Snow on Islay
We have had a small but significant fall of snow on Islay that is persisting on the high ground. High pressure over Scandinavia seems to have dropped anchor and we have had a long period of very cold easterly winds. The snow is of the unpleasnt icy variety that arrives in horizontal bursts and freezes into sold blocks. Hopeless for snowball or snowmen. This was the view out over Foreland Estate this morning.
