Good question HC...But, in late 2000, we had snow showers every 10 minutes, on a NE wind. That said, I'd far rather see a WNW gale as per when the Braer went down...At least 30cm!

Just started to snow with us here. Been falling for around 10-15 minutes now and getting heavier.

Temperatures have been around -5'c all day, although just before the snow arrived it has climed to the dizzy heights of -0.5'C.

Although I say it's getting heavier, it's not quite prawn cracker snow, very small flakes, but many off.

It's maybe 15 minutes' away from here, JL...Even a centimetre would do - for now??? :drinks:

I've just been walking in Lomond hills, I'll put up some pics later.

Pretty sure it was an ice day here, certainly the frost didn't melt even in the sun. Temps started to fall away at about 1400.

I can verify - Met Office have just issued a warning http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/gr/gr_forecast_warnings.html?day=1

Between 5-10 cms are expected thisevening and overnight.

These snow showers have just arrived in Northern Moray and should hit the Aberdeen area by 6-7 pm

Presumably from that comma feature that has been sitting above us all day, The NAE (what the BBC use?) have been keen to show it changing direction a little and moving back down over the NE around midnight: see this during the last 2 runs

Ha! Well, that comma has me stumped. It looked like going nowhere near you Pete or Hairy, but has. Feeding off the Moray Firth?

I think we could be on for maybe a -18° - not sure about -20°. Temp now down to -12° in Aviemore at 3pm from -10° at 2pm - that's quite a significant drop in a relatively short period of time.

Are we really entering an "astounding" and "incredible" spell of weather?

Quote:

Is this excitement merited, guys? Haven't we had some "astounding" and "incredible" wx already or is there so much more to come? I take everything with a pinch of grit on the model threads, but when you see this and other quotes, you begin to wonder if it's gonna be historical weather in years to come????

Still baffled by the lack of significance given to the snow potential tomorrow night onwards for here - where is the major snow potential in this chart - Central Scotland or the M4 corridor? post-9298-12620174327113_thumb.png

Steady snowfall here now very small flakes and currently -4c .It came off the Firth very quickly about an hour ago making it dark very quickly after a fine sunny winters day.

You are entitled to post that in the model thread, just like anyone else is - it's a very valid point and may get a few replies :D
