Dartmoor Gliding News-Sunday 18th March 2018

Today was a No Fly Day
Although the Met Office predicted lighter winds and clearer skies than originally thought, after a bright start following light snow overnight, it wasn’t long before the wind freshened and, by 1100 (exactly as forecast by the BBC) snow showers started to sweep in from the north-east.  By lunchtime the area was in the grip of persistent snow and low cloud that contrasted sharply with these early morning photos.
