Monday morning weather

February 28, 2011 @ 08:23 By: gordon Category: Weather

The Franktown weather radar is quite colourful this morning. This “colour” has led to the cancellation of school buses and snow covered roads, so far, and the prospect of freezing rain and pellets later today, according to the aviation forecast: XFT radar - 20110228 0740

      The view out my office window right now is quite impressive. It’s snowing heavily and the vis has dropped to about 500m, which is similar to what they’re seeing out at the airport:
