    Not much proper lying snow left in the village after the late afternoon rain (pffft) but what is left is now frozen solid at -2.5C.   For some unknown reason I'm recording lower temps than others nearby. Instrumentation error perhaps; theirs, not mine, of course.

    Cold air falling down the slope from higher up in calm conditions?

    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!

    That is possible but most of the cold that comes down the hill (from my sister's place and thereabouts of course, where the snow still sticks to the trees) has other easier routes downhill, mainly via the episcopal church to the harbour.

    It really doesn't so I'm not expecting much. Charts suggesting a snow to rain to snow event. Met suggesting rain to snow. We'll see what happens - been a different kind of winter so far so you never know!

    Met Office have me down for many hours of cold rain tomorrow. I am not holding out too much hope. Higher parts of Lanarkshire might do well.

    Morning folks!

    Lovely one it is too!   Yesterday morning I could hardly see across the other side of the road, it was so dark!

    Currently it is -1.3c/-1.6c/1014/WNW/calm.

    I'm with you James in thinking we are a wee bit too west. Of course it's not over until the front arrives and the physics does its magic. I'm directly in line on a north south axis with the Forth Bridge - will be interesting to see where the dividing line falls. Reminiscent of the event 16 March 2019.

    Twenty sixth air frost this morning at -3.4C.
