The sun angle as we work our way towards the middle of February is having an increasing impact on our daily temperatures, and on the snow that is rapidly melting.
The solar rays are hitting us at an angle similar to early November, as we are now several weeks past the winter solstice. This is most notably evident on totally sunny days,with afternoon temperatures rising quickly, even with snow on the ground and a relatively cold air mass in place.
A sure sign that Spring’s not too far away, despite the prospects for more snow before then.
