Despite what the radar says, it has been raining in Glasgow during the past half hour.

Its wet bulb temperature, its too high. It needs to be at freezing or below. Quick math - say its 3.5 degrees in Glasgow centre - relative humidity 91% currently (from netatmo live map) - Then dew point is 2.2 deg C - to work out wet bulb  we need the dew point depression so - temperature minus dew point  = 1.3 - you then divide this number by 3 = 0.4333 - and subtract from the actual temperature - so your sitting at approx 3 deg C wet bulb temp. Not cold enough for snow.      

This is the problem our sothern friends will have tommorow also.

I was just outside the ground temp is showing -2.2deg/C and the cars are all frosted over, its slightly overcast so pointing the thermometer at the clouds it read -19.9deg/C.

So its cold enough...just need something to fall from the sky and it'll stick..!!!

Just in from a trip to Bargeddie, and it is raining, but seems to be turning a slushy mess on the pavement. Tomorrow going to be fun on the roads

Ok... it seems that it'll get colder yet so snow should be coming, rather than more bloody rain or sleet. More fun to be had before then end of the month and then there's still plenty of winter left.

I went up the street earlier and it was like an ice rink - the 2 minutes of sleet had frozen to the pavements. Shocking.

The polar low seems to have disappeared on the latest GFS run. Also, very marginal snow for the end of the week showing, if any.

Still there but in a slightly different position (north of Scotland) - as I suggested earlier I wouldn't take any positioning of it too literally given how hard they are to model / predict

GFS precipitation map until Saturday. Really dire, it was too early to get excited about the end of the week. It could change again, but honestly I don't have much hope.

Radar shows snow south of Edinburgh right now, it just clipped the bypass. Nothing in the city centre at all

Looks like it's all going north of here judging by the radar at the minute. What's fallen here so far in any case has been sleet at best 😥😪

The coldest uppers follow the front unfortunately, the snow showers coming in behind won’t reach us on a NW flow 😏

Great blob over Glasgow at the minute! 

Looking great for you today mate! Wish I was back in my old home in Croftfoot! In the past everytime you got snow - I got it five minutes later! 

Showers lining up nicely out West!

Showers are making it well inland and look as though they are keeping intensity - Surely only a matter of time for Edinburgh?

Was great last year for that whole area! Glad to hear you have snow! 

Sod all settling on the ground here but hopefully when the low clouds lift from the surrounding hills/mountains they will have a good cover at least.
