    In December 2010 I spent a few days in Balquhidder - a stone's throw from Strathyre. Snow depth at 63cm and daytime highs of -8°C :D

    And then the Police advised no travel on the motorway network....

    I'm only interested in snow falling in Lochaber - will it? Or are we just going to be baltic?  Those runs at Nevis Range won't top themselves up you know!!

    Beautiful day In Edinburgh. Very cold by nightfall. I'm not convinced the average punter knows what's about to hit, especially in the East! 

    Much of the country will do very well this week, and the uppers stay cold enough for snow into next weekend, with opportunities abound for those unlucky from Tuesday to Thursday.

    I am wondering if further model upgrades are likely as the impact of the 2nd SSW become a apparent.

    Reloads anyone? :)

    Ok, so nobody knows where I work, what I do, I know that, but if I was to say through that occupation I maybe sometimes, in exceptional circumstances, when it may affect my work, etc, be party to advance warnings of exceptional weather and impact of such. Just a wee nerve settler for ye all.
