Hi Everyone,

You are seriously asking for someone to forecast the weather for the 13th December?

My local weather isn't even forecast accurately for the next day sometimes!

The roads should be well open again by then. Who knows, with a bit of luck you may get stuck up there for Hogmany, Take plenty of lumps of coal, a bottle of Malt and some cash.

Through to Christmas
Confidence becomes much lower as we look further ahead into the Christmas week.

There is a signal that the severity of the cold spell will ease, although with temperatures still a little below normal. This suggests there is still scope for some snow and frost, but it may be more marginal.

I would ask the bookmakers or Walkers Crisps, who seem to have bets on weather forecasts.

Considering how the weather as changed over the past month,it can be anyones guess. Best to contact the Met Office for a long term forecast.

Best to wait and see.

As its Edinburgh I wouldn't bother even in good weather :) Now if it was Glasgow that's a different matter.

You forgot the salt!

When I was a kid ,in the north of England ,it was coal, cash and bread.

Where did the malt whiskey come from, or is this a 'Scotch' tradition;-))
