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

Currently on holiday in the Channel Islands but a few posts on Facebook confirms there was snow on the ground at home this morning. So it looks like I have missed the first snow of the season and this seasons new winter tyres missed their first test. Temperature in double figures down here!

Snaw lying here now.

Or rather the wet crappy remains of what fell earlier, having washed away all the road salt, is now solidifying, turning the area into one gigantic ice rink. :diablo:

It snowed here briefly while I was at work enjoying the heavy rain showers. When I left work shortly after 4pm my car was fern iced all over the roof and back. It was down to 0C when I got home so we've got a very icy night ahead assuming we'll see no snow away over here :)

Baltic in Glasgow today as well. It was snowing in the city centre for a short time this morning but it quickly turned to rain or sleet. There was some sleet at about half past 5 as well.

Going by @NUT's post above it's probably even more of a cauld yin now and I need to go to the shops and seriously considering whether I'd rather go hungry tonight.

Probably a little more wintry here towards the edge of Glasgow than in the centre. But mostly wet snow and sleet without ever settling. I didn't manage a peek of the Campsie of Kilpatrick hills - these only reach 400-500m but I'd imagine they'd be quite white.

It's gone now, but there was a little message a few mins ago saying 'SD limit reached' or similar which I understand now. Sanity Dispenser? (Not Sanitary... ok I shut up now)

I got a similar thing a few months ago for losing the plot with some pillock in a thread and got gagged for a bit, so went away and prayed in a cave for a few months. I'm still just as mad now, especially when it comes to dealing with blinkered halfwits but obviously this isn't the place to pour night soil on people.

Oh yeah, it's snowing. And both the Weatherproofs and the WRD4s have been worth their weight this week.

Well, my location avoided the snow showers,:D, - just a waft of cold drizzle this afternoon- but I'm a wee bit unhappy about forum censorship of any mild persuasive contributions ? 

In fact, here, it has been a mainly cold, sunny and frosty day - a day for wrapping up well and making the best of what the weather had to offer.

Fire on now, book out and doggy on knee.

Is the file size too large? I get that if I load up pics from my camera. It needs to be below 7mb?

the file is 5.1mb.... i recall this happening before but not how i fixed it

 

Shrink it a bit more if you can - sometimes the upload process seems to bloat files. Or send a help request.

Cheers HC and CMD you guys were correct......just tried a smaller file and it worked..... A relief to know I will be able to share the pics of the guaranteed epic winter 17/18

Nice to see a wee bit of lying snow in Kinross this evening (has Kinross ever been mentioned as much in a single day on the forum before?).

Just arrived home to a snow shower that was starting to settle but came to nothing in the end. Nice to see :) though!

A very cold day here, top temp of 0c and as soon as the sun went down the temp quickly began to fall. currently -2c and more snow showers predicted for the coming days. brilliant end to Autumn and I hope just a prelude to what winter will bring.

If you're uploading from an I-phone then I'd you choose what photo you want to upload and take a screenshot of the photo on your phone and then upload the screenshot. That works for me, original photo will never upload but as soon as I screenshot the same photo then the screenshot will upload no bother

Just a quick update for this locale, the minor accumulation earlier partially melted and then froze over to a crispy hard slush but various top-up showers after dark have brought the accumulation back up to maybe half an inch. Can't get an accurate depth due to recovering from surgery on Tuesday but will be back out to play soon hopefully

About 2cm of frost on top of an inch of ice here, so grateful for a heated windscreen if I can open the car door :)

The charts are solid this morning, loads going on from start to finish. Setting up nicely for a crash.

The GFS has stuck with a proper Greenland High deep into the run with the ECM late on looking as if it wants to send the high to Greenland too. In between times we've got a mild wet blip on Sunday into Monday with some decent cold on a northerly wind in the middle of next week helped by a relatively non-toppling high out west. Worst case scenario next week is dry, 3C and cold nights. Best case scenario especially for the east is an easterly element in the wind and snow showers.
