    I imagine the yellow warning for Thursday will be upgraded to Amber nearer the time. I don't think the MO normally issue Amber warnings that far in advance.

    If that verifies as the MR is showing, we may see red for the central belt on Thursday - that's an epic forecast.

    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

    does my head in ...

    It's amazing how quickly the temperature has just dropped off. Have been working outside this afternoon, and since 1PM it's gone from being pleasant to absolutely Baltic.

    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

    i would probably still bank 5cm despite being confident we should see at least 15 this week

    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

    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.
