Scotland/Alba Weather Discussion 2019

Eighth air frost at -3.6°C. I think because it's been cool or cold now for a while, it's really got into the bricks - heating takes a while to have an effect!

And if you stand on the right hand side of the car with the wipers set on auto you get a nice cold shower as well which I found out last week ?

sorry for being of topic has anyone got all season tyres fitted to their car and if so any good recommendations size 245 45 19 T.I.A

Ive got a full set of Verdstren Quadrac (or something that sounds like that) on my ASX. Got them before last winter and they seem fine. We actually had a few decent snow events here last winter and I never had a problem on the roads even in some pretty dodgy condition. My ASX is  4WD version though, which probably helped.

On a snowy day,  3 months after passing their test one of my children, became the first 2wd car to get into a ski resort car park,  thanks to Goodyear Vector 4 Season tyres,  with no fuss no drama, having never driven in snow before. 

I personally can vouch for Nokian Weatherproofs, but I think you would be amazed by the performance of any modern premium all weather tyre in snow.

Took doggie for a (short) bracing walk in Glen Clova this afternoon. On the way home I noticed from a distance these fingers of low cloud creeping over the Cairn o Mount area.

Raining here at 3C 

what’s the forecast for this evening? 

The Euro4 looks mostly dry with a widespread frost but the radar says different with widespread light showers, possibly snow?

I really do need to get a new weather station at some point, hate not at least being able to see the outside temperature. Anyway I've just been out to replenish the wood basket as the wood burner has been going since early afternoon. Doesn't feel too chilly out as it's calm, but things noticeably beginning to ice up gain under the clear skies. Earlier snow shower was short lived and didn't settle. One that came later was sleety at best.

I need one but I am thinking just a thermometer would do fine, I had a quick look but couldn't see any stand-alone efforts.

No hangover here, but an equally cold looking (not ventured out) start to the day with a hard frost giving everything a coat of white. 

Oh, and it's currently snowing heavily on the ski slopes at Schladming, Austria where we're heading for Xmas. Hopefully it'll not only last, but keep snowing so my webcam obsession can be enjoyed. 

I like Schladming. The only place I have gone straight to skiing from an all nighter in the pub. Can be pretty cold and being North facing gets icy if no recent snow but they have about the best pisters in the world. Great red runs for blasting down. 
Feeling cold here today with a light shower or two in the late afternoon. 4C.

edit. Also well worth a wee trip to Haus for a day or two.

Had a quick look, not sure if any of these are of use.

Coldest night of the autumn last night with a minimum of -4.5c.

Stunning start to the day with plenty of hoar frost on the ground, calm conditions and even a bit of hazy sunshine - cracking day to be outside, though ground conditions not the best for the kids football session going by the number of bloody knees by the end of the game!

More in the way of cloud in the afternoon and a few light showers of rain, max of 4c.

Temperature now -1.1c and ground conditions lethally icy thanks to those afternoon rain showers.

-3.3c at 7.30 this morning. Temp now beginning to creep up. We've had a few dustings of snow on the Cuillin this week, nothing to lower levels. Depending which forecast I look at I'm due for a snowfall overnight. Nah! More than likely to be sleet! Off out for a walk with fried and her doggie later. Too good a day to stay indoors! ??

The day started with a frost here but its quickly disappeared in all but deep shade now. Hardly a cloud in the sky and no wind so feeling nice in the sun. Unless we're due some high winds soon, to neatly gather them all up for me, I might have to get the rake out to sort out my leaf 'problem'.

When it was snowing here yesterday I went into my 12yr old sons room and pointed out of the window. He reluctantly dragged himself away from the Xbox to glance out the window and say.. "so what, it was snowing yesterday". ?

As far as I'm concerned now, I HAVE NO SON.
