What a difference a day makes!

A dramatic change in the weather was observed at the ECN Snowdon in early April

As the photographs below show, the weather at our site on Snowdon took a dramatic turn for the worse between the 4th and 5th April 2012!

Challenging conditions made access to the site for routine monitoring and equipment difficult.
