LADIES AND GENTLEMEN FOR ONLY THE SECOND TIME IN 7 AND A BIT YEARS I HAVE A MEASURABLE SNOWFALL! :):D:rofl:

Only a cm mind but a landmark day for the kilted thread. :rofl:

Incredible! That alone surely merits a red warning...

West Lothian group call message just now said further update on schools before 7 am. They should just shut them all let the kids play in the snow!

Given the Met Office's track record I would agree. I can't remember the last red warning for snow in a Scotland - I think Edinburgh in December 2010

There was one red warning that winter for Edinburgh and I got hugely excited and then it vanished a few hours before its time-stamp... :'(

Mind you, I did have enough snaw that winter, so I survived :)

But that's the only red warning I've ever seen.

I got that message too Lorenzo. Wondering why Falkirk council deems it necessary to close all schools but West Lothian, further east, will wait until morning?

Evening 

It was fun watching the showers come in from my office window, shame we only got a couple of cm if that.   

Still feeling a bit nervous about tomorrow & Thursday plus my son has got his hopes up for a snow day this week 😔☃

Time for a wee snow dance see if it helps 😆

Don't want to make snowless folk jealous but it's chucking it down in Motherwell at 1900.

Surely something a bit stronger than a warning!!  :drunk:

Here, the radar says 'snow shower', wind direction and strength are favourable, but it's just freezing cold and bone dry :cc_confused:

The showers seem to be increasing in size/intensity once they make landfall ...

Wow! -3.5C and bucketing down! We NEVER get that low even when the sky is clear and the air is calm. Remarkable!

In other news.......the Night King is marching on Falkland.

I've noticed this too... Very strange! 

Don't even have a covering of snow yet here in the Newington part of Edinburgh, but it seems like the west of the city has done pretty well so far. Places like Livingston look like they've been getting clobbered this evening. Hopefully the weird tendency of showers to decay rapidly near here and then re-intensify after moving past will end before tomorrow!
