  1. I fear that the band is now too far north and east for us in North Lanarkshire to get anything out of it :-( I expect that when it stalls it will head south east missing us again. I hope we get something out of it as I told everyone I know that we would get at least a covering from this one (my family and friends seem to think I'm sort of weather expert lol!).
  2. It's ever so light here in Coatbridge but rain at the moment, I think it's about 3c, hopefully it will cool down a bit soon.
  3. Yeah I'm worried about this afternoon's wind and tomorrow's rain. 60-100mm? That's going to cause a lot of problems I would think.

    Unfortunately its rain here in Coatbridge at the moment. The trees are all dripping so thaw has started.

    We seem to be lucky for a change here in Coatbridge in regards to the snow showers. It also seems to be not melting when it stops too :-)

    This was my street at 8.30 this morning. All this within 10 mins of heavy snow. All gone now though.

    You wait all night for the group of showers out in the Atlantic to reach you only to dissapear as they reach near you (thankfully I did not stay up), then just a few minutes ago a shower grows out of nowhere and its..... yip of rain! If I strained my eyes enough I might have seen a wee bit of sleet but it was mostly cold rain, this despite there still being frost on the ground. I think it's time for me to give up haha. Rob, Coatbridge.
  8. Met Office just published an advisory for heavy thundery showers from 3pm for Central and Southern Scotland.

    Rain all the way at my location just to the east of Glasgow. It's strange how I hear (from Facebook) that people near the coast are getting some snow yet a location like mine, 20+ miles inland at 100m keeps on getting rain! I must live in some sort of warm pocket micro climate or something haha

    Latest band was an all rain affair again here in Coatbridge. I now give up and are looking forward to summer. Here is hoping for some early warm sunny spring weather :-)

    Oh well I stayed up to 2am waiting for the front to arrive and after giving some snow to Ireland when it arrived here in North Lanarkshire it broke up and what fell from the sky was light.... yes rain! I thought when it arrived the temperature would fall but it actually rose and is now 5c. It seems we can't win at all this winter. Anyway off to bed. I have a lot of explaining to do in the morning as I insured all my local Facebook buddies that they would wake up to a blanket of snow.

    I see that the Met Office has issued a Yellow warning for snow for Northern Ireland and Western Scotland from 9pm tonight. As for me here I've just come back from a walk from Airdrie Town Centre and it was sleet there, snow on the outskirts and then rain by the time I got back here to Coatbridge.
