I recorded a maximum temperature of 16.8°C – in the UK as a whole Thornes Park (West Yorkshire) recorded a max of 18.4°C.
Our minimum in Wisborough Green for November was minus 1.9°C but nationwide it was minus 6.1°C at Aboyne (Aberdeenshire).
I noticed on the news recently that Edinburgh had ‘Thundersnow’ – a meteorological term I had not come across before. Apparently it is a thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain.
Climate change latest from the UK Met Office suggest that by the 2040’s most of southern England could no longer see sub-zero days and that snowy winters could become a thing of the past. This poses the question – how long should I keep my toboggan?!
