A cold wintry day

There was a little bit of snow overninght that gave Tideswell a patchy cover in the morning. The snow-line proper, though, was at about 400m and a patchy snow cover persisted all day above that level.

In Tideswell it was a raw, cloudy day with quite a wintry feel to it.

It looks like temperatures will remain below the average for the time of year through to the weekend and probably into the first part of next week. There’ll be a lot of cloud but precipitation amounts are likely to be small. What happens later next week is a matter for speculation. The computer models are giving a very wide range of possible solutions so what I take from that is that the current situation is not forecastable with any useful level of reliabilty beyond about 5 days.
