    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

    I'm in the town, and nothing here either :(

    Tim

    I’m at Tibbermore, the clouds are rolling in and small flakes are appearing in the wind! Hopefully this is the start of a decent flurry at least ?

    If LSS is right, then the shedload that's heading towards Edo should hit us both then.... fingers crossed :)

    Lolz winds me right up charging for a bag for takeaway food....I'd like to see them hand me all my food for a family of 6 without a bag

    What irritates me is that they're paper bags and the 5p charge (which I agree with) was for plastic bags. Also they happily chuck in a free (and usually dire) plastic toy for free. Not that we go there as often as the kids would like.

    Despite being rather disappointed thus far (2cm on the ground) I'm looking forward to see what overnight and tomorrow brings! Plenty of opportunity ahead :)

    I am sure that will go down well with most private companies.....

    What? That public servants are showing a duty of care to those they are paid to protect?? Really? Life and limb take priority over making a buck.

    Not sure if you are allowed to post here screenshots from other weather sites.  Anyway, have a look at the precipitation radar for the North Sea at this link...

    https://en.sat24.com/en/gb/rainTMC

    That is one huge "streamer" of snow currently forming in the North Sea between Denmark and SW Norway - should produce some impressive snow totals when that hits the east coast.

    There's just been a bit too much of a northerly component this evening for you folks. I wouldn't be too worried though - the temperature's absolutely perfect (-3C) and once the wind direction shifts due east the showers will be streaming down the Tay direct to your house I'm sure:D

    I’ll be showing everyone at my work this tomorrow.....or hopefully not because I’ll be snowed in ?

    Yeah...been very little here to add to the 2 or 3 good coastal hits we had here 4 or 5 hours ago. To be honest I'd happily roll the dice on a subtle change of wind direction or flow, currently the lack of snaw activity around a radius of Edinburgh is pretty dispiriting.

    I am not saying it's wrong....far from it. Just that bosses of pvt companies will not share the same view.

    Showers now looking to be coming in more directly E-W?

    Seems to be the case over the last hour or so.

    Was tracking a blob that I thought would pass south of me but it's not about to hit me directly from the E.
