Once again the west seems most likely to suffer flooding. Heavy rain sweeps the country tonight and then again Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday also sees gales for many especially southern coastal counties.
Very disappointing as last night went down to only +1, after yesterday's+7 and +10 at this time in the morning. It was only a freak "one off" then. Was looking forward to a few days of spring. We did get to +12 yesterday and sunny. < did I dream it? Should be grateful we don't have floods here < telling myself off > >
Best place to be this week is central England, which will have the most dry interludes. South seems to be the wettest (esp SW) Generally becoming a windy day today, gales in the SE later. Wednesday gusting to 70+mph in the nw Scotland.
OYBBK the roads were very strange this morning. Really icy, I was sliding about worse than I have ever been but you couldn't see the ice.. But the temperature is 2 degrees-scary. I think people will be caught out TBH.
We have the same sort of thing sparkling, it must have been cold last night as I heard people scraping their cars this morning early on, but on the way to school the puddles were water, but the pavement was really slippery in places. That was a surprise and luckily I was holding DDs hand as her feet slid straight out from under her.
"Black Ice," probably, as you can't see it. Sun has been out for a while, but hazy now . Sensor out says +6 but it feels much colder. My Camelia is well and truly wedged between heavy bags of wet compost, another pot< got loads, some with dead plants in them> and the green wheely bin. So keeping fingers crossed it will not be blown over in the gales if/when they come. Thanks Kitten. Did it yesterday in my sunny +12 weather. < sweet memories>
<puts away snow boots, extracts waterproof trousers and rain hat from coat cupboard, gives up on hair for another week> I have just about, at the age of 43, got an outfit for every type of school run weather, but I am worried my rain hat will blow off
It is soooo cold here! Not sure what the exact temp is as I have small children draped over me so can't go and look, but the wind is biting! I really hope it does get up to +12 tomorrow, it will feel like spring
South Herts It was drizzling at 2pm but at 3pm < when I reluctantly got out from under duvet as so warm after my hour's doze> it had stopped. Wind is increasing though. +8 degrees but feels colder.. So tomorrow will be a cold +12? Today I was back in my snow clothes for walking little dog and my ears felt toasty warm in my scarfed hat. Bought it 30 years ago for Germany but was not warm enough for their winters, just right for ours though.
