The North East of England was taken a little by surprise on Friday morning, the 8th January 2021.
An area of rain had approached from the North West and turned to snow after midnight. Some places received 8-10 hours of continuous snow.
Depth increased dramatically with altitude. In Durham City we had only 2-3 inches of snow, but in some of the hillier parts of County Durham snow depths of 6-10 inches were common, especially high ground to the south of the region.
Here are some photographs of my own and taken by friends on social media today. Enjoy!
Use a home weather station to monitor your environment, both inside and outside your home, or install one in your greenhouse to help you keep an eye on the conditions in the garden. Home weather stations can bring you all sorts of data on the prevailing conditions: temperature, humidity, time, moon phase, wind speed, rainfall as well as air purity and co2 details.
