20th December - Today's News: Record Low Temperatures as Snow Causes More Chaos in Britain

What a weekend!

After a light dusting of snow on Friday night it started snowing again just as I got up at 6.00am Saturday morning - and didn't stop for 10 hours. A total of 11 inches on the grass. And then, overnight the temperature fell to -16.2c in my garden and -19.5c at Pershore Throckmorton (a site record for there). My previous lowest temperature was -10.5c. During the day the temperature only rose to -7.3c and last night fell back to -14.6c

As I write, the south coast is getting pummeled with more heavy snow, but fortunately we're only likely to get some light stuff later, if anything at all. But it's expected to remain below freezing all week.
