Hi folks.

The models are currently showing a likely cold spelll coming up from about Tues/Weds onwards, which may well extend into the festive period. Looks like there could be a good bit of snow about. Hope you've all got the winter woolies ready!  Grin

I'm happy we ain't got any more stormy and wet weather. I like the weather at the moment sunny spells and cold. But with possible snow on the way it just gets better.

I'm in agreement on that.

I've got snowy conditions from about the 20th; with the duration covering the festive period, now wont that be grand!

My WXSim is now starting to show snow in the forecast from Saturday onwards with windchill down to -7 on Sunday.
Although Wundergound are being a wee bit optimistic with a windchill to -15.  Roll Eyes

Passing snow showers down here but they are mostly snow pellets. Still giving a slight covering on the ground and more to come looking at the radar.

Well its been pretty hellish for the last couple of hours here and the roads are atrocious. Im on nights tonight and they're sending the Lerwick team out in the 4X4 to pick me up lol! Met Office has just issued a flash weather warning for Orkney & Shetland for further, heavy overnight snow!

I'm on dayshift and having my own 4x4 I have to pick up most of the watch on the way in in the morning.  Cheesy
Heavy snow showers coming through here at the moment, still it's nice in front of our new wood burner.  Grin

Around 2cm on the ground when I was last out at around 5pm. Lots of snow showers through the day with gusts up to 42mph. At around 1430 the temp took a particular tumble to almost -2C and we had a new max (min?) windchill of almost -9C. I'm sure it's worse elsewhere - NW to N are our most sheltered directions!

More snow here overnight....about 4cm...quite pretty as long as you don't have to go anywhere by car....It looks really dark to the NW of us, where I would imagine that there is plenty of snow still falling...

Well, that kinda explains why my Boltek has been going a bit OTT this am....I thought that maybe I had messed up the settings a tad on the changeover....mmm
