Morning. 
Bit of a discrepancy on forecasts In the London area today. BBC going with isolate heavy showers yet the met office seems more confident going for scattered showers, more so in the west. Guessing it’s going to be another day of wait and see. 

The dicrepancy between the BBC and Met Office forecasts for the SE have been unbelievable during this last 7 days or so. And to be fair, the BBC/MetoGroup have been far and away the more accurate. Gone very dull in SW London at 21c.

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.

After a fine and clear start the cloud soon bubbled up and we had a shower again develop pretty much overhead , This was not particularly heavy and took an age to clear , Then for the last couple of hours we have had quite clear conditions with warm sunshine, I see on the radar and looking south a storm is brewing and surely coming our way . Took these pics of the approaching storm and the retreating blue skies just now .

Well, what can I say, Mark: almost unbroken, very warm sunshine and a barely cooling sea-breeze...? But I was watching the convergence zone (the one that's close to @chrisbell-nottheweatherman?) receding slowly away into the dark blue yonder...!:oldgrin:

Thanks for the mention, mate - rain developed back down that line, to the point where we had some large, convective drops.

Well the shower/s that we’re building quite quickly just dissipated around me and only remarkably delivered some light rain . Now we have almost clear blue skies and a distant shower can be seen , I really thought a storm was coming through here but it was not to be today , So far at least ?.

Here's hoping for a bit more of a chance down here tomorrow was close but no cigar today,  good to see people further North getting some good storms over the past two days, is there more of a cap in place for the majority of our region as things seem limited and then go pop further North West?

Good spot with the convergence zone Pete. Look at the radar and then look at the Arpege mean wind flow forecast for late afternoon - a NE'ly curling south meets a southerly flow going north - and up it all goes. Makes it clear why the storms formed where they did.

Morning 

MO says a night of 18c here today, however it is already 17.8c so think that might not be quite right!

Forecast also shows heavy rain here from midnight but the warning doesn’t start until midday tomorrow...something tells me they don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow apart from there might be heavy rain somewhere!

Not in the zones again today ? it’s dull and humid this morning, just a little storm would be nice, not asking for non stop torrential rain, just a few lightening strikes, to break up the day. ?⚠️
