    Agreed...not often you see tree's in that glorified presentation in this country...certainly not the previous mild winters we've had.  Whilst IMBY I haven't had much in the way of snowfall the frost, ice and fog has made a welcome come back this winter so far.

    Tonight could be a 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it affair' if you're awake into the early hours... because with a forecast max of 8-9c tomorrow afternoon...any snow won't stick around for long.

    Promising signs for later next week.

     

     

    No signs of any snow here; but it's been frozen all day and hasn't gotten over 0ºC today

     

    I'm just in from training in the garage and outside (any overhead pressing needs to be outside as the garage is too low); and it's bitter out there 🤣

     

    Last time I saw weather like your photos was Dec 2010; everywhere around here was so heavy with snow and ice, it was amazing to see

    Hello Guys & Girls, First of all I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you for all the messages of support and the PM's you sent me, you are an ok bunch aren't you! So, thank you.

    Hi Guys & Girls,  A short message from me while I still have the energy, my Mrs & I are both in our early 40's with asthma, we have made every effort to protect ourselves from from this e

    Shades of Feb 1996' for the NW with the current output - elevation, uppers and frontal / streamer alignment appear in the favour of many eastern areas (e.g. E Cumbria pummelled), but sizeable amounts

    Air frost has just begun again. Considering that the minimum for tonight was supposed to be around 2.3°C that’s quite a comical difference.

    Amber warning for the South (looks short lived) amazingly avoiding the north west. I am desperate for even a cm or 2.

    May see a slight bit of sleet early hours, but then just the usual rain.. image.thumb.png.fbaaaebaca1838510346b15df5cd3de1.png 

    Could see a bit of light snow for a time hopefully on Sunday ... image.thumb.png.e96f8b24f43aac662260c5ed91642611.png

    Just been out in the car and it’s showing -2oC already everything frozen solid. If it rains on this cold ground it will be lethal

    I just had to drive 10 minutes over the moors to see the snow. Gorgeous, crisp and sparkling with about 3 inches of powdery snow. Makes you really jealous.

    Massive band of rain coming in from the West and we are still going to miss out on a dumping. Unreal !

    Would have been a short lived event in any case

    Had about 3 hours of snow; but none stuck at all as it's so wet

     

    Where are you in Preston?

    Not excited about an hour of potential slush tonight. Won't be there in the morning anyway as mild air barges in from the west.

    Know it well pal; used to train at Reps there (they're now famous on Facebook and Blog Preston for staying open and getting fined because of that) 🤣

     

    My Nan lived in Grimsargh too

     

    I'm this side of the Ribble in Walton le Dale; can be hit n miss for us. But can be snowing 5mins up the road at Hoghton Tower etc

    And...the Mod roller-coaster seems to be on a plateau to a slight descent tonight. The mothership has realised that the travel corridor will be closed before it arrives and it hasn't got a hope in hell of getting a COVID test  72hours befor or for that matter +336h either.

    Edit, this may not apply to N of Birmingham though.

    Another cold day,  didn't manage an ice day, but not far off. Yesterday's wet slushy snow quickly hardened into ice last night. Temperatures overnight fell markedly under clear skies and light winds, freezing fog this morning which lingered in many parts producing a misty low cloud with some brightness but the weak sun couldn't punctuate it. If we were into February then it would have the strength, alas we are still in the dark third of the month (Nov-Feb). 

    Beautiful scenes, snow and ice. Snow lay on branches of trees and ice encased those that had no snow. Icicles in many places.

    Checking radar we have some pink encroaching into the West Lakes, might have a short dose of snow within the next hour or two, bit earlier than expected, before turning rapidly to sleet, then rain. Will keep any eye and report back. Pleased in a way it is happening now, rather than the morning, nothing worse than waking up to snow falling but then seeing it turn to sleet and rain..

    Front moving in quite fast, radar shows green and pink overhead here, but nothing falling from the sky. I suspect once we have some heavier precipitation the warmer uppers will feed down quickly to low surface, so may have a very brief spell of wet snowflakes.

    Next few days not very inspiring, pity all of yesterday's snow will be pushed aside, could have done with high pressure holding firm for the weekend to enable a lovely one for winter walks.

    Next weekend may deliver the goods, and we might finally have a decent cover on the ground.

    I think this band ahead of the main front should be mostly snow as cold air is still in place above us. Don’t see why not.

    DPs are below 0. Maybe ice pellets.

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      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.
