Last day of the month and more snow? (WS7 weather report 28-2-2018)


It is a particularly cool start to the morning today so you can expect some icy patches when you step out this morning

At 06:10 hours the air temperature was only -5.5c and I can with some certainly that it isn’t going to be very warm today.  Our top daytime temperature is only likely to be around -3c and overnight the minimum temperature will be back down to around -6c.

The radar images are showing that we are likely to see some snow flurries during the morning (from around 09:30 hours).  More regular precipitation (most likely in the form of snow) will begin late morning and during parts of the afternoon.  (We can expect around 6mm of snow fall today (1mm if rain) but, like yesterday, it will be  mostly dry powdery snow (due to the low humidity).

The wind will be brining with it cool winds from the NE and the average wind speed will be around 7-9mph.  At these wind speeds the “top temperature” of -3c will feel more like -6.1c (Steadmann method).  It is another day when we need to wrap up warm and keep any travelling to a minimum.

Summary: A very cold day with a 65% risk of some snow showers.  Top temperature -3c.
