Snow Lying Days

Post by rjd1000 » Mon Jan 22, 2018 1:22 am

Just wondered if anyone has any averages to compare

My current annual average (2010-2018) is 14.3 days

February is only at 1.8 days which i imagine is about 4 days below what it should be - this decade we must have had 2 or 3 of the most snowless winters ever.

Met Office estimated 30-year average for me is 15.5 days

Annual average (1991 - 2015) here is a staggering 4 lying days of snow at 0900.

Same as Carl, about 4 days here average since 1995. Though 2010 is a bit of an outlier with 29!

I used sleet/snow falling as that was what the Met Office requested to be sent ( and still does ) . I would have to go through each spreadsheet to add up just the snow falling days seperatley ??

My figure is likley to be very "accurate" :lol: :lol: as I worked night shifts for years as well as early mornings, so was I was in a good position to make a note of the weather, when many may have missed it snow as it occurred in the middle of the night with no trace the follow morning
