Spare a though for those who live in the far north, and by that I mean the northern Isles. They’ve seen a severe spell of weather in the last 36 hours with a combination of very low temperatures, gales and heavy hail and snow showers. Unfortunately the charts from wxchart.com don’t cover the northern Isles too well so this is the best I can manage.
The UKMO have issued a yellow wind warning for Shetland, for a feature almost identical to the one that occurred yesterday that brushes close by the Islands to the east at lunchtime today. For once the Shetland Islands seem to be more than just an afterthought to the UKMO, I wonder how long it will last?
