  1. Keep an eye open for very short-lived funnel clouds or tornadoes.
  2. 'Orrible sticky outside just now. Sun making an attempt and if it manages to break through it's gonna be unbearable.
  3. Guys, I've completely lost track of the warnings for today, areas affected etc and don't have time to catch up. I know I'm asking a huge favour, but can anyone just post a wee message re risks near Livingston in the central belt of Scotland. I've had a bit of a horsie emergency and the last thing I need is a downpour whilst they're still out in the field. I know it's a big ask, but even just some vague pointers will help. I'll check back later, gotta get back to neddies, can't be left alone.
  4. Would you believe it? It fell apart as it passed over me and is now reorganising north of me. Look at the rainfall radar animation and see what happened as it passes over the A71 just west of Livi.
  5. Thunder rumbling away, cell looks to be heading to pass just west of Livi from the SE. Horses brought in. One didn't give a toss, the other was all sweated up.
  6. I've reached the point where I'm longing for spring... what we have just now is miserable.
  7. Nah, I really did mean take 'em off, may supply an extra... measuring stick...
  8. Could take the bottoms off though... that'd keep 'em dry.
  9. Started here again, had a lull for a couple of hours, but it looks like it might make up for that. Of course it starts just as I have to go out and bed down the horses for the night.
  10. If that pans out we're gonna get hammered here and we're now at about 8 inches with 2.5 ft drifts in places.
  11. Yeah, but never trust a male when he says anything measures 13 inches... just sayin'...
  12. That red warning is right across the M8 corridor. I used to work in Glasgow and live in Edinburgh and many, many people do. This upgrade to red in the middle of the day long after most people have gone to work is a real problem. I've done that route in horrendous conditions, took 5.5 hrs and there was only about an inch of snow east of Harthill! Given the amount of snow we had overnight and the forecast that today would be even worse and given that last night it was reported that we were "on the cusp" of a red warning, an earlier upgrade might have been prudent. Still, at least the schools had the sense to close and I talked hubby outta going to work. Now we can enjoy the snow instead of worrying.
  13. East Kilbride??? Nae luck. I'm from there. Years ago it got cut off nearly every winter. Get out and stay out until the weather improves is my advice
  14. Also amber warning of disruptive snow now extended further west through the central belt of Scotland to include Glasgow. Previously Livingston was just inside the amber warning area. Looks like Tues/Wed will be nasty through the M8 corridor.
