    Don't no where it's coming from? The precip of north west wales seems to far north to pivot back and not much expanding down south!

    A cold clear day, With everything still frozen. A few shots while out walking earlier. Temp 0.4c Dp -1.9c WC 0.2c

    METO should have followed the map 

    Great Longstone at 11.00am this morning pretty difficult journey, what with fog and blowing snow very tricky approx. 20 to 25cms   also plenty of vids from Beeley Moor most are at 250m to 350mtrs

    Stop worrying if it's going to fizzle out or turn into rain or invite itself in for tea without asking.

     

    It's going to do whatever it's going to do...and it's snowing now, so enjoy.

     

    And yes

     

    I will be the first on here complaining that it's turned to rain but like the weather, I'm also going to do whatever I'm going to do so you'll have to deal with that too! :p

    That's not what I said, please feel free to complain...it defines us as a nation! It's worrying I advised against.

     

    Just don't worry now...save your energy for the complaining later...or save it for playing in the snow, whatever is more appropriate.

     

    Not a chance I can call what it going to happen tonight. Not even going to try. Expect everything!

    Are the new LED lamps any better than the old awful Orange ones for snow watching? No lampposts here so rely on a big 500w floodlight in the back garden. No Snow yet here..

     

    Temp 0.8c

    Dp -3.1c

    Yes i have one of them to for closer inspection, Fantastic torches and the batteries last for hours. I usually take the dog out when there's a good covering so hopefully it will get some use later.

    looking at the radar bulk of the precipitation looks to be moving quite quicky north north west now. if it is going to pivet i would hope it starts soon, else it looks more northern england scotland will get the bulk.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
