  1. Storm inbound, radar shows some heavy rain, can hear the thunder rumbling. Edit, main storm passing just to our NW
  2. We went to York yesterday morning to pick something up, and it was very cold, 4 - 5C on the car external temp, with a little bit of winteryness at one point. I hate hot weather, anything over 23 ish makes me miserable, but this spring has been cold. One thing with living here is that we rarely get unpleasant heat. I wonder if we can finally clean the woodburner out and sweep the chimney, we usually do it once we have finished fires for the summer.
  3. Final Metoffice total for Bridlington yesterday was 13.6mm, the wettest day for some time
  4. Another day of significant showers, home missed them, but we were in Cottingham today, and had some heavy rain around 3pm, what was more surprising was the temperatures, in the rain coming home car outside temp dropped from 9 to 4C in the rain, and there was winteryness in it, not sure if it was the remnants of hail or snow, but you could see it as it hit the windscreen, this was the area around Skidby, so no real elevation. I know car temp gauges are not that accurate, but it was the drop that was significant,
  5. We are under a spell of fairly persistent rain this morning, its been raining since I got up at 5.30. Looking at Radar its seems to be quite localised. We need the rain, but of course it has to wait for the Bank Holiday weekend...
  6. Heavy snow shower here in Bempton, but not settling so far.
  7. Graupel here in Bempton, and what sounded like a distant rumble about 10 mins ago, but nothing showing on the radar, so could have been something else.

    The description fits, and it was just ahead of the cold front so was the precursor to the current cold spell. They not something I have seen before. Thanks for the info.
  9. Heavy snow shower in Bempton, whipped along by a strong wind almost horizontal past our solitary street light

  11. Just a light covering of snow on the roofs and grass when we got up, but wind is gale force.
  12. Already a light snowfall here in Bempton, and with the ground frozen solid its settling. Road which was clear and had dried is now white over.
  13. Just been to the shop in Bridlington, temperature difference is bigger than I have ever seen before, home is showing -5 Bridlington +1, I know car thermometers are not accurate, but its the difference not the actual value. Distance is 4 miles and home is 75m higher, both locations are about 1 mile from the coast.
  14. More snow at Bempton today, I've put some pictures in the members galleries. Temperature got just above freezing at lunchtime, but no real thaw, and topped up with more showers. Showers not a long lasting as yesterday, but still heavy while they lasted.
