More tabloid clickbait nonsense being printed this week. Decent snowfall to come in parts of Scotland over the next few days but we aren’t going to be ‘buried under 30cm’ of snow on my watch. If only.
I’m a snow-lover, and love frosty mornings and that crisp-feel to a winter’s day but we certainly had more snow when I was a lad, as well as colder nights. I know winter hasn’t finished with us yet but I’m actually starting to look forward to Spring now. Being able to get out in the garden, cutting the lawns and feeling some warmth from the sun can’t come quickly enough. Sunsets are now after 5pm. Springtime will soon be here.
Thursday: Colder air has now arrived from the northwest. Sunny spells with some wintry showers blown in on a brisk biting wind. These will fall as hail, sleet and snow above 250M. Harsh frost to come overnight. Max 5°C Min -4°C
Friday: A decent day with plenty of sunny spells after a very frosty and possibly foggy start. Lighter winds with the sun turning hazy later. Max 6°C Min 2°C
Weekend: High pressure slips away. Windy with periods of rain.
Saturday: A cold and bright start but cloud and wind increasing from the west quickly as rain moves in during the day and it becomes milder. Max 8°C Min 6°C
Sunday: Mild and staying unsettled with further rain or showers and windy. Max 10°C Min 5°C
Outlook: The westerly flow of wind and spells of rain or showers looks set to continue. At this stage no sign of any proper cold, a Beast from the East or sledge-able snowfall. I feel a chilly March could be on the cards.
