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.

    Not sure what went wrong across Kent, but people on the Downs are even reporting rain now. Absolute flop for most SE of London. Wont know until the re-analysis but my guess is a wedge of less cold air aloft moved in across Kent from the south as winds veered southerly, combined with the band fragmenting & weakening meant rain rather than snow for many. 

    Areas that saw the heaviest precip, London etc have done very well. 

    What a sh*t winter this has been for us down here.

    Shocking rise in temps for me forecast for the beeb and met were max 1c nearly made 5.0c today.

    Best snow since March 2018 here in NE London. A good few cm’s, approaching an inch during the heaviest part of the fall an hour or so ago. Started snowing again as that little back build blob over London pushes east:

    Met O radar seems to be a complete waste of time today for some reason. I’m under moderate precip now and it’s absolutely bone dry 🤷🏻‍♂️
     

    Normally their radar is spot on 

    Same here in Cambridge. Been under ppn echoes for a while now and nothing but spots of rain falling. No snow at all.

    Very light snow started 11am. Dog walk pic/video on outskirts of village midday, back garden starting to look wintery 12:40. Not a lot of snow, although it’s the first this year here and something to send my poor sister struggling with 43C where she lives in Australia.  What isn’t evident from garden video is the resident squirrel racing up and down one of the trees looking as though it’s doing a joyful snow dance, although the poor thing might well be trying the equivalent of a panic buy at the first hint of snow.

    Some proper dumpings go on which is good to see! Hopeful of seeing something later here from the bend back in the form of showers but looks like west is best for this region. Pivot point and sweet spot looks to be west of Cambridge. Seems like the front is breaking up on the NE edge, maybe due to some shearing of the winds off the coast(and slightly milder air)? Also would tie in with reports of rain on the Kent and Essex coast

    Only chance for those of us in South Essex is later from around 6pm onwards when the wind swings round to the north and we do not have the wind from the south east which has absolutely killed it here so far today. You watch later the temperature will drop but nothing will fall from the sky!

    We've had two flurries so far, both lasting about ten seconds. Hopefully the main band gets this far north and east, stalls, pivots, stalls again and buries me in snow. 😂

    Time to call it a day soon still no snow this winter so far take I am going to kick the can down the road for another week then all of a sudden it will be spring.

    We may get a last shout end Feb beginning March, when the N Sea has cooled to about as cool as it might get in the far SE. But if no then you're right. I will enjoy those early warm sunny days in my sun trap patio! Few years back got something like 17C around 10th March, which in the sun was fab!
