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

Why were you surprised? (curious :) )

 

Nothing technical, just thought there would have been more of a southerly element to the easterly starting to creep in towards the latter half of the week. I'll defo take an ENE for the whole week though, it's perfect for here

Remember the wind will not follow the isobars 100%, it'll usually be skewed slightly so it flows from high pressure to low pressure.

Good luck @Mr Frost and Mrs Frost!!

I have a snow baby too! I spent a week in ninewells hospital glued to this forum watching out a window at the lampposts ? Last thing I remember before being put under for an emergency section was the surgeon saying, you can tell your baby it just started snowing as she was about to be born! It snowed the day we left the hospital then snowed the day we went to register her birth!

My daughter too was born on a snow day in Ninewells on 12th March. Since the she has seen snow on several birthdays including 2006 when her big party was cancelled.

On a different note I have been looking into the mt madhouse with a sense of detachment as they argue over will it / won't it break down on Friday as I have not seen one model yet that shows us in NE UK missing out on convective snowfall at the least from Tuesday through Saturday?

I just have one concern about the upcoming cold spell this week...my girlfriend is due to give birth on March 5th and the worst case scenario would be for the wee bugger to announce his arrival early during a Clyde streamer while I am in lamp post watching mode or out enjoying it! :rofl:

We have narrowed the name down to two...but I’m still trying to throw a weather related name into the hat! (she will never go for it but worth at least the discussion!) Any you can think of? (it’s a boy)

I actually had the name Storm down for a girl so my plan was ruined - Stormzy for a boy maybe? :D

Daddy no-condom style...

Two amber warnings now for Englandshire on Tuesday.  Do we think any will be issued up here?  No doubt when it's too late...

If the blizzard arrives down there on Friday I would assume the red warning would be rolled out.

Just go shut the door and ignore her if that happens.

If she's making too much noise, phone her parents and ask them to pick her up. Failing that, an ambulance.

Absolutely no way you should miss this incoming snaw.

:wink:

I’m sure that the amber warning for up here will be along any moment...

Or will that wait until hell freezes over (even then it would probably only be a yellow warning!)

Amber oot on Wednesday for the east! 

That serves me right for being sarcastic!

I’m rather liking the mention of lightning in these warnings. It’s hard to beat a bit of thundersnow.

Good point there - I bet ambulances aren't fitted with winter tyres.  I think you should offer your services!

Still up around Aviemore. Bit chilly in the tent last night, mind. But worth it for the views this morning.

It's cloudy back here today with a cool breeze off the sea. Looks fab up in Speyside!

Thank you for all the name suggestions and comments - much appreciated! 

This Metoffice warnings malarkey is starting to give me a sore head - my location has three separate warnings out for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. (All yellow not Amber like some of you lucky folk!) 

I am either going to end up with 2 cm from all of them or over 10 cm! 

@Hawesy will you be doing the snow predictions for us all? :D
