Snowfall as temperatures plummet.
28 Oct 2018 – Winter crashed in with one of the coldest October days for a decade yesterday.
Two inches of snow fell on higher ground and closed Highland roads as temperatures plunged to minus seven on Friday night and snow gates on the A939 between Cockbridge and Tomintoul, Moray were shut due to “heavy snowfall”.
It was the first significant snow in October since 2012, according to the Met Office.
The forecast is for raw winds until Tuesday.
According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.
