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

It's funny, the Lomonds are positive cloud magnets for the rest of the year. The rest of Fife basks in sunshine while we sit in drizzle ;-)

You'll probably have more than any of us come Thursday.....Take care!

Not a lot happening here yet in this wee corner of East Lothian, still awfy sunny , only had 3 wee showers all day so far. Snaw has all melted from earlier. Getting twitchy ???

On the the plus side it’s blooming freezing and mair cloud about, coming in on the breeze. Time for a dog walk to see if I can catch a snaw shower ??

Graupel? When you squeeze the pellets do they break up...if so it's graupel rather than hail....:)

It does, thanks for that! I'll add it to my list of weather terms I bandy about to appear far more knowledgable than I am ? And it's just coated the ground nicely for the big fluffy flakes ?

Oh look who gets zippo from that projection 

My 50% English self says:  "You're on the little peninsula between the three masses of water at the top of the map aren't you"?)  50% Scot self says:  "A f'n telt ye' ye' were covered wi' the weather warnin' "}!

Lovely bright sunny day in Inverurie at the moment. A quick estimate of 2-3cm on the car this morning at 8am but no doubt some melting will have occurred before the real cold air moves in later.

Had to wear my hat when I took the dog out this morning. There are some snow flakes coming down just now...might need to look the big coat out later. Not sure if any of us will survive this hell.

BBC page comments.

:D

Noticed met office had downgraded Perth to 1 snowflake symbol tomorrow ... i assume the main activity will be just south of Perth or still time to change? 

I wouldn't take much notice of these. They change all the time and I believe have no manual input. Take more note of the written bits underneath?

Blustery graupel down at Aberdeen beach.  All good snowfests start with a base of graupel.  

What's the saying that often rings true?   "Wee snaw big fa'  big snaw wee fa' "

Nice snow grains falling now on the dog walk. 

Also a wee peek at the lammermuirs before the next band of snow comes in .

And as it is now , more heavy bursts of snow grains mixed with snow flakes.

An exceptionally bracing lunchtime walk along the waterfront at Greenock. A few snowflakes blowing in the breeze. Flakes so dry they are not even sticking to the ground and are just blowing away.IMG_3948.thumb.JPG.e29cf08d8d2f6d1bc3a217129b1d304d.JPGIMG_3950.thumb.JPG.847c53d5727e6bec8bf0e183e4d1fad3.JPG

Missing most of the showers here.  Temperature hovering around 1.5C - roofs exposed to the sun are now clear of snow and a slow general thaw elsewhere.  Never seen so many birds on the bird feeder - animals have had a tough winter.
