    I'm sitting lamppost watching and I'm so impressed so far, outbreaks of blizzard like conditions, short breaks with gusting winds blowing the polystyrene like snow up and about, thundersnaw....unbelievable Jeff, I'm staying up until the lighting X appears o  the radar map just for my own sanity! Brilliant ?

    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

    Oh what a night. It's been snowing here for about 3 hours now, light then heavy. About 5-6cm lying. I can't take my eyes off the radar, more on it's way it appears.Glasgow City appears to have taken quite a substancial hit, the traffic cams look nuts, M77 and M80 also. In between the showers it's been quite odd as the moon has been out, lighting up the garden and field. Well it appears on the radar another flurry in the next 10 minutes or so. I don't want to go to bed.

    Keep warm.

    I've been to bed and got back up, slept an hour. I might go outside for a wee wonder. It's really bright even when it's snowing. Fabulous night and then we can see what the next 48hrs+ will bring. So far, so epic :)

    Ive been traffic cam watching, and large parts of the country have a fair bit of snow lying. Mainly the length of the East Coast, Central and Central Belt. Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow doing well on the radar.  Plenty more showers and bands tracking in. Some reports of thunder snow.

    Enjoy your walk if you go out.

    I went outside to experience the heavy snow and get a taste of the -16c uppers as I've never experienced such extreme conditions. Am I in Dundee or the Arctic?

    Wee picture of some of the motorways as of 2am. Quite impressive the geographical distance between these 4 locations. Livingston, Scotstoun, Glasgow Airport, Moodiesburn. Not one for getting hung up on MetO warnings ?.... but tonight should have been amber for sure

    ooooh yes no complaints from Perth this morning..... looking rather tasty id guess around 8-9 cm. here before the warning starts

    fair play to @LomondSnowstormand others who called it very well last night

    Slight overnight accumulation of snow, but difficult to assess at the mo with it being powdery and blown around in a very gusty wind. As usual the showers are doing a good job in dodging my location. By the looks of a car roof test, I would say about a 2cm covering. :) 

    Earlier on, planet Jupiter was shining brightly during one of the clearer spells

    Around 30mins ago there was a massive flash to the south, but not sure if I heard thunder or just the swirly wind.

    my question got a bit lost last night but are we expected to see an organised band forming at a particular time today out in the North Sea or is it simply a case of multiple convective showers
