  1. Fascinating mismatch of sun and snow you don't often see. Not the usual sodden slushy mess of midwinter.
  2. 12 or 13cm of lying snow obliterates my previous record of 2cm for this past winter. In fact the most snow since 2018. Beautiful against the clear blue sky but the strong April sun is already getting to work on it.
  3. Yeah it's the 10th April and the best snow of this winter season. Bonkers. 20210410_234237.mp4
  4. Cracking April day. Bone dry here so far when all around are reporting everything but the kitchen sink. Been sat outside in some decent sunshine. All change now. Down comes the snow. Temp dropped from 3c at 8pm to 0.5c.
  5. With what looks like a damp squib ending to what could possibly be the last cold act of the season I'd have to say its been a disappointing winter. Disappointing in that the potential, here at least, hasn't been realised. OK it's been cold and we've had possibly 25 days when snow has fallen (not been counting) but it could have been so much better with a bit more luck. The 2 wet inches on the back of that storm was the most we managed in one go. The other 24 falls of snow added together wouldn't even amount to 2 inches. Perhaps expectations here are too high these days. Its great to see others
  6. As a season ticket holder I'm sat here watching the Rochdale v MK Don's match online. Snow coming down for nearly 30 mins of the 1st half has nearly wiped out the white lines. Shower coming out of Bradford might scupper the whole match ❄❄⚽️
  7. On our 4th of 5th shower of the day but the problem remains the intensity. At no point does the light ever darken. In fact it's snowing moderately at the moment with the sun bright in the sky. It's never going to be particularly heavy in that case.
  8. Got lucky this morning with the showers. Now the wind has dropped the snowflakes are much bigger than yesterday's bits of fluff.
  9. Agreed 👍. Maybe one an hour into Rochdale/Oldham or so if they continue to follow this route.
  10. Unfortunately that Rochdale shower seemed to implode above us. Nice bit of snow still.
  11. Beautiful start to the day. Little bit of fresh cover this morning. Bitterly cold.
  12. Eh, who'd of thought it. A bit of decent intensity to a shower and everything is white.
  13. Maybe something of interest heading out of S Norway in the North sea. Looks to be heading towards the east coast. Could pop up on radar later.
  14. Odd. Moderate sometimes heavy snow for the last 20 mins and air temp at -0.9c. Really struggling though to settle on any surfaces other than grass and the snow magnets that are the wheelie bin lids. Even the cars don't want to know. Going take something heavy to get anything substantial on the ground.
  15. Interesting how that shower over Leeds has blown up in intensity. Gives hope for this afternoon.
