For me winter finally arrived today, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen high winds, snow, blowing snow, freezing fog and heavy icing up here. This morning we were having to go out every twenty minutes or so to clear off the instruments. We even had some shovelling to do too – definitely must be winter.

Now that the cold fronts are though we should see some clearing tomorrow as high pressure builds in. But it won’t be getting any warmer yet as the temperature will hover around zero all day but at least the winds will be easing off for a while.
