As of posting this (Saturday 18th Jan @ 10:55) you can see the large cold air mass over Scandinavia that from a winter sports prospective we'd all love to cover the UK being blocked by the massive (warm and wet) weather systems out to the west over the Atlantic.
Being depressed by unseasonably warm weather has never looked so good :-)
