    The blob is still moving towards London, but does seem to be losing some of its intensity.

    Bless you!!!! I've a massive affinity for animals so I hope it returns asap and is well. Animals need our help, especially with such cold temperatures and wind chill. Prayers for all those animals and people suffering in this weather, and those affected by covid of course

    Few years back I had a pet cat (had a collar) turn up in a snow storm at night to my back door in Rainham. Let him in, gave him a tin of Tuna and a bowl of water.

    It slept under my table cuddled up to the radiator.

    Next morning when I came down it meowed, rubbed my legs and went off to find home.

    I have a feeling it’s losing its intensity and may not make it to me here in N London sadly.?

    Looks like it started going over Braintree in fairly good shape but lost intensity. I am blaming anyone from Braintree.

    Hi Daniel on the home and dry chart this big band just fizzles out, are you hopeful that it keeps its intensity ?

    It’s based on a model which didn’t forecast anything near to extent of this so disregard.

    Not sure, but the northern edge of it is getting sheared away, so its reducing in size and in intensity to some extent.

    Latest BBC graphics for Wednesday look very streamer ish! Exciting. Also said the mild would fail to get in at the weekend.

    Yes, not sure it will last long even if it gets here in one piece.

    Yep seems so hard for our locations to get any decent amount of snow from an easterly 

    May be those miles between us, but I always feel we do well. Between 2009 and 2018 we had 4 or 5 events with 6+ inches of snow, which is pretty damn good for this part of the world.

    Has been a struggle this time relatively, but everything is white and we have two inches laying plus drifts, so can't really complain.

    Unfortunately those showers forming in the estuary are struggling to drive inland at the moment, but time for that to change.

    Yes the FAX for Wednesday has a convergence zone right over our head, angling SW from the estuary over Kent and East Sussex.

    My winter life in a radar. Pretty much given up with this one now, next to nothing on the ground, gutted it’s been such a miserable failure here. I’d have settled for 3-5cm!

    Not looking good on latest radar for areas from Herne Bay down to Canterbury etc, as it's starting to shift more west now in development. West kent still looking ok! But to be honest, the precipitation rates could be better 😒

    Think you're right. Always the worry for us in this situation. Having said that, activity in last fews mins has just pepped up a bit!

    Any thoughts on longevity of this North Sea snow machine tonight?

    Likely to last the night,

    Luckily got home earlier for the 5y.o to have some fun in the drifts

    Was light snow with big fluffy flakes but in the last two minutes turned to moderately heavy snow with big fluffy flakes! On its way to you @Paul Sherman

    Hi peeps 😊

    hope everyone is well and safe. Was quite a snowy day in Walthamstow today, in fact I found today better than yesterday. The flakes were much bigger and at times there was some intensity, but mostly it was big moderate snow falling.

    Hope to see some more snow in the next hour or so from that blob heading this way. The roads are actually quite dangerous outside now saw so many people slipping today.

    Regards 😊😊

    This ppn intensity ain't cutting it, we need more yellow and orange echos rather than blues and greens. 

    Hope a proper streamer starts soon

    Hi WB, do you think there's more to come for us? Looking at the radar but not convinced it will reach us?

    What will be will be I suppose.

    Temps plummeting here now -2.9c.

    On there way to you next then Medway by the looks of the trajectory until the ENE swings them further west 

    Hi Paul, do you have a rough time of when the winds swing ENE?  I'm pinning my hopes on a Thames snow streamer tonight for my location 🤞
