    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.

    From looking at the rain radar - and outside - we got sod all from that northerly blast. Oh well hope it's the start of something for the coming months or are we going to get 6 weeks of +4 and rain to pay for having had a sprinkling of snow. :)

    The weather app (Weather Timeline) I use on my phone is using the DarkSky API for it's forecasts, I don't know where that data comes from (but it is generally more accurate than both the NMM and the GFS - for short term forecasts). It currently has us down for a brief mild spell and then back into the freezer. I shall await the actual conditions with interest.

    Not seeing anymore -40s on the T500 ensembles though trending around -25. T850 tending around -5

    PS - obviously - it's in a world of it's own - but does anyone have a chart for this ensemble which has air pressure so low it's off the graph?!

    (it looks like it's either 950 or 945mb..... :shok:)

    Woke up and had to look outside.... wet. Mild sector in its fully glory, temp 2.6C. Most frustrating thing is that it's forecast to get back down to around freezing later and stay there until Sunday.

    Yeah now that we have the snow - the temperature is shooting up here and is forecast to hit about 3C before it drops back down to freezing in the afternoon.

    Seems the Mets yellow warning was sufficient. Windy with a bit of snow which should be gone over the weekend. Next week looks mild.

    Knew that'd happen.  All looked great until it got half way down the Grampians then this big hole appeared.  Gets by here and it fills in.  Not a flake overnight and now almost clear

    About 1cm snow at the moment. Dog awake at stupid o'clock. He's now outside rolling in it and I can't get him back in. Strong wind, not a day for jammies and wellies. Leaving the dog to it, got kettle on!

    Will be a lot of drifting higher up and away from the coast. Stay safe and keep warm everyone!

    Fairly rapid thaw on at the moment as temp up to 4c. Should start to drop soon. Don't care though as I've had some snow. My only regret is not seeing it fall! :oops:

    EDIT: Just had the pleasure of changing my signature!

    Looks like the heaviest band passed through Dundee so (for once!) I was in the right place at the right time! You can see from the Leuchars readings that it then fed through to NE Fife. http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/weather/current/EGQL.html

    It started as snow here!  I looked out at 2.15am and it was blowing a gale with heavy snow.  About an hour later it had turned to rain and now it's mostly all melted.  Oh well.  At least I got to drive in snow yesterday evening.

    Temp up to 3.5c. Looks like we might have had a snow shower overnight but it's hard to tell as it's disappearing quickly. Met Office observations locally suggest it snowed around 4am.

    Couple of days of clear, cold northerly fare and then I can start looking at the charts for further disappointment potential.

    Looking like it's going to be nearer the end of the month now before we can even hope for something similar as nothing remotely promising on the models in the coming week to 10 days. 

    Snow shower currently swirling around here in a strong wind,  but still 2.3C so struggling to lie.

    Decent covering of snow all the way from Dundee to St Andrews. Definitely got lucky last night. Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky!
