The key word this morning is wind. There were very strong winds overnight and they are still blowing strongly around the village. The winds have been accompanied by quit a lot of snow and this has led to snow drifts around the village up to a meter high. Winds have the effect of dumping a lot of snow in certain places and blowing the snow clean away from others. I am calling the new snow number as 23cm this morning. In general if you have a car outside you will be doing a lot of shoveling this morning around the car.

The snow is much heavier than we have had recently due to the wind effect and warm temperatures. The temperature is -1c and heading to +4c. The move into warm temperatures will bring rain during the day and the strong winds will likely be with us through until Wednesday.
