    Let's just start with the money shot - both the ECM and the GFS agree that, as of Wednesday 12pm, the upper air temperatures will be sitting at -14/-15C over most of Scotland, the wind will be pretty

    We had a bit of a struggle to get to the hospital this morning, the bus was 20 mins late and the taxi got fed up waiting and had gone. But we got there and hubby had the op, it's not cancer it's just

    My favourite Percy Sledge track must be "It Can't Be Stopped (Beast from the East)"

    From the other side of the fence, after 30 years of one partner, to keep your sanity and happiness, keep your own spaces, interests, tastes - too close is a disaster.

    Oh I try, believe me I try!     Whenever I feel my sanity being threatened, his space is the bloody shed!    Works a treat!:laugh:

    My sheds are all full of firewood, no cosy little nook with a stash of malts. Helps that me and Ms HC have always had quite different interests. Not completely of course :give_rose:

    Too much information!:D

    You're right tho' - 2 people heading in the same direction, with the same interests,  looking for the same things out of life isn't a good mix. You have to let each other breathe.  My hubby has been a musician for much of our married life which has taken him around the country,  sometimes involving lengthy separations.  Probably why we have lasted so long!:laugh:

    Nice red sunset yesterday.  I wonder if we'll get another tonight?  Red sky at night, the beast is in sight!

    The 12z UKMO is a savage run, 3 days of snow showers across the east then this storm to drift all the snow on Friday:

    I take it Fridays chart would still drive showers into the East of Scotland ??

    would rather have the convective showers rather than the front from the south 

    I would think so. Wind still coming from the East and the 850 temps still look low enough. A lot can and will change before Friday though.

    Aye, there's still a lot of twists and turns on this. It'll be fun finding out where we go from here, best chart watching for a long time.

    I've not seen such a huge mass of such cold air approach from the east in the 20 odd years I've been on the Black Isle. Generally with -8C uppers, we get a dull grey boring easterly, with all the ppn stolen by the Cairngorms. Anyone like to offer insight into whether the strength of cold will improve our chances here, or is it going to be a case of 'wait n see, little boy...'?

    It's a different story if the ppn comes in off the firth on an ENE or NE gale - we get some of our biggest rainfalls like that, and there was one snow event that caught a lot of folk out, some point maybe around 2001. I don't see that happening this coming week.

    COME ON the boys in blue!  Stay calm.

    This is more tense than waiting to see if GFS insists on bringing in mild air this week ? 

    Will be homeless if ??????? win..

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
