  6. Little selection of snaps around this area today. It's caused utter carnage in the local area today, especially shotts however seems to be getting slightly better now. Not what I was expecting today but after seeing nothing but rain and tarmac at 7am this morning then it hasn't turned out too bad, even clocked a snow drift in my back garden lol

  7. Most of the models have been pushing the atlantic through that shallow high- UKMO 12z now seeing more undercutting - probably the coldest scenario although not 'very' cold- however could still develop colder...

  10. There's still time?? It proves that the weather will do whatever it wants no matter your attitude. It also proves that it's better being chirpy, having a positive attitude and making people laugh and getting no snow than being a miserable git and still getting no snow. I had fun doing those wee things yesterday even though I was suspicious all day and certain by 7pm that it wasn't going to happen for me.

  13. Was in Inverness for a bit, snow lying down to about 300ft. Disappointing to read Doris was a bit of a fan*y for some of you guys where it had promised better, a vicarious snow fix just ain't the same, but here's a few from a spin around these parts

  14. Been snowing here since 4am. Typical since I have to get wee man to hosp to have his broken foot reviewed. He's going to be gutted when he wakes to see this snow he can't play in lol. Still snowing very heavily

  15. We seem to be coming out of the warm sector now, snowing and settling above 200m. Sleeting heavily here now but not going to settle even if it does snow due to the floods 1st pic is on Harden's Hill between Duns and Longformacus and second one is on the A6105 between Greenlaw and Duns.

  16. I would take the ukmo / Gem 12z at T+144 as they are the best looking in terms of a colder start to march.

  19. Just been on the moor behind my house with my trusty hand held anemometer. At 350m the mean speed was 53 mph, gusting 75 mph. With continuous moderate sleet 10 minutes was more than enough.

  25. @asjmcguire don't blame the optimist for your own misfortune!! It's a little sleety here at the minute so I'm thinking my timings were a little early, that's all!! Plenty of time left...

  33. Maybe a slightly misleading tweet. Capel Curig is very exposed. For the Midlands and East Anglia their stormy weather is about to set in properly through the afternoon. Nothing easing about Doris for eastern England

  35. I did find the snow going over the hill to work in Greenock. Lots of cars/vans stuck on the hill between Lochwinnoch and Kilmacolm. The winter tyres were working well this morning.

  36. Wow, from the pictures it looks like Fife and parts of N.Lanarkshire are getting the clobbering that the Borders were supposed to receive. That last one from @Benvironmentis seriously impressive. Well the drive to work for me this morning was through probably the heaviest snow of the winter up here. Which to be honest isn't saying much and caused no real problems despite a mix of slush and snow on the roads. Strangely though, up to the top of Tyrebagger on the A96 it was heavy snow, with it lying. As soon as you got over the top, and I mean an instant transformation, it was rain and wet r

  41. One point of interest this morning vis the GEFS anomalies is the evolution of stronger positive anomalies over Iceland to a cut off high pressure cell as a result of the temporary amplification next week leaving the trough to dominate the Atlantic. This is reflected in this morning's det. run Once Doris is out of the way fronts associated with depressions tracking east from Iceland bring further rain and strong winds on Saturday. A brief respite before the next depression arrives north of Scotland 970mb by Sunday 18z bringing more fronts and rain to quickly traverse the country. Sys

  42. Yes next week is actually starting to look pretty wintry, it has potential to be one of the best week of the winter for snow showers , but not that cold so not much lying snow away from high ground I doubt.
