Greenland Air Replaces Azores Air, First Disruptive Snow For Highland Scotland

It may be mild and rather soggy for the bulk of England, Wales even Northern Ireland but cold air hangs on across Scotland and because of that, snow is falling above 1,500ft. Moisture has been plentiful, lifting up from the sub-tropical Atlantic along a frontal boundary attached to low pressure W of Scotland. Heavy, persistent and wind driven rain has caused issues across NW England and Wales today with flooding in places.

Yep it started off VERY mild this morning. Remember NORMAL HIGHS are largely in single figures now.


Over the next 24 hours that low swings ESE across N England and as it does, colder air gets drawn down over Scotland and so expect snow levels to drop. Tonight and through tomorrow should see snow falling down to most high level road routes across the Highlands and this snow is likely to cause some disruption to the Thursday morning commute.
