    Looking at the wind direction charts and there is a little window of opportunity tonight for those further west.

    Wind due to become more easterly, which will see a few showers develop in the Channel and move towards southern Devon coasts for example.

    Met warning for midnight to 11am tomorrow reflects this. On va voir!😀

    It wasn't a lot but it was enough for a dwarf snowman

    A bit late in posting 😂 but we done very well (relatively) down here in the far west of Cornwall today. Proper snow for a solid 6 hours and unlike elsewhere in the country, no issue with settling. Set

    Where do they get this info from?

    I get that automated forecasts aren't always the best place to look, but that's just ridiculous.

    Despite yellow weather warnings for snow and ice across Devon, the Met Office is not predicting any of the white stuff for Plymouth

    Well it’s just sods law really. We finally got an easterly in winter but we’re missing that one important ingredient that we seem to get every other day of the year - precipitation!

    Roll on storm season!

    Wintry flurries ? Can the  BBC not mention the word snow? In Scotland some towns have had 2 feet of snow and not one report. I’ve just seen the forecaster mention more wintry flurries in Scotland,  yeah that’s what’s given 2 foot of snow . If it’s a flurry it’s snow, sleet or cold rain doesn’t flurry. Cockles.

    Nothing particularly interesting here so far this winter other than the perishing cold, and a few millimetres of snow grains early yesterday morning, gone before midday (but a snow day!). Tonight could be interesting temperature-wise as I almost beat my record -9.3°C grass minimum from the 2018 Beast just now, it's dropped to -9.2°C and currently -8.6.

    My record air minimum of -6.0 from the 2018 Beast could be under threat later tonight, it is currently -3.3. Having no snow is frustrating to say the least.

    A fair bit of snow on the radar over Kent and Sussex. Wonder if some of us over here will see any if the wind veers more easterly but I imagine it’ll break up by then...

    Interesting to note; the precip is moving in a more Westerly fashion.

    What you mean? 

    The precip may keep creeping along southern counties.

    Some pretty potent snow showers on the southern coast of Isle of Wight according to the radar. Not sure if anyone on here based in that area.

    Wheeyyy!! Finally can report a covering on the ground in my part of my the Island since 2018! Southern parts of the Island are getting the best of as I was thinking Tonight. I'm just happy to see a covering at this point, in fact I was that confident of seeing something I planned an all nighter 🤣

    Can confirm it's snowing just outside St Austell here 

    Looking at the radar been under the current snow shower for around a hour 

    There's a smaller band to the south going up but looks unlikely to go here 

    The wind is definitely something though making the snow drift in places

    It's been snowing here since at least 5am. Good covering so far, haven't ventured out fully yet to see how much. Looks somewhat similar to what we had a few weeks ago!

    Small flakes settling on the velux windows . No street lights here so too dark to see outside yet. Nice to read that Cornwall and IOW are getting a little coating ☃️☃️

    It is good to hear, isn't it!

    The MO app has updated with various points today that I could get snow, but I'm not holding out much hope for anything more than what we have had this morning

      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.
