    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

    i woild have said not but with these uppers and increased sun strength now then maybe could be quite a bit of potential in beast 2 

    not sure about sea temps though which may be cooler following beast 1 and may hinder convection 

    hopefully someone knowledgeable will come along and help

    It might, true, but it doesn't really have the look of a proper wintry northerly, so I'll save my hopes till November now. Besides, we don't want grumpy farmers...

    Can anyone in/near Galashiels advise how bad the roads were following the earlier "Beast"?  I am spending the day there on Sunday... weather permitting, and don't want to be stranded!

    My relatives stay in Hawick which is about 15 miles south of Galashiels and they were snowed in for a few days but this upcoming spell won't be a carbon copy and still plenty of time for change before Sunday. Probably best to assess it on Friday and see how it's looking at that point when the weekend's weather will be more clear.

    The main prob is the A7 north, it shuts at Middleton Moor very easily in snow. Gala itself is low lying and not usually bad - but last week it was a mess. They seemed to take forever to clear pavements and roads in the town. But I don't expect this Sunday will be nearly that bad. How are you getting to Gala?

    The Friday afternoon  - Monday snow and cold potential seems to be increasing rather than the traditional down-grading...

    Just an innocent comment on a Tuesday morning.

    It's going to be a fun rush hour on Friday in some places by the looks of things..

    And it gets even snowier after that for a day or two - looks like sledging at the weekend rather than gardening!

    7C at moment with light winds and sunny intervals. Not a bad day really.

    Joy, central Scotland looking like it is set for another pasting as things stand then. Of course, still to far out for anything to be ruled out, or in really.

    Grey wet start but nice and sunny now. Still plenty of white mounds on the roads around here, and looking like a top up over the weekend.

    Thanks for responses

    by car (4WD) to drop one of the Diddys to a dance thing.  Due to be picked up later in the day by a small hatchback, so I may bite the bullet and stay for the duration so that I can make it back to Diddy Towers safely.  .

    My gut feeling is it might be further south this time but last time it trended north as the event got nearer so who knows.

    I broke my snow shovel trying to tame the last beast. My new one arrived today so I'm ready if beast 2.0 dares try it.
