  1. Incredible lows already, in addition to that Kinbrace figure, -18C in Strathdon and -17C Ballater (the latter I think has an official station albeit not an automatic one) Personal Weather Station Dashboard | Weather Underground WWW.WUNDERGROUND.COM Weather Underground provides local & long-range weather forecasts, weather reports, maps & tropical weather conditions for locations worldwide. UKV suggests we're more likely to hit sub -20Cs in Sutherland rather than Aberdeenshire, with temperatures bottoming out fairly soon there, but we'll see...
  2. Amazing stuff, very glad to see Edinburgh and my bit of Fife properly ending up with a pasting. Rare to see such a relatively even distribution of depths like this (southwest Scotland excepted sadly), certainly on a par with 2009/10 and 2010/11 for that. Depths here ended up around an even foot, not a massive amount more after the first streamer last night but certainly can't complain about that! Going to make the most of it today and then I can get back to the weather studies I'm actually meant to be doing tomorrow😂 As for the polar low, if it is indeed that, it looks as though
  3. Certainly not! Fife location LS was at 5 inches at lunchtime prior to some very intense showers, no measurements since but, you can decide, could be 18cm? 😂I also think there's a reasonable shot they get more too
  4. My god what is the blob towards Edinburgh doing, absurd intensity! Still very heavy stuff here, brilliant if this is the end of it.
  5. Amazing stuff hitting Coatbridge now, after a few near misses this is a hell of a thing with a potential direct hit
  6. It's a very confusing radar, that last shower over Edinburgh very sharply darted northwest before it hit us but it does seem most of the movement is NE-SW. I think somewhere in Central Scotland will end up getting a pasting but very fine margins. Sadly we don't have the sort of tool @metallikat34 has for the US, would be bloody useful about now!
  7. It's possibly helping us less in Coatbridge since you're retaining a bit more of it but they do seem to generally be getting through to Glasgow with ease. I would also say - that crazy blob heading through Fife (I'll expect lamp post reports from my mum 😂) is very much heading towards a good chunk of central Scotland...
  8. There's presumably some raw model output that resolves graupel as rain because of the shallow warm layer. But no serious weather watcher would look at the -12C uppers around and say "aye that looks like rain to me"
  9. I was just going to mention this - it does look like they might be lining up quite nicely for a similar line of attack to last night... It chimes with the UKV output too, which has pretty high precipitation totals here through to 2am or so.
  10. There's some hints of convergence in the Forth, notably that it's moving due west while the band just to the northeast is heading southwestwards. Another shower here, I was having a beer in the igloo we built and thought it was a bit graupel-y sounding but deposited a fresh half cm in 5 minutes or so.
  11. I think that's certainly possible, things a bit quiet on our line here with the shift to a more due easterly flow meaning we're having to contend with too much land and not enough Forth to really allow much to get through. An even 23cm here, which I think is a bit better than an average easterly for here, but would be good to round up to an even foot...
  12. A few really intense showers there, think we're probably a couple of inches short of Ruzzi's haul in Caldercruix but still some serious snow. Looks like the flow here is more due east than it's been, which probably is a good sign for most of us given where the convection is lined up.
  13. That's the best blob we've had all day, incredibly heavy and we're only at the southern edge of it. Hopefully a precursor for more.
