    They must be incompetent, Norfolk is pretty much flat isn't it? We drive up and down 1/4's in Yorkshire.

    I'm glad you guys are getting snow!

    Trust me, it may be flat but most people these days can't drive to the conditions.

    Mostly walking pace shunts especially on new housing estates with twisty roads, you turn the steering wheel but car continues straight into kerb etc and breaks steering/suspension.

    Despite the conditions people will still be demanding we pick their car up immediately and provide a courtesy car.

    Our claims have been pretty much normal throughout lockdown which begs the question of how many people are flouting the rules, this weather will affect us for several weeks. The owners will be happy!

    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.

    Morning guys light snow falling here again.. 

    Incredible really we were on the edge of the main stuff yesterday and light snow all day although didn't settle a soild 10 hours of light snow.. 

    Then that little band came through last night and gave us a bit of a dusting.. now light snow again... 

    Everything now frozen solid and my DP is a cracking -4!

    Hard to pin point any details today... Everyone is at risk of catching a shower or 2 and streamers etc..

    Well from the supposed 12 hours of snow the Met App and BBC forecast for my area , we just about managed enough snow to make a bowl of Cornflakes look like Frosties

    EURO4 kinda picking out the shower activity... The AROME is... Very nice charts for the region... The actual met warnings now suggest quite widely 1-3cm with anyone caught under a streamer or streams of showers 5-10cm these are daily accumulations as well.. so by Wednesday some people in the East might be over 30cm!!

    Is it being over active with the shower activity? I don't think so given the setup from today ..

    -10 uppers and even some -12 uppers approaching stiff NE - E wind which becomes even more favourable through today  

     

    The flow looks to become less favourable for showers from Wednesday morning as it veers round more northly.. So a solid 2 days of showers.. streamers and surprises..

    Looks like a few more cms has fallen overnight, the road and pavement now filled in. Snowing lightly now and the wind still blowing it around.

    Another good update from the met office with chances of snow today, tomorrow and Friday. Drier Wednesday and Thursday.

    Light snow at the moment dusting but not amounting to anything, unless we get heavier snow it’s going to be crap here

    It's crap here, too, though maybe a couple of inches has accumulated -- its not present on some surfaces (paths). So its shitey -- not enough to cause a snow day, but just enough to be bloody dangerous to travel in. I'd rather it either snowed properly, or not at all.

    While it wont look like that next run its not out of the realms of impossible in some places out east.. will be sheer pot luck where showers train better than over other areas... it will depend on the depth of convection and if we can get showers going like further north.. thats true north sea convection there

    Still coming down here , laying everywhere apart from the roads , it’s blowing around a bit so seems patchy in places .I’m hoping we can get a little more for people to enjoy but don’t want to be greedy 🤣

    Just went out for a walk - saw a couple of polar bears and a few brass monkeys!

    It is frozen out there, that wind! Snow is in drifts with scoured sheet ice on the rest of the surfaces. Hoping for more snow to cover the ice and provide a walking surface!

    Indeed. It does look a bit extreme but somewhere around that area could reach strike it big! It brings through a prolonged streamer that doesn’t move around very much.
