Snowing in Motherwell at 1235.

Yes, just melting into the ground though.  Seems that bit milder than Tuesday.  Decided yesterday just to stay put at home today on the strength of the forecast/warning - wonder if the heavier stuff lurking out west will justify it?

Both BBC and MetO think that's going to be heavy rain for me.

Figures.

Yes - they have been getting a pasting since this morning and it looks as though they will continue to do so this afternoon.

We seem to be living off the scraps currently down here. :rofl:

That big blob out to the west isn't going to worry anyone round these parts unless the track changes. Hopefully it'll veer SE'ly as it hits the West Coast. Other stuff starting to appear on the radar though so a waiting game...... Hopefully it'll all merge into one huge band as it approaches.

Bright sunshine in Greenock but very heavy snow reported at home with that next big blob looking like it will be on a similar course.

This photo captures the epic snowfall in St Andrews this morning (you may need to stare at the grass). I can only hope it’s this good back in Broughty Ferry. :D

What's the track on that Ross?  As Shugee says, easterly or ESE'ly?

It's been pretty much due Easterly so far so some has even made it here. Hopefully for may it stays that way.

The gaps in band are starting to fill in with a slight ese movement.  Could be quite a clump of showers from the section just north of northern Ireland if it can get a bit more organised, heading for the Amber zone too.

Wee boys school got closed. Took me an hour to get from Kinross to Kelty to get him. M90 north and south was a nightmare. This is how much we had since 7. 

Also had to abandon my car and get my friend to bring us home in the Land Rover 🙈

I just had to pick up my sick daughter and take her back to Darvel.

I would describe the driving conditions as brutal.

Sweet baby Jesus of Nazareth!!!! Now that is what I like to see! That is going to be chaos! Be keeping a close eye on it as it splits in two and snakes North and South of me. :rofl:

Three hours of total whiteout carnage hopefully.
