Snow squalls will continue today.

This is a warning that snowsqualls are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions. Listen for updated statements. And with this warning comes good news about toasty warm ski chalets and as promised for all you PhD Snow candidates, more snow lessons.

Definition: Snow is a type of precipitation in the form of crystalline water ice, consisting of a multitude of snowflakes that fall from clouds. The process of precipitation is called snowfall.
Ice, snow and climate change are closely linked. The Global Outlook for Ice and Snow investigates those linkages. It also presents information on the trends in ice and snow, the outlook for this century and beyond and the consequences to ecosystems and human well-being of these changes. It covers all parts of the cryosphere (the world of ice): snow, land ice, sea ice, river and lake ice, and frozen ground. The Global Outlook for Ice and Snow was written by more than 70 scientists from around the world.
Signing off for today from the Capitol of The Cryosphere. (the world of ice)

I'm so jealous that you have snow! Yes, i hated cleaning the car off at 6am and shoveling the car out only to to discover that someone has stolen my clean spot when i get home from work... But i miss snow. I love winter. :)

Thanks for visiting on my BAtW day! I'm sure your daughter will enjoy herself here. Cairo is a city where you never run out of things to see and do! :)
