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

Went down to the harbour in the last shower on some pretext or other (vis Capt Oates NOT) and both of us looked like snowmen (ahem snowpeople if you don't mind) after 5 mins. Settling a bit now so there's no excuse for anywhere not to have snow (prob except @Ravelin and @Hawesy and thereabouts).

Steady snow on for the last ten minutes mostly grauple with a change to larger flakes now .There also appears to a subtle change from a westerly wind to  a more north of west direction beefing up the showers as they cross the Firth. Currently 0.5c

Anytime the intensity gets going and it’s starting to stick it stops ?

I still think you’ll get a cm or 2 tonight. I’m in two minds about that, on the one hand I’ll be delighted if you get a measurable snowfall. On the other it would leave me alone as the sole snowless regular on the thread.

:D

Ha, got a few flakes falling here now, but by the looks the radar the blob is breaking up so not likely to be much more than that. Need more, stronger, blobs!

Ok... so what is a good direction for the snow-starved south-easterners - (if you'll forgive me for that horrible lumping collective) is it north-east, a straight east, or south-east, all other conditions being equal, which they never will be...?
