Wednesday really brought a taste of winter with it let alone autumn. With a little bit of luck Wednesday might be as bad as it gets all winter never mind autumn.
Early morning rain turned to snow around dawn and continued falling until around lunchtime when it turned back to rain. It wasn't heavy snow and it was the wet, slushy type that doesn't normally hang about for too long. The highest temperature all day was 3.4°C (38.1°F) falling to just below freezing late into the evening.
This time last year we were basking in lovely November weather as the temperature soared to 16.2°C (61.2°F). The mild weather stayed around for a few days last November. This is in stark contrast to this year as November has a distinctly more winter than autumn feel to it.
