Some pretty fierce gusts of winds overnight in conjunction with the heavy showers of hail and snow across the north. The 75 mph gust at Fair Isle at 06 UTC will take some licking. The air temperature fell to -5.2°C at Lerwick last night despite the strong to near gale force N’NW ly winds and heavy showers of hail and snow. Just think on Saturday the UKMO had quite inexplicably left out the Northern Isles from their warnings of snow.
Still problems with that anemometer at Lerwick.
