And the Met Office is predicting more snow on Scotland’s peaks in the coming weeks.
A long range forecast from the organisation – valid from Friday, November 10 until Sunday, November 19 – said: “A spell of wet and windy weather is possible for most on Friday with a risk of gales or severe gales, especially in the northwest, although details are uncertain at this range
“Sunshine and showers will then follow through the weekend, the showers possibly turning wintry with some snow over high ground in the north. The best of the driest and brightest weather is likely in the south and southeast, especially on Sunday.
“Monday may be more settled with a changeable pattern then becomes established through the rest of the week. There will be drier days interspersed with spells of rain.
“Temperatures will be generally near normal, but rather cold in settled spells with night frosts.”
