    Thought I might as well start this as on the way home from Keswick this afternoon it was snowing on the way into Penrith and again around Shap Summit. Very wet, miserable snow, but snow nonetheless. Strangely the temperature then dropped to 0º and it was raining in Orton, but I'm sure that makes sense to someone.

    Repeated hail showers this morning, though mixed in with rain. Temps hovering above 4C. Would like to say it's almost sleeting, and doubtless if I were in Telford it would be, but I suspect what I've got is occasional remnants of melted hail in the bigger splats of rain.

    Definitely under a big Cb at present; very dark, and the radar echo is reds and pinks. Surprised the temp hasn't fallen moire under this, but I'm learning not to be surprised or disappointed by anything weather wise.

    As mentioned above; it's a sorry state of affairs when I'm getting excited by the potential for it to sleet. Still have high hopes for the overnight period though.

    I'm moving to Telford...

    actually, no I'm not.

    LATE EXTRA

    Wow, huge lightning flash overhead and now very heavy hail. and several more flashes. OOooh, thunderhail, or something...will post a piccy later to fool you all into thinking it was snowing.

    It's an aside, but looking at the latest radar echos (and not checking any other data), more tornado potential for the S and SW this afternoon particularly if there's a decent gradient across this squall line. Certainly some beefy storms.

    Very chilly today and just had a hefty hail shower. Forecast says possibly prolonged spell of sleet/wet snow overnight tonight.

    I'd of thought that was snow if I didn't know better.

    I can just imagine Stratos' 2CV, just out of the frame, below his own flat. :o

    It's amazing what you can do with trick photography and polystyrene...just goes to show how easy it is to confuse hail with snow, and particularly sleet with melting hail. Os's little question earlier isn't so misplaced.

    I'm amazed how much colder it is up here today than 30 miles east. the RAF stations are all registering 7 or so down in the Vale of York.

    The 2CV is parked under the mock 5 series cover. It's my latest business venture...

    downpour of what started as rain finished in Hail, sleet, and the odd lump (given it's wetness) of snow. Surprising but I tried to get a picture of the lumps, got a very very blurred picture ill try to get it on.

    Temperature before shower was 5C, dropped to 2C, now recovered to 3C with more showers coming in.

    Another heavy-torrential shower gave rise to hail, turned back to rain then sleet featured at the end, showers lasted about 3 minutes

    It has been a bit sleety here too this evening. Suprising really to say my elevation. Apparently may get slightly more wintry through the night.

    You're doing well over there Stephen. Just rain and melting hail here. 3.4c

    I'm not surprised though to be honest, the Welsh hills are doing a grand job with the dew point! It's always going to vary wherever you go. I assume that Sheffield is getting the same effect as here and so they are getting sleet.

    Capel Curig is quite high up, it's about 5C at the moment, and yet it's 3C and rising here following a shower and it seems to be cooler, and wetter on the lee of the slopes, and therefore allowing, at certain altitudes, hail to be falling. I assume the sleet is a freak event although it has happened twice.

    I love these local weather phenomena, certainly adds some interest to the weather.

    Also the intensity of the showers must be figuring in there somewhere.
