I think what you really, really need is a good dump of snow - about chest high. As long as it doesn’t rain and make the snow weigh 10 times as much, you’re all set for making an army of snowmen, snowladies, igloos, snow forts, etc… And you’ll probably have enough left over for a good old fashion snow ball fight. Sounds good, right? All we seem to be getting here are “teasers” - less than knee high.
Our high today reached 24F/-4C, but it was a beautiful sunny and clear day. Still clear with lots of stars at 8:35 PM and a temperature of 16F/-8C. Supposed to go down to 12F/-11C. Clouds are starting to move in. There’s some at 25,000 feet. More will start moving in toward midnight. Scouts for the snowstorm? Wait until @TerriB’s cold front moves across the pond to you. That should change your rain into snow. The only drawback would be it may be a little too cold to play outside for long. I did notice that as the week progresses, you’re temperatures seem to be going up. Maybe they’ll get high enough that @Helen would have to leave the country to go on holiday!
