What's happening your way?
Currently thick and fast (oo-er missus) in Derby.
The sky is absolutely full of it.

Same in Brum.

Slight flurry mid afternoon but nothing since on the east coast, absolutely freezing though.

A heavy flurry for 20 mins but suns out now

Big, big flakes falling south of you. The lawn is covered ☃️ soon

We had about a minute of snow at lunchtime then the sun shone again.

M0nica Tue 06-Apr-21 17:47:17

It snowed dyesterday, but none today, even though the temperature is a lot lower.

Callistemon Tue 06-Apr-21 17:48:09

Please keep it all 🌞

Big flakes here in Notts too, but it’s gone and the sun is out now. It was pretty, my sort of snow. Pretty, then gone!

We have had showers of it in central Scotland but none lying thank goodness.

Just the odd flutter now and then. Sunny at the moment, but bitterly cold (Black Country)

Oopsadaisy1 Tue 06-Apr-21 17:52:31

Brief flurry at the moment in Oxfordshire.

NotAGran55 Tue 06-Apr-21 17:57:17

A few showers this afternoon here in West Berkshire. The sky is very grey overhead so expecting more ❄️.

Sun but freezing

We woke up to about two inches of snow yesterday. It thawed as the sun came up but it’s snowed on and off ever since and hasn’t been above about 3deg.

A few flurries plus a brief blizzard this afternoon in Oxfordshire.

Shandy57 Tue 06-Apr-21 18:08:22

We've had flurries on and off all day in Northumberland but it's melted, lovely sunshine now and blue skies. Do be very careful near the sea, my dog and I got soaked with a huge and unexpected wave, I thought I was going to lose him.

I spoke to my daughter in Belfast this morning, she said it was heavy there.

SueDonim Tue 06-Apr-21 18:11:16

Uh-oh, Met Office snow warning for us here in N of Scotland has just been issued. Batten down the hatches!

Redhead56 Tue 06-Apr-21 18:20:28

My daughter WhatsApp me from Lancashire it’s was snowing there. Just-an hour later it was snowing and hale stones here Liverpool.

PamelaJ1 Tue 06-Apr-21 18:25:18

Beautiful sunshine now but 30mins ago it was snowing here in Norfolk

NfkDumpling Tue 06-Apr-21 18:28:14

Apparently that lumpy snow we had in Norfolk today is called graupel. I never knew!

NfkDumpling Tue 06-Apr-21 18:30:07

We nearly got to 4 degrees in the north of Norfolk SueDonim!

Aldom Tue 06-Apr-21 18:35:09

I'm in Oxfordshire and on Easter Sunday whilst out walking in Oxford there was a prolonged period of snow. We sang Jingle Bells as it felt more like Christmas than Easter. Today we have had a couple of flurries but not enough to bring on Jingle Bells grin

Oofy Tue 06-Apr-21 18:36:32

Bright spring sunshine here in Pembrokeshire, with a few wispy white clouds. 6 Deg C but feels colder as chilly wind. No snow. Kids here grow up hardly seeing snow

Bluebellwould Tue 06-Apr-21 19:00:16

A brief flurry of flakes swirling in the strong freezing wind, near Heathrow.
