    Any photos to share?

    Nope, only have puddles and rain water running down the road. Was only a very brief wintry shower. 
    The best we have had for a while, all 8 seconds of it.

    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.

    Folks, Cleary high frustration is hot topic in some posts !..This event was never an all action for OUR regional thread, TBH Snow fall never is guaranteed for all. Yes granted what is predicted builds the hopes, but with the current climate (Reality) and a much bigger atmosphere event that has happened prior, events take time to take place,  possibly on the horizon something a bit more rewarding to come. Stay Safe and keep the fun going. Still the best regional thread.

    Now I am probably setting myself up for a huge fall here. I have to say there is an enormous amount of peeps on here using the apps as gospel. They are utter nonsense and not worth the paper or system they are using. 

    God take me back to the halcyon days of feb 1st 2009 the epic streamer that dumped a foot and a half on my doorstep.

    No apps just radar and lamppost watching and taking note if what at the time the Amber and red warnings issued.

    There are a few toys being thrown tonight which I am hugely disappointed in as this is a very friendly place.

    We still have 6 weeks of winter and this aint your usual biggest of Atlantic driven drivel. Lets chill peeps and see what comes over next few weeks 

    Peace out

    Just been out to check Rd conditions, not looking forward to my 40 mile commute

    remember when i worked at RAF Henlow and used to drive there every day from SE18. A1M was atrocious in winter (when we had proper ones that is)

    I have to say the met office weather app has been complete garbage over the past 8 weeks (since winter started) especially when it comes to snow predictions for my area.  Yesterday it was forecast with a double snow icon for around 3 hours, but two hours before it changed to cloudy with a light breeze, and the same again today.  Same thing happened early Dec.  Surely even the meto can virtually ‘nowcast’ and get it right occasionally 🤣

    I feel frustration of those of you who have missed out today, at least it's only 24th Jan and still over a month left of some decent potential. After the next few days, the charts could throw anything our way from the weekend - nothing decided.

    For those of us in SW London today it certainly lifted the current mood. Heavy snowfall during the day and not on a work day. Some many happy faces when we went for a walk earlier.

    That PPN still looks strong, if it stays like this should get 1 hour of top up.  We had 7cm earlier in Woodley Reading.

    Agree - The frustration is causing some to turn on one another 🤕🤣

    Luckily I got my snow fix today otherwise I'd probably would be sulking too 🤣

    Still some light snow coming down in Bedford but what a surprising day. Up to about 6cm. Didn’t expect that tbh. Very lucky compared to some. If the skies clear later will be a tricky morning drive.

    I still don't know quite what region I fit into...

    But anyway, very disappointing here in Aylesbury. We managed to go through a hole in the band of snow earlier and got about 2cm, which has now completely melted. Colleagues in Chesham and Berkhamsted have had about 10cm, even work in Wendover (just 5 miles away) got double what we had. 

    Hey ho, still better than anything since March 2018.

    That band / streamer moving into Norwich looks to be just rain

    I have just messaged a mate of mine in the red zone of that streamer, so will let you know what his lamp posts are telling him!

    For those in Kent who missed out earlier there’s good news and not so good news . Good news is that the reds are showing as the precip heads inland so it should be snow. The not so good news is that the precip doesn’t look that heavy. That said it might be showing less than is falling and things could pep up. I’d imagine our contingent in north Kent like medway should be having some light snow now/shortly

    If you cannot see it, then it is only happening with iPhones.

    It's worked on Android phones for years, so it's down to the browser/device. Have you tried another browser?

    I don't think it's being lazy not putting a location in. How are posters supposed to know that other members are using an iPhone and cannot see profile details?

    Would definitely agree it’s an iPhone issue! I’ve never been able to see location details in landscape mode on my iPhone. Its a shame but obviously an Apple quirk

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
