Forecast for a Keen Frost and Snow

Monday was another dull and cold day. The temperatures were almost a repeat of Sunday's although the overnight low was a little bit colder.

The weather forecast on Monday suggested a very keen overnight frost into Tuesday morning and the some snow falling in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
We haven't had that keen frost on Tuesday morning. The temperature fell to 1.8°C (35.2°F) enough to frost the greenhouse windows and timbers.
We'll have to see if the forecast of snow in the early hours of Wednesday morning turns out to be correct. The chances are that snow will fall on higher ground in the Pennines and we'll escape with just some rain.

Meanwhile in the garden some plants are carrying on as though the cold weather isn't here.
Things might change if that snow does turn up as forecast.


  1. How I envy you the cold weather. Right now it is 92F at 2:16 pm PST. I often wonder if I will ever see winter again.

    The color of that geranium is charming. Don't often see that soft pink in a zonal, more often in a scented.

    1. I don't think that pelargonium is enjoying today's snow. Early afternoon and it's just reached 36F. Not gardening weather!!
