    Sorry guys. My mums still in a really bad way. I just wanted to post to quickly say tonight in my opinin is being underestimated. The trend today has been to keep the front as all snow

    Last one from me, great day...just stopped now so 11 hours of snow 👍👏👏 Hope those that missed out get some soon 🤞👍  

    Around 50cm has fallen across the highest parts of the North York Moors yesterday. Went for a walk this morning at Newgate Bank. Around 30cm of fresh powdery snow underfoot and quite difficult to

    My view this morning. This was a stunning winter for North Yorkshire. To be more specific it was a proper winter.

    Similar scenes here. I measured 1cm last night , most was still here this morning although had melted from the paths and road.  Starting to thaw now where the sun is getting it.

    Hills to the SW Haworth/Burnley area look very white .

    This is all starting to sound surreal, BL! Here I am, sunshine streaming through the windows and looking-forward to augmenting my burgeoning suntan, and you guys are talking about heavy snow! What a weird spring, we are having!😁

    🙂  Yes, very changeable early April here of late,    sleet, hail, snow, gales, warm sunshine, overnight frosts  .. 
    You'll need a good vest on to sit out for a pint tomorrow I reckon.

    BL  🙂

    Woke up to a dusting of snow here this morning as snow showers moved in off the North Sea.

    Yesterday was absolutely crackers with snow settling on the beach at Robin Hoods Bay and 2 of my weather stations falling to -8.2c overnight.

    Keld fell to -7c this morning and thick snow lay across parts of North Yorkshire from stationary showers in the west last yesterday evening and snow showers this morning in the east.

    I missed out on any of the fun yesterday but had to have a ride out this morning to the nearby North York Moors.

    A few of my highest weather stations have a mean temperature of just 1c so far this April with hard frosts looking to continue over the coming nights.

    As an extreme weather enthusiast I've found it quite hard to contain myself over the last week or so. 😄

    This is one of the best April snowfalls ever. It's mad, amazing what's happening right now.

    Just relocated from Exeter to Lincoln on Friday, hoping to get more of "my" type of weather over here, and today certainly hasn't disappointed - in the sunny intervals and out of the wind it's felt quite pleasant, but in between there's been showers of hail, sleet and snow, never quite cold enough for the snow to settle but there was lying hail at around noon today.  Temperatures of around 8C when the sun got out, falling to 3-4C in showers.  Some impressive TCu and Cb cells about with snow and/or hail shafts.  Indeed, I've seen more snow falling today in Lincoln than I did in Exeter during the entire winter of 2020/21!

    Yes I did!  I lived there with my parents for a couple of years when I had finished my academic studies and was job hunting, then I moved to Exeter.  I've also lived in South Tyneside (Cleadon and South Shields), Lancaster, Leeds and Norwich, so have been around a fair bit.

    We had about 4 inches at 250m last night near Ripponden, West Yorkshire....We did a 4 trig run over about 25km on the moors where there was about 7-8 inches of laying powdery snow.

    Really beautiful, it came down at about 9pm last night onto dry ground. Really beautiful, nearly all melted by 4pm and then a heavy hail/snow shower again giving another light partial covering.

    Lucky, but not really needed in April 😄

    Got down to -3.4c here last night. Pretty impressive for suburbia in mid April.

    It's my new April min record anyway!

    There was another shower in Lincoln at 8pm last evening, started off sleety and then turned to snow with big flakes coming down.  Most of it didn't settle, but there was a bit of lying snow on some surfaces alongside the frost earlier this morning.  It's been clear and sunny so far.

    More Snow on the roof of my car than on the moors this morning which surprised me. I guess the slight dusting last night never reached there. So thats five days with snow falling this April.

    A dry night here .. we were hoping for some rain as things are getting very dry indeed.
    Hopefully there will be some showers today, the skies are looking grey.
    Otherwise we will have to do a lot of watering ... garden and allotment.
    * Please think of offering some ground water, safely placed, for the wildlife, birds, hedgehogs etc.

    Enough rain to damp the ground but not put anything in my water butt

    More showers to come by the looks though so I might be spared watering from the tap!

    Well that shower over Bradford (& slowly lumbering our way?) has been giving red & pinks on the MetO rainfall radar since 5:30 pm (ish) and so we might get full water butt out of it by the end of this bunch of showers (once they get here!)

    That was a nice refreshing downpour yesterday eve. In Huddersfield / Kirklees it probably lasted a couple of hours and was quite heavy, but nicely cooled down the air

    Just 2.4mm of rain here this month so far and 4.6mm since 20th March. These dry spring periods seem to becoming more common in recent years.
