No idea why the met office haven't got warnings out....

There's a dodgy little low pressure that's spun up - not unusual in these circs that could bring wide spread snowfall later today. Those in the south should be especially aware, though it could affect those in the north and east too. If you are heading out I'd take shovels and blankets just in case.

That's a nice description of a polar low, where does it say we're expecting one?

Now is the perfect time for Kent to get a giant blizzard.

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Apr-13 09:05:13

We have woke up to about a foot of snow. shock

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:05:30

Have you got your snow shovel at the ready Toby?

TobyLerone Mon 01-Apr-13 09:07:24

I'll just send the kids out with a trowel grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:08:01

Polar lows can drop a foot or more of snow in just a fee hours shock

So does Bristol count as the South?

After a lovely sunny morning yesterday, it is dull and dismal, but freezing outside this morning, but was still hoping for the sky to clear.

Now, horror of horrors, I read about snow in the South today?
If it is an April fool, I am not amused .
Had already decided to be back in my eskimo outfit this morning after opening the door and felt colder than the freezer, but was +1. <bad tempered face>

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:14:22

Bristol is south for sure!

PuppyMonkey Mon 01-Apr-13 09:16:12

Am I the only one who is a bit grin at a surprise being expected.

TobyLerone Mon 01-Apr-13 09:16:28

I've just got up and it's hammering down shock

I'm doing a couple of cleaning jobs this morning and was about to cart the hoover out to the car. It's as deep as my car's wheels!
