    Lol I fear he has spent to much time in the MT 

    Get into rehab Ravelin ure in danger of turning native 

    No chance, just a little mid winter model fatigue, combined with it being the crappiest time of year (dark evenings, no holidays imminent, weather disappointing etc). Compared to most in the MT I've got my head screwed on and ain't going to overreact to every little change on every model run. 

    I think I need a little fresh air therapy tomorrow ie a little walk.

    We haven't seen a blizzard like this for a few years! Can't walk outside, it's blinding.

    Whole family has had fun with pup today who picked up a snowball on her name tag proof of freezing temperature.  Mrs Northernlights took these photos      Clear skies now and -0.8c Quite the Snow Dog!

    Still piling up. About to don my ski goggles and head out for a wee wander.

    Yeah I was trying to figure out where they were going! Looks like somewhere out your way might get some showers after all from them...

    Typically after I posted that, the winds seem to have switched to a more westerly direction keeping the precipitation out to the north! I should really learn.

    I can empathise with all the above and throw in eating like a rabbit all week with the standard healthy eating January and I feel exactly the same....may go for a drive tomorrow in search of a snow covered Hill for sledging

    I've been the opposite, eating a whole load of junk this week and I need to stop. I also need to get back to doing more exercise as i've got lazy in the last year and it used to be my way of coping with sitting in an office all week, which at the moment is driving me nuts. 

    -2.3C outside so at least if it doesn't snow tonight it's going to be frosty.

    Dropped to -3.3 earlier in the evening, rose back up to -2.2 and is now dropping again - currently down to -2.7

    Avg sitting at 0.2C I don't think it's going to drop to 0 before midnight, so we'll finish the day with an average above 0 (just)

    Nice morning and currently -1c. Looking forward to the mild and rain that's on it's way!

    Another entirely forgettable 'cold spell'!

    Clear start, temp around -2c. Planning on a long walk later to make the most of the wintry landscape while it's still here!

    I think for the likes of HC and myself this has certainly been a notable cold snap by virtue of us experiencing snowfalls after a long wait. However, going back to my predictions of earlier in the week I would agree that for many it's been a disappointment. I certainly expected snowfall to be more widespread and significant, whereas it's been very hit and miss.

    The only downside for me was that I totally missed the snow falling and accumulating yesterday morning so that's next on my wish list!

    A bit of a shower has just passed through so we have a nice fluffy covering again... Spect that'll be about it though. Traffic cameras are looking pretty wintry across the Highlands - now where's a gritter when you need one? Aaah, there they are...

    Morning Kilties! Light cloud here with patches of blue sky, temp a whopping 4.5c! I guess that's the end of the cold spell then, not that it amounted to much up here! Possibility that we may get another next weekend, but I'll leave the predictions to the experts!

    Flying back to the UK tonight, weather warnings in place for snow and ice for most of Scotland. Should be an interesting drive from Newcastle up through the borders and east coast. By pure luck I remembered to stick on the winter tyres, the X5 is lethal without them.
