    Winds will continue with more of an easterly element for much of the day now, so showers generally heading east>west, though I think weakening & fading as the day progresses. 

    During tomorrow a convergence zone will gradually sink southwards through EA, into Kent and eventually out into the channel, as shown well here by the FAX outputs

    Wed06.thumb.png.0aea4a82a707f5a24a35c64314b6ade9.png>wed12.thumb.png.7dcd3fe5453da71b43cd7cb934ddb1d5.png>Thu00.thumb.png.3ee3623b9cea428e1393b8ec4ea1412a.png

    Could give 2-5cm in places where showers frequent but it's unlikely to sit over any one area for very long.

     

     I’m reading this very differently (doesn’t mean I’m right though)

    Convergence lines are basically a slow moving trough, which would lead to persistent snow over many hours

    On those charts the convergence line doesn’t appear to move a huge distance in 12 hours?  from +24 to +36 maybe 40/50 miles.

    Meaning snow for longer and higher accumulations for those under it?

    You really need to amend your profile to include your location if you are going to refer to "here" - no-one can tell where that is.

    well it's not mandatory, and some people are wary of giving locations online. however, even an indication of location does help others. for example "south east London" may suffice 😄

    Does anyone look at this one? I use it for wind and waves in the Summer but it has lots of overlays and you can compare the different models as well as reported observations from professional and amateur stations. You can click on a point and get the stats and show readings from the nearest stations etc. There is loads of functionality I didn't even consider until viewing it now in conjunction with the snow forecast. Winds veering more ENE later so back in the game imby👍

    Yes, it's a fabulous site. Came across  just recently. The webcam function on it is awesome.😊

    Make it stop?! Think you're the only person on here who doesn't want more snow. 

    Weve had over a foot deep in places, which was nice and fun for a while, but its slushy now and icy and damn treacherous, then it stops being fun.

    Agree.

    Some places in kent , E. Sussex could spend 4-6 hrs under persistent snow streamers like today but I'm expecting more intensity tmrow..

    Not great here today temps have risen to 1.2c so far after two ice days. (Suns been in and out )

    Saying that theres not mch dripping going on  ..

    Any thoughts on West Kent area overnight and this afternoon.  It is clouding over again now.  I'm just wondering whether flock feeding will be a bit of a "Scott of the Antarctic" scenario later 😁

    Heavy snow currently falling small flakes though!

     

    So what are our chances for another streamer setting up tonight?

    The sun coming out and temps creeping just above freezing is making the snow that is falling now harder to stick around on concrete surfaces. Hope the cloud remains and sun stays in now.

    Max temp so far today -0.2c. Now -0.6c (currently a moderate snow shower). Small chance of a 2nd ice day if we can say below 0c until 3ish..

    Indeed, the rooftops, roads and pavements have lost at least 50% of their snow in the past hour and the sun is now trying to come out. As noted elsewhere, the heavier areas of precipitation from the streamer headed north of here. The local park has no one even attempting to sledge as it is muddy underfoot and little settling snow is left. A bit puzzling after such a good start. Here is the Wunderground site from Braggs of Surbiton showing 0 degrees and sub-zero dewpoints with a NNE wind.

    Maybe between 3-4 we can bring the snow line back south as winds are forecast to turn again more favourably for us and the sun lowers once again along with a temperature drop . You can see the difference in the snapshots taken .

    Still snowing lightly and there are a few icicles forming so i'm assuming the thaw has stopped.. it feels colder too.

    Looking at cloud direction, seem the wind here is ESE as well now.

    BBC graphics going for a Thames streamer tonight, and more showers into Kent on Wednesday. This underdoes the potential so in these areas I would have some hope

    There's a Thames streamer now, but it going WNW rather than wsw due to wind direction, so get Essex and north London. Should come back south later.

      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.
