    All of my snow that has been in the sun over the last couple of days has now melted but very little has changed in the shade.

    just shows how cold the air temperatures are at the moment, especially close to the ground.

    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 different feeling day, overcast in the main after early brightness, patchy rain at times this afternoon, but so far we've missed the heavier bursts.

    Still chilly, not very spring like. Sun should be back tomorrow and more frost..

    Shed horror story this morning. Got mower out and did front and back lawn. Decided I needed to look for a spare belt for washing machine only to find my fishing nets, net bag, two reel bags and my rod bag had been destroyed by a rat.  After many hours clearing the shed, I discovered the rat(s) had eaten through the wooden lats at the back and reduced 2x2 timber supports to half " x half ".

    Big repair job to do as I aint got £350 to pay the excess and claim on the insurance.

    Might have some frontal rain later Sunday into Monday as we pull in a milder SW flow.. long way off, and frontal activity might be further north and west leaving just dull damp drizzly conditions. It is turning into a dry April, but nothing unusual, April can be bone dry.

    Not a terrible outlook it has to be said with not much rain. But I guess "could be warmer" is the one thing that's missing. Although regardless of the temperature I'm noticing the sun starting to warm part of the house up now because of the strengthening UV, so it saves a bit on the heating bill. Parts of the house facing south west now warm up in the afternoons when the sun is out.

    A fine day, but rather more cloud than expected, sunny/bright spells, light winds, max up to 11 degrees, but still not feeling particularly spring like. Rest of the week brings the same, very decent, but sensing people are becoming impatient for something much warmer, alas it's still April.

    Spring growth has been stunted past 2 weeks or so.. magnolia looks killed by the frost, and most trees still in bud only.. last year was an exceptional early spring, this year feels more normal. Bluebells in May rather than April.

    Temperature dropped like a rock this evening once the sun went down, -1.3'c p/h is the current fall rate in Buxton. Chilly but clear, allowing some good views of the 2-day old Moon + Earthshine as it was setting.

    Lovely last night, the crescent moon was visible the previous night as well in the fading twilight

    Yes, cold at 7am with ice on the windscreens, but another beautiful day in prospect and warming up quickly with the sun and lack of cold wind.

    Wall to wall sunshine hardly a cloud in the sky... admittedly it could do with being a few degrees warmer, but I'll take this any day of the week, especially when it falls on my day off.  Looks predominantly dry for the foreseeable.

    Spring seems to give us a lot of sun. No doubt in the heart of summer we'll be waking up to black overcast skies and 17C max's.

    -2.7'c this morning and a high of 12.2'c this afternoon showing the diurnal temperature range in full effect, thankfully the skies haven't completely clouded-over today which meant getting a good view of AF1 TITAN25 (73-1677) over Stoke-on-Trent as it was heading back stateside.

    Looking at the Met Office data (goes back to 1960) , the frostiest April was 1968 for the region.

    If it hasn't surpassed it, this April must be up there amongst the frostiest.

    And if the GFS is on the money the risk of frost is there at the month's end. Been a notably cold month by April standards. Hopefully May will be warmer, we need it now as we take the lockdown shackles off us. It'll give everyone a boost and not have to sit outside with an extra layer.

    Night after night of air frost, and it goes on, another starry clear sky tonight and light winds, another air frost on the cards. Today has been lovely ideal conditions for doing anything outdoors. Clear skies in the main, wall to wall sunshine and light winds, but still a bit too chilly for my liking, temps just nudging up to 11 degrees. Still waiting to break into the barrier from winter to summer state.. can happen and often does in April, but May is the month that does it usually. This time last year we were seeing regular highs in the high teens, sometimes low 20's.. 

    This looks like being a notably cold April, despite the predominant dry sunny outlook, at no stage in the forseeable do we draw in any warm uppers, and its slightly just a bit too early for homegrown heating from high pressure overhead given the orientation and lower upper air temps, give it a month and we'd be seeing temps climb much higher in the afternoon under such synoptics.

    Nothing special with the ensembles for the rest of the month. Doesn't look like there's any warmth on the way. So the CET likely to finish a bit below average I think.

    No great shakes temp wise

    Another lovely April day, dry and sunny but still a nagging chill in the air.. waiting for the first burst of warmth of the year, and nothing on the horizon.
