    Its not out of the realms of possibility that we will swing to very dry. Hopefully warm with it, so I can treat the rust on my car.

    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.

    A very mild couple of days we've had here. We managed to miss the bulk of the rain. A much nicer start to the day today, mostly sunny, but slightly cooler. Looks like overnight frosts returning over the next few days.

    A decent start to the day although its not a drying washing on the line day yet. Very damp and hundreds of raindrops on said washing line.

    Utter squelch out there and the brooks are roaring noisily.  "Only" 9.3 mm rain in the gauge for previous 24hrs.  Expected more from yesterday's misery.   The last 2 days wet "episode" gave us 40.8mm. 

    Total for Feb so far is 132.5 mm.  (50yr average for Feb is 107.3 mm)

    Expecting this.  We've two of our family with mid March birthdays.  Routinely have wintry cold and snow then, if only briefly.  (not last year though)

    Wow. Spring is well and truly in the air and man, is it welcome. More and more restrictions will ease as the weather gets warmer. 
     

    The sun has some real strength in it now. Overlooking the bare trees, you’d be forgiven for assuming it was summer today if you’d looked from behind the glass. 
     

    still a bit chilly out, we hit a max of around 10.5C. The other day was the best, it was about 14C with sunshine and that wet my appetite for what I’m hoping is about to be a long, hot and dry spring and summer period. 
     

    tomorrow should feel even nicer with slacker winds and a max of around 13C. 
     

    really hoping winter has no sting in its tail this year, I really just want to move forward now and look forward to my holidays and plenty of long, sunny days.

    It was far chillier, and a stronger wind than I expected when out on the bicycle.......looks to be better tomorrow, with less wind. Otherwise, nice & bright...

    Mmm late cold spellscant be ruled out I'm afraid. March and more so April are so fickle and northerly and easterly airstreams far more likely in Spring than rest of the year I'm afraid!

    What a gorgeous Spring day today was!  ☀️ It’s amazing at how a bit of sunshine can lift the mood so much this time of year and after a long winter in so many ways 😷 🥶 ❄️

    True! But after this letdown of a winter, I'm ready to just move past it and hit the beach!

    Woke up to a decent frost first thing this morning, Some signs of it turning colder by day from next weekend as well, some cross model support with this. Even though it'll be Spring Winter probably isn't done with us yet. Often the case in March anyway, rarely is it a warm month. There's a definite "lag effect" with our seasons. March might be meteorological Spring but it's rarely properly Spring like until April as that's when the leaves come on most trees too. The same with June, even though the days are long and the sun is at it's strongest it's rarely the warmest summer month. Usually it's mid July to mid August which is the warmest time of year despite the sun starting to weaken a bit. And December despite having the weakest sun is not the coldest Winter month, it's mid January to mid February which is often the coldest time of year. Again that lag effect showing it's hand.

    Yes strong lag effects start of each new meteorological seasonmonth, first half of each usually a hang over from previous season weather wise at least, but there is a change in feeling, psychologically you feel the new season upon you, even if the weather doesn't.  March is still a wintry month in the northern countryside.

    Our best chance will come from Greenland blocking around early March IMO. March 2006 NW'ly gave us a few cm.

    Getting there

    A bit of frost on the cars and rooftops this morning but wall to wall cloud though rather than clear skies.

    At least it’s dry though and it looks like that’s the pattern for the weekend and much of next week so finally some usable weather for the build up of outside jobs.

    That list of jobs and unlisted ones in all areas, that's why I've not posted much 

    Anyway, another frosty morning 🌄 but looks decent.

    Still cloud and murk up here but nothing unusual about that, especially at this time of year.
