    Made it to double figures today thanks to a decent morning and early afternoon, but the grey sheet returned after lunch and there have been a few spots of rain this evening.

    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

    Peaking at 11.6°C at: 12:41 a fair degree of patchy Sc cloud, is causing some warm and then cool parts to the day, still plenty nice enough to hit the garden and spread the horse compost, to encourage the raspberries to do their "thing"..

    The beach has enticed a few more brave souls..

    Not obvious earlier but there was obviously Ci/Cs above the Sc associated with the cold front. Became noticeable when it cleared here around1430. Not that obvious in the photo

    Whilst digging a shrub out this morning I came across this, 3' in to the stones & soil, there it was still hiding..fortunately I didn't harm it in anyway, I picked it up and moved it on after having a chat and passing the time of day!...

    It was a fair size about 10inches (25cms in new money) long, and I managed to pick it up and then move it on to place I wasn't planning to dig. Love these little surprises, as these are so rare, and yet every year we do manage to see at least one...

    Shows how stony and sandy our "soil" is here!

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

    Knocker what's your thoughts on this one, as the cooler air really doesn't appear to be overly potent, and the rain over north of France seems to be wandering around more to the east than initially expected?

    Love slow worms!

    I get quite a few in my garden as there's plenty of good places for them to safely bask in the sunshine.

    I don't know I mentioned it, but last Summer I was doing a little work on a small pond which sits above the bigger pond, and a 3, maybe 4' grass snake just appeared out of nowhere swimming across the water. That was a first for me!

    As far as I can see the front has really decayed and as you say the air is not that unstable so i'm thinking a few showers mainly in the east of the region, albeit not that warm.

    Pleasant morning here with a Sc sheet and little wind. Further to the above it looks like being dry and fairly sunny here but the decaying occlusion could well bring some wintry sghowers to the east of the region, which as we  know covers a large area

    Is there any more frustrating place to be than literally on the edge of a front?

    Pimply/drizzly while clearer sky is visible to the W/NW.

    There had not been a drop of rain this morning until I was putting washing on the line but now I wonder if it was worth the effort!

    Morning All, after an overnight low of  3.2°C at: 06:51 currently 5.5°C with a light breeze in from the NW, and Sc cover. Radar suggests the smallest risk of some patchy rain, but I think that'll disappear as it moves eastwards..

    The litter pickers are out and about on the raked beach this morning
