      Snow in the Spring?

      With Easter just a couple of weeks away, today's weather has certainly left a few unusual opportunities for any photographers out there.

      It didn't feel like spring on monday, we had blizzard conditions here and I nearly had to spend the night at work. Roads were total chaos took an hour to get home where it normally takes 15 minutes, and I was one of the lucky ones.

      Not great. I have been diving before now at Easter when we had snow, hail, rain, hot sunshine, strong winds and lack of wind over the holiday.

      Re: Snow in the Spring?

      No problem, but the blossom is out and many of the spring flowers are in bloom around here. Due to the topology of the area, often things tend to bloom a little early. The Isle of Wight, Solent and Portsdown Hill all contribute to the milder conditions.

      I missed the opportunity to get some snaps of the Daffodils surrounded by snow. Many were weighed down by it too. They have recovered though.

      The Daisys were all covered over so they missed their photo op too.

      Below are a couple more snaps I took.

      Re: Snow in the Spring?

      I have known many occasions when it snowed heavily in June, but never settles then as the temp is too high.

      Snow in April also very common.
      I flew to Germany on April 6'th 1977 and both the UK and Northern Germany was deep in snow.
      By coincidence, I left Germany when leaving the army on April 6'th 1980, and again both countries were deep in snow.

      It is currently 7.4c outside today, almost a heat wave by recent standards.
      I am tempted to go out for a walk in my thong!

      Thats a good microclimate where you live there certainly isn't anything in blossom around here, even the daffodils aren't out yet, the only thing in full flower are the snowdrops (still). Even the weeds aren't growing. Daisies... i havn't seen one of those since last autumn.

      Thats a Malus (crab apple) by the look of it?

      I remember snow in april once, a blizzard iirc... must have been early the 1970's. I don't remember the others dates. I remember snowfall in June once, but that was in scotland. Our summer holidays, lol

      We've totally dodged the snow so far. Had some high winds though.
