23:15hrs Southend update.

Hoorah. After almost 24hrs continuous rain, I am pleased to report it has stopped. Must of been getting on for an inch of the horrible stuff.

Quite possibly one of the most depressing 24hr periods I have witnessed in my Netweather history. Good riddance.

So, when’s the next “event” ? ?

Don’t think it was to do with the temps mate @D.V.R

we were just unlucky to be in a hollow spot

snowing now and settled immediately 

hope this continues to be honest

Pavements turning white again ?

Yep, same here, everything including pavements and residential road outside getting a covering now, not really moving much this snow over London too, Met Office precipitation graphic loop clearing this south of London by midnight, can't see that

Nice clump of showers just off north Norfolk coast so some should get hit in next 15mins.They look quite beefy so could give a nice covering to those underneath them??

Snowing here near Croydon, but not settling apart from on cars for now, just not the intensity to for very wet ground. Higher parts to my south over North Downs probably fare better no doubt.

Heavy snow in Shirley and settling everywhere now

Cheers, that would make sense!

Worth noting that there is a suggestion parts of Cambs / Herts (especially over the hills there i.e. Stevenage-Stansted etc) could get a couple of cm from the showers feeding down from the north tonight. Perhaps 1-2cm locally in Norfolk/Suffolk on Saturday evening from North Sea showers too, but not expecting anything particularly widespread or disruptive.

Good stuff - especially because of where you are??

It does look like it's narrowing.

Radar appears to be moving this awfully slowly... I agree with this not being gone by midnight, I reckon here in Bromley I’m just tapping into the heaviest stuff. Could be on for a decent covering if this continues for an hour or more

Snow also settling here in Epsom. Can also hear drip, drip , drip so unsure how long it's going to last for!

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.

Sorry to hear about this Donna. The A21 out of Hastings is a nightmare for the the first 20 miles or so at the best of times, let alone in this weather. Hope everyones ok.

The snow is now easing off a bit in the Hastings area, but if it freezes overnight conditions will be tricky in the morning.

Seems to be re-generating along the coast here again looking at the latest radar returns,with a westward movement! As the main snow band edges toward us from the North

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

Sounds like if it isn't now it will be soon!

1-2cm is always better than nothing. Last question... When's the next beast from the east arriving ?
