Goggles day

22nd March 2024

As expected the colder temperatures have returned with strong winds and snow showers of varying intensity.

Definitely a day for the goggles.

New localised areas of windslab were slowly developing through the day with the expectation of them becoming more widespread by the end of tommorow.

The showery nature of the current weather pattern always makes for difficulty in predicting snow amounts.  At time of writing we’re expecting heavier showers, possibly easing later in the day on Saturday.
