Only about a cm or so settled, and it's easing off, but it looks like winter outside so I'll take it ?

Some sleet and snow at home, not amounting to much. Snow line for lying snow on way to work was about 160 metres, but even then it was very slushy.

P*sh! ? All rain here ? I will definitely remember next time that when the dew points look even the slightest bit questionable DO NOT GET MY HOPES UP! and to help myself with that I came up with a handy little rhyme, if they ain't 0 or below you ain't getting snow ?

Snow line round here seems to be about 90m+ or thereabouts but falling as snow right into the city center.

Aye, settling well at Dreghorn, but slushy here at Riccarton.

There's quite a bit of snaw in the borders, it seemed to get progressively heavier as it passed over. I kindae followed it during the commute. 

Edit

Ootside lauder post office earlier.

My wife is reporting wet snow falling back home in Tarves.  Only rain in Aberdeen though.

Could have been decent here but it just never really got going.

 

Up at 100 meters (perishing wind, horizontal graupel/sleet/snow) - nothing settling but there was snowfall! Had a look around earlier this morning and seen that 300 meters and above was the place to be as there was a thick cover. (Didn’t have time to head up that high)
Really need a few frosts this week - fields are like muddy swamps! 
Forecast looks good and the freezing level looks as though it will hover around 200/300 meters this week - hoping to get up on the higher hills to enjoy proper snow on the ground! (400 meters and above)

Good to see some of you with snow on the ground! 

Still a mark of 1/10 for here this Winter! ?

Sometimes I manage to get really good crisp and detailed high resolution captures. Check this out of Italy @ 8am this morning. Need this type of capture for UK when snaw is forecast. EDIT: Better if you open pic then right click.

After an early morning of rain/sleet it has been heavily snowing fat wet flakes for the past hour or so. They are catching on the grass, but turning the perma-puddles in the yard into sludge.

I suspect the local roads will have quite a covering, which is annoying as I have to go out, soon, on the important mission of posting a birthday card for eldest grandson.

Alford and Aboyne academy's are sending some pupils home early due to the weather. No idea how bad it is as I'm stuck in Aberdeen where it's raining heavily.

Strathdon and Muir of Fowlis busses so the usual  inland areas. Nothing happening in Banff, unsurprisingly. I suspect getting home will be no problem, possibly a bit sketchy if I go over the hill behind the house (400m).

The Suie, in winter conditions, is not for the faint hearted. I had a nightmare coming down there in a range rover 10 years ago. Nappy required ?

Seems to quickly change to snow as soon as you exit Aberdeen.

Been a long time since the Met Office showed this as the forecast for here....

image.thumb.png.32e063eafa0a8421e3483a1637ed2472.png

In reality, its very marginal.  Was rain until about midday then heavy snow since then.  This is now starting to lie but is also melting at a fair old rate as well as temperatures are hovering round 1c.

Ground conditions at the moment...

Which makes it the deepest snowfall for here this winter - dreadful record really.

North-West Italy have had a mostly mild winter away from the mountains but how about this for a winter temperature:

It's also been announced even on the Italian FB weather pages that they're going into lockdown over the threat from Covid-19 across the north of Italy. All education, sports events, concerts, etc all cancelled by government order for a week initially, probably longer. We'll be the same soon.

Managed to get to Perth,  but pretty hairy. Aberdeenshire side was fine but from the kirriemuir turn off to blairgowrie was bad. Ploughs on the case though.

Nothing here, just drizzle. Most snowless winter I have ever known in 30 years here.
