  1. THere has also been well over a metre of snow in plenty of areas of Switzerland this week – not unheard of, but certainly not an every-year event. A northerly airstream is bringing plenty of moisture and cold temperatures to the northern half of the Swiss and Austrian Alps and it means that higher up on the mountains, snow depths are widely significantly above the long-term average.

    It all shows that a simple change of wind direction from a SW to a NW/N can change temperatures by over 10C.

    Amazing that we are paralysed with fear about changes in temperature of 2C when changes of 10-20C in a week do not seem to wipe out life on earth…..

  2. might be seeing the words” brief warm spell ”
    this spring , rather than -cold snap-
    when the cold is more persisitant than sunshine?

  3. The entire earth has been in a “brief warm spell”. Fortunately for us. Not for much longer I’m afraid. I live in Oklahoma, central Oklahoma. We’re just getting rain. The winter weather is confined to the Northwest (panhandle) of the state.
