There’s a snowsquall warning around here, so I bundled up before heading out for my easy 5K after work.
A snowsquall is a sudden moderately heavy snow fall with blowing snow and strong, gusty surface winds. It is often referred to as a whiteout and is similar to a blizzard but is localized in time or in space and snow accumulations may or may not be significant.
No sign of snow (yet) but the wind was out in full force! I found myself running against 60+km/h winds and it felt like I was hardly moving at times. I’m definitely not a fan of the wind (is anyone??), especially when it carries a chill to the tune of -3oC (26F). I think I’ve earned myself a hot chocolate.
You just never know what you’re gonna get this time of year! There’s a forecast of snow AND rain overnight, so who knows what tomorrow night’s run will bring.
