Currently having a shower here with what either looks like graupel or snowflakes mixed in!

Edit: temperature is apparently only 2*C here, lol.

Most of the showers missed this location for the second day running. Just a few brief, light showers of soft hail this afternoon with long dry periods between them.

Thick freezing fog here this morning, which isn't the commonest weather in April even in the Peak District. The fog is clearing now though and the sun is breaking through.

Light snow falling for the past hour in Quinton.

Truly dire morning here in Bewdley. Moderate rain, slightly sleety in the heavier bursts, and 1.8 °C. The most miserable weather here for a long time.

Increasingly heavy sleet here in Telford, but in the last ten minutes it's changed to distinct snow, large snowflakes floating about like feathers, although still very wet when they land against the window-glass and of course not settling. 

(I'm having A Day In Bed after various work-trips and whatnot, and it is utterly splendid, sitting up idly knitting with bread rising in the kitchen and soup ready for lunch, and sleet lashing down outside! Horrible for all of the rest of you, I know, but I'm enjoying looking out at it from in here! 🙂 )

Light rain just starting here, The small Low on the radar could give a few hours of rain if it pushes a little further East.

Sounds like a fun, relaxing, day!

To be honest, I think even sleet is far more exciting than just plain ol’ rain.

My favourite type of day.  Currently snowing proper in Glyn Ceiriog, snowing a lot up over Nantyr and Llanarmon.  Currently by fire drying out from snowy dog walk, just about to 🧶 knit and have a cup of tea.....

It pushed south! The low was over N England last night, started to move E and then went SW for some reason. Result 24 hours of non-stop rain and sleet as it drags everything right over us...

Yeah, I guess the whole thing did. Wasn't paying that much attention to be honest. Just felt like a little groan that's all. I really should have thought a bit more before I posted I suppose.

I suppose my gripe still stands in a way. Typical that everything gets dragged right over us when it's just rain. 

Anyway, the sun is due back soon so my negativity stops here. ( I actually quite like the weather we get in Spring)

Not yet but it's heading in our direction. Been a foggy day here with increasing rain during the late afternoon. Dry now, but it's gone very, very still, calm before the storm.

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.

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

The dry ground is resulting in some low grass minimum temp's lately. -6.4c recorded on the grass here last night, the lowest in April since 2003. The  air min' overnight was  -0.9c.

Well, that was a bit more like it! Lighter winds, lots of sunshine (though it's clouded over now) and a new 2019 high for me of 18.1 °C. Looking forward to the Easter period, though it's a shame things look like breaking down to some extent from Monday.
