Weather: Wintry showers

A quick look at the cloud satellite and rain radar from today will show you just what a mix of weather we have going on.

Sunny spells, patchy cloud and plenty of showers.

Satellite and radar

With our winds coming from the north the temperatures are very low for the time of year - feeling like 4C or below in the northerly winds.

That means the showers have been falling as a mixture of rain, sleet and snow - even down to lower levels.

Chuck in some heavy downpours of hail and we have a very active set up that will last through the next few days.

What’s life like in Wanlockhead, Scotland’s highest village? For some it’s the dream place to live – but everywhere has its issues. There’s currently a proposal on the table to place wind turbines above the village. Many villagers are worried - but with jobs in short supply, it might provide a useful economic boost for the area. Or perhaps a community buy-out of the land the village sits on is the answer? The villagers have lots of plans, from reforesting and a wood pellet factory to improving ski facilities. From the pub to Scotland's highest railway, we get the low down from the locals and explore what the future might bring for one of Scotland's most special places.

Weather: A wintry feel

With high pressure in the west and low pressure in the east we are seeing a feed of chilly air moving down from the north.

A cold front has been moving across the region bringing chilly conditions.

Gusty winds follow with showers that will be wintry - even down to lover levels overnight.

Unfortunately for those hoping to see a return to last week's warm temperatures this set up is due to stay with us for the next few days.
