Another great visible satellite image of the UK from the MODIS satellite . You can see the individual snow showers in the shape of cumulonimbus anvils as they continue to track westward along the Moray Firth this morning. It’s a shame that we’ve never got one of these showers full on today here in Strathpeffer, just glancing blows and five minutes of moderate snow. The showers today seem bigger and slower moving as the gradient starts to open up.

Quite possibly the shower is the same one in the satellite image

If Tomasz Schafernaker wants some drier air then he need look no further than the bitterly cold dry air thats streaming westward off Norway at the moment, it’s no surprise that skies are gin clear with low surface humidities like these.
