    You forgot December Dreich. Was it my immagination or did we have two months with exactly the same weather? I would settle for a bit of blue sky and sun now. I off to Tignes 22nd Feb weeks ski trip...I just want to see some blue sky.

    Well yeah but… December is dreich sometimes. January is usually a bit more dependable. Y'know? December might go one way or the other, you never can be sure of a December… but January… well, normally you can trust January to be a bit wintry at least some of the time…

    Pretty crap up here too. Slightly sleety rain at little altitude is maybe a plus for some hardy folks who don't mind a gale with their ppn.

    Well my earlier hopes of seeing the sun have been dashed as the cloud has rolled back in at it's just started raining lightly again.

     

    Looking at the weather data for Dyce (http://www.weathercast.co.uk/world-weather/weather-stations/obsid/3091.html) for the last 6 days for sunshine duration and we have the following entries...

     

    21.01.2014 13:00:00 12 mins

    23.01.2014 15:00:00 12 mins

    24.01.2014 11:00:00  6 mins

     

    That's it! A whole 30 minutes of sunshine in the last 6 days, on the normally brighter East Coast of Scotland too! It's no wonder we're all getting a little depressed. In fact give it another few minutes and that first entry will be gone from the total and it'll drop to an even more miserly 18 minutes.

    I'm mowing my lawn again today.

     

    I hope you are joking, my lawnmower would sink. In fact I'm scared to even let the dog out onto the back lawn for a pee without her being attached to a safety line just in case. Posted Image

    Indeed Ravelin,its a case of the Eternal Autumn this year....Our local records show that the last 24 hour dry day was 16 th December....even then im not sure the station was working that day!!Scarily the models dont show much in the way of dry weather coming up

    Check this out to illustrate the non descript winter:

    Polmont Averages

    Novemmber - 5.6c

    December - 6.9c

    January - 5.3c

    Coldest temp -4c 22nd November

    I can honestly never remember getting from November to end of Jan without one day of actual lying snow. Just incredible.

    UKMO at +72 is poised for a big snow event on Friday - just look at those uppers:

    Posted ImagePosted Image

     

    Likely to be a few showers around for eastern areas on Wednesday night into Thursday morning as well:

    Posted ImagePosted Image

     

    By Friday the less cold uppers push in from the south but the flow is just about southerly enough at surface level for a decent breakdown snowfall:

    If the timing's right it could be quite decent, especially with colder uppers coming back in at us from the west behind the front:

    Evening guys, I'm driving up to Aviemore this Saturday so I'll be following the Scottish weather very closely - Plenty more snow to come and the end of the week looks very interesting as a deep Atlantic low pushes in mixing with some colder air, possible blizzard conditions. Got my winter tyres fitted! Posted Image

     

    Hopefully the Cairngorms railway & snow sports will be open, not looking to promising ATM as they've been deluged with snow and unable to operate. I really need a snow fix!

    [edit] - Is Nathan Rao really Powell in disguise ?  With a zero % strike rate, you'd think he'd be looking for better sources...today it's 8inches of snow and -10 deg freeze.
