Laura's weather blog: A tale of two halves

Did you know, it’s statistically more likely to snow at Easter than Christmas?!

Thankfully there isn’t a whiff of any this Easter, although this last week has been lovely with many of us enjoying warm sunshine by day, the price we paid were chilly nights.

The sun’s been deceptively strong in recent days thanks to higher than normal UV levels; this is due to a lower level of Ozone in the upper atmosphere.

It’s Ozone that absorbs UV rays, meaning more UV rays have been reaching us and levels have been as high as they would be in June.
