The first decent North Sea convection so far this winter and it's poxy sleet.

Just to nip that Jonathan Powell quote in the bud, there's not a chance of eight inches of snow anywhere in our region tonight. Jonathan Powell is the Daily Express's go-to man for any sensational, over-hyped weather story. I would ignore it frankly.

Jonathan Powell will always refer the South-East as being in the firing zone for snow because he knows damn well that the civilian population is far greater with companies all begging at his feet for a sniff of his infamously sh*t weather forecasts.

First one in.......and it is STILL snowing here in Nw London. Incredible

Yes it's been snowing most of the afternoon while I was at my sisters in Radlett.

Useless snow though, doesn't settle but looks pretty!

More likely to see Thames freeze over or Hell freeze over for those of a religious persuasion. Hit the ignore button every time where Jonathan Powell is concerned. diablo.gif

Definitely snow in Strood!

It looks more like rain than even sleet now to me? It's definitely not snow, I am on the lower side of Strood though, if you're higher up thats probably making the difference

I'm not far from Rochester airport.... It's crazy that in such a small distance it can make such a difference

I have a temp 1c and DP 0c. It's dark raw and merky. Really starting to look forward to the light warm evenings, and the smell of freshly cut grass and BBQs. I love winter, and starting looking for the nights drawing in in August, but this winter seems to have dragged on and on as others have said. Maybe it's the lack of sunshine. Even sunny crisp days seem in short supply this winter.

I'm seeing a lot of people mentioning Wednesday night, but the Met are forecasting temps of 8 degrees Thursday and Friday so 'if' there is anything it will be extremely short lived surely? At least last nights covering stayed around for a couple of hours today!

18.00 radar returns look a bit more lively, down the river east of London.

Wouldnt be surprised to see a dusting or so in some areas, London > east.

Regards,

Tom.

Definitely snow in Strood!

In your part but might not be in the town centre for example as it's low down and by the river? The road by the a2 should be more white thou

Flooding and Potholes seem to be the main issues here this evening. Where the Snow has melted if you walk on the mud you almost sink into the ground, the water table must be saturated to the top.

Some pretty impressive water run off as well, and the roads are an absolute disgrace, btw you can sue your local council if you get damage to your car from these monsters, there is one on the inside lane of the A127 Between Wickford and Rayleigh Weir that is almost the size of the inside lane and is about a foot deep, one of my friends has already smashed his wheels up on his BMW! Claim sent to the council already! Mwahaha
