The ’S’ word

DMI says snow could arrive as early as next week

The latest forecast for the month from weather service DMI says that snow could be in the offing as early as next week and that precipitation in early December is even more likely to be white.

“Day time temperatures will fall to 5 degrees or less next week, so any precipitation could be in the form of snow or sleet,” reads the latest prognosis from DMI.

The weather service doubts any white stuff will fall this week, as temperatures remain 1-3 degrees above normal, although some early morning frost may begin to appear.

A white Christmas?
When December gets under way, the chance for snow will be even greater.

“Precipitation and the chance for snow will increase,” reads the latest from DMI.
