Looks like PROPER winter up there. The only time I've been up Fyrish was on a Mothers' Day I think, with blue skies and sunshine and it was utterly utterly mobbed. I had no idea it was so popular locally ? Beautiful spot.

Got down to -6c briefly last night around midnight but had risen to -1c just an hour later!!! Currently 1c with what I expect to be rain pushing it. Could be quite icy as that falls on a very cold ground!

Not a memorable cold spell by any means but I'll take some cracking low temps, frost's and a wee covering of snow again and again over what we have to look forward to this week - bit of rain and a lot milder ?

I'm not disliking the GFS 18 to be honest... The zonality is quite cold in the long run, especially for us. Plenty of snow opportunities there. Definitely a better run overall compared to GFS 12

Don't bother with the normal GFS 00z. Stinker.

In fact, let's pretend none of the 00z runs exist...

Having said that some of them may not be too bad for the northern half of Scotland especially at altitude.

It's been a frustrating winter so far. I was really looking forward to it with the back ground signals and some of the long range models indicating an interesting winter but we just don't seem to have had the breaks. Plenty of time yet (and the photo attached is from April last year) but it would have been great to have had a severe cold spell in the depths of winter for a change.

Aye very popular Ben, also very busy yesterday but got to meet lots of very happy dogs in the process which is always good. Very much winter, snow piling up in some interesting fashions. Fife looking great btw ?

Wind picking up a bitty here, some fleeting wee snow bits blowing about occasionally but nothing of note

i despise snow to rain though unless you get a lot of hours of it that allows play and sledging before the turn.

Snowing here. Mr Snowidea off doing Falkirk ultra-marathon - fool. I'm sitting toasty inside with the kids hoping we might get some snow fun before it all goes again. 

Edit - looks like rain now ?

Didn't last long, dry again now with a thinning front. If nothing else we'll escape the worst of the potential rain when it arrives. Temp still 1c.
