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

Can I ask what that things is just off the north coast?? and does it mean I'm set for a total tonking??

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

    Oh and today's max of -3.8C makes it the lowest maximum temperature I've recorded since moving here in August 2010. It beats my previous record, set in December 2010......by 0.1C!! :)

    Were those pics from up at Maspie Den?

    The icicles ones were, yep. It was a tad slippy down on the rocks. It will take another week of subzero temperatures before the waterfall even considers starting to freeze though. It did so in 2010, amazing to see.

    Probably the heaviest shower of the day blowing through the Ferry but I’m off to bed....lack of sleep catching up with me. :D

    Looking forward to catching up with the snow totals in the morning, it’s been a day that will live long in the memory for many!:)

    It’s an avalanche barrier. You see them on maps in the Alps  :D

    Thanks.  I regret not walking up to see it in 2010, if it stays cold enough this time I will definitely head up.

    OK - so I'm calling this in an hour early for @Hawesy. Still snowing on and off here but I've been out with the ruler and the level snow on the back grass is around 22 cm. You were under by 2! Great call sir :yahoo:

    The drifts are unreal - pushing 40cm+ in parts of the garden. Been a truly memorable day after a fairly nervous start! 

    Best thing about it is that it's not over yet!

    That's here now. Heaviest since 2AM. Still needs to drop about 8cms in the next 45 mins to reach my target but you never know.?

    Very difficult to estimate, but I'd say around 20-25cm of snow on the northern edge of Glasgow. Almost a direct hit from the heaviest falls! No doubt the Campsies will have even more.

    @Hawesy can't find the tape measure but that's our food recycling bin nearly buried by the back door.

    We worked out earlier that it is a 'convergence line', but we didn't work out what it'll mean on the ground. Sounds promising to me, but no doubt you will soak up all the snow before it gets to me.

    Scottish skier days double last season's total

    Scotland's mountain snowsports industry has already had this season more than double the number of "skier days" recorded for the whole of last season.
