A wonderful winter’s afternoon

Figure 1

Any morning cloud that’s been affecting some southern areas has now dissolved away, and it’s a wonderful afternoon across the bulk of the country. It’s still possible to see the extent of the snow over the mountains of Scotland through the thickening frontal cloud (fig 1).

The easterly wind is blowing fresh or strong across southern areas though (fig 2).

This has meant that wind chill has been sub-zero in the more exposed places (fig 3), but not excessively low because of the clear skies and widespread sunshine (fig 4).
