Forecast Correct - Snow Showers

Monday was declared the coldest day of the year in some places in the UK. I'm not sure it was our coldest day although there are a few different ways of looking at this. The first is simply the lowest temperature we've experienced whilst the second way might be to consider the lowest average daily temperature and thirdly a sort of lowest high if you get my meaning.

Based on the above this winter's coldest days so far are:
  • Lowest temperature -4.3°C (24.3°F) on 23 February 2018
  • Lowest average daily temperature -0.7°C (30.7°F) on 11 December 2017
  • Lowest daily high temperature 1.4°C (34.5°F) on 10 December 2017

In any case it still looks as though Wednesday or Thursday this week will be the coldest day of winter if the forecast is correct.

The forecast for this week has been about right. It's cold and we're getting some snow showers. On Monday morning we'd had the lightest covering of snow.

Despite the cold temperatures and a few snow flurries throughout the day on Monday the little bit of snow that had fallen melted away. Tuesday morning's covering was a little more but nothing very noteworthy.

The forecast for the next few days is for the snow showers to continue and for the coldest of the weather to have passed by the end of the weekend. Gardening may resume in a week or so.
