Ok so Saturday we were working in the garden in a balmy 18c in glorious sunshine. Today (Sunday) was a little overcast with a few gusts. We have just received a red alert warning for the weather tomorrow ,4 ins of snow with severe gale force 8 nne with severe drifting likely and a wind chill of -9c this is unusual for the Channel Islands, I cannot recall the last time a red alert was announced over here. I know only 4 ins of snow is nothing to many but here it stops the island functioning full stop.

Around 2 hours ago here it was sunny with blue skies, And large snow flakes fell for around 5 mins. It was strange. Talk about a day for all seasons!

It looks like the area has had freaky weather in the past. I found this about it.

The British Isles do not experience extreme weather regularly. There have been several occasions where extreme weather events have occurred. In the winter of 1982, for a few days parts of central and southern England experienced temperatures lower than central Europe and Moscow. In contrast, the summers of 1975 and 1976 experienced temperatures as high as 35 °C (95 °F). It was so dry the country suffered drought and water shortages.[4] Extended periods of extreme weather, such as the drought of 1975–1976 and the very cold winters of 1946–1947, 1962–1963, 1978–79, 1981–1982 and 2009–2010, are often caused by blocking anti-cyclones which can persist several days or even weeks. In winter they can bring long periods of cold dry weather and in summer long periods of hot dry weather.

Well that's been an interesting start to the day. Left for the office at 6.30 with a few flakes around to get some work to do at home, within the hour my return journey was a nightmare barely made it up the hill to our place. Now got force 9 forecast for later in the morning with severe drifting, it hasn't stopped snowing since 0700

It lasted all of 5 minutes! Totally snowy skies while it was happening.
It stopped like somebody had flicked a switch, the overcast sky disappeared as if by magic. Lovely bright blue sky and sunny sunny sunny!
Like some sort of magic trick.

I was only discussing this at work this morning. I took my dogs out at 7.45am this morning in bright clear blue skies. As I got to the field it started to snow ... no clouds and still bright blue sky. I did think it was weird at the time.

I'm so ready for spring and to get my hands back in the dirt.

Today on my side of the pond, we are having some strange weather too.

I live in Michigan. In the upper peninsula they are getting blasted with 8 inches of snow. Here in the mitten, where I'm at, it's fifty degrees out, raining, and melting all the snow. Glad I'm on the warm side of this cold front.

Its probably an event where the clouds that dropped the snow or rain dissappeared before the precip hit the ground. It is not that uncommon, or the snow was blown aloft far from the clouds that produced it.

Sooner or later people will come to grips with the fact that things are changing, and not for the better. Hopefully soon we'll all wake up together and admit somethings out of whack and start looking for a solution.
