    So 10 year old has woken up, and despite no ' winter wonderland' that he had hoped for he's still fairly positive he will see snow today.

    is it still set on? According to an app I'm at 1c here in Ipswich I only have apps to go on - can anyone assist me with a temperature and dew points please? 
     

    ipswich (I'm about 4 miles outside of it) was right in the heart of the amber zone - really do hope it's still going to happen.

    read some posts that the snow/cold is delayed? What may have caused this? If true?

    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.

    XCWeather showing much lower dewpoints now coming in across East Anglia!

    Hopefully, they will quickly spread South

    Morning everyone - woke up to a lot of no outside 🤦‍♂️
     

    Temps at 2.2c with a dp of 1.2c. Fingers  crossed we get something! 

    The maps suggest we are right on the edge of the 24-hour continual flow of snow!

    Yet another absolute flop for those further west to add to the rest of the flops this winter.

    Maybe but most of us a lay people. I couldn't begin to understand the complexities involved. Look at a few weeks back when we were due that big event from the South West. Good snowfall touted. What happened? It slid way in to Northern France hardly dropping a flake. Its been a crap year, don't blame people for being disappointed. Great if it happens but people are tired of it going tits up at the last moment, and it can so often go tits up. Instead of mocking people maybe practice little understanding and reassure them eh?

    Why would anyone need reassurance or understanding from a stranger on an internet forum??

    Perspective needed here, its not a life or death situation - its grown adults throwing their toys out of the pram because it hasn't snowed.

    Mansion dew point 0 on XC weather so I’d expect it to be -0.3 or so here being further inland. It’s slowly happening!

    Horrible Gap setting up about 20 miles in width from Ipswich down through to South Essex.

    Good to see Chelmsford is in the western precip band that should head down into NE and SE London
