It's quite an interesting set-up as the surface wind is going to be north or slightly east of north, unusual for a toppler.

@Hairy Celt and I had this conversation the other day so it'll be interesting to see what happens with it.

When did the Euro4 start doing Scotland charts? They never had this option this time last year, now the UK can be split into Scotland or England:

There are several more options now than previously, nice 🙂

@CatchMyDrift - and everyone else :hi:- looks on the NetWx-MR to be slightly west of north (or at least just drifting west of north) by the time it's cold enough to snow (Sunday middle of the day), and by then the ppn will probably largely be for Sutherland and north-facing slopes. More runs needed! :whistling:

Not cold enough for snow for us unfortunately... We might've been ok had there been a cold spell before it. But after the storm, ground temperatures are going to be quite mild and any snow will be restricted to the hills (I'd say roughly 300m>)

I just wanted to write something suitable about Andy Nisbet but words fail me. Brilliant bloke and climber.

Its all doom and gloom in the cold hunt thread this morning, towels being thrown in and prams and toys are being readied. it does seem that the 1st half of Feb is a bust but we all know just how quick the models can and do flip from mild to cold and we in Scotland still have about 10 weeks of winter left to go so plenty of time. on a side issue im making stuffed braised lambs hearts for tea and was just wondering if any of you kind folk in here have any tips or advice, ive made them plenty of times but interested to hear of others methods.

@bigsnow - you guys not vegans either then? We had veggie haggis last night which was surprisingly.... salty! My inner carnivore will be released next week when I go away to work.

Oh and er… just damp and very gloomy this morning. No wind at all.

Oh no not in this house, i did make veggie sausage pasta last night and thats about as veggie as we get, we are a meat eating family and kids eat all the stuff i did as a child, liver and bacon, hearts, kidneys, haggis, tongue and black pudding, they have a very good intake of fresh veg as well. Inner carnivore you say? that must be something to see 🥩🍗🍖🥓

This is our local footy pitch, very rarely flooded so i reckon the ground must still be quite hard underneath after the constant frosts.

You need one of them fancy plastic pitches, play in all conditions on one of them.

Aye, sure I've watched youngest son play games on worse than that, and we wonder why Scotland struggles to produce decent players. 

5C and patchy heavy rain here, with resulting rapid thaw and lots of surface water. Heading to central belt for weekend and suspect garden will be all green again by the time we get back on Sunday. 

Looking forwards, although certainly not giving up enough on winter yet, part of me is beginning to look forward to spring. Be nice to see the garden wake from its slumber. I'm saying that from the point of view of someone living in an area that has actually experienced some decent wintry weather and snow lying for extended periods.

they could be playing football in worse conditions :oldrofl: :help:  

 

9.8C here and a wee bit blowy so far but probably a lot worse to come (my weather station is not very high so doesn't really tell the story with the wind but usually anything near 20 mph is a good indicator that it is quite gusty) highest gust so far today 21.0 mph and 4.1mm of rain so far

Definitely a problem for us, it's ridiculous and my comment was very tongue in cheek. We need a complete overhaul of how we do sport in this country as the weather is a huge hurdle. I can remember getting sent out to play rugby on a pitch that was more puddle than grass as a kid, it doesn't teach anyone anything, except resentment 😂😂

A short slightly gusty spell here around midday, otherwise calm and pretty nothing sort of weather. 

We were told at school that going fell running in bad weather was character-building. We just despised the teachers a bit more.
