Early taste of winter
We’ve had an early taste of winter today. We had rain mixed with snow. I took this picture at around 3:00 p.m. before I went out of the house. Here are the weather conditions at that time just to give you an idea of what it was like. (This is a screen shot of our weather channel.)
Temperature 0 degrees Celsius Wind North 20 gusting 35
Humidity 96% Rain/Snow
Visibility 300 meters
Windchill minus 5 (This means that it feels like minus 5 although is only 0 because of the wind.) It was cold but this is still mild temperature considering of what lies ahead. As we were walking home, my 11-year old niece was asking me why the snow turns to water when it drops on the ground. Well, it’s because the temperature went up to plus 1 C, I told her. The snow melted. And we all know that water freezes at 0 degrees. That’s another Science lesson for you guys. But of course you already know that.
