The met office and BBC both saying snow possible tomorrow morning even to low parts of the central belt.

The Euro4 brings it up to just past Glasgow-Edinburgh but the WRF isn't as keen with it coming as far north. If the Euro4 is right there could be quite a bit tomorrow morning, I am sure we'll be keeping an eye on it in here ?

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

It's not about the size of the measuring stick it's how you use it. But when it comes to snowfall depths size does matter ?? 

Very handily I know if my middle finger is knuckle deep then it's exactly 4 inches.

I'm not sure this statement helps the situation ?

Leaving from Liberton at 8:30/9 to Dumfries.

Class, should see some snow! Not sure what road to take but I know A702 (From Crawford South) has only just re-opened an hour or two ago so not that one

Heavy snow and hail here 

Hail or graupel? 
Graupel is really common in the East Neuk when we see ‘wintry showers’ (so not that common then!?) I’ve probably seen more graupel than snow in my time here! ?

We normally have a good view of the Pentland Hills from work but could hardly see them all day so they must have been getting leathered with snaw, it cleared up just before finishing time and they looked amazing and very white.

I must try and take a camera with me to get a long range shot.

I think it was graupel actually, was hard to tell with it blowing about so much ? remembering back to the BFTE there was plenty of graupel then.

Had to leave cows inside today as we had mini lakes in every field after last nights continuous sleet. Started feeding wintering sheep some hay as well.

Finally getting light showers of snow this afternoon at 1.5c as sky clears a bit. Hills round us too are solid white. A frosty looking sunset too. so hopefully ground will dry up a bit again. Surface water has mostly gone today as shower activity decreased.

This last shower has settled on the grass and bare soil so we have a dusting and with a little streamer to the west coming towards us maybe a little more this evening.

A nice sunny afternoon here in Dunoon this mornings thunder seemed to help clear the air we've had no showers all afternoon just sunshine. I took a few photos with my phone of the snow on the hills.

Result HC - get to go out in it at last...

Got back home to additional 4cm. Must have pelted down in that lot that passed through at 11am/12noon. Thursday morning? It says 6cm of snow at -1 or 0C before 8am... We shall see.

Currently -0.4C. So that's my twenty fifth air frost.
