    Cloudy chilly.... after having neighbour jet wash all day Thursday spent 8 hours gardening yesterday... fruit trees pruned and bases mulched and ash composted... pulled curtains back yesterday to have sparrow hawk devouring a pigeon in a cloud of feathers... today pull back curtain to have a couple of pheasant mooching about and woodpeckers on tree in back garden

    Clouds starting to thin and the sun break through now.

    Morning walk done so time for a bit of breakfast and then get some outside jobs.

    Stoat is running around in its white winter coat despite warm sunshine.  Still snow and ice potential?

    Wow, that was a game. Made us work for those points.

    This day reminds me of the weather on the final day in 2012.

    Well that’s an afternoons power washing done so tomorrow is tidying up the conifers before the birds start nesting.

    not a bad afternoon weather wise, pleasant enough in the sunshine although a bit chilly in the shade but spring is definitely in the air.

    Better weekend than initially forecast, was originally forecast on Friday to cloud over Saturday from that decaying front with a rather cloudy Sunday but instead was pretty sunny yesterday and another sunny day coming up by the looks of it.. 

    As a consequence, frosts have been sharper than forecast, currently -4.2C

    Everything is white with frost again this morning but unlike yesterday, it’s a clear bright start so it shouldn’t  take long for the sun to get to work.

    A colder night than expected last night with a minimum temperature of -0.7°C, the first air frost since the cold spell earlier in the month. Looks like we will get another one tonight.

    Having some rather large diurnal ranges at the moment as is common at this time of year. Maximum was 15.0°C yesterday and 13.6°C the previous day. Noticing that it warms up much more rapidly here than in Crosby, one of the advantages of Moving inland. Might actually get April showers this year.

    Lovely morning, early frost and sunny spells. Mist over the lake.

    Quite cold at moment, just 4 degrees, indicative of the fact we are just about still in Feb and the sun doesnt quite have the punch in it still.

    Outlook very reminiscent of 2016.

    Beginning to feel the sun, but it is very deceptive, current air temp only 5.8 degrees, wouldn't think so.

    I've been thinking how I rate this Winter last few days. I rate this Winter 6/10 because its definately better than last year's, I had couple of weeks of cold weather and snow mostly light. Only seen 2-3 days of heavy snow lasted a few minutes here overall giving a slight covering. It could've been worse though.

    Lawnmowers buzzing around this afternoon, Spring must be here! 😁 

    Not quite lawnmower season up here yet but it’s certainly been a hedge trimmer and power washer day.

    Haha. We own the fields surrounding our house but our horses eat the grass so they keep it down to a cropped length but in our actual back garden part the grass hasn't grown much if at all since I last cut it in late October. I don't normally cut it until late March as that's when the ground dries up better with the strengthening sun plus the grass has often grown a bit by then. But it really depends how cold March is as well. I had to wait until the 2nd week of April to do the first cut after the cold March's of 2013 and 2018 as the frequent frost and snow put the growth season back a few weeks.

    Similar here as well.

    It’s usually right at the end of March or into April before my lawnmower gets its first outing of the year although the grass is often thickly matted if not long by then and takes some cutting.

    It’s usually the hardest cut of the season.

    Surprisingly cold here tonight after a mild, almost springlike afternoon. It definitely feels as though the seasons are turning but you never know - we still have a month of winter to go! 🙂

    All due to clear skies, sharp drop in temp once sun goes down. Air frost this morning, today looking glorious, but another air frost tonight.

    A very dry week ahead, becoming cold at times under cloud, a reminder only early March. I'll take it over the rain, think back to last Tuesday and Wednesday which were abysmal, what a contrast!

    A sunny start but - right on cue - forecast cloud has just arrived and it sounds as though it may be sticking around for a while. Not sure what effect this will have on temperatures, particularly overnight (this morning was frosty again), but I would rather have the sun out any day.

    A lot of forecasts i've seen for this morning have been going for wall-to-wall sunshine, it was deceptively clear skies and looking like another glorious day like yesterday however the North Sea fog and murk has now rolled in with overcast sky and limited visibility. Only MWIS Peak District forecast this (fog banks up to 500m so clear skies if you're on Kinder or Bleaklow) and it's a good job I took a look as I was about to set off for the lower moor of Combs Moss earlier on.
