@scottish skier et al, anyone give me a state of the road for the A68? Family looking to head up tomorrow as niece has interview at Edinburgh uni, and just looking at all possible routs as A66 may not be great for my mother to drive.

It's totally fine from Earlston N. to Edinburgh. I've no idea further South, but I imagine it's clear enough now.

There's some impressive drifts to stare in awe at.

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

Between 1 & 2C and heavy rain, there isn't a word invented to adequately describe this kind of weather and the resulting awful mess it's making of all the lovely snow.

My now soggy piles have drooped and are looking rather sad for themselves. Need a good freeze to set them solid for a few weeks of slow shrinkage.

What a rubbish end to a snowfest. Foggy and wet. The snow was fantastic while it was coming down but the ending to this story is utter guff. Was one sunny afternoon to marvel at it all too much to ask? Nah, it's been a great first half to the whole thing but this is just a skankfest now.

@CatchMyDrift @Ravelin I remember the January 1987 easterly ended the same way.....days of cold grey and drizzle, though I don’t remember there being such heavy rain. I suppose it’s the price you pay for an easterly snowfest given for the rest of the year an easterly usually brings murk and gloom with it (on the coast at least). A nice quick build of high pressure overhead would have been ideal!

@Cheggers Just rain, I think. Any meaningful snow should be restricted to higher ground north of the central belt.

Awful day of weather in NE Fife compounded by the Dundee-St Andrews road being closed for a while just in time for the evening commute. :closedeyes:

Been pretty dry here all day with temps around 4/5c, Had a drive from Strontian to Aoineadh Mor to the old crofters hamlet ruins, lots of ice.. Sad history but lovely spot.

Having missed all of the snow last week I look forward to further snow on the hills - only please.  It's been quite frustrating having such skewed weather reports on tv.  It's like the west of Scotland suddenly disappeared off the map.  However, don't know why I get so irked, we've had plenty snow since December (igloos and everything) and don't think it's been reported either, although not like last weeks - that looked epic for a few days.  I think the shine came off it for most when their worlds stopped turning though.  Glad to hear things are returning to almost normal for a lot of people but quite some disruption still for some.  However, we're all fooooked if there's a zombie apocalypse - it would appear it's most definitely every man/ wifey/ auntie Beanie for him/ herself on the bread and milk front!

Currently big flakes falling quite fast now, thought it was all over with the heavy rain last night! Mind you I aint being watching weather reports recently.

Snow wreaks it's revenge!

It looks like it's hammering it down on the M77 with the higher points at a standstill, meanwhile it seems to be rain or sleet on the higher  M74... :)

Seemed to be quite a few places getting it, snow is big wet flakes. My road was whiteout in about 15 mins
