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

    I noticed on the sat images that Cornwall was poking out of the cloud nicely and now it is a cracking evening 🙂

    I'm moving from Exeter to Lincoln this Friday so wondered if this northerly would give me a rare snowy farewell to Exeter, but overall it's been pretty standard fare for Exeter with a bit of rain, sleet and graupel.  The dry air mass is limiting showery activity though, and it's probably a case of the dry air and the wind sucking out some of the precipitation, so less falls near the ground than is suggested by the radar.  It might have snowed here if the showers had been heavier.  I had to wrap up warm when out and about, but in the sunny intervals and out of the wind it was fairly pleasant for walking in.

    Edit: someone who lives locally confirms that it did snow in Exeter at around 7am (though it didn't settle).  I set my alarm for 7:15am and woke up just after it had passed over, so I didn't see what the shower fell as.

    I wondered if you had snow from that shower around 7am on Tuesday. We just caught the edge of it here with nice fluffy flakes falling slowly, starting with a temperature of -2.6C. Just to my west had more with about 1cm on Aylesbeare Common.

    Temps were then mostly about 6-8C during the day, with sleet/graupel showers. Then it dropped to -2.8C overnight, though 8 of the last 14 Aprils have had -2.7C or lower so it wasn't as noteworthy here as some spots further east. Cloud stopped it falling lower.
    Yesterday was mostly cloudy with a max of 8.2C. 

    Mostly cloudy this morning too. 4.4C currently after a min of -1.1C at 11pm last night.

    Morning All, after an overnight low of 0.2°C at: 01:28, things have risen nicely to 9.8°C at: 11:45. The breeze now in from the SW has picked up noticeably this morning, but away from that breeze, it's pleasant in the sunshine..The beach has a few brave souls this morning

    The cold front tracking south tomorrow and stalling in the Channel Saturday does not bode well

    Those suggested rainfall figures don't look large though Knocker..

    I would agree Dorset. I suspect Saturday more a cold and dank day, perhaps brighter and more showery sunday, at least in my neck of the woods

    After what started out as an overcast day, it's turned out really pleasant, sat out in the garden with an afternoon tea of scones, jam and cream and the juices of the apple(!), very nice...Even at 10.6°C at: 13:48, it's really warming in the sun...nice..

    Decent day out there.

    Finally got the back doors fitted, after breaking them on Xmas day. 

    They're now wide open so I can listen to the birds. And get rid of the smell of sealant.

    Lucky you. It’s been cloudy all day keen wind and 11.7c as of now. I reckon the trees are about 10 - 14 days behind on last year.
