Northbourne: snow returns in 2012
Northbourne: snow returns in 2012
Typically for Bournemouth, the snow has finally made an appearance this winter, a week or so later than most of the rest of the UK. In fact, earlier this evening, it had looked less likely as initial light snow at around 8:30 had turned to sleety drizzle by 9:15. However, I drove a couple of miles at 10:45 and, while it was settling on parts of the pavements, the roads were too damp for whiteness to stick.

It has continued snowing, though, and the roads are now white - as we look out across the junction of Gillam Road onto Leybourne Avenue in the suburban north of the town at about twenty to one this Friday morning.

The forecast is that it may turn to rain before dawn; we shall see. (Edit:) This proved to be largely correct with snow only remaining on grass, and then only thinly, by 8am.
