    Fair enough, just sounded like you were railing against the advice. Sorry for my overly negative reaction.

    It appears the wind is veering to more of a straight easterly. Perth should see more snow showers from now. Some red now appearing on the radar in the showers in the North Sea.

    I'd think you should still be well positioned, your location lucked out a bit with the streamers tonight but West Lothian also does well from straight easterlies so I reckon you should still get a pasting tomorrow as well:D

    I can still see quite a northerly element, or am I seeing things? At very most ENE. Could well be me, it's been a long day.

    Shhhhh, don't tell Perth, but it's snowing again in Motherwell.

     Nah we are glad for you really (and everyone on here). We just hope to be able to more suitably join in too. Fingers firmly crossed though

    We have been having about 1 heavy shower an hour here since tea time and the snow is slowly accumulating.   We still have a northerly element to the wind yet though.  Wind really picks up during a shower and blows it around everywhere then drops back to almost calm again.   LSS take on things is encouraging though.

    You don't normally see anything on the local webcam at night but you can tonight as the sky is quite light with another shower kicking off.

    Haha brilliant! Usually Castlemilk  (where i am located) follows East Kilbride when it comes to snow but not this time so far we have only got covering on the payments/roads, hoping for a change once the wind direction changes.

    No been out with the ruler yet (I would need to get my big coat on, it looks a bit chilly). From my lampost spotting seat though I can see the moon just now and it is absolutely beautiful, so clear and bright!
