2.0C. Clear to the east, leaving a frost on cars etc., patches of cloud overhead moving north, thicker continuous cloud cover showing up in the west. The forecasted Channel Low is on its way!

Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning. Clear here apart from a bit of cloud on the eastern horizon (which is halfway across the North Sea, looking at the satellite view!)

Cold, calm and frosty. Yesterday ended up going down to -0.1 after I posted, so just about scraped in! Today is much more emphatic: it's -0.9, dew -1.7, with a low so far of -1.1 - the coldest night for four weeks. There's a thick hoar frost on many surfaces.

Yesterday's high was 9.6, so a little above average.

The models are beginning to show a blocked and wintry outlook. Can’t believe the Model output thread is soooooooo quiet. Too many false dawns perhaps? I have a feeling this might be the one that verifies.

A combination of the winter crowd moving on (leaving those who for whatever reason are less keen on potenential snow in early spring), "once bitten twice shy" and it still being far too far out for any sense of reliability, I'd guess.

Meanwhile in the here and now, in the dying days of winter, I was amused to see the 15-30+mm of rain as forecast by the various models a couple of days out has turned into all of 6mm, as the low has tracked further south. To be fair the small-scale models such as ICON D2 picked the change up first, then the MetO hi-res, and last of all the GFS.

The usual wind tables have turned, too, with the MetO raw going for much higher winds right from the off - GFS has gradually caught up. I can only guess it's because of the direction, straight from the North Sea...

It's presently 7.7C with a strong and gusty NE'ly (gusting to 51-52mph), cloudy but dry.

The low so far is 7.4 and yesterday's high was 7.9.

4C. After yesterdays deluge it's dried up overnight. There is now a brisk and uncomfortable, cutting and almost lazy NE wind.

The wind is really roaring out there - the highest sustained winds of the winter, and the gusts are up there too.

The yacht club up the road is reporting a 1-hour mean of just over 40mph, frequent gusts into the low 50s... another gale, in other words.

It's damaged the roof of the Isle's Tesco, too, so that's closed today. (Tesco is right next to the sea, on the site of the former Sheerness Zoo!)

A cold and frosty start to this morning with an official air frost being recorded at all three of my local stations here in Edinburgh.

This is now our third air frost in a row which in the space of just those last three days, has now doubled the total number of air frosts which we have had during this entire month.

That has also brought us into a bright and sunny start to this morning and in that sunshine, the temperature has already jumped up to around 5°C here in Edinburgh which isn't even all that cold any more.😡
The north of Edinburgh, usually always missing out on snow events which occur not just within the rest of Scotland or the UK, but also within the rest of Edinburgh.

Unpleasant day with frequent sleety showers and strong northerly wind - they do soon go through though and have only amounted to about 1mm so far. 4.6C currently

The wind is finally dying down here - I can hear the water circulating in the radiators now, whereas before it was drowned out, even though I'm on the other side of the house to where the wind is hitting!

It's been cloudy, dull and very windy all day long.

Currently 6.9, dew 3.0, the high today being 7.9.
