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

    Bingo - The worm has turned and we have sleet/wet snow now after the deluge of rain.  Still lots of precip. on the radar so might be a good spell to wave Storm Christoph on his way.

    @Chris.R Is this forecast to change back to rain after midnight?

    West of M6 yes although precip may have cleared by then depends on when the westerly wind kicks in.

    Heavy snow everywhere turning white - what a transition!!!  ❄️ 😄 

    What a lovely surprise this evening is turning out to be... So glad lots are seeing snow. 

    I've been away for a few days (From the charts etc) so didn't see this coming.  Noticed on the BBC some white speckles so thought I would check in...a few days ago nothing to, what could be, a few hours of snow! Heavy stuff too!!

    For me, I have never seen it turn from pure rain (as my lounge is in the attic and has velux windows so can see every drop! haha) to what is now, heavy snow sticking everywhere!

    Dare I say it but I think we are witnesses to quite a historic event here...

     

    Seems a bit early to call that. So far got just about (quite a wet) covering here with it having turned snowy around 7 to 7.30. Decent elevation (200m) 

     

    It would need to get a lot heavier or last well into tomorrow morning/afternoon to come close to historic (bearing in mind we had 4-5 inches of snow here only a few weeks back in that last cold snap)

    So, looking at the radar we have quite a few  hours of stuff falling...at this rate it could be quite a fall!

    I haven’t seen locally such a quick transition in many years usually it’s the other way round. Crewe also getting a pasting! 🥳🥳 ❄️ Should pick up 2-5cm overnight although will be perhaps a more slushy temporary covering the further west and low down you go.

      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.
