I'd allowed for that, but raised an eyebrow at how relatively 'mild' it was compared to the daytime 3F of Sunday and the 0F of Monday.
Was the minus sign omitted from the overnight temp in error?

It's 0345 here so not entirely compos mentis.
Allowances may need to be made!

"compos mentis."? Watch your language.

Same here, cold as shit then warms up a little and dumps a couple inches of rain then cold again.

doods. :/ -16C today. snow tomorrow. And we do snow. But this is going to be a lot and wet, they say .....all schools, courts, non-essential police... are already closed. And my gym and Friday is a work out day. Snow is making me fat.

And I still have to go to work.

Shoveling should make up for the gym loss.

White out blizzard outside



Saw a gap in the weather, took Carrot to the field - deep snow and silent, but quite bright and sunny ....


We were on the field when the sky darkened and then we were inside a snowglobe. Visibility was a few feet at best. My nose was running, so I sniffed and breathed in snow.

Got home and had to melt the snowballs off Carrot's feet :P

This week, due to a ferociously cold air stream from Siberia, the UK has experienced snowfall in varying amounts.

This afternoon the Met Office has issued a red warning for the central belt of Scotland which indicates a risk to life. In their words:

Quote:
Between 15:00 Wed 28th and 10:00 Thu 1st

Heavy snow showers and drifting of lying snow in the strong easterly winds will become more widespread across the area later on Wednesday afternoon, through the evening and overnight into Thursday.
Roads will become blocked by deep snow, with many stranded vehicles and passengers.
Long delays and cancellations on bus, rail and air travel are expected.
Some communities could become cut off for several days. Long interruptions to power supplies and other services.

Worth looking at the full size version here: NPAS Twitter.

We haven't had too much to worry about here so far but there's concern that another system approaching from the SW will be a force to be reckoned with on Friday morning. I just hope that it doesn't get this far.

ETA Great minds...

So far so good here. Snow has only started to fall/settle seriously here in the past hour. I have solid fuel heating, gas cooking back up and a generator to keep the Innernets working.

I see it on the map. Be careful of the yellow snow next to you. Don't eat it.

Meanwhile, the North Pole is above freezing in the middle of winter.
