Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

Standing an impressive 5ft 5in tall - the kids have done well with limited resources ?

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

Just rain showers in Edinburgh ? I wasn't expecting snow to be honest. 

 

Next week could be interesting for many. -8 uppers showing on GFS from Monday with snow at sea level. Assuming the jet stream does fire up as predicted and flattens that high pressure to our south

Great reading the snow reports from home! Fingers crossed for next week. Weather on the turn here in Tennessee after 2 lovely ‘summer’ days. Forecast to get rather wet and windy!

Smattering of snow down to the bypass at Hillend this morning at 7.30am just as it was coming light. :ninja:

Yup still potential for the west next week for a couple of days of snow showers following the storm of Monday tracking South and dragging the cold in behind. Looks like flow could be quite strong and push some showers quite far in land.

Especially through the Clyde/Forth valley,,,snow showers should make it to Edinburgh in that flow,,,assuming it all works out that way,,still a long way off in weather terms ?

I mean, a hill degraded by too many deer is still a hill degraded by too many deer even when covered in snow.

Not a fan of deer then? ?

The story of Winter 2019/20 with snow above 150/200 meters for 99% of the time with hee-haw for the majority on low ground. (When snow is forecast)

@bigsnow is spot on - all us sea level folk need to move to higher ground! ?

Do you think the Met Office will name this storm @shuggee ?

Lovely weather today at last! 9c, plenty of sunshine and light winds! 
Strange clouds sitting over the higher hills to my NW.

I really hope these snow charts from the GFS become reality next week!

@Mr Frost interesting cloud pic I wonder if that could be lenticular clouds (certainly the top 2 clouds)

Yes I think so mate! Walked down the street for a closer look 10 minutes after I took the picture and they had vanished! ? Seen quite a few of them over the last few months.

The saddest part of the picture I took was no snow on the hills/mountains. They had a wee dusting at sunrise this morning! ? (Height of hills/mountains in the picture...385 meters, 547 meters and summit peeking out between them is 664 meters!) 

Hopefully early next week they are covered once again.

I mean, a hill degraded by too many deer is still a hill degraded by too many deer even when covered in snow.

It looks as much to me like a land degraded by historical deforestation and contemporary grouse shooting as one degraded by deer.

Not unless they're on my plate!

Did you see the headline yesterday about how many deer there are in Scotland? It's no wonder theplace is f&&ked.
