    Snow showers here yesterday and some quite heavy snow in Harrogate, although it melted in most places very quickly. Surprised to wake up to a blizzard here this morning as the showers were supposed to fade for today. I had to leg it to the allotment and shake the snow off the tunnel net before it damaged it. We then had a heavy hail shower and I had to do the same again.

    Things should warm up after the weekend, but the models are starting to firm up on another cold snap from Thursday, which could again involve snow possibly as far south as the midlands. Plenty of time for this to change though.

Very early days at the moment and everything could change, but the potential is there.
    The models had the general idea pretty much spot on at 10 days, which is impressive. The cold front is currently moving south, taking some sleet and snow with it, the snow risk mainly on higher ground. There is a yellow warning of ice in parts of the north east. Wintery showers are likely in the northern half of the country tomorrow with the possibility of more general rain turning to sleet or snow in places in the south east.

    The cold snap is likely to last over the weekend, but the snow risk diminishes after tomorrow as high pressure takes over from the west.

    There has not been much snow around here. Perhaps it is going to be a white Easter this year.

    We had -1C last night and it’s frazzled my magnolia flowers. No doubt I’ll see the new rose growth has been caught again too.
    Yes the penalty for nice blue skies at this time of year is often frosty nights. Tonight may be frosty in places again too.

    Thankfully somewhat drier for the next few days - yesterday was awful here with rain all day. The models have been split recently between a colder and a milder outlook, depending as usual on the exact position of the high pressure. It looks as though milder is gradually winning the battle, although the next few days will have cold nights in many places due to clear skies. Things do remain uncertain though, and some of the model runs are still showing a colder spell from about 12th March although the majority are not now showing this. Rainfall will also depend on the position of the high pressure and whether or not it allows any low pressure to make inroads from the west.

    Looks like we're in for a few drier days but colder nights. Dry is good, my daffs are getting soggy and dejected, but warmer would be nice too!
