    Hi everyone Been lurking on this site for probably around 12 years. Used to lurk on TWO. Never post but just wanted to share some pics from Folkestone Warren this evening looking out along the wh

    Some more photos from a local walk this morning. The freezing fog made everything special...

    Lots of Boom Posts starting to appear again in the MOD Thread so things could start to get interesting in the run upto the weekend as the models start showing the period 21-23rd by the 8th Jan runs.

    You know it’s a bad winter when central London has more snow “events” than you 🤣

    Similar, looks like it's starting again - admittedly very light - but there's a clear thaw underway.

    Where are you in the chilterns  ...... sounds v odd that nothing has stuck ?  

    Sorry should of said it has stuck. I'm in Aylesbury. We had about 4cm i would say? But a few miles up the road in the hills..

    They had 10cm easily. 

    Really annoying it snowed very heavily from 9am -10.30 and got a good covering but its been snowing ever since but not adding to total. Just melting.

    The snow is much heavier now, a mix of fine stuff/soft hail and larger flakes that are settling nicely.

    Well it was good while it lasted stopped bowing now in Walthamstow & and I can now hear the dripping of the snow as it melts. Managed to take some nice snowflake pictures so amazing natures beauty. Shame that not everyone saw the snow.  😊

    Ahhhh. The sound of cold rain. What an utter load of crud today has been. Utterly awful. Make it about 8/9 events missed out on now. When will we get a break in east kent?

    Rain here in East Kent, at least so far. Feels properly nippy though, hoping it turns to snow as the cold front comes over fully.

    SWF, radar has been showing PPN for ages but nothing fell.
    I've just had about a minute of what I call "trying to snow".

    Sadly this was always going to a rain event for immediate coastal areas.  Here in Clacton we've had a few drips of rain so far, radar not looking anywhere near as good as it did a couple of hours ago.  Expecting moderate rain and some sleet, possibly back edge snow but little to no accumulation.

     

    To everyone to my west that's had settling snow - well done 🙂

    If anyone in the SE that’s seeing rain wonders if elevation would have helped...don’t worry it wouldn’t. I’ve been told it’s raining on the north Downs at 600ft asl 🤷‍♂️

    But as expected london mainly the most easterly point of good accumulation- some models picked up in this very well.

    Fingers crossed, there still appears to be northward momentum of this. I’m surprised it has made it this far, a good chance of being under this when it pivots back south so a chance of a proper covering.

    Generally bad always here except for one of two rare events now and again. Global warming and almost always anomalous high sea temperature moderates weather way too much here now. Father in law near Leicester, hammering down with snow. Unless very cold eastern Europe temps creep across from the East any events like this are best towards midlands
