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 ?

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

    Let’s see how this turns out. ?❄️

    Had a wee light snow shower just before sunset earlier.

    Edit: Stunning pictures below @Northern Strath - my personal favourites are the third, fourth and sixth one! Christmas card scenes! Glad to hear you did not get snowed in and got a perfect day for a walk about in it!

    These showers to the west are just starting to catch my location, and they are snow. Lying on the grass, but not hard surfaces.

    Had to pop out earlier about 7.30. Can't remember the last time I'd to scrape the car in the evening. Feels seasonal. Lovely and still too. Great stuff!

    Tillyfourie near us saw virtually no thaw today.

    Aye it was a winter wonderland this morning with snow hanging heavily on the trees by the side of the road. I was surprised to see virtually the same on the way home. Usually if a thaw doesn't clear them the wind does. 

    Not a lot of obvious thaw in my garden, no doubt helped by the overnight frost last night. It was widely -4/5C at 9pm when I'd to run to Insch and back tonight too.

    Not too much to do though.... No offence tiff ? couldn't agree more re the guys, I have a timeshare in Aviemore which has a real buzz to it these days and plenty activities and a close drive to the cairngorm or Loch morlich and to a large city Inverness.... Really has a bit of everything. 

    True.. won't be here much longer as myself and the other warden are being made redundant...change of managers and contracts, so who knows where we'll end up now. Today was the day I'll take away from braemar though, a perfect winter's day.

    Loving the pictures...good to see some are enjoying the snaw.

    A bit of a nothing day...it was actually quite pleasent in the afternoon the first time in a while a jacket wasn't needed for outside.

    Colder tonight than of late I had a peek outside and the car's an ice cube...current temp -1.4deg/C.

    I was watching the Saturday summary over on Weatherbell in the US they were hinting a pattern change could come in the first week or two in March when the Jetstream finally calms down a bit...I hope this comes off it'll be great to be rid off this reletless westerly wind.

    Lots of cold air bottled up in the PV when this lot breaks up could this give us a cold start to the spring - https://www.wxcharts.com/?panel=large&model=ecmwf,ecmwf,ecmwf,ecmwf&region=polar&chart=850temp,850temp,2mtemp,850temp&run=12&step=204&plottype=10&lat=51.500&lon=-0.250&skewtstep=0

    Opportunity for a surprise on Saturday night with the models playing about with different scenarios. 

    A foot of snow and 50mph winds might be a too far fetched though

    It'll come as no surprise but I enjoyed my morning cycle for the first time in quite a while! Lovely and frosty higher up, no frost lower down but much more ice on the canal.

    My take on it is that its the raw output generated by the gfs runs. I may be wrong but I had been using it as a quick guide to see what the gfs was showing locally. Met Office is having none of it just now ofcourse ?

    Nearly 30cm of fog now that is quite a weather event! Might look a bit daft trying to measure fog though ? ( see @shuggee getting that accumulating fog too) ?
