Welcome to my Blog, bringing you my weather observations through North East Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, North Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and into the City of York during my daily commute from Melton Mowbray, by car and train.
Tuesday 4th March 2008:
Melton Mowbray 06:30hrs 0.3'C
Winter arrives in Melton Mowbray at the end of the season with falling snow and a dusting underfoot. This morning in Melton the snow was falling and around 1cm was lying on the ground. The snow became patchy and lighter during the drive to Grantham, only becoming a little heavier through Waltham on the Wolds.
During the train ride north there was evidence of light snow fall between Grantham and Newark before it broke to clear sunshine heading towards Retford.
On arrival into York it is cold, clear and bright with a fresh north westerly wind making it feel bitter.
Temperature at 06:30 was 0.3'C, lowest recorded overnight temperature Minus 3.1'C
Pressure at 06:30 was 1013 hPa
Tomorrow: Frosty start then milder.
