  1. April really is the cruellest month sometimes, especially for east coasties when these highs set up in spring which they inevitably do. Can recall one day in the 1970's when the west coast was hitting 21C and Edinburgh was in 5C and haar. And that'll be the next thing, the bloody haar.
  2. Currie / Balerno right back where they belong this winter ! And snowman time surely...
  3. Tell them to get started on the snowman, just the right claggy consistency for a big one. Assuming you can get back up Lanark Road of course ! Edit: heavy enough that it's *just *starting to lie on surfaces here, 125ft a.s.l., all depends now if this intensity keeps up or slackens off.
  4. Terrible waste of perfectly guid falling snaw here in Leith. Belting down but chances of accumulation are close to zero (and I don't want a pile of freezing grey slush anyway)
  5. Aye, alternating rain, sleet and snow just now in Leith, looks like the cold undercut from the North is underway. No chance of it lying here but up your way and round about then it must be game on again. Radar isn't that intense but on and on it goes, day 3 of this cold garbage.
  6. Great to hear that story @More Snow enjoy the buckie ! Been a weird spell this last 12+hours or so. Pressure charts and wind direction both saying central scotland is in some kind of east-north-east flow. But precipitation (those recent beefy showers an hour or two ago over Glasgow) has been moving from south-west to north-east, seemingly almost 180 degrees to the apparent "flow". Any technicians in here got any idea how that works ?
  7. Having just been sent out to get an Easter Monday curry (WTF but great idea by my wife) I was parked in sight of Arthurs Seat. Snow is visibly lying on the back of Salisbury Crags which is about 550ft above sea level. Street level down here its alternating between rain/sleet and big downdrafts of wet flakes, thoroughly unpleasant evening. Now for the curry !
  8. Raw, damp and cold in Leith. A few visible snow flakes appearing in the mix every now and again...suggestive that higher parts of the city and beyond could see something sticking later on, albeit more like wallpaper paste for some. Was watching the groundsman give Hillside Bowling club it's first spring grasscut a couple of hours ago, doubt there was much to trim, there's been little grass growth here in contrast to more recent winters where local parks have seen some pretty lush growth into Feb/March.
  9. I overlook Hillside Bowling Club, the opening spring day seems as far away as ever.
  10. That last snow shower was nice, local street is snow-streaked by the wind and it looks like one or two more coming this way from the ENE.
  11. Sounds about right, even allowing for variation these home observation stations are showing how cold it is city wide, and that strong east-wind is a killer. Airport is reporting a windchill -of -6c.
  12. Decent proper snow shower on here just now, blowing about the streets like a scene from a cold-war film.
  13. Don't get me started. The club and the players have given up for this season (again), so I'm reciprocating in kind. Be doing well to hold onto top-six at this rate. Rugby not really my game but opted to meet some pals in a pub this afternoon and watch Scotland and then Ireland out of that bloody cold !
  14. Radar looks like all of east/central Scotland is generally under the same kind of very-light precipitation, certainly a few flakes blowing about in the wind here. But there's bigger blobs out in the North Sea so maybe we'll just have to wait a bit for the convection machine to get going. Semi-optimistic :-)
