That must be up in the hills as there is 0% chance that's in Duns 👍

Looks like our best chance of nacreous clouds (polar stratospheric clouds) will be over the next 2 (possibly 3 days) best chances will be at sunrise or sunset. I am really not sure of ideal conditions and will probably take a big bit of luck to see them but I have my fingers crossed that at least 1 of us might get lucky enough 🙏 sunrise and sunset times for here over the next few days Thursday - 8:45 am , 3:48 pm Friday 8:44 am, 3:49 pm Saturday 8:44 am , 3:50 pm.

Nacreous clouds form in the lower stratosphere over polar regions when the Sun is just below the horizon. The clouds are illuminated from below and often glow in vivid colours.

 

 

Last time for UK was Feb 2016

Way up in the Stratosphere there is very cold air above us. It's causing excitement for those who watch such things as a precursor to a possible cold, winter spell. This air can produce Nacreous Clouds...

It’s nice to see some folk seen a bit of snow today. I found some pictures while on Twitter.

I see there is some optimism in the mad house for a possible pattern change. Hopefully we can get a decent cold spell as we head into February.

I thought the Nacreous clouds might have made an appearance - sunset behind that hill in the above picture and I got some colour. No luck this time - try again sunrise tomorrow!

Have a good night!

Cracking photos!

Had to scrape the car here this morning and drive to work was -2 or -3C all the way. Bright but cold day in Inverurie and -1 or -2C on the drive home. Nice to see some snow pics, even if we'd all like it to be much snowier.

Today's weather was good here with sunshine for most of the day easily the best weather we've had so far in 2020 and it has been cold as well with 4.3c being our highest temperature and currently it's 0.0c just after 8.30pm.

Tornado threat tomorrow (Texas) upgraded to moderate risk then also further east toward Alabama on Saturday, potential for some strong tornadoes.

Fairly bright outside thanks to the clear skies and full moon. Easy to nip out for logs without the aid of a head torch. Didnt check the temperature, but it is very cold out there. Currently feeding kiln dried beech logs into the stove  Heat output is ridiculous 😀

Just checked garden thermometer. -5C and already a hard frost.
