Just a dusting here in Carrbridge. Fell during the night. Not sure if it was pre- or post midnight.

Something incoming from the north now though, and tomorrow looks lively.

Will that incoming from the north actually get to carrbridge or Aviemore it seems to fizzle out before inverness

Good road trip up to Fort William. Snow from Crianlarich northwards until you reached the coastal plain.

Right just for fun here are some personalised snowfall predictions - these are for accumulation by the end of Wednesday and do NOT include Wed night/Thursday's potential storm.  @aggy 5cm  @M

Did it snow at home in your absence à la 101?

A nice crisp day. Blue sky mainly, with some Sc over the hills, temp around 2C and the slightest of breeze from the NW.

Have to admit I'm a wee bit scared to view the radar!

Got a response from Met Office 

It wasn't a white Christmas at Glasgow. 

He said nearest weather station is Bishopton just recorded rain/drizzle.

Gutted and annoyed as if parts of Glasgow seen snow surely their station got one flake!!!

There's a reason for them saying it has to snow at the AIRPORT...

Anyhoo, it's drizzly here at 2C after a lovely cold sunny day. Looking forward to a drive south through the mayhem tomorrow.

A sequence of photos showing the build up of a band of snow from the north culminating in moderate settling  snow now at 1.5c .They also show Ben Wyvis and I think the windfarm at Brahn. 20171226_094702.thumb.jpg.0a4eb53926d8c8e7d6466c0af3b73b93.jpg20171226_104550.thumb.jpg.2d85b17cde1adc4ae4e4e05541a36bbc.jpg20171226_104602.thumb.jpg.1d61e36aedc7edff2c944dd7c568434a.jpg20171226_104716.thumb.jpg.7d4fbfde03b3970a098527ae74d05ebd.jpg20171226_120425.thumb.jpg.52f36c9b82573e336a4b768e925b8693.jpg20171226_140859.thumb.jpg.6903aae9cb6c15d0b78ddc7f14f58f71.jpg

Awww, perfect!

I was planning on heading north tomorrow for a walk in the hills but looks like south is the better option. Biggar looks to have caught a good dump of snow too so perhaps tomorrow will be a Tinto kind of day :)

The Lomonds got an inch or so and made a nice walk this morning.

Definitely come south. I'm only six miles from Biggar and it's all frozen now for tomorrow.

Yeah, was down that way today, the Lanark-Biggar area up towards the Pentlands looks to have caught a few hours of snow in the early hours, although not especially deep.  

Was slightly surprised to wake up about 5 ish this morning and see everything white - snow and fog.  It was snowing just before midnight, but dissolving straight into the ground.  First lying snow this winter in this part of North Lanarkshire, although only 2 or 3 cm.  The Clyde is very high after yesterday’s deluge so there’s odd bit of minor flooding too.  All now icing up, of course.

Neither the airport nor Bishopton are in Glasgow. The Bishopton station isn't even in Bishopton, what a farce:

More cold rain coming my way. 

Petulant strops aside I think it's only a matter of time until us snow starved people get something. Friday has been popping up as a snow chance for a while now, so we'll see. At the very least some reasonable snow on my local hill would be much appreciated as I've got my kids down for their second and my late Christmas from tomorrow for four nights.

Morning Happy Snow covered Campers! Well, would you believe it, after all my whinging aboot nae snaw what did I wake up to the morning? Yes, gentle reader, a wee coating o' the white stuff! Just a wee one mind, but nevertheless, SNAW! Will try and get some pictures later on. Very cloudy now and it looks like the mainland is getting a guid dump so they'll be happy in Kyle!

Just checked the forecast for the next few days, on the 30th XC has temp s of 6c with winds of 39 mph gusting to 64mph. Met check and Netweather both going for 2-3c and light winds of about 4-9mph. Such a big difference there, so I'm aff tae check the charts noo!
