very cold here in Meath, a chilly 5C today, easily the coldest day since March and we didn't have many 5C afternoons at all last winter.

Lovely blue skies and unbroken sunshine here on the Kerry coast Gonzo, 10.6C after a low of 2.8C. The very best kind of weather for this time of year.

Not sure what happened to this high pressure system. It was supposed to be sunny, but has been bleak, cloud for most of the past two days.

Not a breath of wind. So still the stove fire will not burn. Just smoulders and dies.

Dark skies out here; that funny shade they take on sometimes.... . Just yellowy grey and heavy, and very chilly.

Lovely evening here, really has been nice the last few days compared to the muck that we got for most of this month. I'm presuming the rain will be back soon though It seems the past few months we can't go for more than a few days without rain.

Now I didnt mind when we were all snowed in was it 2 years ago? That was grand because we could all just stay at home!

I want no snow or else snowed in!

I always say (in Dublin at least) I'm convinced you're as likely to get half-decent and sunny weather under low pressure (or at least slack pressure) as you are with high pressure.

I've lost count of the number of days over the past few years when a strong area of high pressure has been slap bang over Ireland and Dublin has been covered in cloud or had rain. It's so frustrating.

I didn't even think it was meteorologically possible.

Anticyclonic gloom, quiet common under high pressure during the winter unfortunately.

lol... I would be fine out here. Well stocked always as we get cut off regularly. Still yearning to build one last snowman.

I am spending hours a day ( knitting at the same time) on this series on youtube, "Life below Zero". Within the Arctic Circle etc ( cannot post links) Breathtaking SNOW and people who live survival out there. Relying on their hunting and fishing skills etc. Utterly riveting .

If I were young.... I mean it!

Meanwhile a chilly morning. The cats are now creeping into bed with me thinking I will keep them warm when really the opposite is happening.

I think it's going to be an unpredictable winter, I'm a total novice, but does the lack of air traffic have anything to do with a change in weather direction.
Probably a silly question, but I'm prepared to be laughed at or told air traffic has nothing to add or take from the weather.
