Worth keeping an eye on Saturday evening, heavy snowfall could occur.... ECMWF based forecast for Saturday in Edinburgh. 0C level dropping to 200m with snow down to the coast.

GFS P confirms , whilst GFS operational goes for a much milder and drier solution Screenshot_20190123-193716.thumb.png.af53fabe9bce3613a2e95e103ec6e1ee.png

Sparkly snizzle here just now. Looks like this weak front is moving NW-SE and pepping-up maybe.

An Italian site called ilMeteo, their forecasts are based on the ecmwf model. 

A few times it has been more accurate than the metoffice and bbc, for example during the December snowfall event. I also find the 0C altitude quite handy when determining if it will snow or not. Shame that uk sites don't offer such data in their forecasts (snow level and 0°C heights).

GFS18 is quite painful, hopefully we get a better run in the morning... Anything but south-westerlies please!

Snaw cover still intact. Third ice day of the winter so far today, with a max of -0.4C. Average temperature for the past seven days was -0.6C. Winter has arrived - finally. Some more very light snaw this evening and currently -3.1C/-4C. All is well.

All the charts look tidy for next week 🙂

 

A continuation of the generally cold and dry theme or something different?

Still a very wintry scene here - hopefully the hairdryer/rain that hits tomorrow and early Saturday AM does not wipe it all out before the cold air sinks South again Saturday PM. 

Looks very snowy on Sunday for those exposed to the Northerly wind! ❄️
