    There was traffic sign near Tore this afternoon that said bluntly

    AVOID TRAVEL TOMORROW

    Bizarre. Do they want the country to have a day off?

    This snaw'y weather's amazing...and it's just the beginning. 

    Since around 16:00 there must have been about 4" of level snaw lying here.

    Looking forward to tomorrow's dumping.

    Edinburgh looks like it's taking a bit of a pasting from this shower by the looks of the radar (although having lived there long enough I know there's no guarantee it's actually reaching the ground). It's certainly reaching the ground here though - moderate to heavy stuff and looks like it could be a relatively long shower:D

    you've hit the nail on the head - radar shows snow at some altitude, and if it's only light at that altitude, it can be non-existent at ground level. Which is what happens here with snow and rain. I don't mind missing the rain but....

    I'm working out an indoor snawfall rate gauge here. If the light on the big wind turbine disappears its snowing. If the lights at the timber yard disappear,it's snowing heavy. If the lampposts disappear it's a blizzard, and if the window goes white it's DEFCON 1.2

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
