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

    Seems to be ahead of schedule too. Was hoping it wouldn't be as wife has parents night in Keith so looking as if her drive back down A96 might be interesting. at least she has my 4x4 today.

    Edit: Actually looking at the WFR-NMM 6z precipitation forecast, this band might be a pre-cursor to the main band arriving around midnight.

    Also, looking snowy on Traffic Scotland webcams up Dornoch way and on the road out to Ullapool.

    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.

    Yes,  this is a different feature to the Low pressure (with its mild sector) tonight. Some interesting lamp post watching coming up.

    Looks like the showers are in a direction where they will miss us now but already a ice rink outside

    Got a call, heavy snow in Keith, parent's night cancelled, wife on way home. "Around and inch and a half" she said, but knowing her that'll likely be an overestimate.

    Whats the snow chances tonight for west lothian?

    Euro4 says poor for us both unfortunately. Met Office forecast seems to agree.

    It's a bit odd here because in a few spots we've got maybe 8cm or so where the snow drifted last night (up against doorways, corners etc) but then only about 4/5cm so far on the ground.

    Started with light to moderate snow in Dyce when I left work and on drive home. What I'd describe as a covering at home, but not enough to be measurable. Currently 0.3C so hopefully it'll not rise too much later as the main band, and warmer uppers, come through. 

    With dry roads the snow was lying but not sticking so the car in front was stirring up the snow in front of me. Quite pretty really in the headlights.

    I believe that was my prediction for you ;-)

    Yet to see so much as a single flake here yet, been dry all day.

    About an inch here in Tarves.  Settling readily on roads and pavements.  Hopefully topped up by snow tonight!

    Seems a bit unreal tbh, it's been 4 years since we've had more than the briefest dusting at the house - I keep peeping between the curtains to check it's still there. We're off for a snowy walk shortly in case we get rained on in the wee hours.

    How far south are we reckoning this blob will get before fizzling out? 

    Also, whats with the feature running down the country later on tonight? I see it on the BBC maps but no mention of it at all in the forecast.

    From here the Ochils will stop it in its tracks. Crystal clear and everything frozen at present.
