    The mean minimum for this April  up to the 16th at Rostherne is a remarkable  -0.4C

    I can’t remember ever having as many frosty mornings in April as we have this year and that’s on the back of what already seems to have been a winter with more than it’s fair share of frost.

    anyway once it clears it looks like a couple of decent usable days coming up so an opportunity for some outside jobs and a bit of walking this 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.

    The coldest April I have experienced was in 1986 and yet there was only 1 day where the minimum went below 0C at Manchester Airport, that's almost remarkable in itself.

    There were 7 nights in April 1989 where it went below 0C at Manchester Airport, the notable thing here is that coldest nights were in the last week of that month

    Met Office forecast went for clouding over at 12pm with a max of 13. Turned out to be mostly sunny throughout and 14C here (16C in Liverpool).

    Apart from a bit of cloud late morning, it’s been pretty much wall to wall sunshine throughout and with much of it spent doing jobs in the garden, I’ve got my first sore lobster red face of the year.

    Yet another air frost this morning. This month is turning out to be the equivalent of October 1992 & 1993 for early cold.

    A bit of breakfast before I start Sundays shift in the garden although it’s overtime so may be just half a day before maybe a walk this afternoon.

    a bit of brightness about but a lot more cloud than yesterday although no rain in the forecast.

    Cloudier day in prospect but yet again dry. Another week ahead with possibly no rain featured. April and May most likely months to bring prolonged dry weather here, most settled  and therefore probably best time to visit for outdoor activities, not probably, definitely!

    Got me thinking when was the last time the region had a really wet April and May? Believe it or not, it was in 1993.

    We've had one of the two months as really wet and the other being wettish but both months being really wet, you have to go back to 1993.

    Yes back to back very wet April's and May's bit of an anomaly. 2012 nearly, but the last third of May was very dry warm and sunny, a brief respite in an otherwise exceptionally wet 4 month period.

    Tomorrow looking really nice. Possibly up to 17C, mostly sunny and no wind. Looking further ahead and we pick up an easterly influence from Wednesday lasting into the weekend but this shouldn't be cold. The continent starting to warm up now.

    Nice tea.

    Had to get takeaway as I'm rebuilding the shed. Lots of rot and rat gnawing found but it will be bionic when it's finished.

    It was a good (but busy) day yesterday out and around Edale for a walk to commemorate the 70th anniversary of it's founding, it's looking like the persistent afternoon cloud that's normally set-in once the temps have got going is diminishing and cloud-free skies are on the table for a few days over this week. One Moorfire last night over on the Sheffield side of the Moors which isn't surprising, but given the hills were crowded with daytrippers & wildcampers i'm surprised it was only just the one small Moorfire.

    Avoiding an air frost yesterday morning but it has dipped to -0.3C this morning, so that's the 14th air frost this month

    It got to -0.5c here. So another air frost and looking at the outlook there's potentially more to come.

    .... but another gorgeous morning with good prospects for the day and days to come.

    Certainly is temperature up to 17c today so a potential for 18 or 19c somewhere in the region
