Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    WOW!

    Just been out to the garden with the dog. I wasn't really expecting a massive increase on the pictures I took at 10pm last night. There is easily 5-8cm just at the backdoor making it difficult to open. The steps up to the backyard have pretty much vanished. Anywhere we walked last night has vanished. 

    It's still not deep as 2010, when I had to wear recycling bags on my legs because  the snow was quite literally up to my knees.

    I'll try and get photos and measurements in an hour or so.

    Quick question, Max today was 0C (now -0.7C) - do I get an ice day or does it need to be a minus figure?

    Wasn't even looking at the radar ! (Ha I'm so relaxed now I have decent snaw). Looks like this one and the one behind it are moving east to west (again).

    Pretty heavy but short. Sure you'd never get bored watching snow falling in these conditions anyway 😜

    Interesting update from the Met, the mild spell turning into a interlude perhaps?

    EDIT - Hmm, the current UTC time is 15:14 so we now have documented evidence of time travel, or just someone overly eager to post the update!

    Looks like one more shower following that one then I think the beast will be signing off for now 🤣

    Of course it helps if your monitoring equipment goes to several decimal places.

    So @asjmcguire if you can find it in the data that it was actually -0.01C (or even -0.04C!) then dancer!

    Nope it would need to be -0.1, sorry lad!

    Technically I think that it should be minus but as I had the same yesterday go for it.

    Here the showers have died away since lunchtime though there is still cloud to the East and the temp has crept up to +0.5C. Radar shows some light activity nearby.
    Still a bit short of our depths at end Nov to early December 2010 when we had 5 to 6 days of convection beginning with the night and day of thundersnow and far more disruption but definitely the second best event here this century and probably some time before that by a mile.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      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.
