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

Here, not far from the west coast we were told by the BBC (I didn’t listen to it btw) to expect 1 or 2 showers during the day but mainly dry. It was partly right in that we have had about 4 showers max today although it a shame that the current shower started over 2 hours ago?

Me too - there's been a streamer no more than 2 miles to the north of here yet no more than a few flakes have reached the ground since 12.30pm. There's a lot of bright echoes in that stream and it does look very promising so here's hoping! 

Are my eyes deceiving me or is the activity to the south of us moving slightly  north now?

Radar seems to show worst of the snow southern fife rather than central - Glenrothes nowt for the past couple of hours. Hope it changes tonight 

Bang on with that, as above, just started snowing in Thornton. Glenrothes still visible :D

Edit: clattering off the window now.

So frustrating eh?  Looking at the radar there does seem to be a lovely dark red blob that is better placed to give us a doing.

I even went out to clear the driveway and road to goad the snaw gods a wee bit and encourage them to whump us!

Haha exactly. Smack bang in the middle of the first red warning in years and it’s like a summers day. Maybe later though...

A friend told my wife that their insurance policy has an exclusion for accidents if travelling in a red warning area. Don't know if she is correct and can't see it on our policy but something to bear in mind perhaps if driving in the red area.
