    Turned very dark here followed by a monsoon downpour, more like April than February! 

    It’s rattling through Sandbach now. Very April showers like day today. Imagining if it had been snow 😔 😄

    I had to get out before the sun melted it all. 

    Some brilliant walking conditions this morning apart from the sheer depth of snow, almost a foot fell here last night and not a Met O warning in site. made for some good photographs though, altho

    Heaviest single fall of snow for several years here and the heaviest in April since 1981.

    Just walked home from a dental check-up in an absolute downpour, every step I took I wished it was snow.

    Standard heavyish rain, nothing to get excited about.

    One thing I always enjoy, whether it’s during a summer dry spell like we’ve had a few of recently or during a cold frosty period like last week, is the novelty of dryness. I can’t speak for everywhere in the North West but probably 80% of the time everywhere in Cumbria is at best damp, if not soggy, and venturing off a made surface involves mud. I enjoyed the ground being rock hard last week and not needing wellies or walking boots to step off the concrete. If you add in the snowy hills and the blue skies then you can see why I prefer last weeks weather, regardless of the cutting easterly wind, to this claustrophobic, stuffy, soggy dankness that we are back in now. I’ll never understand people who say they prefer it when it’s like this. If it was 10c and sunny then fair enough but mild in this country generally means grey and wet. Plus even though it was cold last week it was England cold, so not really that cold. You’re quite a delicate being if you can’t cope with it. 

    For Cumbria a SW airstream brings low cloud and dankness especially in southern and central parts all year round and uniform temps. It is miserable and uninspiring. I despair when one sets in as this week, barely a chink of sunshine likely. I hibernate from the forum all last February on account of a month of conditions as we are seeing this week, just wetter. Thankfully we've been spared such conditions majority of the winter, we had alot of it in November.

    I know vehicle theft is on the increase around these parts. Has somebody taken your tractor?

    Police might want to look in the Highlands for the thief, going by the amount of snow.

    I agree, last winter seemed endless of non descript grey mild, damp days.  I think this thread has been pretty lively since xmas.  Fair enough, expectations have been higher than anyones accumulated snow depth, but the posts, photos and knowledgeable in-put from members has kept me entertained for the passed few weeks.  If we are not going to get a last cold, snowy hurrah then hopefully the warm up will bring with it lots of convective activity.

    This year of all years, I think we need to hope for mild, even warm, sunny days to lift the spirits. More of last April and May would do very nicely thank you. I have tried to 'like' as many of the snow/ice photos on this thread as I can, but I would like even more some more mornings like today - sunny, blue skies and quite mild, with any rain confined to the overnight periods.

    Personally I’m hoping for a wet spring for once so that this fire season isn’t as bad. If it’s dry and warm with lockdown making the outdoors even busier it’s gonna be a busy season!

    Whilst my personal preference is for cold weather at this time of year, I am in wholehearted agreement with you in wishing rain be restricted to overnight periods. This morning was good for getting out and about. Unfortunately, a complete contrast likely tomorrow morning. Life would be boring if everyone liked the same things and variety in opinions is what keeps forums like this ticking over.

    Sounds good! 👌😄 ❄️ Looking at what’s been happening and the brutal cold in the USA and across Europe the past few weeks the UK has definitely pulled the short straw or dodged a bullet when it’s come to cold & snow depending on your opinion we were so close to an historic spell like January 1987/ February 1991. Cold early February’s in recent years have often given us a side swipe of cold and have gone out with a whimper though - Feb 2009 and Feb 2012 for example. It’ll be nice to get one last wintry blast in March but past mid- late March thoughts for me at least definitely turn to spring  and come April the first spring day reaching 20c.

    The Beeb had this down as the coldest day of the week, and so it has proved here in South Cheshire, with a blustery wind making it feel colder than it probably was. Pouring rain for a short while at 7.30am (a classic front moving through perhaps?) clearing to blue skies this morning, and cloud and a few spots of rain in the air this afternoon.

    A record 72% of the lower USA is currently snow-covered. (Records are only 18 years old).
