Anticyclonic spell in north, windy, raw and rather cold further south


The cold spell continues over the whole of IONA al least for the next four days according to the Hires ECMWF model. Eventually high pressure, which is forecast to build across the north of Scotland and eventually link up with one over Scandinavia, will veer winds into the northeast and then east, with a tightening gradient across England and Wales and outbreaks of rain in the extreme south, with scattered wintry showers down the eastern coast of both England and Scotland. Clear spells on Monday and possibly Tuesday night coupled with a snow cover could produce an even colder night that the -10°C at Dalwhinnie we’ve just seen. My money is on Altnaharra as the likelist coldest spot if it stays clear.
