What a difference three weeks makes! Burnham swaps snow for Spring

Three weeks ago, Burnham's seafront was covered was almost empty of people after a dusting of snow but, in stark contrast, this weekend walkers enjoyed balmy Spring sunshine in their T-shirts.

Temperatures in Burnham reached 13°C on Sunday (February 26th), bringing traders in the town centre an early Spring boost with an influx of visitors.

The mild conditions are almost double the average temperatures for the time of year.

By contrast, Burnham saw snowfall on February 4th, as we featured here, and temperatures fell to -7°C on February 11th.

Forecasters are predicting further mild conditions for Burnham this week, despite cloudier weather and drizzle on Monday. Maximum temperatures will be 13°C.
