Still really mixed signals - BBC/MetO not really going for anything more than "some snow" whilst GFS going full blown snowmageddon.

:confused:

"heavy wintry showers"

"snow accumulations even at sea level"

For the Met-O that's a full scale ramp.

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

An insight in to a snow lover texting their partner when away from home "Snowed overnight.." Me "Cool, how much??" "Not sure.." Me " send a picture of the bins" "Why the f##k

indeed CMD.... even @101_North

 

From past experience I'm expecting initial rain showers, then the snow showers will largely avoid me, the low will eventually track too far north or south and then right at the tail end of the cold snap I'll be granted a dusting :D

Anyone know what the forecast for Scotland is for next week then?    They are all too busy greetin' in their cornflakes over what appears to be the crash and burn of their snow spell in all of the overnight models?

I can only find one reference to us amongst the tears and that still seems to be on track?:search:

It's a full on cult-esque mass suicide in the MOD thread this morning. Still looking like the Thursday potential storm is staying on a more northern track, for the moment. Means more of a chance for snow for us lot, but wet and windy for those south of the border, hence the toys being sent flying.

I don't post in it in general, skim read it for the ones who know what they're on about and skip a lot of it. It's a shame as there are a hardcore who know a lot but a lot who talk the talk but that's about it.

FAX charts look interesting, plenty going on with troughs and occlusions so it shouldn't be dry:

The Euro4 is coming into range for Tuesday soon, should be plenty to start a full scale rampede.

I'm excited for everyone for Tuesday and Wednesday too, and the showers won't even reach here :)

I'm banking on the Weds-Thurs storm to do it for me (plus quite a few others hopefully).

i think you will see snow falling CMD.... the heaviness and frequency of precipitation coupled with a decent wind by Tuesday should see some flakes make it over but probably no accumulation until the storm.

I like your optimism..."until the storm" :)

Pretty like much of the programmes on bbc these days. Does anyone actually watch the crap they broadcast as drama? (Sorry...)

 

Much the same as yourself HC, I watch some of their documentaries, that's about the extent 

As always in these westerly set-ups, for up here, Glen Shiel looking great. Any room at the inn?

Looking like the western ski resorts, Nevis and Glencoe, will pick up a good dumping of snow this week, if it doesn't all get blown back off. Not sure they'll see many running lifts though. Anyone else who has the freedom to head to either when the weather calms down could be in for a real treat.

I had 7 days straight skiing up Nevis Range from the 1st - the wind has blown it about this week so hoping the gullies are filled now and any new snow settles well so when the wind finally goes we can get back up to play.  Such a different winter than last years mehness!!

Tuesday is looking incredible here - Metoffice keep ramping up the snow more and more every couple of hours.

Heavy snow and a howling wind - proper Mid-Winter Scottish weather! :cold::yahoo:

I work backshift in East Kilbride. I start at 6pm tomorrow and finish at 2am. Looking at the forecast I may struggle to get home to Barrhead :cold:

I’d take that in a heartbeat! :D

As Catch says the Met O mentioning snow accumulating even at sea level is very unusual, that should definitely count as ramping. :D

Very interesting few days coming up, I feel projections for Thursdays storm will change several times yet before we have an idea of its impact.
