looks like the pink area is getting a bit bigger on the radar, some in here could get a surprise later and into tomorrow.

Come here pink bits, come to daddy... For northern coastal dwellers, it's a matter of waiting to see if the ppn dies out before it turns to snow. Tomorrow will tell.

4 o'clock: 4C and the sky is darkening with a funny brownish tinge to the minging wet greyness.

Worth keeping an eye out tonight after 22:00 for those living in the Edinburgh area, especially on higher ground (101_North and Penicuik blizzard).

Lots of rain today ground really needing it but a real cold wind off the Firth at  3c. Will it turn to snow tonight?

Looking at the Netweather rainfall radar I've been 'in the pink' since about 3pm. I can assure you though that it's certainly not even been close to snowing here, with temp reading at 4:30pm being 4.5C. That is a little lower than forecast though, so hopefully it'll turn to snow later this evening. I might even wake up to a covering again if I'm really lucky.

4.7C here.  Have a funny feeling I might get some slushy stuff overnight.

Not the best of pictures but awoke to heavy snow again after yesterdays brief dalliance with a thaw.  We had about 2 inches with more through the morning before more rainy sleet in the afternoon but Northerly gale setting in now so expect more snow soon.  Just lower down towards Rogart just slush and not a flake A9 to Inverness.  Second picture of the thaw yesterday.

I was trying to find some information on how the latest ECM looks for Scotland in the MT but can't seem to find much. I am no expert at looking at the charts but the ECM looks good to me for us in Scotland with plenty of snow chances for many areas.

Looks poor for us in the NE.   Dry or rain!

Like I said this morning, looking primarily at ECM based forecasts, for the NE there's lot of cold around next week, but not much precipitation. When precipitation is forecast, like tonight and tomorrow, it's just slightly too warm so it's rain or sleet. Hopefully that'll change cos it is marginal. 

Sleety outside at the moment.

I’ve been traveling through the model chat, totally no idea what to expect, so I came into here and now there look like some snow possibilities. At least a 1 on the snow depth chart , that’ll do for starters . (Knew I shouldn’t have bought the new sledge 🛷 for the kids 😂)

Hard to follow anything in the main thread unless you live in the south...

So from what I see it's looking pretty cold and snowy from Tuesday onwards up here??

Also, why are they reporting temperatures in fahrenheit? This is not the USA, stupid Daily Mail always trying to scare the public with their nonsense weather articles.
