    That really is an amazing graphic if that came off.A large part of EA will have 20cms and some will have half a metre of snow!!dont think I have ever seen that before for anywhere south of the Midlands in 9 years of being on this forum.Even a cheeky red bit in Kent showing 40cms.Imagine if it comes off this place will go bananas!!image.png.281b71f302ff09996902db72d94f6250.png

    Which model and run is that? Can't read it in the image.

    Well blew work out and got some fun in the Snow at last  IMG_3041.MOV

    Walk to keyworker school ended in diversion to build a snowman and a snowday.

     

    Thames streamers- where do they track? I never paid attention before as I just knew they didn’t affect us. But since moved west

    Our school texted parents yesterday to say it would be closed to key worker children today. I'll make a guess it's the same tomorrow, it actually has a genuine ice risk, and teens from out of town can't get in anyway. It's built at the top of a big hill, with very steep walk up.

    Gillingham with a nice layer now, snow still falling slowly.

    All it would take would be a solid 2 hours of medium/heavy fall for some depth to accumulate...

    I know, it's so frustrating. Just give is some heavy snow. I wanna go play!

    Persistent light snow here once again. Nice to not hear any dripping for once, and the snow that fell last night hasn’t turned into a single rock hard layer yet. Feels bitter out there!

    That streamer Norwich through Cambridge is North of me so wont benefit from that. I often end up in middle of that type of streamer and one off Thames. But still some snow right now so won't complain to much.

    To be fair , countries that get regular snowfall are better set up for it. We don't often get disruptive snow so are not.

    As we have disruptive snow once in a blue moon now you can hardly expect anyone to invest in such things as snow tyres etc.

    Would West London do well out of a Thames streamer or would that require a more direct Easterly track?

    More easterly I would say.

    Its quite possible the Euro4 will be right, you wouldn't need to be very far out on the wind direction to shift the main zone of snow north or south a fair amount.

    We won't know until it starts to form...indeed that is still an if it forms! You can never be sure with these types of things and the models are pretty poor typically, even the high resolution ones, at predicting them.

    All true. Ultimately the greatest activity later is likely to form in the estuary, however, and even if it tracks due SW, we're too far south and east here for estuary streamers.

    The Euro4 has us under a little prong of higher snow totals that extends SE off the main streak coming in from the estuary, and it showed something very similar under the original band on Sunday, which makes me think it's related to the vagaries of that particular model and it's view of this area, topography perhaps.

    Generally I'm hoping there will be as many and as wide streamers as possible, and who knows what will happen...

    You aren’t missing a thing. It’s been snowing here for 6 hours solid, if anything there’s less snow on the ground than this morning.

    My partner is working today doing deliveries for Sainsbury (this isn’t his real job, that’s events which is Non existent currently) his first issue was driving to work through rural Kent, but he made it.  These drivers are paid very little a d work in all weathers, so spare a thought for them.  Hope you get your shopping 🙂

    Sprinkling of flakes in the wind here now. Good coverage here since yesterday and the winds have ensured varied surfaces are covered. First pic shows just how deep it got in places in our sheltered front garden. Roads could be worse but also sheltered from winds which typically cause drifting around here. May be drifts elsewhere. Caked snow on road nearby but generally easy to clear at the moment, snow is quite powdery and light. When it starts to freeze and get heavy it will be more awkward. We are not far from roads into town but always get stuck when snow falls due to being in countryside (just outside of Hadleigh in Suffolk).

    Some light snowfall, can't help but say that this spell has been dissapointing for my parts so far, currently at a spariodic 2mms at best eather than 1-2cm. But there is still some time for that to change!

    Atmosphere needs a breather again sorry to bang the Storms drum but quite often when areas in the States get worked over on continuous days the SPC often refer to it as the atmosphere has been beaten up a bit 😀 give it a bit of time to dry out and more moisture feeds in later.

    I lived in Woodingdean as a child, we got very deep snow and drifts, lots of people think Brighton being on the coast escapes, but you dont have too go far inland too get the drifting snow. Enjoy and take care.

    I've always been amazed at how crazy it can get here. It will lay if it heads this way I think
