Weather Notes

Green Grass Returns

The recent cold duvet of snow that covered my garden has now completely melted and now, at 2pm, it is very overcast with a miserable intermittent rain and a cold SW wind. The temperature is still below normal at 3.8 deg C. At least I will not have to defrost the birdbath several times a day now as nighttime temperatures seem to be staying above zero as well.

However the cold air that maintained the arctic weather over the UK for about a month is only just the other side of the North Sea and could pay us another visit very quickly. February can be a very wintry month as was the case in 2009.
