    I’ve seen lightning to the SW from up here in NE Somerset. We have had a few sleety snowy showers over recent hours when the wind really whips up but nothing of note. Incidentally I am not a lover of

    I can imagine that it's not much fun for [email protected] . Are you in a built up area or on the edge of Camborne ? 

    Im in a built up area and I think fence panels will be splitting and cracking if not being blown down .

    What temp do we need Fromey for snow ? 

    Dew point needs to drop to 0c currently 2.9c temps at 3.0 so a little way to go but it’s dropped 1.3c in the last hour if it keeps going we should see some sleet soon Plus the wind has gone round to ENE which should drag some colder air in.

    dew point has just dropped dramatically to 2.2c!

    Unfortunately not Smartie, this is going to be a real kick in the teeth if we don't see snow.

    Heard nothing about the system coming in tonight which was supposed to produce the goods

    I do feel for you all further South as we have a winter wonderland of around 4 cm here, However, it is now turning to rain so I think the milder air must still be creeping north although I understand the cold air will push it back south later today, so good luck!

    If it does move South then we would be back in the game.

    Is there any chance it will?

    It's a complex LP area with one center over western Ireland and another centre just south of here and the whole system is tracking ESE so I would guesstimate that we've just about reached the northern limit now of the milder air.....I'd expect the rain/sleet/snow mix in northern parts of the region and the rain only event further south to turn increasingly to snow as the LP's ttrack across the region and drag in colder air from the north east

    Rain has turned back to snow now and wind has just changed from South to North-west so that gives me hope for those of you further south. The view is of Rodborough Common from our bedroom window.

    Will it bring the Bristol area into play?

    Proper snow in Wantage - did I just write that?  6cm already and it's settling on everything so I doubt there was much if any rain preceding it.

    And really really quiet outside.   Which is a surprise as I was expecting some wind (and, if I'm honest, no snow!) with this slider.

      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.
