February, this year, is the month of the yo-yo snow pattern. It gets cold one day which leads to snowflakes that eventually settle. Sometimes this is followed by frost other days it just remains cold … the snow then eventually melts either with the aid of a little rainfall or from the warmth of a small amount of sunshine. The whole process then begins all over again. So far in the Midlands area this year it has snowed a total of 22 days!
