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

Maybe a cm here but quite wet and has melted off the road.Is it the bulbs?

Less down towards Riverside.

No chance of  snow/settling snow here at the moment.

They've been on the fax chart since Sat night/Sunday.

And, who said Stirling's in the firing line?

Clearly doesn't know Stirling has the most technologically advanced snow shield in the country.

Yep! Here we go... let's just hope it peps up a little ;) I'm never satisfied lol

Just been for a quick walk to the sorting office and lots of very fine pellets.  Nice to see it lying already though, so we'll still just have to wait...

A few flakes blowing about in the breeze this morning. Anything that was falling was not melting.

Bitterly cold, everything frozen solid, including the milk bottles on the doorstep!

If anything the latest Amber warning looks like an upgrade of sorts. Extended longer on Thursday and covers further south.

Yeah noticed that. Here and now, dew point has dropped steadily to -3 at the airport, wind constant from the east, radar looks decent over coming hours, and fine snowflakes blowing about in the wind down here. The trend might be underway.

Picking up a direct north easterly here at the moment.   Is it to turn direct easterly later?   Concerned about the direction of convection  otherwise.

1.7c/-4.4c/NE

Given the Euro4 I am not surprised :)

As far as I can see it should begin to veer most easterly as the day goes on. Fingers crossed :)

A nice start with a dusting. Hopefully a lot more to come in the coming days - I'm hoping for more than 5 inches but expecting 6cm. 

It's great to see the thread busy again with the prospect of the best snow since 2010 in many areas. It's going to be interesting to see what the radar will show in the next couple of days and how much snow we get out of it. If this comes anywhere near 2010 then a memorable winter will become an epic one. For some, the snow will be more than epic - many eastern areas will see more than 15cm and some will get more than 30cm. Regardless of how much snow we get, we are on the cusp of the best late February snow since 2001 and 2006 for March with the coldest uppers for decades providing the best charts and the most impressive second-half of winter cold spell in my lifetime.

It's going to be a fun 48hrs+ and hopefully loads of snow - looking forward to everyone's snow reports and pictures.

Took the boy to school this morning nice dusting here at 0630, I'm a Firefighter up at Lochgelly, and as you may know the highest town in Fife. I'm night shift tonight so I put money on it being busy. It amazes me how bad some folk drive in this weather.
