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

I think I’ll stick to the info on this thread for the rest of this week as I’m not really interested in chasing the breakdown on the model thread!!

Why can’t they just enjoy what’s ahead this week ?

i know, 200 posts on one low pressure system on Friday and what it may or may not do south of the M4, whilst large swathes of the northern UK will see a lot of falling snow

Still absolutely gorgeous here although ever so slight increase in wind but nothing noticeable................YET! Soon as it gets to 5 o'clock or so temperatures seem to drop like a stone. That's a sign of things to come

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

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 first was born in November and the nurse with me was Australian, she had never seen snow. She had the bloody windows wide open and the snow battering in, I thought I was goin to die of pneumonia before the baby arrived :rofl:

All my three born in near biblical rain. Two in Truro, Cornwall and one in Stirling. The middle one was nearly born at home as the car wouldn't start, the midwife loaded me into her car and drove like the wind. I was home again with a baby two hours later.

I was born in a blizzard.

Parents lived in Carrbridge and had to negotiate the auld A9 over Slochd in whiteout conditions on the way tae Raigmore hospital. Mum kept asking my dad to stop so she should get out for a break and he was almost resigned to me arriving in a snaw-swept lay-by on some godforsaken moor.

It unquestionably was the beginning of a lifelong love of snaw for me. :D

I was born in a field according to my mother when I was growing up

Lots of you saying today was a lovely day - our themometer is wonky but it's been absolutely baltic here, too cold to do anything at all outside. Lady next door took her dog a walk and she had so many clothes on she was nearly rolling across the field instead of walking :D  The man up top of the street is lambing in a big fancy tent, with bales piled up at the entrance to keep the wind oot.

Oh aye, wouldn’t miss the opportunity to get things wrong on an epic scale! :D

Think I’ll hold off until tomorrow though as not too much happening overnight and I’ll then have the ‘benefit’ of tomorrow’s runs.
