Should be a cracking day today with a weak ridge before the monster hammers us. Going to get out and enjoy the snow... oh wait though, HC, you didn't get any, and to make matters worse, getting OMG type texts from friends and rellies all over the UK saying 'we've got 18 inches here, you must be buried!' <phone gets interred in a quiet corner of the garden>

Is this due to drop on Sunday, or Monday?

I finally worked out in my 20s that I have a funny reaction to really big shifts in pressure: I feel weepy. Not depressed, not miserable, just a strong urge to put my head in my hands and sob... doesn't matter whether the weather is improving or stormy or what, just any big shift in pressure and there I go.

So it would be useful to know when the Human Barometer should get her dry handkerchiefs ready on standby...

This is more like it: clear blue skies, the sun rising, a westerly breeze, 1.2c so colder than of late.

any Edinburgers on-line to report any snow retention in the higher/south parts of the city ? Can't gauge from Leith if The Braids snow bowl has held onto its sledging piste. I'm optimistic because it faces north at 500 ft ASL and *should* have collected more yesterday. BUt I can't tell from here so looking for any proxy report from the higher parts. Thanks...

All things being equal might just squeeze out another sledging day !

going to Aviemore in a couple of weeks ... looks like the forthcoming changeable spell will provide at least as much mountain snow as it takes away. That's fine, there's no "snow killer" on the horizon so ski-ing still looks assured into Feb.

Well, the view from the top windows says the north-facing Braids slopes are white - but whether that's sledgeable or slush-puppy I don't know!

Thanks for the snow report. Might be spring snow up there but it'll be good enough. Cheers !

I think the word 'mild' might be an overstatement for the coming few days:

Woke up to a very slight dusting on the foot or more that was already there. Absolutely lovely morning here. Crisp and blue skies. Downside to the weather is Stirling RFC match is off today.

Watching with interest the Atlantic storm winding herself up. Surprised that the Met Office haven't made more of it. They obviously aren't worried about it's impact.

Sun seems to have a bit of oomph to it now. Was horrendous this morning i.e. really icy but that's all melted

Oops, you'll need to turm yer heid to view him. Or is there a way I can post it normal side up?

Gorgeous here too. Lovely crispy snow but thawing a bit in direct sunshine. 3C and sunny.

Anyone happen to come into Dundee this morning by Riverside? Some enterprising youngsters at the Technology Park had been busy building several erotic snow art forms to say welcome to Dundee. Sadly by the time I went past again heading out of town the sun had been at work and the main parts had collapsed.sorry.gif Or perhaps someone easily offended knocked them down.
