29th April - Heavy Snow Showers

Posted - 29/04/2016 12:00

Continuing with the cold weather theme and today the 29th April 2016 has seen some very heavy snow showers, closed high roads and first thing this morning an inch or so of wet snow.
At midday the temperature is just 2°C! This is not that unusual for the Peak District or High Peak as just 3 years ago although a month earlier we had very deep snow and enormous snow drifts even down to 700 to 800 ft above sea level.

Winters in the early 1980s saw some very severe winters and heavy frosts and running from September to June!
On June 2nd 1975 snow stopped play at Buxton cricket ground as Derbyshire played Lancashire.

As a result of this energy phenomena we here in England have had a very mild winter and spring that is up until April 2016 which has been a very cool month. Has La Nina started?

There are clear indications in the Pacific and Atlantic that show the El Nino (in the Pacific) to have almost if not totally gone and a rapid cooling of the oceans started. Watts Up With That - EL Nino
