Light snow showers with poor visibility

5th March 2019

Today was much calmer but the visibility was generally quite poor, particularly in the morning. Winds were moderate East-South Easterly and light snow fell above 550 metres. New snow accumulations were not that significant the freezing level slowly rose during the day to around 700 metre. It became brighter in the afternoon.
