  1. Morning all! Hope you all had a good Easter! Great to see/read all the snow reports throughout the regional threads this morning! โ˜ƒ๏ธ Snow/wintry showers risk again tomorrow - could pop up just about anywhere! Tuesday 12:00 15:00 Keep an eye on the UK all time lowest daily maximum temperature record for April - current figure to beat is -1.1C, 01/04/1917, Durham and Macclesfield. That is under threat! Aviemore, Dalwhinnie and Braemar could all get very close tomorrow! (All places have official Met Office stations) Looking further ahead

  2. Well this winter hasn't been one with a lack of snowy pictures,but I suppose it's obligatory to post them even in April.

  3. Evening all Snow/wintry showers breaking out tomorrow - especially through the afternoon! 14:00: 16:00 Looking further ahead to the weekend - below average temperatures with the risk of snow/wintry showers! Subject to change at this timeframe but UKMO/ECM going for a wintry feel at the moment! Friday 15:00 Saturday 15:00 UKMO: Sunday ECM: Sunday Way beyond that...lovely ECM seasonal update! May temperature anomalies - slightly above average for most! Rainfall anomalies

  4. Occasional showers of heavy blowing snow coming through. Lovely light powdery snow blowing around everywhere. A few people might have to do without their shopping this morning!

  5. Firstly let's keep this thread ticking over a little longer Mods ๐Ÿ˜‰ It looks like the Hunt for warm weather could be put back another month at this rate...the Summer search should begin around July! By that point we will be gearing up for the search for early cold thread! ๐Ÿคฃ All I can say is the next week looks very chilly,I'm not expecting much warmer conditions till the final 3rd perhaps early May! Just my opinion,but mother nature appears to be not playing ball so far! Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holidays folks.

  6. A dusting of snow here blowing around in a strong wind at -2c. The Arctic front coming south yesterday afternoon, Snow showers coming in off the Firth this morning Spring barley we sowed a week ago has just germinated but not through ground frozen hard could have done with a bit more snow cover but hopefully will be OK. Daffodils have all collapsed Proud winter cereals and oilseed rape will be suffering as well.No buds open on fruit trees so they should be OK. Grass will obviously have stopped growing. Newly born lambs ouside at risk of hypothermia

  7. It looks likely that, after umpteen years of Springtime near-misses, 2021 will the year in which the PV decays so cold air ends up over Blighty:๐Ÿค” Which begs the question: Where have all the coldies gone?๐Ÿ˜ And now, I'm starting to fear that we may be stuck in the current rut for far longer than I'd hoped:๐Ÿค”

  8. Stunning scenes here this morning with about 2cm of powder snow. The falling snow looks so different in the strong sunlight to what it does in the middle of winter. Cats are refusing to go out, just sprawled in the patches of morning sun on the carpet - but not in the unheated porch. The solar panels are going flat out with the remains of some small icicles dropping off now - which I guess means subzero air temp still. Achavanich just now

  9. Enough snow here to be forming small drifts in the wind. I'd say 1 or 2 cm where it is level, soggy underneath but dry and powdery on top. Currently -3C with occasional flurries.

  11. Current dew points and passage of the front southwards no doubt causing a few pleasant "surprises" in the regionals. Wrap up warm or get the fire on ๐Ÿ‘

  14. Impressive level of snow cover already, especially considering that it was 11c at lunchtime with a soil temperature well above freezing (8c). Blizzard conditions for quite a few hours now, currently -1.1c. Just hope these little fellows we saw earlier have some good shelter, otherwise that wind chill is going to literally be lethal. Dreading the frost damage on the garden, it took a hammering in February and new shoots were starting to appear on the survivors. Garden centres are going to be busy replacing the winter losses.

  15. Exciting weather. Wind blowing it bare, then sun melting other than drifts, then another squall comes in. Thus one of the better ones so far at lunchtime, though on heavy again. severe windchill 20210405_122816.mp4

  16. Shorts and t-shirt yesterday, snow flurries this morning, what's not to like, something for everyone? OK I appreciate not everyone will be as interested in the current synoptics, but they are what they are. GFS 06z really does suggest a strong Atlantic block.

  19. Light dusting of powdery snow. Just enough for a sledge. After fronts not much more happened here overnight, but heavy snow showers since dawn and radar continues to look pretty active ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  20. Snowing here, temp dropped to -2c overnight. My daffs look totally defeated with their heads now drooping. Currently -0.5c. A day by the fire with books, tea and dvd's I think. Could do a lot worse. โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

  22. Well that was bizarre. Left the house for walk in a blizzard with the roads all covered and came home an hour later with blue skies and sunshine, snow almost gone and roads bone dry. As if the snow hadnโ€™t happened.

  23. another anomaly vs op battle is emerging, because the noaa charts do not support the gfs re-load of the northerlies a la 1975 style via high pressure to our west after next weekend

  26. I knew right away by the sound it was making that it wasnโ€™t rain being blown against the windows it was wee bits of ice and snow...sure enough the tops of the cars are getting white... Snow in April...itโ€™s many many years since Iโ€™ve seen that, the last time must have been in the 90โ€™s...I was at Knockhill for the bike racing and a whiteout appeared from the north west and wiped out the days racing...I remember it being exceptionally cold that day ( normal Knockhill weather is just cold )

  27. GFS 12z is still going strong with the rather cold theme/pattern. A higher ground snow event possible on the 10th and a NorthEasterly (or pseudo NorthEasterly?) setting up after 174h. Update : And another cold Northwesterly ready to come down at 234h. Arctic just won't give up.

  28. The last but one drill of neeps for the cows,just out for an hour today and then ran back in. Roe deer grabbing the grass before the frost does. Wind chill out there today is incredible.No hope of surviving on a mountain today up here. Currently 32c and very gusty wind with snow showers in the vicinity

  29. Despite all the whining beforehand I think most of us would take this over dull and damp from the west.

  30. Some of these showers are insane... settling instantly where the sun has melted what fell overnight and then as soon as the shower stops and the sun comes out the snaw retreats back to shaded areas.

  31. Its again completing unrelating, the -5C isotherm really doesn't belong over the south coast as we head into the final tercile of April. Universal ensemble agreement out beyond ten days suggesting unusually strong confidence in the coming short to mid term period. Looks like this is going to be much more drawn out than the northerly of mid May 2013 when that notable spell of weather followed me down to North Africa and gave me max temps of 15-17C and rain in Marrakesh (when the avg should have been 28-30C)

  34. GFS continuing on its merry way this morning in fact offering up arguably the most below average ensemble pack I can recall for years with an unrelenting flow from the northerly quadrant. Utterly dire output.

  35. Must have caught a light snow shower at some point as there's evidence on the grass and the shed roof. Apart from that it's the usual northerly fare - frost and clear blue sky! What's not to like ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  36. Just a quick update.. As an example of tomorrow's snow chance here's the Gefs probability of precipitation falling as snow for the uk tomorrow.. I wouldn't read too much into it but you can see tomorrow still more likely as was said yesterday for shower activity to develop fairly widely for England and Wales, Wales will see more frequent snow showers later tonight along with possibly east anglia by the morning.. not everyone catching these. A few locations in more central parts of England possibly getting a few snow showers through the afternoon others just one or two and some none at al

  41. Yes one good thing about a northerly is it's probably the cleanest feeling, looking, smelling, breathing air you can get in your lungs. No pollution this morning that's for sure.

  43. After a dusting of early morning snow itโ€™s turned into a lovely sunny although bitter cold day. just back from a brisk walk and, as is usually the case with northerlyโ€™s, the air was crystal clear and the views exceptional.

  44. No sign of snow here, in fact not much sign of the clouds needed to bring some snow, so it's just another bright, sunny morning. Except it's cold. Temperature currently 3.4deg.C up from a minimum of -2.7deg.C at 06:56, humidity is 58%, wind 3 to 6mph northwesterly (very sheltered here from any wind with a westerly component), pressure is 1024.1hPa rising slowly, there's been no precipitation today and 1.0mm of rain in the last 24 hours, cloud cover is 1/8 and the dew point is at -4deg.C.

  45. Two things in evidence this morning: -Depth of cold uppers and dewpoints. Currently sat at 0.8 degrees, under blue skies and sunshine. Indicative the air is very cold. -Strength of sunshine. The light snow cover has disappeared where exposed to the sun. The fells also stripped clean.

  46. Yes the 0z ens for herts only show the mean struggling upto 0 by end of its run. No indication yet of any real warmth. Indeed snow making it down to cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire now on the weakening cold front. ..
