Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

Standing an impressive 5ft 5in tall - the kids have done well with limited resources ?

Slight frost this morning but nowhere near as cold as others it would seem. Wet, wet, wet now and listening to the rain battering off the window.

Next week looks preety wintry on higher ground in Scotland, significant precipitation and some colder uppers - ski resorts will be happy I suspect after a poor start to the season, often takes until mid Jan before things get going properly..

Very windy day especially afternoon and evening after a cold start at -2c.Took a run through to Thainstone to sell a few cattle this morning and the car thermometer got down to -4c between Huntly and Inverurie. Was very sunny this morning further east.

A cold and frosty morning here but cloud thickened and there has been rain this evening. Temps up to 6.4C now. No sign of the high winds here yet that others are reporting. My daughter says that the rain is battering off her windows in Glasgow and that it has been blowing a hoolie!

Got down to -1.7 C here last night, currently 8.6 C and wind really starting to pick up with rain on and off. A shame we didn't get to see any nacreous clouds, hopefully it doesn't take too long before the next opportunity.

For this part of the world it's pretty wind this morning, still only about 60mph gusts though.

There is going to be some bad flooding, there are 16 Flood Warnings out and this is only going one way with another 50-75mm of rain coming today:

A grim day ahead for those who are going to be affected ?

Mild start with wind gusting to 50 mph. Great conditions for drying out the ground and firewood.

Currently 11C.

BBC weather forecast going with sleet and snow for low levels northern Scotland later today.

Next week looks wet, mild and very windy.

Tedious.....

Nice ? east Sutherland hills were looking wintry yesterday as I drove down the A9 (closed due to an accident as usual) but hey, it's the weekend, so it all turns to pish and mush and it's miserable dull minging pants and crap out there.

A intense burst went through here about 10 minutes ago

The squall line is very distinct, could it have been this?

Yes the mwis outlook has changed significantly last night. Looking much better!

PLANNING OUTLOOK

All mountain areas of Britain from Sunday 12th January 2020

A series of deep Atlantic lows will influence the British Isles during the week ahead. Winds generally west or southwesterly, but often containing a cold air mass originating around Greenland. The result being that most UK mountains will stay commonly sub-zero over the next 10 days, with only brief periods of thaw. Frequent precipitation, often rain lowest slopes, but accumulating upland snow, may become substantial Scottish Highlands. Occasional hail. Sustained periods of upland gales, at times storm force winds on the mountains.
