Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

So lovely to see a sunset this evening but my goodness, the Thames is starting to flow high and fast - now on a flood alert between Henley and Cookham.

All the rain will no doubt cause some issues with the Thames, I’m glad my Mum moved 2 years ago from a location close to the river in Staines. Will not forget the 2013 floods in a hurry. Dennis has certainly been worse than Ciara in our region for rainfall. Peak wind gusts have generally been lower, though still some damaging gusts. I see that Paris reached 18°C today ? Blowing an absolute hoolie there, too and other parts of the near continent. Prague reached 13°C today.

Many local roads flooded here, the garden is an enormous puddle with our fence a gonner for good after valiant attempts during last week's storm. Locally we are under a flood warning until midnight. The Thames at Kingston must be very high indeed. But at least we have a sunset and pockets of blue sky. Please can we have some weeks to dry out now and while we're at it, might as well head on into spring.

Heartbreaking seeing the news reports from Wales. Homes and businesses destroyed through flood waters. 
 

Absolute drenching here today, fields/lakes/river streams basically anywhere that isn’t a road seems to be under water on my drive home this afternoon. Shocking on the A505 to see the fields to my left under water. Devastating.

Local farm had to rescue the horses from the floods. 

We need a very very long dry period and fast!!

Is that another squall line developing out west ? Looks like it on the radar .

Hope not. 
Flooded plains here are awful, feel for the wildlife who depend on grazing in these fields.

Yeah I hope so too , The Ace of spades Slip road  towards Claygate was terrible today I think @Mal Kapadia saw this too  , Loads of Cars and Vans left broken down and the fire brigade called , I’ve also seen on social media the Hogsmill is close to breaking its banks .It looks like there is unfortunately a band of rain followed by another one but hopefully it loses it oomph .

Fingers crossed it losses intensity. 
 

Really worrying the river levels and flooded plains here. Never seen it like this.

It’s hit here.

Re: Hogsmill, it's that flood warning that we are under on account of the 'Surbiton Stream' running through this area. Just got back from the dog walk where the wind and rain whipped up like Storm Dennis round two. As you say, not as bad as further west by the time it reached here, but still distinctly wild and woolly. Edit: And cold in the wind too!
