Scottish Highlands records coldest winters day since 1986
The met office has reported that Aviemore recorded -18 last night, the coldest temperature since 1986.
Where I am is only -1 and the ground is covered with snow.
Temperatures in parts of the Highlands plunged as low as -18C overnight as much of the country had its coldest night of the winter.
Aviemore recorded the coldest February temperature since 1986 (-18C), Aberdeen was down to -12C and Wick was -8C.
The Met Office also warned of freezing overnight temperatures leading to the risk of widespread ice on untreated roads and pavements.
Temperatures in the central belt were about -1C despite snow falls.
The freezing conditions provided a boost for Scotland's ski centres.
Skiers flocked to the slopes to make the most of the weather.
At Glenshee Ski Centre the car park was full by 1000 GMT, with 1,500 cars parked.
