    Looking at the Meto site the warnings for most of the SE have been removed.

    Think I will stop looking now as it's too dissapointing to get my hopes up for some snow only for them to be dashed a day later :doh:.

    I prefer it when it's more set in stone rather then very marginal.

    Where's your sense of adventure? :acute:

    Well so many different opinions on the models etc., I'm going to do what I always do in these cases, keep one eye on the radar and one eye to the sky! Good luck all, don't be too disappointed/ecstatic!

    Well, just set a first here for me.....

    Current Temp: 5.7C

    Dew Point: I don't know

    And it's Snowing!

    I can only think dew points must be extremely low to counteract the high temp. Never actually witnessed this before in England. Many times in continental Europe but never here. :acute:

    I too was expecting the warnings for most of the South East to be removed this morning. However, as others have said I agree that anyone could well see some suprise snowfall at some point this week. Someone on here yesterday mentioned the 6th January 1994. After a day of torrential rain and flooding, temperatures plunged as daylight faded (result of evaporative cooling?), turning the heavy rain to sleet, then heavy snow. Some places had up to 6 inches of snow that evening, with the worst affected areas being generally to the north and west of London, although a fair few parts of the SE had a good couple of inches of lying snow. As far as I can remember this wasn't forecast earlier in the day, and flash warnings went out on the evening BBC forecasts just as the snow started to fall. I'm not saying this will happen in the south this week, but I feel it's certainly a possibility and wouldn't be suprised to see something similar.

    theres some showery ppn heading our way from nw quite a thin line this first one , the dew points still low enough for snow to fall at a higher temp but will rise later i think.

    had snow flakes at 3c !smile.gif

    the meto advisorys have moved about last few days and may move again, but then it be an orange in a place that dont have a yellowbiggrin.gif

    surprised to see dew points quite low in comparison :)

    Makes it a bit more interesting to see what does (or doesn't) fall from the sky later on then, I'm not putting any bets on the outcome in this region.......

    cheers coast smile.gif temps feel a touch warmer than they are due to less wind today. suprised to see dew points quite low in comparison smile.gif

    Yeah its thanks to the fact we still have the cold drier air from Europe over the SE corner of the UK, the front working its way down from the NW is bringing in a mild sector and that sets up for the front stalling as both airmasses 'fight' it out so to speak.

    Yep and interesting a decent number of the GFS ensembles from the 06z suite bring that feature into the SE, I'd imagine it would be a very marginal set-up but may well be worth watching as well I feel...

    interesting wk for most id think in all uk!
