Snow showers were the order of the day for Thursday. We had far more in the morning than afternoon and although the temperature never got much above freezing the snow that did fall melted away almost as it fell.
This was how it looked during one of the showers in the afternoon. As soon as it stopped the snow began to melt.
There’s been much talk about how cold it will feel this week due to the wind chill factor as the wind is expected to come from the north. You can see from yesterday’s temperatures how much lower the temperature is when it’s adjusted to take into account wind chill (the purple line). It also shows how frequent those snow showers were especially through the morning. By the end of the day the rainfall/snowfall amounted to 6.6mm which would convert to a total depth of around 66mm (nearly 3”) of snow.
A start to the gardening season seems a little way off especially as this weather is set to continue into next week.
