The Evening Leader reports that the current cold snap is rare, but has certainly been seen before.
Apparently, Rod Taylor, who runs the official weather station at Ysgol Brynhyfryd, Ruthin, said of the past two days snowfalls:
It is highly unusual to have it so early but it is not unknown here.
I usually average the first day of frost around October 23 or 24.
It certainly isn’t the first time I have seen snow on Moel Famau at this time of year.
I rather suspect we’re going to have to expect more frequently changing weather patterns in the years ahead.
What’s the earliest / latest that you’ve seen snow on Moel Famau? Please leave a comment below.
