    Only 1.4C here at the moment but with the clag rolling in everything is looking very different to how it did these past few days:

    I miss the sun already!

    That last image captures the beauty of Winter, mother nature at her best.

    Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

    I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

    I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    In the Highlands I imagine most places are covered in Snow like this, most areas of Scotland seem to have their Snow sorted for the year.

    Houses always look good with Snow on top plus it's a pretty thick laying of snow.

    At the moment in Scotland Snow seems to have consumed everything.

    Its possible we have found a house.. waiting to hear back from the estate agent.. fingers crossed as it is in what i feel is a perfect spot for winter..

    Its warmed up here a bit today and a rapid thaw of my 2cm has left just a slushy mess.

    The mad house is so difficult to read currently.. so much conflicting from one post to the next..

    Where is it?

    Really nice around there. Interesting stretch of the Spey, some good woodland for walking and cycling, Co-op in Aberlour...

    Rain washed away most of the little but of snow we had but has left the ice as well as a bit more as a ground frost came in this morning. 2.3C now after a max of 4.0C last night and a min of 1.0C around 9AM. An interesting read @CatchMyDrift

    Absolutely right @Puffy MacCloud - but you forgot the added bonuses of fog shrouding high ground and the exposed base ice as slippy as cubes from the freezer to navigate. It's treacherous. Currently 3.7°C.

    Some nice looking charts appearing in the models, I hope it continues later on the 12z. 

    @Kirkcaldy Weather showing his excitement in the model thread which is good to see 😀

    Afternoon Everybody

    Talk is about late Next Week for the Chance of Arctic Air coming down. 

    11 January- 16 January Chance

    Towards the East perhaps we do Have Some Edges Of Colder Upper Air so perhaps a light laying. Of course the chances that this Air is cold is minimal due To The Thickness Of Dam And The Fact that Many A Time The Uppers have been much warmer than expected so very few flakes possible. 

    Around a 15% Of Chance That The Uppers Are Cold Enough That Snow is possible.

    16 january - 23 January

    Early on the Uppers aren't Cold Enough however later on with more uncertainty there is a Chance that the expected not so cold Uppers could change and they don't need to chance much due to the thickness of the dam.

    23 January Onwards

    Late January is when the Chance Starts Soaring Due to Arctic Air Settling In but if Course There Is A chance that due to the unlikely was that these charts could be opposite but I find that there is certainty over cold Uppers and a low thickness dam. 

    755019467_gensnh-0-1-372(3).thumb.png.fe7f30ed5a5b4d2278c05847e7353598.pnggensnh-0-0-384.thumb.png.c28d6210c5a3969b8ed90889bebe9c5b.png

    A Met Office type update. 

    January 11 - January 16

    Snow will, most likely be confined to hills and higher spaces as other areas get above average temperatures. 

    January 16 - January 23

    Certainty is pretty low over this period but there is a chance of deep snow in higher areas. 

    January 23 Onwards

    Certianty is low over this period however there is likely to be settling of snow and in some place heavy snow which could cause disruption. 

    I'm sure the Mods will go over anything that I've missed out. 

    In conclusion to a relatively long post. 

    January 11 - January 16

    Snow Chance

    15% depending on where you are

    January 16 - January 23

    Snow Chance

    55% Depending on where you are

    January 23 Onwards

    65% Depending on where you are but certainty is low. 

    Thanks

    Xander

    Horrible, horrible day. Grey and dreich. Forced myself out for a walk then the rain decided to appear so that shortened the walk considerably. Last weeks' weather is but a memory now. Hopefully late January may produce a bit more in the way of wintriness. Fingers crossed, but as usual I won't build my hopes up! Currently 6.4c with lightish winds. 🙄
