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.

    Just heard Forth Bridge to stay closed overnight, Kincardine Bridge now closed and Clackky bridge down to one lane, so traffic going to be a mess tonight

    Yeah they said open Thursday *if* repairs can be completed overnight. It's anyone's guess as to how practical it actually will be to do the repairs tonight though......

    Back to blustery snaw showers now. Still not settling just yet. 1.8C/-1C

    And re the ****trumpets going up the mountains ill-equipped given the weather warnings in place: bill them the mountain rescue costs.

    What's all this activity then? You'd think there's something going on! I don't think anyone should be writing off their snow chances before the event is properly underway (even I'm not ruling out a surprise snowfall here). It certainly will be cold enough for snow at low levels by early tomorrow morning but as always the lottery is where will the showers hit!

    Catch, still keeping an eye on tomorrow night's feature. According to 12z GFS you really want to be West of a line from Edinburgh to Inverness (but not too far west!) to avoid the mild segment. Eastern borders don't look to be affected by the milder air so much as it pulls off into the North Sea as it heads south. I've taken the above from the wet bulb freezing level charts which I always find to be a useful indicator of snow chances at or near to sea level. If the whole thing shifts east a bit it could be game on for many of us....

    I used the word England not English. Just Google it, pretty obvious were the overwhelming majority of those rescue reside. Or speak to anyone that's involved with MR.

    That happened to us early this morning and @Ravelin but once it topped out (at 10.3) it then dropped fairly quickly.

    That's probably true, Norrona2015, given that England's population is ten times that of Scotland, 

    If you were going to bet £20 on the nationality of those rescued it'd have been my choice too, purely down to population numbers, proximity, past experience etc, nothing to do with racism. 

    Oh and all 4 were found safe, 2 airlifted off the summit (congrats on doing that in this weather) and 2 found by mountain rescue on the lower slopes.

    • 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.
