Hi I’ve got a few days off so I’m heading up to Scotland in the search for some white stuff,not sure where best to head,fort William,was thinking with it being more in the west,is it high up there.or was looking at Aviemore,will that still get the showers from the west as it is a bit further east..Any recommendations would be appreciated 

                                          Cheers jason

 

What are the chances of the A82 being open tomorrow? does it close a lot due to snow? I am thinking of going to the Kingshouse Hotel in Glencoe

 

Just be prepared. The A82 can be nasty in winter conditions (high up and exposed south of Glencoe) but the way the weather's going just now, I'd say you'll be fine. Winter tyres will be very handy whatever the next few days are like.

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 watched the latest BBC forecast and they are still predicting +85mph gusts for central Scotland this evening. I don’t see it happening myself but who knows? 

They either know something we don't or they're peddling fake news for likes and clicks.

Probably the same recording they’ve been showing since 7am this morning. Another example of how lame the bbc has become I really cannot believe you can get a criminal record for not paying for this utter tosh.

oh and the weather here in the trossachs is pretty standard February fare

The BBC used to be the gold standard AAA+ when it came to the weather but if this turns out wrong they're scraping a ZZZ- at best and only cos that's as low as my random rating system goes.

I stopped paying the tv licence years ago. Never had a visit, I doubt they could find the place.

Couldn’t agree more catch thought it was just nostalgia.just the other day they had nearly all of Scotland north of Glasgow covered in snow with temperatures of 9c I mean what the actual F is that all about.Back in the golden generation Macaskil .Fish.Giles to name but a few you just knew that the 1snowflake symbol with all the country covered in the rain symbols meant snow above 3000ft

Rant over away for a nice 16oz popeseye (rump in England) steak and chips

Latest from Leuchars WSWly 44mph gusting 63mph.

Edit: Tay Bridge now closed to all vehicles.

They must have had a gust over 80mph if it is closed completely. Feels relatively calm in my garden just now but was out a while ago and it is pretty gusty where exposed. I felt the car rock with a gust after switching the engine off.

I notice that the warning for snow tomorrow has now been extended down the Tay to here. Must be because the wind is SW or WSW and has a much narrower band of mountains to cross from that direction. East Fife still not in the warning area though KW and Hawesy.

LOL snow shield activated image.thumb.png.16ecaaf92eb0a90cbec13f5264270c4b.png. Though usually a warning is a curse for snow here so perhaps no warning will mean we actually get snow ?

Some dafties parked their cars foolishly at Riverside in Dundee

Yup, the stupidity of the general public is really something else. The same down here and the response is ‘I didn’t realise it would flood’.

 

A wild night last night, a fair few trees down. Also was rolling on the ground after some (C)*** tried to headbutt me. So quite wet aye

 

Hopefully we see some snow in the next two days!

Yeah just drove through that, lots of hail here on the cars at home but didn't see any while I was driving.
