First heavy snow of the winter is forecast for Thursday and Friday here on the dark side of the Pennines...followed by sunshine and cold air all weekend. Could be a fantastic time to be off work with the kids.

Bring it on!

It's snowing very lightly in Ipswich just now.

It's just heavy enough that you can see a few flakes so I'm expecting a travel broadcast of disruption and region-wide chaos if it continues for more than 10 minutes.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Few flakes in Chesham this morning, few more forecast. It's not meant to be heavy though.

It is however brass monkey cold.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Had a few flakes in Hook (in Hampshire) this morning and last night
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Jonathan Agnew on test match special seems to be quite amused that its snowing in London.

Heavy snow in central London. Well, people seem to think so. 10 minutes of the stuff and it's not settled.

Honestly Mr Weather, if you're going to do a job, do it properly and snow hard!

I currently have about 6 inches of snow, and it's minus 3 Celsius. Rest of the week is around -5 to -7 Celsius, probably with more snow.

Awesome! laugh.gif

Nowt in Queensbury yet. Honestly, what's the point in living 1200ft up if you don't get snow in December. Come on weather, sort it out

you're too close to the sun up there - that's why Queensbury is know as being in the tropics - East anglia, that's where you want to be!

Nice bit of snow in Queensbury overnight - nowt down in Sowerby Bridge though so lots of pointing at the car* on the way in to work.


* The snow on the car, not the car itself, Sowerby Bridge has had cars since last year

Excellent. My work Christmas party tonight, so this is a useful coincidence.
