    Much heavier rain than expected this morning so swimming down the fields again. Very windy this afternoon at 10c so must be helping to dry it up now.

    And so the mild dross continues:

    Temperatures for parts of NE Scotland wont fall below 9C over the next 48 hours.

    Bizarre!

    9C in north-eastern Scotland, meanwhile snow is expected at 300m above sea level in southern Italy... What a strange winter

    Dull but dry so far this morning. It was so dark all morning that we  needed lights on in steading to feed /bed  cattle  even at midday. Strong southerly  wind but mild at 12c

    Not just this winter, but future UK winters.

    Climate change.

    This is Scotland chaps.  If you want snow and ice, head north and east - Scandinavia still gets proper winters, although no doubt the old fogeys there grumble like us.

    'When I were a lad, we used to get hunted by packs of wolves on the way to school and had to dig shelters in snow drifts to escape. When the polar bears appeared, we knew we were up lemon creek. Paddles were no use as the ice was too thick to break.'

    Ha ha! Too true! My pals in Vest-Agder are dismayed at their 8C and pishing rain as well ? 

    This is our tenth winter up here at 900ft and it looks like going down as our first without any lying snow this side of the new year ?

    I know this is Scotland, but the current temperatures and outlook are anything but normal - 13-15C in parts of the country. 

    If the high pressure settles over us, we could get some temperature inversions with seasonal temperatures at ground level. I think we will end up sandwiched between high pressure to our south and Atlantic systems tracking to the north (mild, windy and occasionally wet). 

    Also heading east and north wouldn't help either. Most of the European half of Russia has no snow at the moment, Moscow has been experiencing near record breaking temperatures. It was +9 last week there

    I suppose NL is not that unusual to get those sort of temps in this set up, especially if you trace the isobar flow back to deepest NW Africa and this source of air mass carried through your domain. See West coast of Norway close to double positive digits as well.. Still does not seem right for winter and I am sure its not all good for the farming cycle up there.
