    A better day here today compared with yesterday, dry and chilly but without the gusty, biting wind we had yesterday. Looks like tomorrow will be milder before it turns cold again over the weekend.

    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.

    We got up to the dizzy heights of 5.3C here. Not sure what the average is for April, something like 15C? Had more cloud filtering in compared to yesterday so it felt chilly whilst sat on a bench in Oldham town centre. Not my home I might add 😁 although I feel for any poor homeless bugger out in the cold last night.

    Much milder evening than yesterday's, thanks to cloud cover. Tomorrow looking a damp drab affair, temps probably not quite making double digits, so not very enthused by it. By Friday back to the arctic cold.

    It was nice to see a local football match being played this evening on the local recreational ground - finally some life about!

    This will likely be the coldest April for more than 20 years.

    Think u mean 1989 with a CET of 6.6. It is possible to get a figure similar to that this month. Just depends if we get a warm up in the second half

    GFS and ECM say yes however the forecast on Breakfast shows a front from the SE spreading NW but as usual the northern extent uncertain before the front heads back SE giving some wintryness in southern counties certainly going to be another cold weekend not quite as cold as beginning of the week so any snow perhaps reserved for higher ground.

    Maybe something a touch milder later next week? I'm an ardent coldie but some warmth wouldn't go a miss now to warm the house up naturally. Don't really want to keep putting the heating on for much longer.

    Really wish we would get some proper rain now. Arsonists are out setting hill fires.

    Yes 2018 was terrible for them. Hope we don't get a very dry summer like that. Alternating warm and wet periods are ideal growing conditions, so a good dose of everything needed. I don't think most in here want a complete washout either especially if we still can't travel abroad.

    Yes that would be perfect. Just enough rain and warm to help everything green up quickly.

    In little ol' Crewe, wow! Heavy shower at lunchtime but otherwise dry and reasonably mild if not sunny since about 10am. I could see blue skies to the north and south (!) but never really made it here to Crewe.

    Clear skies, arctic polar air, light winds, a recipe for a cold night! Indeed we are forecast to drop to -5 degrees, a notable low for April. Indeed many a winter we've struggled to hit such lows.

    Temp dropping like a stone right now, currently 5 degrees, but expect to see a couple of degrees shaved off that in the next hour, and below freezing by about 11pm.. tomorrow looking a cold one again.

    • 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.
