    I suppose not really weather related but I just wanted to say thank you all so much.  I've really really enjoyed following the posts today.  I am awaiting Open Heart Surgery sometime this year and you

    Oh my f**king god. How many times does it need saying? 1. The amber doesn't expire until tomorrow midday 2. Widespread heavy showers & streamers are going to follow later, tonight,

    Evening. Here's my estimated #snow depths for England and Wales that I expect until noon on Monday, using a blend of high resolution models.

    looking further ahead - 18z GFS does indeed keep the cold coming for a good 10 days.

    Lots will change - but I am now thinking a swift breakdown from the Atlantic is now looking like a big outsider.

    Just popped into the Mods .

    Everyone's very happy.

    Bitter cold -14uppers coming back in nxt weekend.

    Here in S.E we never get above freezing at 2m all week..😁😁

    The cold uppers are really uncertain at the moment, there is a really cold upper pool nearby but no certainties it gets anywhere close to our shores. I suppose on the upside its already made it once, so the pattern is possible,

    Far more likely though is we keep a cold SE airflow that is cold but dry at the surface. Could see some impressive icing of lakes, etc over the next 10 days with only a small window for melt on a few days around mid afternoon, so 21hrs below 0 and a few hours above is not going to stop the lakes, etc from freezing up. That alone will make things look very wintry!

    Here at Silver Hill on East Sussex/Kent border temperature is dropping in a linear fashion at about 1C per hour since 8pm. Now +4.2C DP 3.7 so I'd reckon that means precipitation will be of snow by around 2am. Which is broadly what is suggested by the hourly app data. I have 110 metres so will be slightly ahead of surrounding areas.

    Yep

    Expecting 10cm tomorrow and then streamer should add another 10cm on Monday, should have 20cm going into Tuesday locally.

    Great thing is snow will stick around all week, with freezing fog and rime and then cold carries on into next weekend

    Indeed, I don't think any snow on the ground will being going anywhere soon.  Only problem for my location is it needs to snow!  However, I'm sure there will be opportunities during the coming week, even if I don't get much during the next couple of days.

    A small suggestion from someone born in 1965.  Turn off your apps, log off the internet, light your paraffin heater with its purple liquid and heady aroma and fire up your coal fire.  Make sure your net curtains in your bedroom are away from the glass so they don't freeze to the windows.  Watch one or maybe all two forecasts a day on the BBC and supplement it with a look at the weather charts in your daily newspaper.  After that, go out for a walk or 3, watch the clouds, check the wind direction.

    In an emergency when you are worried it might not snow, write a letter to someone that lived in a maybe more snowy place and post it first class.  Ask what they are seeing.  Enclose a SAE and you'll get a reply about 4 days later.  By which time it will either have snowed or it won't and you won't need to worry any more.

    There will of course in the meantime be power cuts and a 3 day week plus a bit later some fear of a nuclear winter.  But the main thing these days is to get in a ferment about whether promised snow has shown up on the festering Internet or not 🤪

    Great stuff love it . Bang on. I can remember heading across to the local river with a big torch in 1987 to check If the snow was coming . It did obviously but the sheer excitement of not knowing in those days was amazing .

    5-10 cms possibly borderline 10-15cm here in south London I’d take that right now.

    We moved a few years ago used to be 135ft asl but now down to 81ft asl so marginality is awful for here

    Just up the road though in Rayleigh it can get to around 200ft asl and thats only 3 miles away

    Not in St Albans it wasn't. Snow was predicted earlier in the week to start at midnight, by yesterday evening it had been brought forward to 10pm, now it's been shoved right back to 3am.

    This is getting beyond a joke. It's just gone even further back to 6pm Sunday evening. 

    At this rate we'll not see a single flake all week.

    I have a terrible lack of lampposts outside my university room! I might build one for myself outside if it looks like this cold is set to continue for a while!

    Just as a footnote I wasn’t looking in the river just a big field away from the lights that had a river in it. The torch spotted the first snowflake , the rest is history ! January 1987

    With the flooded fields all over the place, the next week or so may be better suited to ice skating than snowman building !  Whatever you get, it’s just the weather people !

    Ha you put Maidstone in the sweet spot but to be honest I think the 20 cm area should  primarly include the east Kent downs between Canterbury ,Ashford and Dover.
