    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.

    Very blustery here, blue skies and cloud scudding over at high speed. Very occasional sleet/hail showers. Not getting excited at the prospect of snow as I'll only be disappointed!

    It's very funny "Oh no. I had a few too many cocktails at the Christmas party and I think I smooched @tay_road_bridge! #embarrasing"  

    could be a bit lively early Friday too

    Been out with the dog and it's very windy but a few spots of rain mixed in. Not all that hopeful for much in the way of snow here.

    Finally some showers have started turning sleety although surprisingly mountains still don't have very much cover

    The closer we get to this 'event' the more I reckon I'll be lucky to see any lying snow. Current forecasts are a big downgrade on yesterday and apart from a short window overnight Euro4 doesn't show much for here! Standard westerly behaviour really so not sure why I let myself believe otherwise :D

    Agreed 101 - just looks dry and cold for us sadly - usual northerly fare

    Heavy showers all day round here - inner Moray Firth - becoming increasingly wintry and the temp's dropping too. Anomolous spike of 9C very early this morning, now between 2C and 3C mostly.  It was very gusty overnight too - lots of leaf litter redistribution this morning.

    Heck and gosh - work stood down due to unsuitable weather so I should get to enjoy the next few days after all :yahoo:. That'll ensure we get lots of sleet...

    That's better. Air must be getting colder now as that last shower did leave the hills with more of a covering. Getting there

    A definite downgrade on the Met Office updates IMBY this afternoon with more emphasis on words like 'sleet' and 'wintry showers' - precipitation symbols on the graphical forecast have lower % chance precipitation, sparser showers and even rain at times overnight :wallbash: How are the dew points looking for later?

    I've revised my expectations to 0cm lying snow at home in Motherwell once again, and maybe 2-5cm on higher ground like East Kilbride.  Hoping to be proved wrong though.

    I commute daily between Glasgow and Edinburgh, I wonder what the journey will be like via train tomorrow and Friday? Hopefully there won't be much disruption on the lines. Imagine having to be put up in a hotel for the night, the horror ;) seriously though, does anyone else share the same concern?

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
