It just had to happen this year.

Mega cold winter and massive energy costs....

An interesting read from Netweather - signals strongly favour Northern Blocking into December:

[www.netweather.tv] .

While higher than average sea surface temperatures can moderate the cold particularly near the coast, with the right wind direction and some instability with cold air aloft the temperature contrast can help drive convection leading to more snowfall potential on hills getting onshore winds.

NE winds could thus see convective streamers set up off the Moray Firth and push into the Northern Cairngorms for example.

Met Office video showing how various models are going for cooler conditions as high pressure takes control of our weather from the weekend, but looks like a settled and dry spell coming up.

This is definitely worthy of a post here - the mythical low pressure triple stack, the synoptics that launched the 2001 season, delivered feet of snow from a slow moving occlusion in Aviemore in 2010!

Big uncertainty on wind speeds end of the week into weekend, as we could be in the middle of large and deep low pressure - anything from light and variable to Storm Force! Detail is lacking the bigger picture is looking much more promising, unsettled and cool to cold.

Letís hope thereís not a final sucker punch to the remaining West Coast and CairnGorm base.
