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

are these showers that you have got with the thunder coming anywhere near west lothian! i want some lol

For west lothian i would say anything on the radar just to the south of dunbar could reach you however unsure if they have thunder in them but it wouldn't surprise me if they do (the showers hitting here are forming in the forth) :good:

Just relentless heavy showers this evening. A day to remember for certain! Tanking down again :D

 

Yeah it's been some day/night and to think we were getting a bit nervous this morning when we only had about 5cm !

They are lined up better for us on the radar out to the east - more to come shortly. 

Great news Frost, patience hopefully paid off... as if 15cm wasn't enough ha!

Looks like I should've stayed at work if I was wanting to get the full easterly experience :rofl: Amazing totals in the central belt, really superb stuff.

It's been a fairly decent evening, nothing lasting too long yet but fairly heavy when it has fallen and relatively frequent. This next line looks very impressive from here and I did see the thundersnow earlier so here's hoping the snowless pockets get filled in tonight:drinks:

Been great reading the thread all day and watching the totals mount up. Bit of a slow start here but snaw steadily built up during the day and showers have really pepped up this evening. Now about 10cm level snaw but hard to measure as it's been birling about all day in the wind. Just beyond the edge of the red warning up here but looks academic now as we're getting a proper whumphing. Oh, and an ice day as well. Just to chuck that into the mix. Currently -4.8C/-9C. Stay safe, kilters, and enjoy the snaw.

Yep, indeed :) Haven't given up hope... going for positivity... was just trying to guess how much will be there in the morning... have decided on 7cm, so shouldn't be disappointed ;)

What a night for Embra, blizzard conditions again and much more persistent over the last few hours 

Really hope those who have missed out get some luck over the next few days. ECM 12z more promising for keeping the cold!

Apologies, I don't know when this was updated or if it's been mentioned already, so hard to keep up with this thread today lol. But the latest fax charts for tomorrow afternoon , likely commencing sometime during the morning, have the areas slightly to the north of central belt and possibly the northern parts of the central belt taking another direct hit from an embedded trough. I'm not the best with fax charts so anyone feel free to elaborate
