More snow showers

Note for Sunday 20th
A cold sunny morning with snow showers in the afternoon. Topcliffe in North Yorkshire had overnight lows of -13.8°C and -13.1°C over the weekend making our -4.1°C seem quite warm.

Note for Saturday 19th
Cold again
Friday turned out to be colder than Saturday despite that overnight -4.1°C. It rained / sleeted rather than snowed early evening as the temperature managed 2°C. The rain cleared to allow temperatures to fall sub zero again overnight.
Note for Friday 18th
Coldest day of winter
The maximum temperature today reached 0.3°C giving us the coldest day of winter so far. I’ve added the minimum temperature of -4.1°C recorded for Friday night / Saturday morning to the chart. With a start so cold there’s every indication that Saturday will set a new record for the coldest day.
We had a few flurries of snow during the day.

Note for Thursday 17th
Snow flurries
The forecasts were right. We had a few flurries of snow, enough to give us just a dusting by midnight. An average temperature of just 2°C meant it was our coldest day of winter so far.
Note for Wednesday 16th
Dull, cloudy and wet
A repeat of Tuesday but with a bit more rain. The forecast seems uncertain about any snowfall.
Note for Tuesday 15th
Dull and Cloudy
Remained dull and cloudy all day with light rain at times. The outlook is for colder weather with some snow by the end of the week.
Note for Monday 14th
3 day drought ends
It couldn’t last and today more rain. Will it be snow over the next few days? The forecasts seem to suggest that’s a possibility.

New! The location of my weather station is in Ossett, West Yorkshire, England.
