    yup correct an English thing, there are updates sent to local governments in Scotland  though which are pretty detailed forecasts...... 

    We have the Traffic Scotland Twitter, so it's all good.

    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

    Yes they can HC, that's why they've all come inside to stay warm and cosy

    At first glance you might think this chart is the 850hpa temps, it's dewpoints!!

    This week ahead looks ridiculous. If this isn't the Big Bad Dump of Doom then it's never happening. Crazy charts for the east and hopefully the west too, possibly 5 to 7 days of snow or snow showers with a strong wind to drift the snow over the hills.

    Hence your confidence? ;)  Hum... sounds interesting and promising!

    Tim

    :rolleyes:correct Tim that and the actual charts in front of us and the whole lack of marginality.... everything is in our favour for once..... theres always a chance the heaviest of showers always miss us and you get a bit of a let down but that seems unlikely or of course that convectivity is less than we anticipate which is also unlikely.....

    It's looking like a week where we run out of superlatives. Bonkers, crazy, mental, insane, nuts, ridiculous, preposterous. Unless the models fall apart very soon we're on for the most extreme snow event for many years. If the charts are right we're talking feet of snow for some lucky person. 

    I fully expect the Express to come up with some new ones.

    Morning all!

    Agree with @CatchMyDrift - this really does have the potential to be one of the all time great Winter/Spring weeks in Scottish history! :D

    The East is seriously going to get buried! Can see Edinburgh airport struggling big time by midweek to get flights In and out!

    Wednesday looks an insane day for Forth/Clyde streamers! Honestly what a Winter this has been and continuing into Spring! :cold:

    Enjoy yer Sunday! (Stunning day today)

    Streamers not steamers - plenty of those all year round.

    That top 850hpa temp chart is wonderful. My brain is so used to seeing the base of the dip at -10C that it struggles to comprehend the scale properly. The mean is below -5C almost the whole run.

    Please God, give it to 101-North....I haven't got time for the pain!:D

    Hope you are right Catch.  

    Sitting here this morning with the sun streaming in seems a bit surreal and a bit hard to take in that which appears to be sitting on our doorstep for the next week or so?

    -0.1c/-1c

    The first course of the cold spell is starting to unfold on the Euro4 at +48hrs (this model only goes out to +48hrs on public websites). The kink in the isobars should always hold precipitation and this is shown beautifully here:

    euro4tues.thumb.jpg.403e511c1714d6808bbd860892870c15.jpg

    That's where the Euro4 ends for now, it's run 4 times a day so we'll get the 06z later this morning.

    Meanwhile the GFS picks up nicely where the Euro4 leaves off and brings snow to the east of Scotland on Tuesday morning. Several cms widely across the east:

    I have to admit to feeling like I'm six years old again and it's Xmas on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and possibly Sunday too. What can possibly go wrong??? (don't answer that bit)

    Don't get the snow measuring stuck out and you'll be ok:cold:

    A crisp fresh morning at North Berwick beach. Have a feeling it won't look as serene in 48 hours.

    I dunno. I lived there from when I was 9 until 19 and I think it snowed just twice. 

    It's where they send kids who love snow to punish them. White Christmases never come to North Berwick.

    Other than that it's really lovely.

    EDIT

    EURO4

    First organised feature incoming.

    Even the oil rigs will be getting buried it seems.:D

    Yes it’s looking very good, even I am excited here in the west. That first band of snow could possibly make it across the central belt and with the possibility of Forth-Clyde streamers it’s certainly a period of exciting weather coming up. Looking forward to seeing some deep snow pictures from our members in the East :)

    The model thread is all about Friday which is really annoying considering the possibility of disruptive snow across many areas the next few days.

    Don't get the snow measuring stick stuck!

    Cold here this morning.

    I'm still doubtful we'll get snow here - I'm just expecting a week of low temps and some big ice bulges on the western hills.

    Could someone please explain what a Forth-Clyde streamer is? Is it when the showers travel further inland because they’re going over water?

    Morning all from a very chilly and blue skied Skye! Looks like some of you might get buried alive next week, but I'm sure someone will dig you out before Easter! Still looking like a no show fur snaw up here, but that's fine by me as the cauld will be  enough for me to deal with! ⛄❄ I'd advise you all to start panic buying now as there won't be a loaf left on the shelves by Tuesday!

    It'll be interesting to see the beach covered in snow. Also I've twice seen the firth here start to freeze around slack pools, then get snow over that, which can be very photogenic. And pretty stunning anyway!

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
