When the weather sensor’s broken, send a cop to measure snow levels

HOW do you tell how much snow there is in Cyprus? It turns out guessing will have to do.

Although police bulletins on the latest weather conditions have been coming with a line on how much snow has been piling up in the Troodos area, the information has not been coming from scientific sources.

The met office has an automated machine in Troodos that gives temperature and humidity readings, but the sensor is broken.  But never fear, it turns out that a police officer stationed in Troodos has been doing the sensor’s job instead.

Met officer Panayiotis Mouskos was asked by public broadcaster CyBC on Friday to confirm that a report by daily Politis got it right. Are official snow levels in Cyprus a ‘guesstimate’?

“I don’t know how [the police officer] estimates levels but I’m sure they must have something to take accurate measurements,” Mouskos said. “Something must have happened with the machine… the part measuring snow levels,” he said. “But it doesn’t matter very much whether it’s 80cm or 78cm or 82cm,” he said. Snow levels in the Troodos peak were 80cm yesterday, the met office said… at least that’s what they think.
