  2. Cracking day, 29C here in Nantwich. Certainly a humid feel to the air though which will make it uncomfortable for some.
  3. Very gusty this afternoon especially with an exposed west facing garden. Bright though to compensate, the heavy rain of earlier has eased off.
  4. Couple of good useable days this weekend, not the wash out we feared. Once again the NW summer continues in good stead.
  5. Certainly feels continental out there tonight, lovely t-shirt night.
  6. Amazing yes however if you think about it, the more worrying part would be regularly breaking it every year or so. Incredible spell for NI though!
  7. You can see how serious the rain is on the M42 which has several lanes blocked due to flooding. Hockley Heath seems to be the main bullseye. My brother in Shirley reports flash flooding and a mammoth storm.
  8. Clouded over here in Crewe with thick cloud which seemingly came from no where. Shame just as the BBQ was fired up.
  9. Very lucky to dodge any showers all day in Nantwich whilst out walking. It was also the first warm day in ages where a t shirt was sufficient. Threatened to rain this evening but so far dry
  10. Quite the shower passing over in Crewe, heavy rain and hail and it's been torrential for a good 20 minutes.
  11. I think we've had falling snow each month since at least November last year, which is mightly impressive.
  12. A heavy graupel shower passing through Quinton right now.
  13. A real big shelf cloud across Crewe, so dark and threatening. Some hail but nothing spectacular, expected a few flashes.
  14. Another frost this morning (lost track of how many in a row that is now!). The perk of these is the beautiful clear skys we've been having even if it only feels warm in the sun. Better than rain surely?
  15. We've had it all today, snow this morning which settled, then bright sun and it felt actually nicely warm in it and then tonight graupel and hail showers some of which have been heavy.
  16. Snow here and settling on the grass! Can't remember settling snow in April before!
  17. Shower activity has ramped up today. No coverings here but of course nice to see snow this late in the season.
  18. Shorts and t-shirt yesterday to wearing a hoody, thick coat, hat and scarf today. I was frozen and I think more than I should have been but probably due to the severe contrast to yesterdays weather. I've known some notable cold fronts but I think the drop we experienced combined with the cold wind is quite something.
  19. It feels warm, but not quite as warm as I'd expect. I think the humidity is fairly low compared to last weekend when the sun came out and it felt sticky. But a day to enjoy and crack open the BBQ.
  20. Just typical winter fare. I'm surprised it wasn't named but we don't have an amber. And impact wise most people aren't travelling around (though schools will in the morning). Anyway I'm enjoying listening to the roar outside and it's actually not raining here.
  21. I also tend to look away when there are no extremes of weather, so I'll go back in my box now. It feels raw today though with the wind and rain even if its above 0c for the first time in a while. Most patches of snow and ice have now thawed except the thickest spots.
  22. Feels more bitter today with a lack of sun. Wind is stronger too and air temp still -1c.
  23. Lovely day today walking in the country. Nice firm fields instead of the mudbath they had become, even those adjacent to the rivers that had recently flooded. Wind was raw when stopped but not too bad when walking. Sun was out most of the day and it was perfect walking weather. Down to -4c already, which is colder than Wednesday.
  24. A stunning day despite the lack of showers really, beautiful clear skies and cold and the ground was nice and hard still. Tonight, how low can we go!
  25. A much crisper feel outside tonight with the ground going hard for the first time so far during this cold spell. It does feel much more raw although the wind speeds dropped, what wind does blow about was bitter combined with the air feeling colder. A few flurries of snow in the air but looks like todays streamer has been too far north. Would be nice for another covering for tomorrow if possible!
