A couple of weeks ago I talked about snow and sea ice cover. I said it was starting to build rapidly. If you look at the two images the one from the 6th October and 20th. You can see how the area of snow cover has moved Westwards over Russia, Scandinavia and look how much of North America is now covered with snow and Iceland The sea ice area has grown too. I wonder how long it will be before we will see eastern side of Europe will have snow cover. It’s still to early to say if this will have any impact on the UK winter but I will continue to watch this.
