    Finally after a lot of snow falling from the sky yesterday but amounting to very little, the showers overnight have given me a dusting

    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.

    It's horrible thou if you need to go to work, it's enough to be dangerous but not enough for a Snow Day! 😞

    Well take extra care and stay safe: it must be horrid and unsettling for you. I have been reading lots of reports about driving conditions. Ice is going to be a problem for many who walk too. 😟

    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 🤣 

    We have a very minor dusting now too.

    Looking at the radar the snow band seemed to weaken as it approached Saltdean,then incredibly reinvigorate as it hit Brighton.

    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.

    Yeah same. So wanted a day off work with the kids. I got a bit aggy yesterday about it but felt so let down by the weather. It’s hard to describe but, for me, snowing is about as close as I can get to recreating being a kid and that feeling of anticipation around Christmas. My wife laughed but it’s true. It’s so frustrating because prior to the snow we had 12 hours of persistent, heavy rain. We finally get it cold enough for snow but the precipitation seemed to fade out pretty quick in my opinion. Yeah some spots did well and I’m super jealous but god it was like pulling teeth yesterday here with it. Dire really

    Defo got some more overnight in canterbury! Now all surfaces have a good covering. It is still snowing lightly too. However, roads looks like an ice rink. Hoping for this light snow to continue for the day! Looks like it will according to forecasts with the odd heavier bit possible. Hope more people get some! Met certainly confident I’ll see more, heavy snow on and off all day, taken with a pinch of salt tho!

    This is my parents garden in Ipswich this morning, they estimate about 8inches/20cm of snow. Still snowing but only lightly, however I reckon they can expect another 5 to 10cm over next couple of days! I never saw that much snow in the 23 years I lived there with them!!

    Lots of Snizzle after some Moderate Snow around Midnight. 

    We are still too close to the sinking and fading Darcy but am hopeful the period from Midnight tonight until Midday Tuesday will bring along proper snow showers that at least might go yellow and orange on the radar intensity and not this light and dark blue rubbish.

    Roads around here were lethal last night, nobody I have spoken to has even seen a Gritter on the roads. Most of the Hills (Yes believe it or not we do have Hills around here) were death traps, Bread and Cheese Hill, Crown Hill, Church Lane all bad, the hill on the A127 from Fairglen into Rayleigh Weir was also closed for a time last night due to accidents.

    Stay safe out there its the ice thats the talking point at the moment not the snow, but there could be some deeper falls as we go into Tuesday. Then a couple of dry days and drying days to firm up the ground below the snow as its really muddy still underneath the snow cover.

    It’s just light snow. Doesn’t look to be moving at all. Bit like the fine rain you’d get soaked in but it’s snow today!

    Lightest of dustings overnight to add to what we had yesterday but not expecting any more today where we are. We did OK I suppose, bearing in mind less than 5 miles SW got next to nothing.

    Also, LOVE how this cold spell seems to just be extending slowly. Models always underestimate  the block. Can’t see snow melting for at least 4/5 days! Wasn’t it meant to be fully mild by Wednesday!

    stay safe on the roads! 

    temp -1.2

    Pretty poor here overall. Probably 1cm tops, I bet there are places in the west of England that have done better. Convection blowing way further inland up north, just decaying rubbish down here.

    Euro 4 going for a Baltic snow train for the next couple of days (nice to see these realising that most of the showers will develop there under even colder air and travel this way). It would deliver a solid covering here (despite being well inland from where the showers come in). Commuting to work could be interesting, or in particular going home given I am on the afternoon shift and will be leaving at 10pm.

    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..

    Like that almost permanent snow for my area due to the  Thames Streamer. Wind direction doesnt change much all day

    Nice to wake up to everything completely white, if only about a centimeter at most. 

    Looking east now at the changing direction and build of the precip in the estuary.

    Slight top up overnight of probably another cm, even the garden has a drift of snow to one side.

    Bitterly cold outside, current temp -3.1C, DP -4.8C. No worries of marginality.

    the snow is impressively heavy still! nice big flakes hammering it down, if it got any heavier it’d be bordering on blizzard conditions

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
