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

Last night forecast for my area was dry,  at 6.00 am this morning it was very showery from midday and now for the afternoon it is dry. Good job ignored the  early  morning one and turned some of the straw  this morning. Grr!!!! Nowcasting is the thing to do although there are some shower clouds developing now. Warm at 19c

Line  of showers on either side of us now, so far we are in the dry slot and round baler working in straw.

Finally got a heavy shower about an hour later with a further heavy burst about two  hours ago.About one third of field baled mostly the hardest areas to dry again round the outside and next to a wood so thats the positive. Should dry quickly again in the right conditions.Sunday onwards looks better with a breeze which should aid drying if there are not too many showers.Calm,  damp and currently 16.5c.

In the last week here we've had just 3.6mm of rain and an average maximum temp of 20.2C. Today and tomorrow look as if they'll be very similar again. It's a whole different world down here.

good evening everybody, I have been trying to make the move to Scotland for almost a year now and yesterday I made the 8 hour drive from Matlock Derbyshire to look at a house out on its own between Rothienorman and Turrif... its 150m above sea level and given its rural location I'm hopeful this will during winter months provide me with the snow fix I need, anybody know of this area and the chances for good snow during winter?? move date is still to be fixed but it should be first week of October or middle of October... I hope I can join you all in this thread during winter and summer to have some chats banter and plenty of fun..

At last, you seem to have been around most of Scotland in your search for a house. Sounds like a reasonable chance for snow in that area if we get a decent winter. You should be able to catch anything coming in from the NW through to the East, much like me.

With regard to snowfall 162 m in Aberdeenshire is probably as good as 350m down here in Derbyshire. Good luck with the move.

Hammered down yesterday evening, steady rain through the night and slowly eased off in the last couple of hours. No more ketchup forecast today.

Just the same here with a few patches of blue sky now .Currently 17c.

Very Autumnal looking this morning with the fog and drizzle and nearly all the leaves on the  trees turning fast .Seems very early is the good weather in  spring the reason?

Morning, the new Crossing is open, anyone going across today or tomorrow? The weather is looking fine for the ceremonies at the weekend, some local East Lothian Brownies have tickets for the Queensferry Experience, when pedestrians can walk across. Will it truly be wind proof and not close in high winds? http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=news;storyid=8398;sess=
