    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.

    You're getting a better share of the showers then we are by the looks of it. I can see the murk to the southwest but we're just out of the firing line.

    1st image is up behind my house. Quite snowy with a touch of height.

    2nd is looking north and you can just about make out a very snowy start of the Southern uplands but a snow shower was moving in so obscures it somewhat.

     

    3rd image is the sunset in Roma, Australia (Queensland i think) which my sister took. Still 36c there at 7:30pm. Had a high of 41c. She loves it so idk how she is (was) from Scotland!

    A shower just before 6 this morning gave a covering here (maybe a centimetre) not a lot but it's something. Not half cold outside!

    I'm hoping tonight will prove better for us.   All in all, after the mild blip (?)  although looking dry it will be very cold under the high.   I think us Scots will have to be a little more patient before we see any worth while snow.  Looks as if it will be quite a lengthly cold snap though.:)

    The stuff lying outside the now doesn't look like going anywhere as well with temps at or just above freezing for the next few days.

    Lengthy cold snap? Next week looks mild again to me :cc_confused:   Or do we have different definitions of mild perhaps?

    Jinxed the bloody showers for here by telling you lot I have 1cm - nothing but the odd flurry in the last couple of hours!  Gonna get out later...

    Overall this next 10-14 days looks like a cold spell but Sunday-Tuesday does look way too mild for snow, all will be lost (apart from maybe for NS).

    However it will be a cold high after that by the looks of it

    Maybe so, but I'd still think most people would consider temperatures hovering around zero from Thu onwards as cold. Assuming it doesn't change.

    Got a text message a few minutes ago, Flood Alert issued for the Moray and Aberdeenshire coasts. High tides and strong winds by the looks of it.

    Mild  for a few days I was thinking.   After that though, the cold under that high ( if it doesn't change) should last for a bit.

    Off work due to childcare issue so took the wife into work in Kilmarnock. Roads utter chaos. The Firestone Winterhawks didn't miss a beat however. I really rate them as a winter tyre. Current view but there seems to be a break in the showers for here after this one.

    That is the system that will be very interesting to watch.   Same thing happened a few years ago regarding a wave being pushed down the North Sea and again it was concerning.   However, as it turned out,  sea level only rose about 3 feet giving a few splashes over some sea walls around  the south east.  I assume most will be hoping for the same outcome.

    Nice one! We just missed the worst of that trough so only got some light snow from it. Need to let @CatchMyDrift know about snow in Kilmarnock since its so rare...

    Aye ok. That's a week away though, so the models are still making it up for fun.

    Latest Met Office warning is pretty uninspiring for anything round these parts from tonight's feature:

    "Ice is expected to form on untreated surfaces on Thursday night and last into Friday morning. In addition, some outbreaks of sleet and snow are likely to run quickly southwards on Friday morning, chiefly affecting parts of northern and eastern England, clearing the extreme southeast by late morning. This may give local accumulations of one to two cm and add to icy conditions in places".

    Euro4 doesn't offer much hope either as it has the feature disappearing off into the North sea long before it would reach here. 

    Running out of snow 'potential' from this spell of weather!

    Snow is on at the moment in Leadhills, it's actually quite bright just now at Glencoe but there is a wall of black to the North coming this way!  Had feared the new webcam would have put a curse on the snow at Leadhills, lol! View it at http://www.winterhighland.info/cams/lowtherhill/

    Was just looking at that webcam to, Glad they now have one up. No snow  here in the Peak District yet, Some sleet early'r has turned back to rain but temps are steadily falling so fingers crossed.
