Dont worry we still have the will it / wont it to come on Thursday with lower pressure moving up from the south ... ? Has been good to get some snow this winter though many of us could have had some decent lying snow if everything had went right but you win some you lose some, still might catch a few showers tomorrow.

Aye, @101_North is right in the middle of the great Thursday morning snow riddle coming up ??

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

Sunny day today with a max of 5.5c, but feeling bitter in the wind.

Really gusty winds this evening - going by the completely subjective criteria of rattling roof tiles its actually stormier this evening compared to Storm Ciara over the weekend.

Still dry though, the West Aberdeenshire snowshield is impressively powerful.

Just been out to Insch and back to pick up youngest from a club and it's wild out there. Snow showers definitely making it this far, with moderate snow being blown horizontally. Even with temps of 1-2C it's not really lying though, even on the higher parts of the road. Trees have really taken a battering this winter with plenty of evidence of broken branches on the road, but nothing too large. 

Any snow that was lying this morning had gone by the time I got home from work too. Even Bennachie looked depressingly brown. Can't think that I've seen it white at all this winter, which in the >10 years I've lived in this area is a first.

One remarkable feature of this cold spell here is that the temperature has sat at between 1.3C-1.6C for a couple of days while the sleet has lashed down on and off but far more on than off. Close but no rollie let alone a cigar.

Here is my temperature graph since Sunday night and a good example of being just the wrong side of marginal temperatures.thumb.png.125f097599b6bf1673a0e91104eab18c.png

Didn't make any contact with the spirit of @bigsnow then? ?

Haha. If my partner’s eyes roll back in her head and she shouts  “BRING ME MY SNAW!!” we’ll know he’s been summoned

? I imagine he is currently cursing at the radar as the Aberdeenshire snow shield holds firm ?

As the wind turns a bit North of West some showers are likely get through to parts of Aberdeenshire. Unfortunately it also means they are less likely to get to my area?

He'll be going through usernames for next year! Moresnow? Crap. Used it ? Bigsnow? Oh baws! Used it ? Mairsnow? Bigsnaw? Lotsofsnaw? Naesnaw? Ahhh stained glass window..... ??

He should go through the list of 421 words ? just noticed this one which is the opposite of what we have had over the last few days :oldlaugh: "Lying-storm A fall of snow which does not melt away quickly but lies long on the ground."

Morning all,

I finally saw some lying snow in the East Neuk! Spotted some above 250m on Largo Law this morning ?

To be fair the majority of winters I’ve had in the East Neuk have been without lying snow and I did at least see some flakes falling from the sky on Monday!

Dry and breezy here and all is remarkably green! A few big thunder rumbles last night with a couple more mini power cuts. I see Dennis will be coming to tea over the weekend. I wonder if he'll be as wild ( NOT! ) as his wee buddy Ciara. I gave up trying to keep the stove going in the kitchen yesterday. More smoke blew down the chimney than went up it. Had to open the windows to let the smoke out, as well as any heat! So a pointless task really. Back to using wee fan heater in kitchen until wind drops, which may be a long way away! ????

Settled snow above about 150m inland in Caithness. I'm at 100m. Temp about 1C, much less wind and the showers are fizzling out. Well they would, wouldn't they, now the temp's forecast to drop?

edit: the radar lies!

Light snow shower on now! Typical that when we run out of heavy ppn the snow starts settling on impact ??

Same here, almost managed a covering. I can't complain as we're going back up the hill to Narnia soon.

Snow all the way in from home to into the upper reaches of Penicuik. Pretty bad round the top above Skirling where the road was dodgy into Blyth Bridge and then Lamancha. Many neighbours' power been off (we've been lucky at cottage shuggee).  9cm on grass 2-3cm on other surfaces.

The usual re-frozen smattering of snow in the grass this morning at home, with the driveway being lethal ice. Still very little evidence of winter even on the surrounding hills.

So far this morning we have had sunshine, hail, thunderstorm and now snow...

The last 3 days have been pretty exciting here, especially the overhead thunder and lightning. At last this winter has delivered something to remember ?
