Glenmore (next to Loch Morlich) have a camping/caravan site - walked past it a few times.

Very snowy up there currently. 

 

 

 

Thanks mr frost, unfortunately glamming pods I’m looking for as it’s a bit cold for the tent or the 4x4 😔 it’ll most likely be mid next week I go.... knowing my luck, probably as a mild front comes in 😂😂

After a promising start to the morning with a couple of cm of snow falling it has just about melted away already. Not sure what will happen later.

The caravan site at Cannich has/had Glamping pods and I'm sure it's open all year. Should be cold there too. 

As expected from a westerly flow, nothing more at home overnight other than a frost. It was around -2/3C at 7:30am and pretty much below freezing all the way to Fochabers. 

Nice to see others getting in on the snow action. Been anything 'doon sooth' yet, as I don't dare check the banter thread just in case?

Highly unlikely (unless you count south as Cumbria/NE and i’d suspect it would be the usual suspects ie 200/300m asl).

 

Certainly nothing here in Dumfries, just icy from that main band. Not even a flake of snow and 3.5c.

Showers packing in behind and I believe those are snow (Friends say it’s snowing out west ie A75 but struggling to lie).

 

In such a marginal set up I believe the Irradiance of the sun is a factpr at play here. Hopefully come 1500hrs onwards we get some precipitation as that’ll co-incide with a dip in temperatures and therefore less marginal.

 

Meant to say, glorious day yesterday heading down the beeftub (A701 Edi - Dumfries). 

Have to say through my car windows I was awffy warm and it had me looking forward to Spring/Summer.

Either we get HLB in Feb or I’d prefer just a predominantly sunny and dry warm-up. These 850s of -5/-6 are depressing.

Drip, drip, drip during daylight

Oh and when I inadvertently startled that pair of red grouse....clearly I'd interrupted one of them giving the other a lesson on what the jetstream is doing.

Heavy snow when I left the house this morning down to around 100 metres. 

Now bright and sunny at work in Greenock. Not really the day I was expecting. Not seeing too much on the radar for south of the central belt. The current big blob I think will be north of here. 

Not quite the day I was expecting as I thought much more frequent showers.

Current blob looks like it will affect anywhere from Ayr northwards going by the radar sequence. Let's hope it maintains its Intensity and that it is of snow.

Looks like the blob to my west is breaking up and will miss me. Ayrshire looks like getting a good dumping, if it falls as snow that is.

Overcast and calm for most of the day, skies clearing in the last hour or so - its going to be a cold one tonight for sure, already -1C outside.

No top up of snow since Sunday night but everything still looking nice and wintry, even though snow now mainly gone off the trees at this altitude.

Fine winters day here too with blue skies and  colourful snow shower clouds all around the horizon especially to the north and west.We had the merest of dustings overnight and -3c first thing this morning. Never got above 0c today so frost digging in. Certainly feels like proper winter now.  Still get the feeling that the seasons are running 4 to 6 weeks behind.

See in the model thread that they are bemoaning the lack of an easterly,well we are approaching the season when east and north winds are at their most frequent and can still pack a punch right up to early May especially up here. We still have another three months or so for disruptive snow and as my mother used to say without any scentific background "As the days lengthen so the cold strengthens."  As for the farm we always plan for a seven month winter for the livestock.

The GB & NI ICON 5 day accumulated precipitation chart looks as if someone has selected the 'invert weather' option. Can we have this in the summer please ?

A wee bit of a dusting here this morning it was quite wet slippy snaw,  even though it couldn't have been any deeper than 1/2" I saw some nugget who managed to loose control of their car in a straight line spin and hit the verge...incredible..!!!

It seems its the US to blame for soaking up the cold -27deg/C in Chicago...that's chilly.

The East Coast is not doing well this winter the wind keeps blowing from all the wrong directions for us to get proper snaw and the Beeb weather said is to get mild again for a bit...what's going on.

The snow has arrived here on Barra today it's still mainly on the hills with a light dusting at lowe levels. These are photos I took this afternoon. In the last hour, it's started snowing again.

 

Awesome ! Last time I was in Castlebay was a week before the indy ref while on a cycle tour. Heaval is a great wee hill.

A tiny wee blip on the radar gave a fair good covering at my location here in Bargaddie to the east of Glasgow. Was very surprised at how much snow fell and landed too, has given me some hope for later tonight and into the morning!
