Are you ready to be plunged into the freezer?
Britain may not have seen the coldest air of the season yet

Much of the UK should once again be covered under a blanket of snow as the Arctic front roars down from the pole in a due south direction and we should feel stinging NW winds come Thursday and conditions should worsen through the weekend. What greatly concerns me is what may be in store NEXT WEEK once the Arctic high settles in, winds lighten up and temperatures really take a plunge into what may be unknown territory… I shall have more details in the coming days. Stay right here!

24-hour surge of warmth tomorrow (Wed) is calm before the storm!

As the Arctic air presses southwards and creates a ripple in the upper-pattern over the UK, warmth from the southwest will rush snortheast across the UK allowing a little temping warmth across all areas and despite 3 straight days below freezing across many inland Scotland areas, it may warm towards 4-5C tomorrow, so don’t be fooled, the following day will likely remain at or below freezing with a strengthening NW wind and a biting windchill. There may even be snowflakes flying!

Sundog captured yseetrday afternoon as Arctic sun sets over central Scotland.

This shot looking south from my office window is of a sundog that formed beside the setting sun, an optical illusion which forms at sunset sometimes within an intensly cold air mass.

Perfect Arctic evening sky with multiple aircraft vapor trails and the setting sun

Here’s another great view of the sundog with the sunset. This is a phenomenon seen within clear Arctic usually at sunset and it’s believed their created by extremely cold air aloft.

Another view looking south with this home adding to the cold appearance as vapor blasts out from a vent. This is caused by heat entering very cold air.

Vagaries of the Weather
India & Sub-Continental Asia Weather

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

The falling temperature trend throughout North/central and western India since last week has stopped, and the night temperatures have stabilised on a “lower plateau” on Tuesday. I expect the nights to get a bit warmer from Wednesday for a couple of days.

On the coming of the forecasted (by vagaries ) W.D. by Friday, the days in the North will get cooler by 2/3 c. And the lows would decrease again after the passing of the W.D.

More detailed forecast later.

Today’s Extremes here at my house

High: 33 degrees (late evening High)
Low: 19 degrees (early evening Low)

Snowcover: 1.5 inches
A generally cloudy day, though remaining below normal for time of year, it was a milder feeling day overall but not enough to further erode the remaining snowpack continues to now rival the duration (consecutive no. of days with lying snow) seen all last winter here at my Lennoxtown site. Warmer air to arrive tomorrow ahead of fresh blast of very cold Arctic air which should arrive late Wednesday/early Thursday.

Thanks for reading.
