  1. Heavy snow this morning, don’t think it had stopped much at all through the night, pic from first thing 28cms cover. Showers through first part of the day. After a bit of a dig, we followed the blue skies down to Laggan Tired the dog out on the way home up above Aviemore, snow knee deep in parts. Dying light but great conditions. Hope people get a snow fix tomo morning

  2. Glencoe: Some from the car snaps on the way through: We stopped in one of the car parks and went for a walk, up to the side of the Three Sisters. The snow was a variety of one inch deep to several feet deep. Absolutely glorious conditions for a walk: And then out the other side:

  3. Still digging here. Well over the top of my wellies in places and I'm running out of dry socks. Still flurries now and again..

  4. ECM clusters - more of the same generally. Confirmation of how unsettled this weekend is with those very tight lines - I think we've been lucky not to have had it worse, actually, one of those late developing lows could easily have occured nearer us. Later next week - well there's the promise the Atlantic ridge will nudge a little higher, but this could easily flatten back to square one: Further out to the end of the month - with heights finally rising further west and a strong signal for a Scandi trough, you never know, a northerly might just squeeze in:

  5. Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C and crazy icy on the road.

  6. @Kirkcaldy Weather the Euro4 should get a 400 year jail term for how useless it has become at predicting snow. Road trip today, perfect conditions at Glencoe: Car pics too: I'll be back later to bore you all to death by holiday snap ?

  8. Finally managed out of doors this afternoon but didn't want to chance the Leadhills or Wanlockhead areas given the reports of vehicles stuck on the Dalveen Pass and deep snow. Had a wander around the Strathaven area, where there was a lot of melting and running water! Things were starting to look pretty green, particularly on south-facing areas . Later on, a heavy snow shower came on and things looked a bit more wintry. Just a wee bit short of the depths of snow found in Highland Perthshire and Braemar, mind you...

  10. There was a wee dusting of snow first thing this morning but it quickly disappeared. Decided to take a short 10 min drive from my house to Whitelee wind farm which stands around 300m. Not a massive amount of snow but still was a nice wee walk.

  12. A slight covering at home and some slushy deposits here and there on way to work. Then the sleet changed to snow in the space of a few hundred metres. This was a very localised section of the B788.

  14. -3c start to the day no wind so although it remained frosty in the shade all day it was pleasant to work outside. Very wet ground has frozen solid to about 3 inches. A bit late getting a photo across the Firth but I think you can just see the pink tipped snow showers to the NE out in the North Sea and in the middle left the snow covered hills near Wick. Frosty this evening again at 0c Another photo showing the hills to the north

  18. @CatchMyDrift the wrf can't get them all right ? and I still think it has handled this recent spell well with areas of showers and didn't just show them all as pure snow like the euro 4 though both models got the widespread lying snow wrong for whatever wetbulbing reason ? @edo @Mr Frost it's when it snows for only the second time in 100 years in Baghdad that's when you know ?

  19. Ah Met Office you sure do love to disappoint...snow at the moment you say...radar now heavy rain and the actual weather outside agrees! ? The hills/mountains across the water look great but snow above 350 meters does not cut it anymore! (It has been the story of Winter 2019/2020) The days I have planned to head up the higher hills this Winter have been non starters due to last minute working, storm force winds or my son having a wee bug or a bad cold! It’s February 13th and I have seen about ten minutes of snowfall at sea level! What a pile of sh*te this Winter has been! (F

  20. The achievement of an Arctic oscillation of +6 has taken 70 odd years to record- So you could say that its a 1:70 event. Tonights ECM goes for a +7 index value in just 9 days time .... Record on top of record if it happens. Thats how special this winter is....

  22. Hi guys. As you brace yourselves for Storm Dennis. I am on the northern side of the Storm System in Reykjavik where we have a red alert for friday from the Icelandic met office for sustained winds of 68mph and gust in excess of this. The upside is that it will be accompanied by sleet and snow.

  24. It's been another nice sunny day here in Dunoon we didn't get any snow overnight or this morning though its been mainly dry all day. Last night the temperature got down to 0.0c our coldest night since the 19th of January.

  25. -6C in Halkirk and all white too, must have copped a last late snow shower overnight. Really wintry this morning. Animals static still, drivers crawling around (better than speeding I guess) and ditches with thick ice.

  26. The joys of pattern matching....some good, some bad, some in the middle.....so basically, this summer could be anything ? We could actually do with an extended dry spell of weather now - it's been very wet since Autumn in a large number of areas in the UK.

  30. A lot has been said about the vortex this year and how it's buggered up our winter, we'll infact its messed up the E/SE section of the states, and a good chunk of Europe to! Never a good sign when the vortex sits over Greenland, as we all know, it serves to promote lower pressure in the North Atlantic and a milder Wstly flow across towards Europe. I mentioned a few weeks ago how the vortex was running at literally record speed, some of the coldest temps in 50 years circulating within it, and 600km winds a circulating... Pretty amazing really... What I do think is possible is going on the fact

  31. Feb GloSea5 is out, just one plot tells you all you need to know about the 'winter' legacy, 2m temperature Mar-May: No clear signal on precipitation at all so I won't post the chart. I have to say I'm interested in this from the point of view of summer now, so here 2m temperature and z500 for May-Jul: Maybe hardly surprising that hotter than average is favourite given the recent past, and nothing that suggests some summer nightmare from the heights charts, although obviously they are are means over 3 months and many runs, uncertainty over summer, but not much of a

  32. Masie has updated... 6 days since I last reported.. Has seen changes of (+76K, +50K, -36K, +33K, -122K and finally today +40K) for a net gain of 41K Km2 and an overall total of 14,578K Km2. Masie has it at second best since 2010, and Jaxa is still at 12th lowest in the last 15 years. A small dent in the hopes of achieving greater than 15,000K Km2 (for only the third time since 2010), since the maximum extent is normally around the first weeks of March. Barents has been the biggest loser with -160K km2 loss over the 6days, as winds seem to have disrupted the ice and pu

  33. Guys... Back again after 2 days off due to a minor op. These last 4 days have seen a drop in the sea ice, but snow has finally started to move into Europe. Ice contraction apparently due to the winds (rather than melting) seems to be the reason for the Ice reduction. Last nights report (below) - show ice gains again in all regions except Barents. So I will attempt to give some details of the last few days after Masie this pm later today. MIA

  37. Our Government is currently fighting like ferrets in a sack as it's reshuffle day over here, so are the official opposition for that matter. Anyways, once the spoils of the ministerial red boxes have been divided, they may turn their attention to important matters such as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, but then again, they may not. Who knows with this bunch of idiots. Edit - and I should of added prior to my rant about our political leadership - Absolutely Nick, i think you are spot on about the need for a public information campaign. Hygiene measures, 111 phone

  38. Oh Mark, Zippy it up please!! Meanwhile on the Weather front, Rainbows aside, Dennis still on course for a wild Sunday/Monday: Fortunately, I don't think we'll get down as far as: Mary, Mungo or Midge but possibly Fifi and Hector. Right, I'm really showing my age now.(I know, 5!!). Those Members still wanting to enter my Weather prediction Competition, it's on a separate Thread over on the Lounge Forum. Regards, Tom.

  47. A busy few days for mountain rescue teams - in the Southern Uplands they were rescuing vehicles from snow in the Dalveen Pass, right in the heart of the amber warning area. Motorists stranded in heavy snow thank rescuers WWW.BBC.CO.UK They were among 12 people helped to safety by a mountain rescue team after their vehicles became stuck.
