    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.

    What's worrying is the radar now looks almost identical to what is was at 3:45 this morning, and we're still waiting😂

    Yeah; just taken my wifes Racing  Jazz to my pals body shop to get a scuff sorted and didn't think it was that cold when clearing the 0.5mm of snow off the car 😆

     

    Got to his in Fulwood and the winds picked up and it's absolutely bitter! Couldn't wait to get back into my car and ramp up the heated seat!

    Its looking wintry outside this morning but flipping freezing in the windchill and that was only to be out putting the bins back in, everywhere is frozen over with drifting snow so for me it'll be a day of staying inside and keeping warm. I was planning to be up on Chinley Churn but no chance in this weather and The  local MRT teams probably have enough on their plate already for today without needing a extra casualty to assist.

    Interesting how that shower over Leeds has blown up in intensity. Gives hope for this afternoon.

    Looking at the radar it’s almost like there is a slight northerly drift to the showers  now.

    looks like a spell of showers is now on the cards 

    Don't know for certain, I wonder if there is a subtle change in wind direction? A slight tilt towards the east? Behind a small trough?
