23rd February - Today's News: Two Dead in NSW Floods
In Australia, more floods leave two dead, thousands told to evacuate across NSW, but in contrast there a drought fear for Victoria as rain in short supply and water storage drops - some places there have had their driest six months on record.
Meanwhile, all England gets is a few snow grains .... although to be fair there's been a light dusting in parts of the SE and some heavier snow showers affecting the NE this morning. The Daily Mail as usual has pictures, warning us that snow flurries and 'stilleto sharp' winds are set to chill Britain until Wednesday with lows of minus 11 (in Aviemore)
And interestingly, the forecast is for more snow in polar regions, less for the rest of us. Hmmm, that's just what you need to start an ice age!
