“All eyes to the South” once the snow clears

Today has been a mix of wet snowflakes and cold sleety rain. Temperatures, which had been falling earlier, are now on the rise, so I am somewhat glad to be indoors. Now that the official winter climate statistics are in, it is time to have a look back at how the season fared. This is achievable courtesy of this link - here. My figures tie in … Continue reading “All eyes to the South” once the snow clears

Late Winter or Spring? more evidence of climatic shifts besetting nature.

Do you remember this? The effect this upcoming spell of weather will have on Phenology events will be most interesting.
