    Is it my imagination or is the midkent streamer moving a bit further East in the last few frames?

    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.

    I suspect by the end of tomorrow there will be plenty of parts around the amber warning that will have similar amounts. You may well be on for 30cms, I'm sure someone will end up getting in that ballpark.

     

    Kold  what’s best we can hope for in your  old stomping ground.

    would love to know why the radar is doing such a bad job over Norfolk currently, but nice to hear that Norwich is finally in on the action!

    been light snow in Dereham for over an hour now from a stream of showers, can't help but think no matter how much falls now the roads are going to be treacherous now its decided to stick on them!

    Same here in king’s Lynn.

    Looks like my location will be in the corridor of death for the next couple of hours, unless there is a shift in wind direction

    Generally about 2cm but pavements and roads all clear.

    End of run

    Yes the model shows higher than I have stated, but at this moment it is better to be conservative and then be delighted if some spots see big totals.

    Well that run has got me with a couple of cms by the end. We therefore know to bin that run because thats not happening 😎 I know technically the fax charts have a convergence line over my head but frankly I will believe it when I see it!

    AROME and ARPEGE suggesting another 10-20cms in that amber zone still to come which will give totals anywhere from 15-30cms in large parts of Eastern EA and Kent.

    On a NE its not the best possible direction, much depends on how wide and strong the airflow is really and how much westward it drifts before it decays again. 

    Once it shifts ENE later on Monday then I think your probably on for a decent shot at snow again.

    They're not really streamers, more organised bands. True streamers set up over relatively warm water, generating a "stream" of convection.

    Best snow of the day now! Everything going white in my garden! 

    Yep more snow has settled here in the last hour than it did all day. Roads, pavements, cars, grass all covered in a nice dusting.

    I’d be very happy with that !

    I wont....This is , so far turning into a big big disappointment here in herts. It seems that the areas that start off with the snow end up with the snow and others dont get anything. Such a shame as this synoptic pattern is very rare nowadays and you just feel that when it happens you want to make the best of it . Such big weather systems with powerful forces at play however when it comes to snow , well it seems they are just not capable of producing it on a widespread scale these days. Are well, only weather.

    The frontal system is easing off, was always expected to be replaced by heavy showers/streamers as colder air begun generating convection & winds switched round as the low pulls south. 

    I suspect that's mainly the reason for the amber.

    I think the amber is for the remains of the frontal system. Once this has cleared I suspect we will have the odd shower otherwise fairly dry unfortunately. Hope I’m wrong

    Ha, I was literally about to flag that fax chart and tag you...

    I'm torn between wanting it to hit you so you have your snow (and more importantly my own comments last night seem more prescient), and hoping that there's still time for it to end up 60 miles further East so that it hits me instead...

    Well after a whole day of snow and little accumulation it's now frozen solid out there and way cold enough for it to stick but the radar don't look good with the band weakening. Its saying snow all night for our area but I'm failing to see that right now.

    well its been snowing all types of snow flakes from graupel the large snow flakes since 7am. Its mainly been very small flakes but has built up to give around 3cms. It took until around 4pm and a blizzard of graupel to eventually cover the roads and pavements and that has lasted as the temps fell below 0c, and the icicles began to form. It was very still about 10 mins ago but the wind has just wipped up again and more grains of snow are falling. The met office app for Kenley is showing that the temp won't get above freezing until new Saturday lunchtime 🙂

    In the amber warning zone (just)

    hours of "heavy snow" forecast

    Don't know where its coming from because it definitely isn't here.

    Wondering when the next chance is going to be as this was an epic fail here.

    Newhaven update. T -0.1 D -2.2.

    Capture.thumb.PNG.2f5fbcc28b7b3868b0027478d9549fb5.PNG

    Well this is frustrating. I currently have a snow accumulation of zero centimetres. Nothing. Nada 😁

    I think that my expectation levels went a bit high and I believed my own hype.

    BUT... I saw my first snowflakes today in almost three years. For that I am thankful. The possibility also remains that more snow may fall at any time from now until at least Friday so despite the frustration there are many reasons to be cheerful 🙂
