    Yep! Subtle change in wind direction overnight and showers are forming nicely over the open water and heading in this direction.

    Only a very, very light dusting on some surfaces here in Kingsbridge, would need to pep up significantly in order to have any impact. But it counts as snow!😄

    Very light snow falling on this side of the moor now

    It wasn't a lot but it was enough for a dwarf snowman

    A bit late in posting 😂 but we done very well (relatively) down here in the far west of Cornwall today. Proper snow for a solid 6 hours and unlike elsewhere in the country, no issue with settling. Set

    Overnight low of -3.3.

    Hopefully a colder day from yesterdays high.

    Looks very dry until the end of week. Good drying out weather.

    Back to average temperatures on Sunday with the end of the cold spell.

    Met Office seem to have changed my weather forecast to show light snow for much of tonight here in NE Hampshire. Some parts south of me even getting heavy snow.

    Wondering if they are catching onto the Thames streamer as winds go more E.

    Still think radar watching is the best form of forecast in this case.

    I wouldn't bank on a decent snow to rain event awd either. Tell me honestly last one you can remember that lasted more than half an hour before rain?

    That's exactly what some modelling shows, hence why I said "brief snow to rain event".  Anyway, that sort of detail isn't worth analysing yet.

    Best advice for our area of the region this morning - expect absolutely nothing, anything we do get, no matter how small, is a bonus.

    Morning all,

    Happy for some of you coastal lot getting a sugar coating overnight!

    Some more dandruff floating around in the wind this morning but still nothing noticeable on the ground as it’s waayyy too light for that! Hoping for something unexpected to appear on the radar to give us a coating.

    Im still hoping for something Thursday into Friday but we’ll see.

    No snow here (a bit floating around, not really sure that counts). However, the set up and wind direction has not thus far been conducive to it down here.

    Increased opportunities for a smattering though, as the wind should drop most of its northerly element later very shortly and becomes closer to a true easterly.

    This was mentioned on the BBC local forecast just now, looks like they are seeing a Thames streamer setting up this evening across similar areas as last night as the wind switches back to a more NE direction.

    Yep we have sizzle this side of Dartmoor too. Hope it keeps going for the next 2 weeks then I'll be able to make a snowball 😬😬

    Have no idea where this flurry is coming from as there’s nothing on the radar for miles around

    Persistent light snow here now. Getting heavier by the minute!

    The radar shows we are just on the edge of a large band of it. It seemed to appear out of nowhere, weirdly

    Some building precip in channel as the low comes in, be interesting if much develops from the south because of it. Certainly got a north push showing now. Plymouth could get the best so far and west of that area. Be interesting if anything else develops further east down the channel from it.

    Will the added moisture the low pressure off the SW coast brings help us today at all?

    Edit: Just seen @The Moving Planets post above which sort of answers that!

    Im hoping the lows pushes that streamer north a bit onto the coast as it comes through lol

    Arome model has picked out the channel streamer well;

    Should last quite a while for southern Cornwall in particular, perhaps giving a covering to higher parts down there;

    Going by this, Camborne could see more snow than Bristol out of this cold spell.  🙄🙄

    What do people think about this stuff heading west from London? Will it fizzle out or actually reach us?
