We haven't seen a blizzard like this for a few years! Can't walk outside, it's blinding.

Whole family has had fun with pup today who picked up a snowball on her name tag proof of freezing temperature.  Mrs Northernlights took these photos      Clear skies now and -0.8c Quite the Snow Dog!

Still piling up. About to don my ski goggles and head out for a wee wander.

    Balfron is like Auchterarder - it has it's own microclimate.

    Same with Dunblane, it's a whiteout up there, yet 2 miles down the road, it's raining.

    It is trying bless it! But to be honest I think there's more chance of me accumulating 10 winning teams at the weekend than accumulating 10cm of lying snow today! I'm moving to the Lomond hills

    @asjmcguire don't blame the optimist for your own misfortune!! It's a little sleety here at the minute so I'm thinking my timings were a little early, that's all!! Plenty of time left...

    Snowing here and has been since about 3 ish. I got woke up by what sounded like light hail on the windows. I don't usually get precip hitting my side as northish facing. Looked out and there was a dusting this morning, now there is about maybe an inch and it's still coming down, not big flakes but reasonably heavy. Hope we get another blast before the precip goes.

    I was about to post similar view at Haggs. Looks like the M80 is a car park this morning...58aea40c96702_image(2).thumb.jpg.ccb92ae5e79c1beb1435a0e261aa8ae4.jpg

    It's snowing quite nicely at the moment but despite a decent start we couldn't improve on the early covering with the precipitation being too wet until now. There's a covering of slushy snow on the grass and roofs which is better than nothing but it's very underwhelming we couldn't sustain the snow during the hours expected to be best. We have proper snow just now but it's too little too late and it's  disappointing and frustrating to end up with damp surfaces and a slushy covering after the promising start and what could have been if it had kept snowing. It's a familiar outcome, and typical of this winter. It appears the front ended up being further north than expected which changed everything and it seems to have been underwhelming in many parts including areas in the amber zone and with altitude which is a bit surprising. It goes to show how difficult it is to forecast these events even up to the last minute and subsequently it's often difficult to achieve proper, substantial snow when it falls in these islands.

    Snowing heavily again but that brief period of rain/wet snow has ruined it. Slushy, wet mess.

    The focus seems to be further North than forecast so far. Looking at the traffic cams the worst [best] for snow seem to be North Central belt. Borders roads look remarkably clear. Auchterarder, Kelty and Drummochter about the snowiest and bits of mate.

    Here wet snow and slushy covering for me but only sleety rain in town.

    Not mate M80.
