    Well it actually feels warm outside. Incredible

    Still looking good for weds onwards next week, just hope the warmth lasts into next weekend. It'll feel even warmer than it shows though, we've only been above 10*C a few times this year, maxes this past week have been 6-8*C. Temps into the 20s plus humidity is going to feel extreme!

    Yes a wild night out there, strong north wind with sleet and wet snow. Very wet day today, feels more like January than April!
  4. I'm hoping for the opposite, the last cold March was 2013 and that was a decent summer, first for a number of years up here. Does anyone know how the background signals compare to 2013? I'm getting married in early June so as long as it's warm and dry for then I'm happy!

    Snow sticking readily now the sun has gone, about a cm on the grass, thin covering on tarmac. Temp -2.4C. Radar looking good for here this evening.

    Absolutely hammering it down here being blown all over the place in this gusty wind. Always impressive to see snow settling at this time of the day this late in the season. Just need these gaps in the showers to close up, the sun makes quick work on what has settled. Showers definitely looking beefier on the radar now.

    Moderate snow blowing around here in between sunny spells. Temp -0.2C. The beast returns!

    Chuffed for those in the south of the region getting in on the snow action! Didn't make it up here, just lovely sunshine. To be honest I'm done with winter now, roll on spring.
  9. Quite a decent winter here, consistently cold/ chilly, no extreme mild or wet. December had a very cold spell near the beginning with at least one ice day and thin cover of snow. January lots of polar maritime air, plenty of falling snow, few inches in the ground mid month. February was cold, no mild air to speak of, plenty of falling snow and finished with the beast from the east. I'd rate the winter overall 8/10.

    Light sprinkling overnight, hopefully that ppn heading north will stay as snow. Temp 1.6C. Looking forward to spring starting now and watching the garden grow but I think this year will be a slow burner, plenty more cold snowy snaps to come and prob lots of sleet and cold rain too!
  11. A very potent cold spell, I've never experienced an East wind that strong before, plenty of branches around and I've spotted three trees down. Venturing out on foot on Thursday was quite extreme with the wind and spindrift whist climbing over waist deep drifts. The wind definitely the notable feature of this spell. Snow depth- 6in, 3-5ft drifts. Falling snow- 4 days Snow lying- 5 days and counting Lowest temp- -6.3C Lowest max- -1.2C Lowest dew point- -14.2C Ice days- 3 consecutive.

    Just an extra inch overnight on top of the 5 from yesterday. Snowing lightly all morning, wind really getting up, lots of spindrift.

    Hard to tell how much we've got here because of the small drifts but prob in the region of 4/5 inches. Snowing again now and still -4C!

    Cracking winter's day today. 2 cm of snow and sunshine to start then heavy and light showers through the afternoon. Temperature already at -2.4C and potentially lots more showers to come over night.
