    Models have been consistently showing a low jet stream in the long term. If that does indeed develop, then we could see a return to more wintry conditions with snow and sleet down to low levels at times, but mainly in western areas. Should the jet stream stay high, then no snow and lots of rain for the whole of Scotland. An initial south-westerly mild and wet spell as the HP collapses, followed by cooler W-NW currents (with chances for snow) seems to be the most likely scenario at the moment. Personally I can't see any beasts from the east this year, but winter may not be over

    Yesterday was an amazing day in Edinburgh, felt like late spring. Today seems very different, the sky is completely grey and the wind is howling :(

    Models are showing significant cloud cover for both Saturday and Sunday, with some drizzle moving in Saturday night. What a shame, was looking like an amazing weekend until a couple of days ago

    The howling outside seems to be easing off a little. Clear skies and it has been a mostly sunny afternoon too. Not bad considering what the forecasts were expecting. More wind tomorrow, more wind Friday and more wind Saturday. GFS P showing gusts up to 60km/h. Maybe Sunday-Wednesday the wind will calm down? By the end of next week a return to atlantic westerlies looks likely, so instead of being blown off our feet from the south we'll get blown off our feet from the west. If only we could get blown off our feet from the east...

    It was supposed to rain all morning, but instead we've had long spells of sunshine and only the odd spit. Very windy though. @Kirkcaldy Weather I agree, GIFs would be much better 😄 I'm curious about what they'd write if there was an actual storm out there

    Instead of writing "noticeably gusty", they should just call it "fine Scottish weather".

    Most of the showers died out before getting here this morning, it drizzled for about 10 minutes. And finally the wind has calmed down! More rain moving in from the west now, but looking very intermittent for now. Thursday and Friday should stay dry before further rain moves in over the weekend

    More heavy rain moving into Edinburgh. The sky is black to the west. Then heavy rain again tonight and for most of tomorrow.

    I don't think record temperatures will be reached. GFS and ECMWF have agreed on uppers peaking at "only" around +9/+10. Inversions will be present, there will be clouds around and a moderate breeze should keep temperatures around 13-14C.

    They came across Edinburgh. I got woken up by the lashing rain at about 3:30AM this morning, then further very heavy showers at around 16:00. More rain this evening with prolonged showers moving in from the west. Weather's been really crappy recently, and Wednesday looks very wet indeed. Was raining yesterday too, and the winds are relentless

    The strong winds are becoming tiresome, it's been windy for over a week now. Would be nice to go out without being blown away. Tomorrow is looking even windier, possibly gales for a time. From Thursday temperatures should gradually rise and winds drop. But it depends on how far west the HP can push, we could just end up with strong southern currents bringing gales and showers.
  12. I know this is a hunt for cold, but these charts are still quite exciting as they are definitely unusual for February. Still a lot more interesting than our usual flat zonality.
  13. Wow, what ground temperatures would this produce? Surely record breaking for some areas. I see a bit of +12 up in the north of Scotland, that would be above average even in July! Will February 2019 go down as one of the mildest in history? PS. I wouldn't mind being on the Bulgarian black sea coast instead 😂

    15C in Edinburgh now, really warm. Quite windy, but it's a very mild wind. Warm sunshine too. Feels like a good day in April or even may, let alone February!

    I agree, that's quite a temperature inversion we've had overnight. Uppers are around +8 this morning for Edinburgh and outside it is 0C. The horrible weather is very likely to return next week, it's a bad outlook for Scotland. The high pressure just isn't convincing enough and I think the Atlantic will attempt to flatten it, resulting in very wet and strong south-southwesterly currents for Scotland. GFS P still going for a drier outlook, ecmwf too (with some rain only on Wednesday)
