We've just experienced a very rare weather event for December, a thunderstorm! The temperature has been just below freezing for two weeks, but today has risen to 10°C above and raining. By tomorrow it will be back down to freezing where it will stay next week.
This is what November was like, not a lot of snow, but it stayed for most of the month, repeated days of dull weather and light snow flurries.
But this was the view this morning, the snow rapidly disappearing. If it weren't dark out at the moment, I expect a photo would show no snow at all. The sudden rise in temperature and the warm air it brought created perfect conditions for a winter thunderstorm.
It is 7:30 here and we just had a burst of rain but no thunderstorm - at least not yet! It was a lovely day though!ReplyDelete
Remember one of those many years ago.ReplyDelete
They can actually do more damage then the ones in the summer.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Thunderstorms in the winter are pretty weird.ReplyDelete
My sister in Hanover said they had 12C and a thunderstorm this morning so your post didn't surprise me today. how weird, such is Ontario weather. ;)ReplyDelete
It happens very occasionally here when cold air from the Arctic meets our prevailing south-westerlies. Nothing but a few slight frosts so far this winter in this part of the world.ReplyDelete
That was a r.are weather event alright and it rumbled over top us on it's way to rumble over top youReplyDelete
Snow's gone down here too, unusual weather events are now normal.ReplyDelete
We had some rain yesterday, but freezing rain before that, so it coated the snow on the ground. Today it's snowing again. Excellent shots!ReplyDelete
We had one of those rare thunder storms the other night too.ReplyDelete
It was a rather harsh week for weather events in the area of Missouri where we previously lived. Several small tornadoes leaving one person dead.ReplyDelete
