Plenty of cloud activity here today along with a frost that came yesterday evening and hasn't thawed out yet - there's not enough heat in the Sun!

Caught this excellent anvil in the general direction of Scotland....

That's a beautiful cloud Paul!. Looks like some mammatus trying to form on it too. I never seen anything like that here today, however the freezing conds and fog have not lifted in over 24 hrs. Surprised there hasn't been road accidents today. The roads were extremely dangerous.

That cb looks in pretty good shape considering the weak solar heating. I suspect the warm moist air over the Sea generated enough fuel for it to feed on for a while. Way too cold inland for those here unfortunately.

Nice capture there. Most people wo'nt even notice it as they rarely look skywards. When I was on Mull  in August I pointed out some wonderful orographic cloud to some some Dutch campers who were having a 7.30 brekky by a loch and they hadn't seen it - then they  marvelled at it.
