Dunstable got a good snow cover but melted in the afternoon. Hills around the area did ok. I drove to the highest point in the Chiltrens to have my snow fix. Some photos from Wendover Wood this mornin

Nice bit of snow here this morning, so that means it won’t go down as one of the worst winters I can remember but only by the skin of its teeth . Photos below ?

Shower cloud lit up nicely by the low sun earlier this evening north of Heathrow where I work.

Met Office have released rainfall charts for the winter. February is just crazy ? More rain to come, too.

Crazy indeed!...I recorded my wettest February (just short of 70mm), so much for the QBO trending into an easterly phase!

It’s the wettest February on record. 
 

Ground is saturated and local farmer is praying for a dry summer speaking with him today. Fingers crossed for a 2020 hot and dry summer.

Had 2 moderate showers this morning. Was outside with hubs sorting stuff and it didn't feel like i need a coat, there was some spring in that sun.

Gone cloudy now.

Almost thunderstorm season.?

Funny how nature responds to the weather.In what has been a mild winter it is worth mentioning that in this part of NW Kent temperatures have pretty much been about 7-9 degrees for about 80% of the time with only about 6 or 7 days hitting double figures in the last 3 months and half a dozen days being about 5 or 6 degrees.On the whole the daffodils have been a good couple weeks ahead, magnolia are starting to flower yet Camelias seem to be behind by a week or so.What has been missing is sunshine-is it me or has it been such a dull start to the year?remember by this time last year we had already had a mini heatwave in mid-late Feb where we hit 18 degrees and lovely warm sunshine.I really do crave for Spring now(I was lucky enough to see snow fall for 40 mins last Thursday although it didn’t settle) but I have a horrible feeling this horrible pattern of weather we seem to have been stuck in for the last 5 months has a bit further to go before we can get the bbq’s out!!

That system quite a bit further north than forecast. Another soggy morning. 6c. March certainly carrying on where February left off. Wet spring ahead i reckon.

It's not the first time the forecast for "southern counties" is a bit off to put it kindly. If you listened to BBC forecasters bleating how this would be a much better week last Sunday you'd be forgiven for wondering why this is possibly going to turn out the wettest week of all down here just without the wind.

They ie MET etc just cant seem to get a handle on systems moving through the channel. Never have been able to. Very strange in this day and age. Just lmagine if the temps ans DPs were 6 degrees lower! ?

We were supposed to be on the periphery but its tracked about 20 miles further north so its lashing down here

sods law - on the periphery for rain & it goes North > predicted snow & it would have gone south.

5c & horrific out there

Wrong forecast, last night forecast had this rain skirting along the channel coasts...so we now have another dreadful day to look forward to. The last 6 months seem like an ongoing meteorological nightmare!

Agreed! 

Bar the odd day, it's been raining with a constant wind since October! Really depressing and **** , I can't remember it being like this for many years ?
