Coldest This Winter

It was well forecast that this week was going to be the coldest few days of winter and it's certainly turned out to be the case.
Temperature & Wind Chill Records 26-28 February 2018
Early on Wednesday morning the temperature fell to -5.7°C (21.7°F) giving us our lowest temperature of the winter. It's our coldest February day since 08 February 2012 when the temperature fell to -5.9°C (21.4°F) and it's our lowest temperature since 16 January 2013 when it fell to -5.8°C or  21.6°F. It's made it into my list of top 20 coldest days.

Yesterday's list of this year's coldest winter temperatures now reads as follows:
  • Lowest temperature -5.7°C (21.7°F) on 28 February 2018
  • Lowest average daily temperature -1.1°C (30.0°F) on 27 February 2018
  • Lowest daily high temperature 1.3°C (34.3°F) on 27 February 2018

Meanwhile, the snow showers continue to fall. They have been more frequent and heavier so far through Wednesday morning.
