MWIS Outlook:

PLANNING OUTLOOK

All mountain areas of Britain from Thursday 24th January 2019

Cold conditions are expected to prevail across the mountains over the next week or fortnight - perhaps longer. Mountain temperatures will frequently be sub-freezing, often to lower slopes in Scotland. Wind speeds very varied day-to-day, at times up to gale force with severe chill factor. Over the next 5 days or so, winds will be mostly from the west or northwest, allowing briefly less cold air to affect England & Wales in particular. Whilst there is some uncertainty, indications into next week favour a cyclonic situation, with areas of precipitation circling around a broad area of low pressure, with scope for locally substantial snowfalls on the mountains. A northeasterly flow may well emerge for a few days.

Just a covering here but a gorgeous winter morning. Cauldest night of the winter so far at -8.0C. Currently, -7.8C/-9C and clear. 

That's my winter weather preference - sunny and crisp mornings (with deep snow confined to the hills for scenic value).

Edit: -7C at the mo.

A couple of flakes lying on the ice of frozen puddles overnight with a minimum of -2c.In spite of this the ground is iron hard. Was wondering if the dryness of the ground was helping it to cool faster? Anyhow its a fabulous base for snow to fall onto.

The bulbs will be going into suspended animation now and a lot of germinating weed seeds on dug areas of the garden look pretty unhealthy.

Fabulous morning with blue  sunny skies.

Beautiful here too at minus 4. Hungry big fat pigeons and doves in the back garden arguing with the jackdaws.

Nothing major but the Euro4 and meto forecasts going for more snow showers this evening for the west. I missed yesterday's fun but sounded like a decent event.

Coldest day of the year (and probably previous night).

Car was reading -5c at 1am when i got home. Neighbour said it was -6c at 06:30. 

Got up to 0c before freezing fog engulfed us.

About 1600 the snow came on, leaving a wee covering. Currently -1.5c. 

We do well out of any westerly component, always going to be winners and losers. 

First lying snow of the winter here on the western fringe of Dumfries

Not amazing but i’ll take it!

It had a more alpine feel today, what with very cold drive to Loch Achray and then t-shirt weather by 11am......albeit still subzero. Just awesome 🙂

It's up on Ben Venue in the Trossachs. More snow up above 600m than I was expecting tbh, so trailbreaking was periodically horrendous......but of course, wonderful at the same time 😉
