The poll wanted snow (WS7weather report 11-2-2017)


As forecast we have had some light snow in our area this morning and we are likely to see a few more light flakes before any precipitation turns to rain.  The risk of further light snow/sleet/rain today is around 68%.

My poll yesterday showed that 53% of voters wanted some snow today and 47% didn’t.  It seems that the sparse covering we have this morning almost satisfies both camps.

Today will be a cold day with a top temperature od around 3c.  With some NE wind chill this thermometer reading will feel more like -1c.  Tonight will see more cloud cover and the minimum temperature will be around 2c.  There is a possibility of some more light snow overnight (57%).

Over the last four years the early morning air temperature has been similar to today.  In  2011 and 2012, however, we saw a large fluctuation with 2011 having an early morning (06:23 hours) reading of 5.7c whilst 2012 saw the air temperature at 08:14 hours a cool -5.5c.

Today, the wind will be bringing with it cool air from the NE and the average wind speed will be around 5-6mph.

Summary for today : A cold and cloudy day.  Further flutterings of light snow possible this morning.
