    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

    The snow sounds weird tonight. Even though we have a good covering already, the falling snow sounds like heavy rain!

    RE: the various snowshields, the big line of heavy showers building out in the North Sea at the moment heading due west rather than southwest is going to reset things as it makes landfall and turn the wind due easterly behind it.

    Sure I can see that happening now on the radar, showers off the Aberdeenshire coast are moving in a more westerly direction than earlier today. Probably better news for @More Snowand my ehm...kids, yeah kids, definitely the kids that will be getting excited.

    Edit; My youngest's birthday tomorrow so it'll be the best birthday ever if it's also a school 'snow day'.

    No we can't :D I'm currently using a marker pen on my screen to trace the outline of showers as they approach and run through the Forth estuary, to get some kind of handle on whats happening over time. My astounding conclusion: there's not many  heading for, or hitting Edinburgh :pardon:

    Think I should go and do something normal for a wee while. Whatever normal is !

    I think the problem is this:nmmukwind.thumb.png.49baa0e48a74d23af24c337199c8d5d2.png

    Dundee and Fife (and Motherwell's) shower line is coming directly from the ENE, the line that's hitting the northeast of England and now the eastern Borders is coming directly from the North East, and your snow is... well, being diverted to either Shuggee or myself:rofl:

    This is going to change once this line out in the North Sea moves inland and your snow shield will relent... Or maybe not but you never know:D

    I think I may have underestimated for you....already. Could you send some to @Hairy Celt please?

    Never measure on grass, concrete should be fine so long as it’s away from shelter or a heat source. Having said that garden furniture or wheelie bins are the traditional kilted thread measuring tools! :D

    Will do!

    Cheers LS, that makes sense :good:  But when you say "diverted" I prefer to use the term STOLEN:closedeyes:

    Had to save a screenshot for posterity, definitely the best forecast here for snow since 2010.

    Note the significant difference between the Met and BBC forecast temperatures - BBC version already wrong as its just past -4C now.  Really not impressed by the new BBC weather provider, overall accuracy seems to be significantly worse than the Met Office.

    Big cloud to another big cloud: 'Aaaaargh fk no it's the Black Isle, quick, you head that way (north), I'll go this way (south)'

    Stage direction <big cloud gives other big cloud a mighty elbow off to one side>

    Pause...

    Stage direction < big cloud looks over its shoulder>

    Big cloud: 'Phew, dodged that fuckwit HC again!'

    We've dodged them no more.  Rarely seen snow of that type here. 

    Yeah, big clouds of powdery snow blowing around in the Hamilton Road - not something you see every day!  Just drove over from Bothwell to Motherwell and it was pelting down at a fair rate.  Car (front wheel drive with non-winter tyres) just failed to get up a tiny slope and will probably be staying stationary for a while now.

    Using the carefully-calibrated scientific method of sticking my index finger into the snow, it goes most of the way to the knuckle so probably 8 or 9 cm already.

    Yeah, me too :( We need to keep the faith though... Hawsey and LS seem to think we'll be okay, and they know a lot more than me, certainly :) 

    So, in the experts we trust!

    I’m trying to keep the faith, believe me ? I think I jinxed it by putting off road tyres on my jeep ?

    I trust the experts, I don’t know how to read the charts and graphs so I’m staying in here for updates!
