22:00hrs update from Southend.

Still raining. Getting on for pretty much 22hrs now bar the odd flake.

Absolutely sick as a parrot.

Same for me here in Maldon! Absolutely fed up with this winter 😡

Quite amazing just how long this band of precip has lasted .

Very happy for those that missed out last night finally seeing some decent snow tonight .

Some quite bizarre scenarios playing out locally here.

In short, In three different spots locally snow is falling at lower elevations with sleet and wet snow higher up!

Maybe I've got a bit more elevation than you, our pavements and grass completely covered and still steady snow.

I’m in woodhatch so quite low down compared to much of Reigate...

Just for the sake of consistency, it’s still p1ssing down with rain in Horley five miles away. Is Horley actually below sea level?! 😄

It’s well known that Horley is practically a swamp!

Here's a loop of the upper low / PVA that's driving this persistent area of snow through today:

Cannot wait to see the re-analysis of what went wrong/right tonight, nothing like this was expected

Damn snow band is getting lighter now as it starts to slip south over south London, gonna struggle to settle unless it picks up, given up hope of a covering tonight I think

How is it London way? Say Bexley/Croydon/Lewisham area?

Steady going here in Bromley, heavier precipitation means it’s settling now but not all that fast as the flakes aren’t so big - heavier stuff still to the north but looks like it’s not getting any heavier as it sinks south

Bit of deja vu from last year GP? 😄 Drive the wife nuts. I left the snowfields of Beckenham for this garbage! 😂

Ok, I have spent the last few hours on the phone to my husband who was in his way to work. He has had to turn around and come home, he said the roads are in a complete mess, even major roads. The A21 is shut and there are people and cars all over the place in ditches. My husband doesn’t scare at much he’s a paratrooper so I know it’s pretty bad out there.  Did the forecasters not know this was coming???? 

   I don’t care about the snow now, all i want is my husband home safe.
