I watched that as well, they are not saying too much as they have little to no confidence this far out.

At the moment everything is just another week away, then another week and so on...before we know it the winter months will be gone.

One decent fall of snow and I'll be happy...the snaw shovel is still in the hut unused so far this winter extended autumn.

See how things look after the weekend, if the Met Office take an interest, it could be game on.

Where's this snowmageddon gone?

According to the Met office, it was never there in the first place.

Wild and very wet as I drove home around 4:30pm. Got soaked just jumping I to the post office in Alford to pick up a parcel. 

Next weekend still showing 'potential' for some snow, but probably not widespread, and certainly not what I'd call 'snowmageddon'.

Well, that's me on hols. Packing for Les Arcs the morn, flight early doors Saturday.

Forecast is for at least 10 cm of fresh snow, maybe more, just prior to my arrival. I'm eagerly watching French radar now.

I shall be travelling, for the first time, as an Irishman, having officially become one in November (thanks Gran!). Very much looking forward to it, although feels slightly weird. Need tae mibbie update the moniker, at least to Scottish-Irish Skier.

In addition to learning a bit of Scots Gaelic, j'apprends aussi le français sérieusement. Cela devrait être utile pour mes vacances!

As for the Scots weather, looking a bit better for the snaw going towards February. Everything that bit cooler it seems, with ever more sub -5 uppers. Fingers crossed I come back from France to some Scots sneachda tae welcome us hame.

*Getting the deck chairs oot and the picnic table set up for the weekend*
SS you've got it right. If my granny had held on a wee bit longer and been born in Galway instead of Glasgow I'd be joining you wi the Irish passport.

Regarding the cold weather...it looks like the UK snaw deflector shield is set to full and nobody can find the bloody off switch..!!!

Yep! All doom and gloom again in the mad house. I would be happy to see just one day of lying snow this winter. The models are all over the place so who knows what will happen as we head into February.

Hopefully we are all posting new pictures in February. Surly we won’t go through the whole of this winter with little or no snowfall!

Well in the last 4 years I've had 3 days of lying snow which is crazy.... 2 came from the beast and even then we only got 4 inches from the beast...... Been really slim pickings for a while here. I knew 2010 was epic and a once in a lifetime but didn't know I was using up 210 years of snow during that spell 😢

You've been remarkably unlucky even for your location. Perhaps we're not crossing enough fingers and squeezing our eyes tight enough? 🤔🤣

Having said that I've done well over the past ten years, so I shouldn't complain!
