    Wintry showers continuing in the west this afternoon but dry in the east. Late evening and overnight a band of heavier snow crossing the north of the PKC area and clearing by 02:00 giving accumulations of 1-3cm at low levels and 5-15cm above 300m level. Minimum overnight rst of -5.0c for north and -4.0c for south leading to ice formation in all areas.

    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.

    Not long back from Glasgow, journey only about an hour longer than usual due to the conditions, so no bad going. Was pretty tasty at points but nothing too tricky. Passed the jackknifed lorry that was partially blocking the southbound side near Ralia

    Back here at the house, about 10cms of very powdery cover, nothing spectacular but obviously welcome nonetheless. Maxed at -2c and awaiting whatever the north is sending..

    Just had a couple of hefty showers there but not on long enough to leave anything worth talking about. Still very cold though, blue skies coming through again!

    Nice! Looking forward to seeing how much they miss me by!

    Anyone fancy a wee game? Radar screenshot of the closest passing shower without anything falling at your location :D

    Very cold still just above freezing and snow contiues to sift across the fields in the fresh wind. Noticed on the radar a more organised band of showers/feature coming into the north of Scotland this falls as sleet at sea but snow overland. There also appears to be a change to snow showers over the sea on its back edge or is the radar playing up. Could be some really cold air coming in tonight if its correct and it will get very frosty

    Seriously not amused. Scotland is obviously in the wrong place and we need to move it!

    New Zealand would be nice lol.

    Mostly bright today, temp in car reading +1.5C. A few white flakes now and again, settling on frozen ground. Breezy but not too bad, in all a pleasant winter's day. Dog a bit hyper in the brief snow showers.

    More organised snow showers heading for Glasgow and Ayrshire over the next hour? Just in time for rush hour. I've watched that mass on radar since it formed ours ago and still seems to be of good intensity!

    Liking the look of this. Been watching it and it looks a direct hit for my location.

    Nice line of more organised precipitation coming down from the North now.  Could be nice for the commute home for those in NE.

    At least everything is white, although was hail for most of it. Wasn't nice to be out in!

    Temp went from 2.3c to 0.1c. 

    A pitiful amount but at least when it melts i won't be upset
