    Near Tullynessle, which is to the north of Alford, half way up Sui hill.

    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

    I’m thinking many of us will be home bound tomorrow as well. Luckily I was off today anyway but I don’t fancy a commute to Edinburgh in this!

    So weird that East Lothian seems to be the only place on the east coast where showers just disintegrate! Perhaps a stable layer somewhere around there? Or maybe the intense convection in the Forth is cutting off its supply of energy?

    It's like a eerie fog has descended all of a sudden but it's not it's blowing snow (with drifting)

    I noticed this too. There seems to be a steady stream coming on land there, but it seems to die off before reaching Edinburgh.

    Troughs ! Someone's had a ruler out drawing those...

    On those charts, is there a special significance to the trough lines with the little angled side bars on them? For example, on the second chart there's one off the NE coast of Scotland, and one to the south of Ireland? I can't find a reference to those anywhere.

    It's prickly trough.

    Think we should watch this area here for Edinburgh:

    Does it say the file is too big? If so try to make picture smaller size or upload picture to laptop/pc and try from there.

    I think they're convergence lines.  

    Bingo!

    Horizontal convergence is the coming together of two flows of air. When these two flows of air are from different air masses and significant cloud and weather result, the resulting line of convergence is commonly drawn as a front. However, when these two flows of air are in the same air mass and significant cloud and weather result, the weather feature is drawn as a convergence line. Convergence lines are only drawn in the tropics.

    Now how that manifests itself in terms of weather is yet another question. Sounds as if it could be a bit more special than a plain old trough though.

    Currently having a shower which so far has lasted 20mins?   Looking at the radar, we seem to be on the northern periphery of a streamer in the Forth?   Wind direction has more of an easterly element now.

    Oh my God, what a fright!   Huge thunderclap just now. Huge hail too.

    yes, the showers that land near say Eyemouth seem to explode as they track towards Lauder but the ones land around North Berwick / Dunbar quckly fizzle out. Very strange!
