Over on the north coast the snow was heavier and settled, but by this morning it had gone. Only the higher hills, like these ones across Loch Sunart from Kilchoan, still had a blanket. During the day the wind has been increasing, and we're forecast for a 'near gale' by this evening.
We've noticed that, over recent weeks, our weather has been dominated by cold southeasterly winds, to the exclusion of our more 'normal' wet, warm and sometimes very windy westerlies. Forecasters are blaming the cold weather on.... a warming in the stratosphere, and are predicting it will continue. Read more here.
Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for the photo of the icicles.
