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

Totals in this part of Glasgow don’t seem to have increased from last night too much. Reports/photos/videos from the south side suggest they’ve taken much more, even areas without much elevation (Cathcart etc). Amazing the difference a few km makes.

Theres some difference between East Kilbride and Glasgow .

Last two nights out with the kids have been great but could do without the mega dangerous drives to work. I feel bad for those with nothing. Hope you get yours before the winter is out and hopefully in a non work day.

Interesting that the rain/snow band seems to be reducing back towards the coast. Shows snow in Kilmarnock area now. Not sure how accurate it necessarily is though.

Nope, it's wrong. Rain here.

Radar says precipitation right now but there is nothing coming down. Too far north. I would say the blanket closure of east Ayrshire schools tomorrow is  a bit much. Should have been closed today maybe. Tomorrow not so much.

@CatchMyDrift a decent shout with the thin red line...

Hi Res from Xtra ( only a few bob folks!)

animation shows the NNE steer Shug referred to earlier so perhaps better than it first looks into the wee small hours, remember a lot of the area still in the yellow warned section. 

Depends on what folks are looking for - a) full blown snawmageddon / peak pasting or b) yellow warning

Reckon we cannot be greedy if in the firing line given other snow starved areas looking in enviously, good luck all !

Surface plot to my eye looks a little further N on the low vs modelling earlier, but it really is fine, fine margins..

If the dodgey missing radar section just north of northern Ireland, is actually green intensity then I'd be happy! Drizzle here so far but suspect if we get some heavier precip it will change to snow.

Think I am suffering the snow hangover discussed in here earlier! :drunk-emoji:

Mon tae fu**! I thought this front might snake its way up to Croftfoot - looks like that ain’t going to happen! :angry:

Funny how you can still be proper raging about missing out on a snow event while you have snow thick on the ground and just experienced one of the best 24 hour snow watching experiences of yer life! :D

I wish everyone in the Amber warning area a joyful night of pure heavenly snow entertainment and I hope you all are safe and sound if you must head out on the roads! 

Oh and great pictures in here again today - really appreciate everyone who posts in here! Adds to my Winter/snow vibe! :cold-emoji:

Radar looks like if anything makes it here it'll be light. Temp seems too high though so light sleet or rain more realistic than snow. The Met's 'predictive ppn fantasy radar nonsense' does show heavier ppn in the small hours but it's really just for fun!

I can confirm that light snow is now falling in East Kilbride. Not sure if it will get any heavier.

I am three miles Northwest and the Metoffice have just updated my forecast to this? 

Could be another late night - third in a row! :rofl:

Keep refreshing the page though as it'll change in about 15mins as usual :D

Very light snow started to fall in Lanark. We are on the Northern boundary of the Met office amber warning so a good fall here may give hope to those in the Central belt.

Snowing heavily now and settling on the road.  Good luck everyone for the night ahead.
