    Is there any hope on the horizon of something more seasonal?

    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.

    It's 4*C, heavy rain, snow on fells, yet another frost forecast for tonight. Will this winter ever end?

    No higher than 7C here today. Bloody terrible for May. And with that blustery wind it's felt colder than that.

    Shocker of a day, max temp 9 degrees, rain on and off. Snow above 600m, and stuck all day. Another winter's evening, currently 5.1 degrees and heavy rain, followed by an air frost. Woeful for early May.

    Snail (Snow & Hail) now settled here on the ground as the heavier showers begin to move through and temp drops, the latest spring 'snow' I can recall from memory and to think only a few days ago it was shorts and t-shirt kind of weather with wildfires raging in the Peaks.

    Bizarre to see Ice laying on the City pitch from a hailstorm a couple of hours ago...in May. Such a strange spell of weather this past 5 weeks.

    I had thought it was snow, but knowing it was actually hail, that could happen in the middle of Summer as well. I've seen hail settle readily in the middle of July.

    Yeah, difference is, it often melts away within 5 minutes...not lay around as if it was January.

    It feels like January 4th not May 4th. It is bleak indeed, fells have a decent cover. Nothing particularly warm on the horizon, any dry sunny weather coincides with cold uppers meaning frost at night, more near average temps coincide with wind and rain. Are we looking at a May 96!

    A real big shelf cloud across Crewe, so dark and threatening. Some hail but nothing spectacular, expected a few flashes.

    Depends on how much fell. There was still hail on the ground in small drifts the next morning , hours after the supercell struck last June here.
