    Yep, l looking out over a wide area at 250m height, it's dry as far as the eye can see...weird

     

    Anaprop! Google it it’s when weather radars are affected by the climate and produce ‘ghost’ precipitation clouds by error

    I was wondering why the radar was showing pink here for the last hour yet it was dry outside.  Didn't think about evaporation 

    Yes, it's nothing to worry about. Cold air and moisture don't mix well: not only does it evaporate but it also causes frontal systems to weaken and eventually decay, as we'll see tomorrow. It's also why, thanks to climate change, a warmer future is likely to be a wetter one, especially in winter, but that's for another time!

    Looks like the heavier stuff that definitely isn't a radar echo is making quite a push now from South to North. Hopefully turns to snow out west quickly. Personally happy for it to hold out until 5 onwards over the south east!

    Perhaps the amber warning is for heavy doom and despondency.

    Could increase snow amounts for us, watch the radar to see if it begins to wrap and form. 

    I think I can see a slight wrapping over the far SW of England, it's not much, but it is there.

    For anyone concerned it's now too warm for snow in Wales, here's Cornwall at this very minute with police issuing "do not travel" advisories:

    It's even snowing in Padstow, on the Cornish coast.

    Oh dear.   This is not looking good.  The back edge of the system is approaching fast and the snow hasn't even started to settle!  Everything is wet and the snow is easing off (despite all my efforts to pretend otherwise!).   Unless this system starts to pivot in a serious way to bring the heavier stuff in my direction, it's all going to be over here by 5:00pm.   For the south east and borders there is plenty on the way, though...

    • 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.
