    My dad phoned me from Suffolk to say that he had heard that Sussex and Surrey will get a load of snow on 18feb - I asked where he got this info from - daily express apparently 🤦‍♂️😩😆

    To be fair, they called this spell..... Along with the 30 other blizzards this year.  It is a bit like betting on every horse in the Grand National and then claiming a winner!

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

    So surely there are no posters who say the Amber wasnt warranted now ?? I know not every area in the Amber got what an Amber warning deserved but plenty of places did. When Storm warnings are Issued n

    Definitely darker clouds to my north, but not to my east. Frustrating I sit just outside that moderate band. Need wind to swing even more ENE soon 🤞

    This last hour has allowed things to dry up round here.the wind has got up here in Locksbottom and the temperature fallen away again to -1.7 so think we will have another ice day as we peaked at -0.1 for about 5 minutes about an hour ago when we saw 2 or 3 glimpses of sun.Cloudier now and as James Gold said in Bromley the moderate snow is north of here now.Eyes on will wind shift back to an ENE?Estuary still looks lively to me so if there is a shift then it could be game on again for NW KENT and Surrey.Amazing how such a subtle change in wind direction makes that 6-10 mile shift in the streamer.

    Btw have a look what a real streamer does in the Scotland thread-Dundee is getting buried this Argo!!the intensity of the showers is incredible up there!!
     

    stay safe

    No where in the se has amber today, do they? There's a blanket yellow and rightly so to, my road is an ice rink. Although the nice people that live on the hilly road up to here, have cleared one side of the pavement, so it's safe to walk. Life savers they are, wouldn't have been able to get down the local shop at all otherwise. Slipped on the flat of my road once. Still have snow where people haven't walked. So I don't think the sun's going to melt it all but some has gone obviously. Roads are unusable unless you know what you're doing car wise. Tires slip.

    No amber but I wouldn’t be surprised if one was issued over night into tomorrow

    O. Just been in the Mods.

    Not many happy people so quickly got out...

    Temp is now back at or below zero...

    Good ground cover still but had some melting on path areas. Will be very icy this evening..

    The low behind the one sliding under now, blows up like a balloon, due to a slight high between the two, giving it a positive tilt, SW, round. But that doesn't mean much, it still has to fight the block. The out come of that, is far to far away, to know the out come.

    Afternoon all,

    Couldn't give you a figure on the number of times I was close to slipping on my backside earlier. Have advised mother not to venture out - going to go up to her and my sisters tomorrow with their shopping - not to mention Dear Leader's Sheba!

    I reckon there’s a little glitch on NW radar. That little very light stretch from Orpington to gravesend hasn’t moved despite heavier stuff round it. I’ll see if I’m right in a bit if heavier stuff gets to me soon. Certainly become darker...

    Icicles are starting to appear here now hanging off the eaves sure sign that we had about 4 hours of above zero temperatures this afternoon and the temp is once again nosediving. Sorry to say going to be an ice skating rink tonight again. Sublimation today has been pretty bad as well, the 8cm on the grass from first light has reduced to 5cm now and even with some hefty snow showers in the last few hours.

    Just for fun, quick screen grab of all models projected wind direction at my location - seems the shift back towards the NE will be around midnight if I am reading these correctly? This is at the surface. Even more fun, you can move the slider up and look at conditions at different heights!

    I appreciate that those in the west of the region have been very unfortunate and I feel their pain,I have been there many times over the years but at least they received snow a couple weeks ago when those further east got none👍

    I beg to differ... nothing down on the West Sussex coast, unless your calling my now disappeared 0.0025 cm just enough to make a snowball-bearing an event?

    Those of us around Worthing have not had a decent fall in years... probably 2013, I'm sure Sleety will remember. I don't begrudge anyone the snow they have and I hope they make the most of it, but don't fall into the trap of thinking everyone in the region has seen a decent fall because a lot have not.

    My hopes are pinned on tonights possible streamer or a snowy breakdown 🤞

    Max here -0.9C now -1.3C and DP -5.1C. Wind strengthening. Just had a 29mph NE gust. Feels bitter. Think we have our 3rd consecutive ice day in the bag.

    Bright sunny spells.
