As you will all be aware, we have now just entered into the first month of the winter of 2023/24 and also, the final month of 2023 (this year has really flown by yet again, it is astonishing to think about where all of that time goes to (the world of science even has its own theories for that, although such a discussion is beyond the scope of this forum of course)).
So far, this winter has started of on a cold but relatively dry note. What precipitation is falling, is largely in the form of snow in many places, and that can be measured as an equivalent rainfall total although in most cases, you will usually need to wait for that snow to melt before it is actually measured as equivalent rainfall.
Indeed, that may well be the case for quite a while going forward but here in the UK, every winter month will usually always have at least one milder spell within it when everything falls just as rain. At this time of the year, milder weather will usually always mean wetter weather and so, this thread will no doubt become much busier once that happens.
Regardless of how this month pans out though, this is the place to report those all important rainfall totals for this month in your area as they happen.
