    Ready For The Snow Then?

    The Met Office has been updating the weather warnings all day.

    Here is the latest for London and the South East: Link

    It doesn't stop there though. The 'warning alert level' for the rest of the country on Monday and Tuesday is 'Be prepared' with only one more level above that one which is 'Take action'

    Link for current UK weather warnings [snow] Link

    I think there might be some school closures tomorrow: Suits me fine because I can get more done without Students and Staff getting under my feet!

    You might not be so 'smug' if you are snowed in at the airport....

    About 1cm settled snow here in canterbury, nothing too bad it keeps snowing hard for about half hour, then clears up for a bit. I get the feeling it's going to snow a lot more overnight, so here's hoping!

    I should have asked earlier: Which airport are you flying from? What does the forecast look like now for you estimated departure time?

    Nothing here yet: Bright sunshine but chilly [very chilly]

    Flying from Birmingham, flight leaves at 6am, doesn't look too terrible yet.

    BBC reckons "Light snow" until beyond 12 noon.

    Not just me that rates metcheck then. They rekon 100% chance of snow between 12:00am and 6:00am so finger crossed for waking up with a good covering
