back to article Sand storm menaces Scottish Highlands

Those of you up there in the Scottish Highlands who are bracing for the expected -130°C big chill predicted yesterday by the Daily Star would do well to add Bedouin protective headgear to your inclement weather clothing checklist, if the BBC's five-day forecast for Aviemore is correct: Sand storm due tomorrow in Aviemore, BBC …

They're pretty good usually

The BBC TV warned us of zero-degree temperatures yesterday at the same time as they reported minus ten in Aviemore.

Today they warned us it would go down (yes, 'down') to +4, at the same time as I was starting my car at -10 here in Dingwall. By lunch-time it had risen up to the banana-growing heights of -5 before cooling down for the evening. Who knows what we'll have tomorrow? Why not sand-storms, we've had 'em before.

It's + 40oC here today

What is this *minus* you speak of and why does it cause sand storms?

Pfft ...

According to the weather station at the University of York (http://www.amp.york.ac.uk/external/weather/current1.html) it's currently -999C outside, with an atmospheric pressure of 1032mb. Granted, their mast is on top of the Physics building (itself pretty tall) so at ground level it's probably a tad chillier.

What I *do* know, however, is that -999C or not, it's bloody nithering out there!

Flames, 'cos it's cold, dammit!
