There is a real chance of -8 and below for Monday onwards. This is looking more certain with each forecast model that comes out every 6 hours.

 

With that, also a real chance of the type of really heavy snow we seen a few years back. This won't be known for sure until nearer the type, but all the ingredients certainly look to be there.

I haven't seen any forecasts that suggest-8.

Timing my migration back to Scotland well this year.

 

Dad’s 70th on March 3rd, so that’s his present sorted. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look after your elders, people. Stay warm.

I thought that weather systems didn't really exist these days until we gave them an official name like Henry or Jemima.

These models are still a few days out, so nothing is certain for the moment. Hence why your main weather news outlets are playing it down at the moment.

 

However, if these models hold true, we seem to be in for a cold one. 

 

It will be cold, just not sure how cold yet.

I’m going to watch The Day After Tomorrow, and Alive, in preparation.

 

If I have to eat the frozen corpses of my family, in order to make it through...so be it. Plus, I’ll have some of my Dad’s birthday cake left-over anyway.

I’m currently in the world’s second coldest capital- Astana. Locals tell me it’s warmer today than it has been recently - currrently minus 11 (“feels like” minus 20), according to my phone. Not that bad, actually. It’s quite a dry cold, if that makes sense.

 

They also told me it hit minus 45 a few weeks back (with “feels like” under minus 50).

This is showing no signs of letting up. in fact, it seems to be getting worse.

 

I expect a good foot of snow across much of the UK by the end of next week.

 

The below is just for Tuesday.

Hearts game will be off mind. But sledging is far more enjoyable.

This week has been nice weather wise, cold but nice during the day 

 

I’d be shocked if there was a foot of snow in Edinburgh next week

Edinburgh may not be as badly affected as other places, due to its proximity to the sea. However, it will be bitterly cold throughout the whole country.

 

As Barack said, game may be off Tuesday.

Was actually meaning Sunday, with the SC at Motherwell.

 

But, let’s see if this materialises first.

Never thought about Sunday, but aye, suppose. We should not see the worst come in until Monday night though.

 

I've been keeping an eye on this with a few meteorologists in twitter and a forum. They seem sure as hell towards the extreme temperature dip. Snow will come also, just not 100% sure as to where yet, as that is harder to predict so far out.

Well, looking fairly grim on the auld fitba’ front now. Tuesday looking like snow day in Edinburgh. And Scotland to get it totally on Wednesday.

 

People south of Birmingham, could be lost forever seemingly as well. Contact your loved ones. Check their wills are up to date. And you’re included.

You’ll be in the warm then, having your frost bitten fingers snipped off, by a wonderful medical professional before you know it.

A simple question, no rancor just curiousity, what motivates you to go on an icy roof, freezing cold, I would assume an element of danger because of the location and the conditions you will be working in wrapped up against the cold, less mobility from that but you are still going to be out there doing it,  my simple question is why.

The forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday is not looking that good for here in the Borders.

 

Wife is working all this week, and if the weather is as bad as is being predicted, then I'd not be surprised if she has to sleep at the Hospital overnight, being unable to make it back home, which has happened before, either that and if it's bad enough Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team is drafted in to transport them into work.
