With the current wintry conditions and Wick having its coldest night of the year so far, a local weather pundit says that temperatures will soon rise again.
Wick weather watcher, Keith Banks, reports: "A plunge of Arctic air has ushered in a return to snow and sub-zero temperatures to Caithness midweek.
"Snow depths in Wick were up to 3cm following the coldest night of the winter so far, with the temperature in the town getting down to minus 6.7C on Thursday morning.
"However, the cold spell will be short-lived as fronts associated with low pressure to the south-west of the UK will gradually push less cold air northwards and cause temperatures to recover over the next few days."
