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.

    Sunshine now in the northern lake district as hopefully the showers have now ceased for the day. Some pretty amazing cloudscapes now to the west

    Dark cloud bases to my north that i've been watching for the past hour towards the Manchester direction, nothing in the way of sferics (yet) but it looks like the Peak District terrain is giving the convection an added boost.

    Dry at Pennington Flash, but dark clouds threatening all afternoon. Now thunder and CG strikes seen. Nothing detected on the various apps.

    It's actually been a very decent day in the Manchester area up to now, dry and fairly warm feeling in the sun earlier this afternoon.

    Dropped in pretty lucky here today with it mainly dry and, until late afternoon plenty of warm feeling sunshine.

    a lot of threatening clouds about now but so far the rain has held off.

    The sky to my NW is solid.

    It wouldn't surprise me if there is some local flooding in that area.

    Reports on the MEN website of some pretty widespread flooding in the Bolton area, particularly around Horwich.

    Very lucky to dodge any showers all day in Nantwich whilst out walking. It was also the first warm day in ages where a t shirt was sufficient. Threatened to rain this evening but so far dry

    Heavy showers on and off for the past couple of hours. Tomorrow not looking great either but Tuesday & Weds not looking too bad at the moment. Mostly dry for a change - Hallelujah!

    Like RobR, I found this morning quite warm. Later I headed across the Pennines on the M62 and saw no rain until I was dropping down into Yorkshire at which point it rained heavily for a while. I was fearing the worst today but was pleasantly surprised.

    Wow, I think the Bolton area had cheshires share of the downpours.  Despite the threatening skies late afternoon Macc was sunny, warm and dry all day, think there was a bit of drizzle in the night.  Still a cool feel this morning at 9°,  misty over the tops and dull.  Accomplished lots in the garden yesterday.  Last year my peony had about 13 buds and 11 bloomed, this year there's only 5 buds, its not liked the cold April and cool May so far.

    Most plants are not doing that well except dandelions it seems. More hardy plants doing best. Everything seems about 3 weeks later than last year at least, mind it was a very early spring last year.

    Well, despite the horrid looking charts, met office forecast of heavy, thundery showers, and personal anger at the weather. Yesterday was a really nice day. We had sunny spells all day, before all clouds cleared off completely around 4pm; leaving room for a cloudless, Azores blue sky for a few hours. 
     

    This morning has started sunny and warm, the promise for the next 2-3 days is sunny spells with around average temperatures; slightly below feel to it though when the sun goes in. 
     

    No rain really in the forecast now till Thursday, with tomorrow forecasting a lovely sunny day! Just shows that even the lowest of lows can have the sunny period, just like areas of high pressure can sometimes offer periods of rain. 
     

    An ever-increasingly promising outlook for summer too. Plenty of positivity around!
