A mostly cloudy start to this morning here in Edinburgh with some breaks in that cloud, but also with a number of showers coming in from off the North Sea.
Sadly though, these are just rain showers here (it's just a shame that these aren't snow showers) despite the fact that we now finally at long, long last have the perfect synoptic setup (this hadn't previously happened since 2010) which cold weather lovers are always looking for at this time of the year, but very rarely ever get.😡
So far, there has been very little in the way of actual recorded rainfall from that, although a total of 1.0 mm of rain had been recorded from that at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh as at 8am GMT (08:00 UTC) this morning.
Despite all of the cloud cover and the showers, an official air frost was recorded during the night at Edinburgh Airport and Edinburgh Gogarbank (so we now have our first official air frost of the winter), but with only a ground frost at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh and it is already not even the least bit frosty now as I write.😡
Last night's overnight minimum temperatures were -1.0°C and Edinburgh Gogarbank, -1°C at Edinburgh Airport, but only down to +0.6°C at the botanic gardens in Edinburgh which is closer to the east coast than those other two stations.
Meanwhile, the temperature at 8am GMT (08:00 UTC) this morning was around 3°C here in Edinburgh which isn't actually all that cold, although that easterly wind from off the North Sea is making it feel quite a lot colder than that.
