol.

Where abouts mate?

I'm ex-Thurrock from South Ockendon (probably moved out about 6 years ago now) some of my best weather memories were off those Thames streamers and the Thundersnow that would come from the more dynamic of them!

I’m literally next to lakeside shopping centre.

Slightly sleety here at the moment, due to the dew points rising a touch along with the temps (now 0.4c).

Sleet on top of snow then freeze is probably the most dangerous combo of all because it cause the snow to become an ice rink, and people never expect it either. When I go out in it tomorrow I'm going to have to be very careful.

Also Saturday night is looing VERY cold, high resolution models have lots of pockets of -7/8c around!

I checked another radar thinking there was a glitch. It really isn't moving.

anyway back in Surbiton and it’s steady light snow , no settling through .

Ah Chafford Hundred I assume?

Used to walk from home to Lakeside all the time, worked up there as well for quite some time.

Wind chill out there at -4.6c, brrr! I mean its no -50 like USA...but that's cold enough for me!

Ah yes K.W,

When I was TOMSE20 and lived at Anerley, S.E.London, I used to use you, at Thurrock and Steve M., at Bexleyheath as markers. Both upwind of me and with an ENE flow knew if you were reporting snow, in all probability it was about to hit me. I can remember looking to the NE and seeing Shooters Hill disappear from view and getting excited!! Lol.

Regards,

Tom. :hi:

Been heavy snow here in Maidstone for about an hour but because of the rain last night and today its only laying on cars at the moment.

Looked at the radar is there something wrong or is it just not moving ?

Gues what ??? It’s absolou chucking it down with rain here STILL, it’s been all day with no let up what so ever. ....

 

Just goes to show how localised these events can be. Just a few miles away from you in Hastings/St Leonards on Sea  the heavy rain earlier turned to snow about an hour or so ago and it's still snowing. No chance of settling though.
