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

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 ?

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

No need to be so pessimistic. It will definitely snow some places.

Yeah, the Alps lol.

Personally, a slush fest and 8c by lunch doesn't do it for me. If we ain't getting a cold spell with lasting snow then give me 25c and sun!

It's bitterly cold out there. Personally,  I'm not buying the snow. Might get some sleet snow, but I think people will be disappointed.

I had reasonable hopes for this winter but this is probably it ! Not exactly a 1963 experience is it ? Good luck all for next 24hrs . You never know we might see some falling at least

Its at times like these I wish the whole of the SE Region was a minimum of 250m asl and then marganilty wouldn’t come into question!!Tbh it looks like a miserable Thursday morning to me with some moderate bursts of rain for many but maybe those 200m asl May see a short lived covering.Then Friday and Saturday bring more spells of rain-Oh joy?

Todays stratospheric zonal wind is record breaking positive at +47.9 M/S > the record Negative is 2018 -14.1M/S a difference of 60M/S in the 2 years > Thats why theres been no greenland blocking !

It’s not cold enough imo .....2 or 3 c.......

 expecting to see a bit of wet snow at best away from elevation far enough north .... chilterns I would think ......

Im currently at 3.5c, cold rain it will be, then another deluge on the way, I love the cold and snow, but this winter has been utterly abysmal, and I genuinely cannot wait for some warmer weather, I can get the garden sorted, and inject colour into the pots

Agree, have you seen the Hirlam 18z? downgrade in terms of snowfall compared to 12z and I find that ppn model the best/most accurate at this timeframe. Not expecting anything apart from a bit of wet snow and my location is in current meto warning.

Yes, everything is downgrading with the metoffice forecasts showing nowt but heavy rain for my location and sleet for those in the sweet spot. 

Game over I think!

Looks like it. Pity this was our best chance of the winter, and a perfect channel low too.

GFS 18z has also downgraded. 

Rounds off an absolute rubbish winter! ?

If we don't get a lovely hot dry summer after this pathetic excuse for a winter then I will definitely throw a strop, lol!!! Not a great start to the new decade weather wise but maybe a bad blip before a corking decade to come?!??xx

Me too. Got everything crossed for a splendid summer and lots of warm summer evenings chilling in the garden.

Bbc/Meto and Met all going for very wet weekend and next week. LPs forecast to take more southerly track next week and with colder air in place, possibly something a bit wintry. Certainly going to be wet either way. 

As for tomorrow, no snow in the capital anyway, cold rain AM,8c and Sunny in afternoon.

2.5c here with a DP of 0.4c. Expecting a grotty cold and wet day here. Don’t think I can bring myself to log in here tomorrow as I get way too jealous of people having snow when we don’t down here

Unfortunately all of those heavy snow symbols from earlier for tomorrow, have now been replaced by heavy rain ones by the met office. Location near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Looks like it's game over, not that it even started!

Extent of the precip already further north on the radar than the hirlam 18z

Oh dear that means we'll get the south of the low and sw winds

No, the low is as it was the precip has a larger area to the north of the low

Yep, totally agree. Then the bbq can come out and we can forget about this absolutely dire winter.
