One of the strangest events I have ever known

You have driving rain at 60masl in a place that usually does well when the Dewpoint is Negative and a Northerly Offshore Flow

You have Rochester which is pretty much due south and lower in elevation with 4cm

Biggin Hill with next to nothing, but Detling and Bluebell Hill Impassable

12 miles from here you have Langdon Hills resembling a Ski Resort

Some very strange features in the Mid and Upper Levels going on here

I was going to take the A249 over $etling Hill to get to the M20 but so glad I didn’t. I would think large chunks of Kent are getting pretty bad now on the roads so if you have to drive take a blanket etc just in case. All sounds a bit dramatic for us in the UK but it’s no joke breaking down or stuck in traffic in these conditions.

Of course typically just as the heavier stuff starts moving south it dies out - back to lighter stuff again here 

I reckon not over yet just a wobble

It’s been snowing for three hours in crowborough, looks heavy and promising but it’s not really settling. Very frustrating! 

Same here now: snow but not settling. You'll be fine up there as it looks from the radar as though it'll get heavier later. You always get more than us... was sliding all over the place when I took my daughter to Beacon on Weds morning!

It won't last much longer, but it's been welcome.

And bonus - she said 'no way will it settle on the soaking wet roads'... so she's making breakfast tomorrow. For the win!

Thanks Nick, really appreciate your response. Good to know there's hope yet! Temp 0.6 now so am guessing anything that falls without intensity will soon melt but nice to see it falling.

Can I ask what are your thoughts on a potential N'Easterly or Easterly later in Feb?

Yeah, think it could be a few weeks until we get a chance for the pattern to change after a 'warm' up through next week, still the reversal working down from the troposphere into the stratosphere in fits and starts, thought this may trigger the Siberian High to back west across Scandinavia later next week, but the models and their ensembles seem to have lost the appetite for that for now, the MJO may help shake up the pattern a bit from mid-month along with help of the Siberian high, so certainly not ruling out the Ely or NEly cold actually turning up after hunting it all winter, but probably towards end of this month.

How’s Holmbury SM looking? Left Dorking just as it started settling earlier and have been stressing about packing for the -20 and below temps in the Canadian Rockies and having nowhere near enough space in my suitcase! 

Still tanking down here, that's 7 solid hours!! Looking very pretty!! As promised, following a thrilling rugby match, @DAVE ALLEN and @kold weather here's some pics. Taken ten mins ago.. This had significant built up since this afternoon when it was all melting

Looks like parts of the North east have had some beefy snow showers this evening givin* them some good accumulations after dipping in their 5hread.Looking at radar I wouldn’t be surprised to see parts of EA Getting in the action either overnight with some accumulation possible.We need to enjoy the next couple days which should keep the cold weather.From Monday onwards it looks less cold for probably 5 days plus.After that who knows!!Its been a strange winter which has shown so much promise but up until this last week delivered so little.Would love another cold spell(5-7 days) befor3 February is out.

enjoy the snow over the weekend those 5hat have it👍❄️☃️
