Snaw level seems to be about 180m i went down to visit my mum she stays at 196m and there is slush and snaw lying on pavements and back garden there is a fair chance it will lower tonight as the temps drop

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

Well when someone in the Model Thread feels the need to mention snow in Scotland and the post doesn't get deleted, you sort of have to take notice ??

In all seriousness, what a chart this is for the end of next week!! Obviously much scope for change as it starts at day 8 but if this verified then it would be epic again! Referred to as a Scotland snow monsoon in the Model Thread but we just call it '2 weeks ago' ??

Prior to that, we have this modelled for Tuesday at the moment:

then a brief mild sector on Wednesday prior to the cracking Thursday/Friday charts:

the strength of the wind out west is notable too, would certainly be packing in those snow showers in a very cold and unstable airmass:

Obviously a fair bit out, so will be interesting to see if it's still showing at the start of the week (and coupled with the fact that the last potent westerly blast a couple of weeks ago was modelled fairly well in advance) I thought it would merit a wee highlight.

Yes I noticed this also, very exciting times ahead for us cold lovers ?

Gritty McBawbag and Co are in for a busy month ahead I think ?

 A lot of heavy wet snow this afternoon which has not settled but ground above about 200 metres is white. Has cleared and currently 1c so expecting some very icy conditions later.

Nice ride back up through Perthshire and Speyside this afternoon In the setting sun. The deepest was about 6" at Dalwhinnie.   Just very very wet at home. Glad I survived that though, and chose to go by train as I'm not sure my head would have coped with pre-dawn A9 blizzards.

Don’t look at the 18z if you don’t like snow and cold! Some cracking charts showing again! We may well be in for something epic in the next few weeks if it comes off!

Not so long to wait igloo.....

‘We'll have to wait another decade before the next Blue Blood Moon, which will happen on Dec. 31, 2028. (Just when we thought that there couldn't possibly be more adjectives in front of the word "moon," now we have the New Year's Eve Blue Blood Moon to look forward to!)’

Hehe... an even better excuse to have a party!!!

It was great outside last night, when it was clear the lunar event lit up the snow and illuminated everywhere especially the surrounding hills and whenever you couldn't see the moon it was snowing. Fierce windchill this morning, currently -1c and snowing
