First snow of the winter!



Albeit a couple of blustery showers so far, although overnight looks quite promising especially into the early hours. I'm quite pleased with myself because I flagged this up on the gulberwick weather website and FB page a week ago and issued a Yellow Alert on Monday (the Met office have followed suit today). It's always nice to get one up on the experts, especially will all the gear at their disposal!

As I write (7.20pm) the temp is 2.2C and the Dew is -1.2C which is not bad for October"! I get copied in to the forecasts the Meto issue to the local authority which puts more details on the alert issued. It says: "[font=Arial]Shetland, in particular, will see some testing conditions on Thursday and Friday with cold temperatures, strong to gale force northwesterly winds (possibly reaching severe gale force for a time around midday on Friday) and frequent wintry showers. " We'll see. I'm certainly hopeful of a covering by morning so I'll get some photos taken if thats the case.[/font]

Update: Awoke to a light covering of snow as I thought. Further snow showers this morning.
