Urban myth: it’s too cold to snow
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.
How many times have you been told “it won’t snow, it’s too cold”? Hundreds I expect but has it ever occurred to you how it manages to snow in Antarctica where the temperature never goes above freezing point, even at the coast?
There is only one temperature where it is too cold to snow and that’s -237°C, the temperature at which atoms freeze. The colder it gets the less likely it is to snow but it can snow, theoretically, at as high as +8ºC.
Too cold to snow?
