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

Total whiteout again! Snow blowing everywhere. Heaviest shower all evening! Running out of words for today so epic will have to do! 

Its incredible, just when you think you've seen the heaviest fall of the day, a heavier one follows. I reckon  we've had at least 3 more inches since 9pm tonight.

Best single day of snowfall in a long time! And check the radar - it's not finished yet!

As many people as possible have been replenished, more people just heading over the bridge to head south of the bridge. Think they are In for a long night, and it's tanking down again. @Hawesy, my bin lid says 35cm at present

perths name on that?? what times that Ruzzi 

That's the fax for 12pm Thursday but I'd presume that it will begin to make headway across the country prior to that.

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

That's one of them prickly troughs, only seen during the best wintry spells ??‍♂️ 

Or in other words, mate I don't have a bloody clue ? It's a trough of some description, I just don't know what the prickles on it mean

In relation to that trough I mentioned for tomorrow that was showing on the fax charts, the MetO radar forecast shows it up quite nicely aswell

23cm so far - the highest total since 2010, and the largest snowfall since either 28th November 2010 or 12th March 2006. Adding all the previous events this winter together only just surpasses the snow currently in the ground. A maximum temperature of -3C at Glasgow airport - since 1973, the third February ice day (-1C 16th 1979, 0C 3rd 2010), the latest ice day recorded aswell as the coldest maximum recorded in February or the second half of winter in the last 45 years. Some end to the meteorological winter.

Been horrendous/brilliant here tonight. A good 10 cm minimum and the road up to the Naval Base loooks to be getting near being cut off. Could be major issues in the morning if people have to get there.

How much snow has there been in the red warning

Depends on the area of the red warning, my location has had just over a foot give or take.
