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

    Morning all,

    A quick peek out the window indicates nothing epic, but around 3 maybe 4 inch of even cover and by the looks of things more to come:yahoo:

    Currently -3.7c , so another great start to the day:D

    Some more snow overnight here - not lots though  4/5 cms total if that (definitely will be at work today though I suspect there will be more snow at work just north of Scone). Looking at the radar and euro4 that looks about it in Perth until later this avo despite metoffce with heavy snow symbols for here at the moment. Cold in that wind outside :cold:

    Morning all,

    Hard to tell because of the drifting but possibly 3 or 4 cm here in Broughty Ferry, with snow covering the main road.

    Great work by those on the night shift!

    Glad the Perth contingent have no way got in on the action!

    Going to be a long, exciting day! :D

    Not sure of depths, but there’s sh*tloads of snow fallen in Glasgow overnight.

    I'm guessing there's about 6cm in Stirling just now... kids'll be happy when they wake.

    Scratch that - I'm vindicated after having told them about this from  last week.  And with an added bonus of putting my wife's gas at a peep.

    Ha.

    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 

    toys firmly in the pram and hopefully more gettimg put in it

    I was woken up at 6 by a text saying the work is shut! Looked out the window and hard to judge in the dark but there is certainly something.... Will go and take a depth reading in a hour or so, but until then just enjoying the reports on here!

    maybe 2-3cm here so good but not epic - looks there are organised lines of constant showers to the north and south of Edinburgh who mist be getting pasted (those bands extending down towards Glasgow )

    Practically no snow here overnight. Don't think this wind direction is working at all. Impressive radar this morning looking at some other areas though!

    Latest models show far south of Scotland and north east England now the main focus for severe snow and barely anything around Edinburgh. Oh dear, might have gone wrong at the last minute here...

    All GCC nurseries and schools closed. They're expecting conditions to get worse especially this afternoon into tonight. Wouldn't be suprised if schools remain closed tomorrow. Glasgow seems to have been hit pretty hard through the night.

    Well just the other grump to go now, @101_North what's it like at your bit?

    Maybe 3cm. Temp around -4c. Still only catching occasional showers here. Let's see what today brings :)

    At this minute in time I can see a lot of people questioning why the schools here are shut. They won't be aware of the forecast and the advice given to the council. They'll look outside and decide they've seen much worse. The council is in a pure catch 22 situation!

    Radar looks great for NE England at the minute. Not looking great for here for a while at least!

    Wind seems too strong for these small showers. They seem to get blown through before they can have any impact. Not much change overnight but hope we will see more today.

    Tried to measure the depth by hanging out the patio door in a blizzard and only got 2cm. Think that was a bit sheltered and too near the house heat island so I'll try again later. 

    Aberdeenshire schools announcing closures at a rate of knots now, based as much on the forecast as the overnight falls by the looks of it. Youngest is ecstatic about having the day off on his birthday. :yahoo:

    Unlikely to be anywhere near the Siberian snow apocalypse some of our more eastern pals are having here, looks epic in some places though, we can crowdfund to buy SS a new bench after the snaw snaps it, what a joyous thread to catch-up on folks?

    TV presenters were teaching people how to walk in snow there.... *TV is off now ?

    some moderate showers feeding through so far this morn, currently snowing and -9c, awesome
