    Tbh Im dubious just how much of that PPN is falling to the ground, its all coming stratuscumulus clouds also so hardly convective, its just moisture from the sea.

    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.

    Blizzard-like here now. Nice to see the Glossop streamer into Manchester.

    Got some light snow on the northern edge of this more intense band, which is better than I had anticipated - I’d written off anything until reading your knowledgeable explanations - thank for these!

    Not quite sub-zero yet here though so will need some intensity to cool surfaces enough for any snow to settle. Hopefully we have a covering tomorrow to kick off a very interesting and unique week (or two!) ahead!

    Anyone under the heavier line from Altrincham to the south Wirral?

    Radar looks good in the east, really building now.

    Well if that ain't a clue to go to sleep and stop staring at the bloody radar nothing is. 

     

    Looked like you were on western edge of a proper streamer few hours back

    PPN evaporating before reaching the ground, the air is just going to be too dry on the western side of the Pennines I think.

    Suspect that would cause the same issue tbh. Our best set ups is probably a big low over us with proper cold air wrapped around it giving persistent snow. 

    Of course a trough does help aswell I bet. That said Carlisle got battered with snow in 2018 so perhaps the dry air issue is probably more of issue with stratuscumulus, if/when we get proper convective cloud, that might not be an issue? As I said, the radar may look full of it but reading the other threads, I suspect not everything showing is reaching the ground.

    Wrong choice of words, I mean the front of the low for the end of the week from the west. A trough feature spring up somewhere would nice though. I think we got one at some point in 2018 but it was so windy nothing settled - however that could have been early 2019.

    Judging by last week and last night the Radar can’t be trusted. Thunder Snow in Carlisle should have six foot drifts by rights.

      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.
