Similar here we had a few showers a a strong wind for a few hours but nothing serious, but we still have some snow on the ground here one week after the beast.
Today is 6c and cloudy

Snow is a thing of the past where I live, almost forgotten about it!
Very mild weather but some rain.

It snowed here yesterday and overnight there was a light snowfall. It will soon melt.Winter is over for us in The GTA.
However, in Nova Scotia and in the Eastern United States they are experiencing the full blast of winter.

Very bright and breezy today, not cold but apparently we are going to have another cold spell with heavy wind. All the same to me.

Snowing heavily. When I got up around 7am and opened door to get milk it was snowing then but rain seemed to wash it away; rain stopped and now il neige plus. Also John's car has been nicked from the drive, the land rover. Just been through the business of reporting it to the Met Police online & he's on to his insurance.

There appears to have been no more snow but what fell yesterday is still there, frozen. Cold day but not too bad. Elderly cats sitting beneath radiators, Tom in and out of catflap unfazed by weather. I remember when our Jessica loved sliding about in snow, now she is pushing 18 she doesn't go out, her one remaining daughter, Suzie,who will be 17 in May, is none too keen either.

It's the Vernal Equinox, after which the days are longer than the nights until September, and it still feels like midbloodywinter! The snow's gone, but it's bloody cold.

The TV station CP24 just informed me that the Spring Equinox will occur in 2 hours and 17 minutes!

The sun is shining and it is cold and damp outside with a 1degree Celsius temperature.in other words I call it "English weather"

It's not that cold here, 7degrees, and the sun is shining. According to the Beeb weather, it will be very cold tonight but the temp will go up to 9 tomorrow.

Pondy, we only have temperatures of 1 or less during severe cold snaps, two of which we've had recently; it's usually fairly mild. We also only have thirty degrees (more likely 23 but 30 has been known in places like Torquay), during heat waves of which we generally get a couple or three each year. Last year's were particularly good, September was amazing. In between is pleasant with some rain. However where I live is not bad at all, in the North of England the weather is far worse for freezing temperatures and snow.

We haven't seen Serenjen recently, I hope she's still enjoying Yorkshire. I've just been watching 'Heartbeat' :) .
