    This will get lost amid the avalanche of posts....scuse the pun. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN FOR ONLY THE SECOND TIME IN 7 AND A BIT YEARS I HAVE A MEASURABLE SNOWFALL!  Only a cm mind but a landmar

    Let's just start with the money shot - both the ECM and the GFS agree that, as of Wednesday 12pm, the upper air temperatures will be sitting at -14/-15C over most of Scotland, the wind will be pretty

    We had a bit of a struggle to get to the hospital this morning, the bus was 20 mins late and the taxi got fed up waiting and had gone. But we got there and hubby had the op, it's not cancer it's just

    That’s the part that had me worried ?‍♀️ It honestly feels like we don’t exist in there! 

    We don't exist. We're just figments of each others' imaginations.  See, if you close your browser, I no longer exist.  (Better that way too :crazy:)

    It's ok, most folk in here are probably real too - it's just me and a couple of others that drift in and out occasionally...)

    Gees, it's getting busy in here. I'm not expecting anything over here in the west but hope you guys in the east enjoy your snow. To be honest it's Baltic here already. Cold and dry will do me fine.

    I'm slap bang in the middle of the yellow warning area for Tuesday but the MetO weather app has a 60% of light snow for a couple of hours that morning. I know these things are hugely inaccurate,  but it's easy to see why people might not take warnings seriously when theres such an obvious disconnect.

    Despite the *possible* blizzrd in the South of Englandshire the snow maps show quite clearly that due to the probability of the north sea snow machine driving heavy showers in all week both E Scotland and NE England still end up with more snaw overall :D

    The Tuesday warning area just looks stupid - it includes the Black Isle but just a thin strip of east coast Sutherland and Easter Ross and not Caithness at all. That just doesn't match any snow forecast I can see. Another obvious disconnect is between the MetO and reality.

    A sift of the archives reveals that the last time Scotland had -15c uppers from an easterly was back in Feb 1991. I wasn't living here then so this will be something new if ECM and GFS around 120hrs are to be believed.

    Better stick to this thread, many of the posts in the model thread are mostly SE England related as if the rest of UK don’t exist. Someone in there said that Scotland won’t do very well lol. Perth will do very well in my opinion so have yer shovel ready :)

    I thought I read that as well but was is not in the general sports thread?

    @Hawesy when’s ur infamous snaw prediction game starting ??

    Not before Monday. Or perhaps Sunday night if I have a few drinks....:D

    When I started off this nonsense I expected it to be a once or twice a winter thing. No one warned me this might happen!

    We need the return of @LomondSnowstorm, he knew what he was talking about. In comparison, I’m a total charlatan. What happened to LS anyway, moved to Sweden as I recall?

    my guess is LS actually found a girl and lost his virginity and realised weather was actually boring when yer a young lad..... i expect him back in 15 or so years time :whistling:

    his knowledge was incredible..... however plenty of you guys are top notch including Lorenzo who has gone all Stephen Hawkings with his brilliant strat knowledge

    i told everyone at work 3 days ago about this so im going to look quite clever as long as does not go titticus verticus now

    I posted in here a month ago about the extreme weather enthusiast dream...live in Scandinavia in Winter, fall in love for free accommodation purposes and you get a proper Winter.

    Live in Miami in Summer, fall in love for free accommodation purposes and you get a proper Summer/chance of tornados and a hurricane or two.

    Come back to Scotland in Spring for four seasons in one day and also come back in Autumn to see the leaves changing colours and the chance of a windstorm later on with a funny name. (bawbag for example) 

    @LomondSnowstorm is living the dream! :rofl:

    1991 was nothing special in Eastern Scotland though it was cold and there was some snow. Jan 1987 was much better and even Feb 1986 was snowy here although very cold but dry down South.
