The snow for the incoming low tomorrow doesn't look that heavy to me according to the latest GFS

When I do my forecasts for my weather page on Facebook I seldom use the GFS precip charts. I use the Euro4 and the WRF-NMM via Meteociel.

I'm sure others would disagree but I only use the GFS for broad brushstrokes on here, not for my Borders forecasts. :)

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

AMBER WARNING INCOMING. :yahoo:

Aye very good, just a pity it's 12 hours too late! I've had countless messages from friends saying they're stuck in gridlocked roads, shocking motorway conditions, I've had a few photos sent of cars off the road, one on its side (all from around this area, maybe 3 mile radius). It's an absolute shocker. I mentioned about an amber warning the other day and in the Model Thread and I honestly cannot fathom as to how else they expected this to pan out. It was clearly not the bog standard typical polar westerly. Warnings for tonight will be too late, people are already stuck on the roads, stuck at work etc and many won't get home from work either. Really really poor!!

About an inch of snaw overnight and settling readily from around midnight onwards - a good start. Regular top-ups from the heavy showers birling though.

Roads not clever this morning and not helped by ****trumpets who don't moderate their speed in the midst of the temporary whiteoots. Total nuggets.

Temperature currently -0.2C/-1C and the snaw's back on.

Braw!
