The rainfall radar network is a great way of looking back at how affect the UK.
Here we see rainfallfrom 00:00 on Sunday 10 March to 09:00 GMT on Tuesday 12 March. It shows affecting much of the UK while an area of heavier snowfall affects northern , the and the far .
What’s particularly interesting is that it shows really well how the showers and the heavier snowfall across the south were moving in totally different directions. The snow showers can be seen moving in from theon north-easterly winds. Meanwhile, the heavier and more persistent snowfall was moving in from the south-west as an area of low pressure tracked across France. You can see how these two systems collided over Sussex and Kent, resulting in the heavy snowfall here.
At the very end of the sequence the wind changes direction again over the north of the UK, with the snow showers being blown across Scotland from the north.
