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

This is quite possibly the greatest automated forecast I've seen for my location! I suspect the reality will be different but definitely a (made up) forecast to screenshot :D

My prediction for upper tweeddale:

Tues/Weds 15.6cm

Storm 7cm and a period of sleet as she is overhead

Fri-Sun 4.9cm

:laugh:

Although the storm track is correcting south with every run...

I've been following this polar westerly since it first appeared in the models but only now I'm starting to feel quite excited. The charts have shown a lot of potential for a while and despite the complications of Thursday's low, the models have been quite consistent. Polar westerlies have delivered some memorable snow falls, quite recently in January 2015 with with falls of 5cm and 7cm, though generally they tend to be hit or miss. This looks to be particulary potent and quite prolonged -Met Office have snow symbols from this evening into the early hours of Wednesday and loads of heavy snow symbols aswell. I'm hopeful of at least a healthy covering of up to a couple of inches but given the potential in this set-up I'd be delighted with more than 8cm which would be the best since 2010. The low during Wednesday night is very interesting and one to keep an eye on - if it doesn't track to far north then many of could see another hefty snowfall.

Warnings appear to have been updated.

No Amber. They have upped the impact but reduced the likelihood.

Edit: Snow warning for Thursday also.

17cm?.... I would certainly take that, I'm looking forward to seeing how your predictions pan out, and I certainly won't complain if they're spot on. 

Shall keep you updated with the depths.

If it was doon in London then red warnings would be issued with a COBRA meeting and the Army on standby! :nonono:

Hello all.  Had to chip in with my thoughts...  I'm cautiously optimistic that I might actually see a decent amount of the white stuff ;)  If I get really really lucky I might even need to get my boots out for the first time since 2010! If it all goes pear-shaped then oh well... but I really do have my fingers crossed!

Best of luck to everyone and hope you need your shovels and sledges!

Tim
