Heavy snow showers in Tideswell today

It’s been a wintry day in #Tideswell with sunny periods and occasional heavy snow showers. The ups and downs of the temperature trace show the timings of the showers and sunny periods very well! In the heavier showers the visibility has been below 200m briefly and there have been temporary coverings of 1-2 cm on the ground. When the sun came out the lying snow melted readily, except where it was in deep shade. It’s hard to remember that only a few days we were all going about in summer clothing. Such is springtime in this country. Maximum temperature here this afternoon was only just above 4C.
