As as per the last cold spell, will this thread split amicably for a cooling off period followed by a mild reconciliation?

I think it probably needs to be tbh, most Northern and Anglia members are looking like getting the white stuff and most Kentites and Sarf of the dreaded (Nuke It) M4 Looks like rain currently.

Will be a strange old thread come Sunday night into Monday, could be a bit spicy!

"Might be because winds follow through the bristol channel and along the thames creating a warmer pocket of air due to reletively warm waters, along what looks like the M4 but really the estuary and river"

Perfect Storm,

I've always thought that myself, the 2 bodies of water, Thames Estuary and Bristol Channel modifying temps south of the M4 corridor.

The bulky landmass of E.Anglia helps those north of London as cold seems more entrenched over that part of the country, just before a frontal attack from the S.W.

Also of course, counties south of the Thames are that much closer to the modifying temps of the English Channel too.

Regards,

Tom.

Those of us in the south of the region need that NE'erly next week and snow showers generated by the North Sea. It rarely fails to give a covering at leastwub.png They seem to be elusive atm and vanish at two days notice. grr!.... On the basis of current thinking I am starting to hope on an IMBY basis that this low pops it clogs out of the way asap , so that the snow showers can (hopefully) take over.cold.gif

It could do, I guess it depends how busy it gets and how geographically anything that gets to us falls.

I've given up on the model charts this morning, you can just about find anything you want if you look hard enough. I think the hi-res stuff tomorrow morning might be better, but even then it seems to be a lot of guesswork and hoping.

I have a real feeling we might get enough north sea convetion to see some unexpected snow for the south of east anglia. It's happened before and it will happen again, Where i am in the region doesnt look favourable at all for decent accumulations but i have a hunch it will change nearer the time.

"Oh scrat,

Just 10 miles SSE from here but a world away in weather terms, its just not fair!

Once went on a snow chase to Biggin, many moons ago, cold rain with a few flakes in Bromley Town centre, turned to wet snow at Bromley Common, then heavy snow and settling at Keston, by the time I reached Biggin Airport, a few inches and hammering down with the white stuff, then further up to the High Street and probably 3 to 4 inches on the ground. Got back to Bromley again and nothing but wet roads and pavements, literally 7 miles away, unbelievable but of course 350/400 feet lower in altitude.

Oh why couldnt the whole of the Bromley area have another 150 mts or so of altitude, mind you we probably all say that!

Regards,

Tom"

It's so true, literally down the road and very different with regards to the weather. I remember 18th December 2010,when I was at work in Bromley, my husband was calling me saying how bad it was in Biggin, however, I poo pooed him because we had very wet snow in Bromley that, at the time wasn't settling. When he finally convinced me to leave the changing scenery and scenario on the way home was incredible. Total white out passing Leaves Green and then had to abandon my vehicle...that'll teach me and of course he loved being right acute.gif

Current conditions here are bright, although big clouds fluffing up (mmm, I'm so technical), fairly warm in the sunshine and snow slowly disappearing (would give you a temp but my thermometer has gone a bit tease.gif and showing a temp of 22 degrees). Off to do another snow dance, now I've had my Spitfire Cafe breakfast and free latte at Waitrose. Have a good day!

Genuinely? I really haven't a clue about anywhere in our region at this moment. If I were betting on the outcome though - I wouldn't....

The models will have more clue as to what the low will do once it has formed, which I do not think it has yet. But I do trust the met fax charts, they have been wrong before though, also the met office modals will also have more clue once the low exists.

Clacton the 2 locations of NE US and SE England are not really comparable though in terms of snow potential at any given time though are they. If anything I am amazed we get any noting our environment. So maybe your living in the wrong country. :-)

UK news today!

So what if NE America is getting 2 foot of snow! Couldn't care less.

If the UK had all that land mass to the west of us with no Gulf Stream then we would have had 2ft by now.

Why do we always get compared to America and slag off our own pitiful amounts of snow each time we are compared to them. How comes noone ever compares snow amounts to Russia? Or Sweden? Or Norway?

For a tiny little island on the end of a Gulf Stream stuck right next to a warm Atlantic I think we do pretty well for Snow!

well it was broadcast at 11.51 and i imagine it must have been prepared at least an hour earlier from the morning data. maybe the warnings are after extra data has appeared from in house models. its not far off the warnings. 30 miles here or there.
