    Looking good here as well - down to -1.5C with close to an inch just from that last powdery shower and with the next shower just about to start.

    This ENErly direction is probably optimal for a good distribution of snow down the east coast and as it turns to more of a due easterly direction we may start to see an increased concentration along the Forth-Clyde region but with uppers as low as they are I think we're all in for a very snowy 48 hours or so (away from the Killie snowshield :rofl:)

    Yeah, no complaints, at best an even 1cm round here but given the marginal beginning to the day in Leith it's a relief. Some folk have already had a good start but for most of us it looks like its the next 48 hours that determine whether we bracket 2018 alongside other memorable events, or whether its a footnote that didn't match the hype. 'Mon the snaw !

    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

    Wind stared to pick up from the east after lunch time and we have had a few flurries/grauple this afternoon Any thawing areas in the sun started to skin up about 3.00pm and it is now 0c with larger looking showers to the east with a tendancy for them to come in from north of east  an absolutely fine direction for them to funnel into  the Firth all the way to Inverness. Seems we may get some snow overnight.

    Plenty of 'blobs' ( technical term) lined up on radar, got dunted by one coming off the M-8 on way back home. Ferocious brief blizzard conditions, AWESOME!

    It's almost worth just looking at the precip accumulation given everything from now on is going to be >10:1 A grade powdery lying snow away from the immediate coast. I think the Forth-Clyde potential is what they'll be looking at given it's a risk both morning and evening rush hour, the 'impact matrix' will be going a bit crazy with the potential for 10-20cm of snow in such a short space of time. 

    Due to my work moving offices and the commute I'm effectively working from home until Friday afternoon at the earliest so fortunately that won't be a concern for me (not gloating or anything promise:D):drinks:

    Latest Euro4:

    Precipitation accum. EURO4 Th 01.03.2018 12 GMT

    Slightly confused by Glasgow getting way more on their projections than anywhere a shower would need to pass over to get to them but otherwise it looks pretty promising...

    Dark skies to the EAST of Edinburgh, possibly because it's night time :)

    Beeb has 49 hours in a row of at least 1 flake on the hourly forecast

    It's ripe for a Forth streamer taking the fast lane straight(ish) west along the motorway to Glasgow tomorrow. It could go a while with the ultra-cold upper air too, should be plenty of action tomorrow.

    Settling quickly in the showers but not lasting too long. Around 1cm on the ground so far. Only 19 to go to reach Hawesy's estimate!

    I'd be surprised if we don't see a red warning.

    I wouldn't.

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
