Snow!!

Well I woke up this morning to a very different sight; moderate snow fall a very stark contrast to last weeks, high temperatures and cloudless skies.
Having done some research i have come to the conclusion that this sudden change in weather is down to two main factors. We have low pressure front the swept up the country and is now lingering over us, which met cold air that hit Scotland first and quickly blew down the country, low pressure air often brings wet weather and mixed in with the cold air it turned these into wintry showers.
At the moment here it is 0.3 degrees, but with with a wind of gusts up to 35kmph, the wind chill it feels much colder, theres a thought for another project a device that measures wind child and direction, hummm some food for thought there.
