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

There was a skiff of snow this morning over this side from a shower overnight and some graupel in the air at times this morning. 

 

 

 

Same in Monikie. Enough to turn the grass white but that was about it.

Morning all!

Would really love to be living in the East this week! Aberdeen, Forfar, Edinburgh to Kelso are all in for a ton of snow - can’t wait to see the totals on the ground by Friday! 

Glasgow area and South Lanarkshire look like hitting the jackpot Tuesday night and Wednesday - it’s going to be some week for lots of us on this thread! 

What a Winter it has been for many - if this week delivers here it will be my best ever! :yahoo:

Have a good one today!

Little bit of graupal this morning on way into work just north of aberdeen. Wind is getting proper cold, temp is 2c but feels below 0!! Let’s hope we get a proper pasting up here in Aberdeen.....I’ve been waiting for a decent snow since 2010!!

Work colleagues darn sarf confirming its snowing in London + Reading, surprised the armed guard haven't been deployed, be a run on supermarkets by midday :-)

Looking at the radar load of showers running in on a NE'ly feed into England, flow still looks se'ly here - hopefully change later today ...

A few flurries of snow grains by Beauly earlier. Leaden sky but with the odd blue bit showing. 

Still I have no clue as to whether there'll be snow around the firth this week. Kind of doubting whether anyone does.

MO warnings page would appear to have broken.

Ominous.

:D

Possibly getting updated for tonight/tomorrow as I've saw on a few other regional threads that the models have shifted tonight's feature further northwards

Here's HW's take HC

just a case of seeing what comes along the firth I guess. Interested to see how low we'll go, 8th consecutive hard frost today, ground is ridiculously hard/frozen with some areas of old snow too, good build -up to very low numbers

Interesting few days ahead that's for sure.   Think I will be a little too close to the coast for any significant accumulations but you never know.   There will be some places getting a right pasting so hope everyone enjoys and stays safe when/if the beast arrives !

Hi everyone, a potentially very snowy week ahead for most of us!

I'm confused by the seemingly conflicting forecasts however - according to the Met office forecast my area shows almost constant snow between Wednesday and Sunday. But my BBC weather app on my phone shows hardly any snow, a few showers in the morning of Tues and Wed then almost nothing from Thurs to Sunday? Why the huge discrepancy?

I’m in Newburgh so just up the road. I think We may do well from this. 2010 gave some significant accumulations and with 850 uppers looking like -11/12c come Tuesday night we could donget pasted! Fingers crossed.

Oh good grief.

That reminds me of the rubbish the Daily Record were spouting for my area on 19/01/2018! I was in the Amber warning area...clear blue skies all day then suddenly all schools around me were closing at 13:00pm (Sister was told to pick up my niece by text message) and people from work were being told to leave at 15:00pm...still clear blue skies at this point...then finally at 16:00pm one solitary heavy snow shower came through...lasted half an hour then nothing happened afterwards! Was the biggest let down/Amber warning of my life! :rofl: I remember poor Sean Batty took loads of abuse on Twitter about it.

Knife edge really - all depends on the flow on the firth. Can make all the difference between dry as a bone and 20cm of snow.
