    Met Office Weather Warning: Snow: Sunday And Monday: South East And South West

    Link: Severe weather warnings - Met Office



    A spell of sleet and snow is expected, starting on Sunday evening in SW England, and affecting southern England more widely on Sunday night and Monday morning. Snow will be accompanied by a strong easterly wind which will accentuate the very cold feel. Accumulations of 3 - 5 cm could occur quite widely over southern counties, and the public are advised to be aware of this wintry hazard.

    Snowing here now. The flakes are quite large but the snowfall is not what you would call heavy.

    Forecast said heavy snow over night so I woke up an hour earlier than I needed too to be prepared for it, so find not even any frost!

    We had snow on the cars in Tonbridge as I woke up. It's just started snowing again now. It's very windy and the flakes are small, but the flakes are settling

    EDIT
    And it's getting worse... Blizzard now

    We woke to a covering of snow - overlaying either heavy frost or ice. It is still snowing - very small flakes. It is about -1 here but the wind is from the East so it feels really bitter.

    Valid to Thursday in the South East. Have a horizontal blizzard out my window. Less pleased it is my work window, not my home window.
