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

Direction has changed, the showers are coming in with a little more of a southerly angle than yesterday so that's probably helping you.

Driveway here cleared and ready. Might have to go for a walk later even if I no longer have the excuse of the dog.

Yellow warning for East coast just extended into Monday now.

Was just about to post that the clouds are definitely coming from a more southerly direction.   Working south of Aberdeen right now and showers are far more frequent than yesterday.

So enough with the snow, let’s start focusing on the thaw. Temperatures in eastern coastal areas may nudge above freezing today (and certainly tomorrow) as slightly less severe uppers and higher thickness values take hold. By Saturday or Sunday we’ll probably be talking about ‘wintry’ rather than snow showers for coastal and low-lying areas and by then there shouldn’t be any further accumulation away from high ground.

So a set of predictions for when the last of your snow will melt coming up shortly, everyone. :)

:rofl: Relax, I’m joking (although the comments about a gradual lessening of wintry conditions at the coast does apply)!

Morning folks, long time lurker here.

Southside of Glasgow seems to have missed out on all last nights snow by about 10miles, I had 5 inches at 5pm last night and only up to 6 inches this morning. Looking at the radar just now and it seems to be the band across the north of Glasgow still getting all the snow.

Come on snow gods, shift that snow south!

Icicles - must think about better insulation!

And then it's measurement time. @Hawesy absolutely spot on:

25cm flat lawn, drifts at the sides 40+cms

Happy shuggee :D

Great stuff! :D

Wee change in the angle of attack required! That being said - It's a pure whiteout up here at the minute! As heavy as anything yesterday afternoon!

To be fair, you'd be hard pushed to find a city in the UK that's had more days snow falling/lying this winter than the sneck, it's just having a wee rest :)

Looks as though we may have a more north of east wind tomorrow so we catch up with the snowfall. Fine sunny day now but wind picking up and  what little snow we have snow constantly drifting across fields. Currently  -1.5c

Tried to take the dog out in the car, got about half a mile, turned at the first roundabout and came back. Whiteout conditions with extremely poor visibility with snow blowing off the fields over cleared roads. 

Conditions totally crackpot for 1st. March. Some of the smaller villages and isolated farms will be cut off.

Just read yellow warning for east coast extended to Monday.

My garage roof has a funny wave pattern along it from the intense wind and drifting last night, pretty neat, also there is a deep drift about a foot or more round the front of the garage just out and to the left of the door.

I am officially stuck now as the police have closed the two roads I could use to get anywhere. On the plus side my Facebook weather page (Scottish Borders Weather) has gained 500+ likes in a week. It took me almost three years to get it to 1,000 :rofl:
