Despite the MetO forecast, temperatures failed to rise above 0C here. Cloud has increased through out the day and we now have a light westerly wind.

Real midwinter day starting at -4 c,very low light through thin high cloud and calm. Contractor in muckspreading with an 18 tonne spreader,a job that used to take weeks now down to a few days. When frost lifts will get it ploughed down. Currently 0c so our first ice day of the winter.

Update 200 tonnes of muck spread today as spreader has a weigh cell on it . Apprximately 40 tonnnes left to do . About a third less than usual as this heap is from 2018 when drought reduced straw yield and usage.   A dry autumn that year allowing us to keep  cattle  out  longer

Minimum temperature here reached -2.4c last night my new lowest temperature so far. Today has been slightly warmer than yesterday where the temperature only reached 0.2c in the afternoon while today it reached 2.7c so all the frost and some ice has gone now.

With another clear and cold start it was a very frosty drive to work this morning, -5/6C all the way between Alford and Inverurie. On the way back just before 4pm it was 0C in Inverurie, dropping back to - 2C in Alford and it's surrounds. Going by the still heavy frost in places it's not lifted all day, so likely an ice day for some. 

Now we start the slow climb back up to something more normal for November, but I'd say it's unlikely now for Nov to come in anything other than below average overall for NE Scotland. December and beyond is anyone's guess, especially given the lack of an organised polar vortex, with the strat vortex looking as if it's going to be under strain at worse.

Overnight low of -6.3c, making it the coldest night of the autumn - so much for the Met Office forecast low of -2c 🤣

Sunny to start with but rapidly clouding over, frost lifting in Aberdeen but stayed below freezing here (just, max of -0.2c).

Light winds and back down to -1.9c at the moment, though expect that to rise in the near future.

Met office outlook for here is deeply uninspiring, grey sludge for days on end. 😥

Ice day here with temperatures failing to get above 0°C, very cold overnight and a hard frost which remained throughout the day. :cold:

Here was me thinking the cold would go away but the rain would stay away to the end of the week.....................I look outside the window and it's raining. DO'H! That truly it for this spell of cold hopefully it will be back (sooner rather than later)

Currently 2C.

It's our last full day of the holiday today before heading home tomorrow. We've been very lucky for the 2nd time in six months. Inveruglas has recorded over 2,300mm of rain so far this year but both weeks we've had here have been dry apart from the first nights. In contrast back home in the Borders has had at least 5mm of rain every day since we've been away.

We weren't feeling very energetic today but a walk from Strathyre towards Loch Lubnaig never fails to disappoint. Still some shreds of snow from Sunday night at relatively low levels in the shelter of the trees:

Then we went down to Callander for some lunch. Fergus & Clyde waited patiently outside Greggs just in case anyone was going to drop a bit of sausage roll:

You’ve brought back great memories with this post and photo Catch - have enjoyed your photos and it’s been a real trip down memory lane as know all the places you e visited - thank you!  

Did you go to the Old Bank restaurant for lunch?(feels more like a coffee shop/cafe, but in a good way).  Many a time I’d drive from Fenwick to enjoy the best high tea I’ve ever had anywhere, either side of the border.  Have many pleasant memories of sitting by the roaring log fire eating a huge amount and having all the lovely cakes I couldn’t manage put into a box for the next few days.  Then a waddle walk around the delightful town to ease my conscience. One day I took my daughter there (all visiting family and friends were taken to Callander, whether they wanted to go or not, and she casually said, ‘I think the chimney’s on fire.’  We told the staff then just carried on eating - food was far too nice to mess about with a chimney fire 🙂

I am not that far North of you but we are still dry at -1.1C and I was thinking that I might hang on for an early ice day. There must be a sharp temperature divide somewhere about North Fife / Perth which looks wet on the radar to here where it remains dry and cold.

My coldest day so far too with max of -0.6C. If they counted ice days as being under freezing in daylight hours it would make it but I think temps are due to rise a bit this evening. Light layered cloud here also.
Just finished raking the back lawn which was completely covered by leaves from the back neighbours tree. Annoyingly they trimmed it this Summer but didn't touch the branches overhanging my lawn. At least I can see the grass now.

Its ok. I have left some for them.
Heard reports of freezing rain in parts of Perthshire and still -1C here but dry.

Edit now started raining here and freezing on impact. My two weather stations showing -1 and -0.7C respectively

Ice day! A hard frost all day after an overnight low of -7.0C, the lowest minimum of the autumn/winter so far. Freezing drizzle this evening and still bang on freezing point just now.

Reminding me of the lead in to winter 2012-13 at this stage.

Well, just hung on and still under freezing at midnight at -0.1C. The earliest that I have recorded an ice day at this location. Garden paths very slippery after the light rain this evening.

Maxed out at 2.6C up here today, and last night was the first time we’ve dipped below freezing this season. Only got down to -0.5C though.

Hubby has reported a very icy start here in Falkirk as he slithered down the hill to the train station.

Morning all!

Cheers @Kirkcaldy Weather!

Wet night and morning here...rain is now clearing through and that should be it until Monday. 
Milder temperatures than of late but daytime still below average. (Rising to average through Sunday/Monday/Tuesday)

Miss the freezing/fog/frost already - got used to these scenes in the morning.

I do not think it will be long until the cold weather returns. (I know some of you are still cold at the moment. 🥶)

Mountain forecast stays cold for the foreseeable!

Much better outlook than the crud we had to endure for most of last December - should be seasonal at least and with a snow risk for quite a few of us if it all becomes reality!

Have a good day!

It's frost-free here this morning, grey and misty tho'. The temp is 3C and there's hardly a breath of wind - fairly routine autumn stuff.
