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.

NO snow in kent please. Ignore Toby.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:18:24

Blimey, already Toby! <kicks self at not being able to warn more people>

Puppy, it is a lovely surprise if you like snow, a last hurray!

MandragoraWurzelstock Mon 01-Apr-13 09:19:53

nothing here yet, about 10 miles from Toby I think

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:20:39

Anyone else startled at the amount of snow they have?

PuppyMonkey Mon 01-Apr-13 09:21:21

No, I mean if it is expected, it's not really a surprise...grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:23:24

Nothing would surprise us nowadays sad
Except if it got warm! Now that would be an unbelievable surprise!

Can we have a few locations and counties sprinkled around these reports please?
It's very frustrating.

TheNebulousBoojum Mon 01-Apr-13 09:24:46

Or put where you live on your profile?

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:24:56

Toby is Kent, I can't remember where sparkling is. Hope she is ok!

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Apr-13 09:31:34

I'm still here watching the cars trying to get up the road.

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:32:31

Perhaps it's safer to stay at home. How deep is it now?

TheNebulousBoojum Mon 01-Apr-13 09:32:38

In Kent, Sparkling?
Or the Cairngorms?

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:34:53

Cairngorms is due to get fog tomorrow. That doesn't sound like fun!

TheNebulousBoojum Mon 01-Apr-13 09:36:57

All that atmospheric

Think the sky is getting brighter - still hoping for sun and no snow before little dog walk at 10.30
Perhaps I should go out now before it snows.

Really, sparkling? Not a flake here in Kidd!!

MooncupGoddess Mon 01-Apr-13 09:39:53

Aargh - I'm supposed to be on a boat sailing down the Essex coast later today. The Met Office forecast looks fine, do you think the polar low will affect us?

DizzyHoneyBee Mon 01-Apr-13 09:41:35

Sparklingbrook, I don't believe you for a minute - unless you have freak weather conditions just a couple of miles down the road grin

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Apr-13 09:41:49

Ooh sassy I believe it is very localised. My Dad is 2 miles away hasn't had a flake. shock

Sparklingbrook Mon 01-Apr-13 09:43:49

Freak i tell you Dizzy. You are so lucky.

LillethTheCat Mon 01-Apr-13 09:43:51

ooh its just started snowing here in North Yorkshire too. So its not just the south. Hope it doesn't lay

OhYouBadBadKitten Mon 01-Apr-13 09:44:08

That's the nature of these lows, they are very discrete. (In the science sense not the keeping a secret sense!)

digerd Mon 01-Apr-13 09:45:09

I think it's an April Fool. Still looking at the sky for it breaking up into blue and looks promising < wishful thinking>

I think you should be ok where you are digerd. Enjoy your walk and check your inbox smile
