I think it was by-tor who said we'd sell our grandmothers for a flake of snow.

 

What would you give to see a Met-O red weather warning for snow for your area which actually panned out as forecast? How many of your children would you sacrifice to the snow gods? How quickly would your wife/husband/soul be sold to the devil? I think 2 out of 3 of my kids and about 0.01 seconds to sell the wife :D

I'd tie my wife to the lampost outside, in a King Kong style sacrifice to the snow gods.

Nice cool fresh day after overnight rain. Cut house grasses this afternoon hopefully for the last time this year.Shifted cows and calves to a fresh field of grass yesterday quite exceptional. New grass under barley stubble is around a foot high now after the warm autumn. At least sheep will be able to dig down to it easily when the foot of snow arrives in December. Currently breezy and 7.8c.

Ah the A7. Scenery-wise a lovely drive, but a road clearly not built by the Romans... Been spiced up in recent times by coatings of mud associated with the Borders railway construction. Hopefully the railway - which is well advanced now - will reduce the commuter traffic where many of the overtaking round bends etc folk come from. Thank god the A68 is my route to work; it's a three lane motorway by comparison.

 

Chill in the air tonight. Down to 4.8 °C now and condensation building. Possible frost by the morn...

Preliminary winter forecast up here:

https://forum.netweather.tv/blog/237/entry-4837-preliminary-winter-forecast-201415-return-to-cold/

Still early days yet and far from set in stone but I think you'll like it...

 

Like it? No I love it! Of course what that means is that if you get it completely wrong we'll be out to lynch you come March.

 

Heads off to put the de-icer, snow shovel and container of grit back in the car. Check condition of skis....

One of the best forecasts I've ever read, really know what your talking about!! Very well done. Hopefully it is a winter to remember, I need to experience it in my own town not in Canada or Russia! :cold:  :cold:

Miserable dark  November day here today with sharp showers coming in off the Firth on a fresh NNE wind at 7c a very rare occurence last winter so already it feels more wintry than this time last year. Last autumn/winter we had nothing but southerly winds.

I was just going to say, I can't remember the last time the rain battered against my north facing kitchen window!

Well from the BBC forecast this morning, I was expecting some sharp showers coming down from the north. Instead its been lovely and sunny here in Alloa, not wall to wall, but lovely nonetheless

It's amazing what a change of wind direction does. Front planked overhead and wind from the NNE means heavy rain for us. Wish it was snow.

 

October turned out the third wettest in the last hundred or so years in Scotland and the 16th warmest in terms of mean temp. 2014 still on course to be one of the warmest on record.

Oh, I spot the first ramp of the winter! :laugh:  Hopefully there will be many more! It was lovely up here yesterday, we even saw blue sky at least twice! Frosty night forecast for the fireworks. 4c here with light cloud.

Cool start to the day here, around 3C, but no frost. If the forecast is correct the current sheet of cloud should disappear to leave us with a clear and calm evening. Perfect for the fireworks display in the village (strangely, I can't  remember a 5th Nov fireworks display I've attended ever being hampered by the weather).
