    Looks like the max here today (and the 2021 max so far) is going to be 21.9 °C. That really is very respectable indeed for the end of March! Not quite as much sun as yesterday, but still a decent amount, enough for a sneaky ice cream in town. Going to be a shock to the system when the cold hits...

    Well April snow is rare ..

    but looks on again 

    seems every 13/14 years as I’ve just mentioned in the mad thread , 

    2008 is the best on for my area over 3 inches ... I don’t remember 81 and think 1994 was just showers in the west mids I think ? 
    anyone have any memories of April snow ?

    Yes, but in Kent. 2013 when I was living in Rochester. Some of the heaviest snowfall I’ve ever seen but none settled.

    Summer like the last couple of days. Winter next week.

    Finally some interesting weather after absolute borefest that was end of winter and start of spring.

    Shorts and t-shirt yesterday to wearing a hoody, thick coat, hat and scarf today. I was frozen and I think more than I should have been but probably due to the severe contrast to yesterdays weather. I've known some notable cold fronts but I think the drop we experienced combined with the cold wind is quite something.

    Well, far too much going on today, had to pick something up from Eurocarparts click and collect from Coventry, it was horrible, only half the customers were wearing masks, some thought it was OK to park their Black Range Rovers in the middle of the car park and leave it there whilst they queued. Traffic in Coventry was as busy as a normal working day in Coventry, many hundreds of cars at Coombe Abbey as I drove past.

    Escaped back home and decided that there were far too many people at the marina so untied the ropes and chugged off in the cold afternoon sunshine.

    Now in the middle of nowhere.

    No passport required.

    I’m in London at the moment. Heading back up to Stoke soon. Looks like I may encounter the snow pushing south through the Midlands.

    Few odd snowflakes and pieces of graupel been ganging up on Solihull. Nice to see some of the wintry reports here this morning
