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

lolz of course mate.... im not some mad mad from the model thread.... like OTR i love to see everyone have copious amounts of snaw... 

Appreciate it Edo, all your comments tonight have made me smile. I've a nephew in Edinburgh and he's thoroughly p****d off that he's got very little snow. If it's any consolation I spoke with another nephew in Shawlands, Glasgow and they've just a light dusting.......but it's still coming down in Motherwell as I type?

Well I'm off to bed now, another really heavy shower coming through at the moment although not quite as squally as the last one. I thought it could be impressive but the depths we've reached so far here in such a short space of time have been incredible and this is only the start of the proper snow potential.

And the next shower begins.

Feels weird as all the house lights in my street are off which is very unusual so everyone appears to have gone to bed to keep cosy. That is apart from me who is staring out the window lampost watching

Quick update from here: absolutely Baltic oot (or more accurately, Siberian). Only a covering of snaw yet, but am keeping the faith that we'll get whumphed over the next several days. Gauge currently reading -3.1/-9C, but that Beasterly wind is brutal: will scythe through yer bits till they're bits & pieces. Night all and 'MON THE SNAW!

I went out to take a few measurements and have 8cms measured on flat ground (no grass) in my front garden.

Mine will have to wait for morning though I don't think that I am far behind.

It looks even more awesome in numbers, we might mention this snowy period now and again in years to come:

When are the coldest uppers due to arrive??

Between about now and 9am. Last time we had uppers like this was 1991. It's possible you'll never experience uppers like this again in your lifetime.
