Best of luck to the SE gang tonight ?

Evening All, I hope other Members have no objection but just wanted to post up a Wintry Slideshow, for our Kentish Members. But I hope all Members will enjoy these very Wintry photos, from around

Best of luck yo you guys and girls in the South. Don't give up hope if it starts as rain. It rained here for about 2 hours now it's heavy snow. You should be good for a few cms also as it's very heavy

Well the bbc news 24 latest forecast have the front passing through the SE AS AN ALL RAIN event although after which we may get the odd wintry shower afterwards.sadly think they will be right.Downs and children’s may get a temporary covering if they are lucky.Amazing as soon as front reaches N France it all turns to snow but then dew points are so much colder(-6 to-8)).Incredible how about 30-50 miles makes so much difference(from East Kent)

The ECMWF has so far not showed any snow away from higher ground in the north and west of England along (back edge of) the front sweeping SE Monday night, GFS precipitation charts have, but would ignore them.

However, the cold NWly flow on Tuesday could feed in showers through the Cheshire Gap then through the Midlands towards London + SE in the afternoon which could fall as snow looking at progged DPs and temps, seen this happen quite a few times.

Beautiful winters day here. 

-5c on the 9am dog walk with thick frost and blue sky. 

Up on the hills of Ampthill Park with the shallow mist in the walk way valley paths looking down was truly stunning. 

Frost on the ground all day in shaded areas.

Evening gang, 

What I think will happen Monday into Tuesday with the front is rain to start and then back edge snow. Models also suck at evaporative cooling which could take place in any heavier bursts, which look quite likely as its a fairly lively cold front. 

Its incredibly difficult in these situations to get the rain/snow switch forcast right. 99% of the time its down to live local observations and data. You win some you loose some. 

I don't think it will settle as the front doesn't stick around long enough for the more conductive conditions for settling snow.

That said, it looks as though the Cheshire gap might come in handy, although a very long land track to our region many times Ive experienced snow from it here. 

Looks like more orginsed showers too could pep up.. 

Tonight will be the 3rs frost on the trot here.. Winter has finally arrived

I always worry when I see snow forecast to cover the 'children', Hotspur!?

Anywho, I expect that the greatest danger might (overnight frost permitting) come not from snow but from cold rain/sleet/wet snow falling onto frozen ground? Not a pleasant breakfast-time commute...?

Tried to edit it as meant Chilterns but predictive text made it go all wrong lol!!

What a treat to be out walking the dog today. Clear, crisp air; beautiful, all too rare (this year) winter sun and the sheer joy of white pockets of frost contrasting with brightly coloured sun warmed grass and winter crops.  Invigorating and mood enhancing. 

Still -1, the black car has remained white all day in the shade and will be horrid to clear at 06:45 in the forecasted freezing fog but today, at least, the sun shone and for a few hours all felt right with the world.

Snow chances are there this week, albeit an outside bet.

Chance 1 - back edge snow as the cold front clears around 5-7am on Tuesday - chance of a slushy layer on the Downs 50% risk

Chance 2 - Kent streamer possibly to set up Thursday/Friday if the Arpege has it right - though it would be a case of wet snow only with altitude and cold rain for most - 20% chance

Both of these worth keeping an eye out for.
