    So confusing with all the models, some going north some going south with the snow, all i know is the front is further north than i was expecting so in conclusion.....i have no idea who will or wont see snow tomorrow 🤣

    That’s generally the best way to deal with possible snow !

    I would go for somewhere lick Rickmansworth as being the sweet spot with 8cm

    I was quite confident all this talk of Surrey hills being a potential sweet spot - now looking less so ...

    Southern end of the M40 near the Chilterns for me to be the sweet spot

    Agree, I said earlier Chilterns north of High Wycombe would be my guess. I’m fairly happy with my location on the eastern edge of Chilterns

    I was getting hopeful, now not so much! someone tell me if it looks like it’s going to miss us again, or is it just a matter of waiting and seeing!? All this talk of further north! Is that right??

    I agree with others that the Chilterns probably look to be the sweet spot for this event.

    So naturally the GFS decides that Nottingham will get over 10cm of snow tomorrow..... 🤪

    Don't be surprised if tomorrow's ppn system stalls much longer when it pivots and swirls over the SE image.png.c345bf3d75a912972c0227ec275b842e.pngimage.png.c345bf3d75a912972c0227ec275b842e.pngimage.png.c345bf3d75a912972c0227ec275b842e.pngimage.png.c345bf3d75a912972c0227ec275b842e.png

    I really hope its wrong, its so hard to get snow to the south of that wretched M4 every winter the likes of the Chilterns etc even in poor snowless winters always atleast get some small snowfalls virtually every winter so I hope this is wrong! Purely for the sanity for the likes of Surrey London and Kent

    Looks like it... the Surrey Hills had it for 5-10 minutes only to be stolen by the Chilterns

    I'm just exhausted following all this, what with the uncertainties re:  direction of travel, placement of pivot, marginal on coasts, etc, etc. Mind you my East Kent location was a positive last wkend so unlikely to get lucky twice.

    Experience tells us that it’s unlikely that this evenings runs have this pinned down .....the morning will reveal continuity from the 00z and we will see where the radar has the precip.  Of course then it becomes nowcasting as the precip waxes and wanes .....it might look as though you’re in for a dump and then the snowfall arrives and lightens whereas 20 miles away the opposite happens ....good luck !

    The met office forecast for Kenley had it getting to this part of Surrey about 11 earlier this evening and starting as sleet. That’s now changed to snow from 9am and there is now a longer period of heavy snow. We wait to see. Fingers crossed

    18z is making things much more marginal for an increasing chunk of the southern coastal counties unfortunately. 

    Altitude should still make a decent amount of difference.

    Sadly on some of the runs I'm too far south, so a trip to high ground is definitely going to be needed it appears! I should think 250m+ will still easily be enough and I can get to those pretty easily.

    MO app just updated my location (just north of Peterborough) for light snow tomorrow. I wonder if this reflects a northward correction?
