    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.

    Looks like we're in the firing line. Lamper time! :yahoo:

    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.

    Somehow this part of Leith managed to catch a talcum powder deep level of snow sometime earlier on (a random shower, if I said it was even 2 millimetres deep I'd be exaggerating). However it has turned the pavements and road surfaces into sheet ice in my local area. As usual not a drop of road grit was deposited despite the forecast.

    Not a huge amount but more than a dusting. A71 seemed to be a nightmare today. Wish I hadn't been working.

    I do worry that the feature tonight may bring rain for quite a few areas it hits rather than snow. If it stays as snow then some areas will likely have an overnight blizzard.

    That's the snaw on now and the wind is up, too - looks like a good wee shower on the go.

    And that's the snaw offski. Another frozen dandruff dusting. Looks like the hills to the north-west took the brunt of it and it was fizzling as it reached us. Typical showery northerly - always a bit hit and miss. On the upside, it's still baltic oot! :good:

    I'm hoping for the latter obviously. Temp out here currently sat at zero but was slightly lower earlier. Probably not make much of a difference though as it's the uppers that will be marginal. I'd rather not wake up to a covering of frozen slush though. 

    Still no real sign of the next front on the radar yet.

    For my location, Aberdeenshire, Moray etc I thought it was around midnight. Unless it's going to be going at a good lick I'd expect to start to see it appear on the radar to the North fairly soon.

    At a guess, around midnight up here.

    I just checked the hi res models and WRF NMM has it at around midnight, ARPEGE at around 2am. Don't think I'll be staying up to see who's right.

    Thanks Ravelin and doctormog. I'm travelling down to Dumfries and Castle Douglas first thing ( work). So I'm guessing about 4 am ish down here? I'm too lazy to look properly. Hopefully will make it that far west and be enough for a snow day.:pardon:

    Wind starting to get up here.  Fingers crossed for a snowy top-up.

    There's a slight dusting on the grass in Central Glasgow, a few heavy showers passed through today but none of them lasted.

    Quite a heavy one this morning about 8:30 or so which began to lie quite quickly, had it lasted longer it would have left a fair dump of snow. 

    Also quite icy here as well. Not too hopeful we'll see any more snow. Everything coming our way seems to fizzle out.

    It's approaching the north coast now. My guess is it's going to be a snow to sleet to rain job so if you have snow now, get out and enjoy. We have snow at the water's edge here which doesn't happen bla bla. Temp just crept up from 0C to 0.5C in the last hour.

    Edit: I misread that. It's dropped to -0.5C, not gone up. Straw clutching!

    It could actually be snow to sleet to rain to sleet to snow for some and just snow for others. Or, knowing my luck a rain to dry scenario here!

    It was dry & clear with the temperature dropping to -1.3C but it has risen to -0.2C now as a fairly heavy snow shower has got going. Wasn't really expecting any more here. And given that this small band of snow has managed to move southwards over the Highlands into the middle of the central belt here in Grangemouth, does that not suggest that the more organised band overnight could do the same? I've watched many forecasts over the last couple of days and the only two that have mentioned it as a possibility was Christopher Blanchett at tea time yesterday and Sean Batty at tea time today although he said it would just be bits of snow breaking off the main band.

    Well if that's it, I thought it would have been bigger!  (as the actress said to the bishop!):D   Seriously I think that should be well fizzled out long before it gets anywhere near here?  http://www.raintoday.co.uk/

    That's just a the edge of the range of the radar and there will (should?) be a load more to the north out of radar range.

    The radar image may give more of a clue http://en.sat24.com/en/eu

    Nah bro, doesn't look like it will be south enough, will veer east central belt ish.

     

    Have a covering now, just shows 'get the cold in first' etc.

    Admittedly it's a good wind direction for me but all the good showers during the day were non-lying snow/sleet.

    1 decentish shower at 3pm helped and then just some tiny flurries have all added up to make everything look snowy (even if the depth is below 1cm, even less than 0.5cm)

    Lethal out, i almost went flying as tried to open the bin which was frozen solid and feet went when i pulled hard. Managed not to die, thankfully.

    Currently -0.1c

    Will no doubt still get killed by the hills but looks great on the sat image....always love when the doc appears....will never forget that Saturday afternoon as he drew our attention to a feature in the north Sea that would become 28 hours of continuous snow over on TWO back in 2010

      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.
