RECORD-BREAKING amounts of snow have fallen across Weston this week.

RECORD-BREAKING amounts of snow have fallen across Weston this week.

Bleadon Hill resident Chris Cudlipp, a keen horticulturalist and weather watcher, says 12cm of snow fell yesterday (Wed).

Last year, only 7cm of snow fell on February 6, and that was the deepest it got.

Temperatures have also been plummeting and thermometers have not risen above freezing in 2010.

Last night it was a chilly minus 8.5 degrees centigrade - narrowly missing last year's lowest temperature of minus 9 degrees centigrade.

Chris said: "We must remember that the birds suffer a lot at this time of year so it is important to put out fresh water.

"A constant water supply is more important than food - as all their usual sources are now frozen.
