    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.

    I see the south west London snow shield is still functioning possibly the least snowy part of the south east. 🤣

    Back to square one here now, dry with freezing fog, may be the mild sector is through?

    We'll see if next lot is rain or snow, last lot once light was all rain. I predict very slippery ice for the morning.

    Desperate times - init😄

    Our very brief shower has stopped now and I think that's it for tonight, unless that lot near the Thames estuary can survive the journey over here🤔

    This video shows it perfectly the way the flurries went from barely a flake to moderately heavy by the end of the recording as you can see. A nice surprise hope we all get some proper stuff soon. Not often I see snow in the morning and a slightly beefier flurry or 3 in the evening on the same day neither were forecast or showed on the apps today. Excuse the parrot talking in the background 😂

    Gritters have been out tonight in Croydon treating the primary routes as a precaution.

    The snow will add to the icy conditions.

    Think that little window of opportunity has now closed for parts of Essex and Kent and any showers in the North Sea don’t look potent enough to move inland and will lose their intensity.At least some saw a few flakes and I think things will get interesting in the next 10 days and hopefully the patient SE forum will hopefully see more substantial snow👍❄️

    Just missed out on the good snow last night with all the areas nearby turning into narnia ❄️ 😆 Currently -2.3 C here (usually takes a bit of effort to get frosty being so near the coast) but the impressive thing my dewpoint just hit -5 which is very good going for me 🥶 

    It will soon be Spring and Midge Season not long now lol

    A tiny dusting in Hither green SE London tonight.

    Radar showed it as rain, certainly snow.

    Sticking of course

    A fantastic EPS and clusters tonight also for 3rd week of Jan!

     

    I'd fear not for those that haven't seen so much as  flake of snow yet as every passing day that North Sea is cooling down rapidly now and Europe will be much colder when/if we do get another Easterly. Definitely feeling optimistic tonight lets see what the coming days show night all

    Good Morning, same here near Maidstone..  Nothing.

    We have been so unlucky over the past 2 week. Not a single flake here. We've had snow forecast to come in from the West only for it to dive down into France then we were promised it from the East only to get Thames streamers as Rain for a few days and finally we saw snow forecast to come down from the North yesterday only for it to dive down across the south west..  How unlucky is that lol..

    Latest longrange BBC forecast last night shows lots of battle ground snow next week in a line I hate to say this but North of the M4. Hopefully we will be rewarded soon...

    Nice hard ground frost this morning, fog that rolled in last night has gone and light blue skies appearing, hopefully the sun will make an appearance today too.

    I actually think this is worse than being in a flat pattern with milder temps.... at least you then know there is zero hope of snow and can be more accepting if it. To be sooo close, to see the potential in the charts, to have the synoptics, to have the freezing cold temps and STILL no snow is so cruel!!!😭😭 Come on weather gods, give us a break!!😆

    Feel like this feeling will now continue even more with the hopes and dreams of the SSW and what that MIGHT bring!!! But until the effects of that touch ground we've a milder (but still wet!) week ahead but at least I won't be so cold in this cold house!! Let us keep looking forward and hope this SSW delivers - if not then roll on Spring and back to my gardening!!!xx

    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 white cliffs of Dover.

    Beautiful scenes. Very strange cloud formations from Folkestone to Lympne. A few grains of snow this eve mixed in with some sleet. Really was hoping for more from this latest cold spell but hey you win some you lose some 😀. Let’s hope this potential upcoming SSW can deliver in the right location. It’s certainly beginning to show some trends that look quite exciting for us cold and snow fans. Fingers crossed it will deliver this time!!!!!!

    There’s a few of us from Folkestone and surrounding areas now 😊

    The cloud and fog stuck on the hills all day yesterday, very pretty.


    This morning, it’s showing 1.5c, DP 1.3c on my station.

    From perusing the 00z Model Runs you would think the GFS 00z was broken last night and did not even run at 4am given the lack of commenting on it which means only 1 thing its showing Atlantic driven westerlies and South Westerlies until the end of its remit (24th Jan) Lots of chat on the ECM as its showing a Rain to Snow event for Central areas on Wednesday into Thursday which I dont buy with -2c Uppers, the best chance of anything white this coming week will be from the Penines North Eastwards into NE England where better synoptics are in place much like what the Meto showed a few days back.

    So looks like a very bland 5-10 days coming up as the Models get to grips with the SSW and still expecting some exciting charts end of next week around the 13-15th which will start showing good prospects as we enter the last week of January.

    Can confirm that it Sleeted and at points Snowed last Night and piled up a whopping 1 Millimetre in some places but unforrunatly my phone was charging. 

    I live just in front of a field so you can imagine the mist looks beautifull and it does.
