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

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

It's flaring at the Mosmorron petrochemical plant near Cowdenbeath.

Ah.  We don't need all this fuel we just spent billions getting out of the rock under the sea, we'll just add a significant extra dose of CO2 to the atmosphere.

It has been great in Edinburgh, proper blizzards moving in from the west all day. Goes to show we can get snow even with an extremely strong polar vortex and jet stream (provided it tracks low enough). 

I strongly suspect the snow showers will merge into a longer spell of rain later on tonight, but back to snow showers tomorrow.

Yeah looks as if its just turned to sleet /wet snow here as that more organised band moves in. Hopefuly it changes back  to snow but it was expected to get a little warmer overnight.

Yep. Suspect this advance blob could be snow here and that main band behind could be sleet.

Yup looking at my radar prediction seems to turn to rain in the organised blob..... Typical but more favourable tue night so hopefully a big blob tue night that is snow and then kids can enjoy a day of it as off school. 

 

The lightest of dusting here, my mate in Fife near dundee has more and he's at 100m so really does show the elevation difference and how far these showers can move across the country giving good coverings.

Still heavy snow here but not settling now. Wet bulb must be on the move!

Edit: Settling again ?

What a crazy run home. Rain absolutely battering down leaving Greenock and largely rain except a little slush over Devol Moor at 200m. Snow was much lower heading to Lochwinnoch and road was a mess of snow, compacted snow, slush and huge amounts of standing water. If I wasn't sliding, I was aquaplaning. Here at home, last shower was wet snow with a slight slushy covering.

Showers here today have mostly started as sleet then turned to snow as they got heavier then died out. The last one started as snow then turned to sleet as it got heavier and died out. A sign of wet bulb and or the dew point rising perhaps?
