  1. Stunning all day long. The sun was relentless and I managed to burn too. Cracking Easter BBQ in the garden.
  2. Some stunning days this week, great for walking. Goes chilly once the sun goes in but i'll take it. The ground is also very dry now
  3. A distinctly chilly wind this morning that has been howling away all night. Very 'beast from the east' style, you certainly hear differences when the wind blows from the east compared to the west.
  4. Light snow falling for the past hour in Quinton.
  5. Rain with sleet mixed in here in Solihull. I can't believe they actually issued a Yellow Warning for southern Midlands, pointless
  6. Another stunning day. Went walking in the Peak District and barely a cloud in the sky. Wore a t-shirt most of the way round, even out of the sun it was still humid feeling. This time last year there was brutally cold wind chills up there!
  7. Hoping for a bit more sun as it felt warm in it Sunday but I will take mild temps if we cannot get snow. 3-6c and wet no thanks!
  8. Stunning day out there. Been up near Flash and the roads are nice and clear and sun is shining all around. Kids are sledging on the hills and I found some drifts that reached my waist! Lower down we still have snow on the ground, impressive since Tuesday. No drip drip just the sun melting it in exposed areas.
  9. Lovely sunset tonight and still frozen on most ground that hasn't seen the sun. Disappointed with no more snow but been fascinated watching that system down south just pivot and move in weird ways. And yes Midlands has missed out considering most areas of the country had some good dumpings most of which were surprise falls.
  10. Last night: Anyway of more interest tonight is the temps. It was already -3 at 7pm, but with no wind it feels quite nice for a walk. I went up Brown Edge and the snow was several inches deep and powdery in nature and had a nice walk in the dark (since the snow makes everywhere brighter) Tonight: Wow the wind is freezing tonight! Making it feel so raw. Apparently snow is blowing around blocking roads in the Peak District too.
  11. It will be a nowcast situation for sure. Anyway of more interest tonight is the temps. It was already -3 at 7pm, but with no wind it feels quite nice for a walk. I went up Brown Edge and the snow was several inches deep and powdery in nature and had a nice walk in the dark (since the snow makes everywhere brighter)
  12. This was Norton earlier...much more snow around here than downtown Burslem.
  13. Thought the front had gone through and it pepped up a final time giving a nice last coating to all surfaces. About 2-3cm on the ground
  14. Last bit of the snow coming through now and it has pepped up slightly.
  15. Snow line about an hour ago was halfway between J14 and J15 of the M6 but not settling. Hanley and Burslem have a bit of slushy stuff but it's the elevation into Smallthorne and Norton which means we have lying snow but is is very wet. Traffics screwed on the main roads but that's fine, I took some side roads with big hills and everyone was clearing avoiding them and didn't skid once. Pansies!
