Good to see some areas getting a bit of a top up today - while this was sort of on the radar (to pardon the pun, especially given the amount of false echoes I saw nearby to start with) it wasn't reall

    Imagine this event had remained as snow we would have been digging ourselves out later ❄️😆

    Well, delighted to see so many having some of the white stuff, right at the beginning of winter.

    Business as usual here though - torrential rain that woke me up, rather than Thundersnow... hey ho 🙂

    Any snow we had has virtually gone with that burst of rain we had a hour ago. Never heard any of the thundersnow last night (not even sure if it snowed TBH) looks like another big dollop of rain is not that far away

    Torrential rain with  some hail mixed in over Edinburgh just now, crazy weather!

    It's a horror show out there now! Always a price to be paid I guess and it was fun while it lasted 🤣

    Temp has gone up a fair bit since this morning. You leave EK and drive into Glasgow earlier on and no snow lying yet Lanarkshire at a standstill and it was still snowing but slowly turned to rain. This was a fairly large band of rain that spread from the East this morning. Was looking to see if this was a Warm Front or a Trough. The Trough would have seemed more likely due to embedded Cumulonimbus that caused Thundersnow in places. But Met Office surface pressure showed Warm Front symbols with the low to the South.  But I think BBC showed different.

    Very interesting I’m wondering if it was due to the triple point that also helped the thundersnow develop image.thumb.gif.ae4029d2b40a9347c2d2850bdd32f750.gif https://www.theweatherprediction.com/habyhints2/530/

    Can see that area of CAPE that was around at that time 53CDB20C-499E-4E23-904C-87BA3A088045.thumb.png.a74e620264bb31da12331561d729b7c5.png

    looks like more will develop in the North Sea later today and through tomorrow so more chances for thunder image.thumb.gif.8a4b737a3ddf3ddde2a6f3b44fd1d916.gif

    Yeh that could have been the reason for your Thundersnow. However the rainfall radar didn’t show much in the way of red this morning within the rainband where any lightning activity was.

    Jealous of those that got thundersnow last night not too far away from here as the crow flies. I can however report thundersleet for this location😟

    I certainly would have been since it has rained all day.

    Surprisingly we still have a fair amount of heavy, sodden snow lying around the house and in the area. Son says the dog walker reported around a foot of snow at the top of the hill behind our house, and he went for a run around half way up in a good few inches. 

    Even had to clear the driveway earlier as we hadn't bothered this morning since I expected it all to thaw given the forecast.

    Short snowy video 

    and the thundersnow, rumble at the start but main bit at 6:55 with the flashes and the thunder (the one before I started recording I didn’t catch as I had tried to sleep 🥴🤣was a proper shotgun rumble). 🌩

    Thundersleet is it? You were lucky. All we got here was fart-slush, which believe me is every bit as unwelcome as it sounds.

    Temperature now 4.7deg.C down from a maximum today of 5.3deg.C at 15:15, humidity 93%, wind 11 to 15mph northwesterly with a maximum gust of 22mph half an hour ago, pressure 986.3hPa rising quickly, rain today totals 10.2mm so far and the dew point has risen to 4deg.C.

    Some very heavy rain here this evening at 5.3C. Nice to see that it is still heavy snow at road level at Glenshee. Hope that they can come to some compromise that lets the ski areas open if the snow is good enough, otherwise they will be in big trouble financially.

    Just in from a trip to Newbridge, roads are lethal with so much standing water. Would have been quicker in a sail boat doon the M9. Big contrast to this morning over towards Livi. 

    Lightning strike alert we have just started pinging strikes near Auchengarry.

    Just had a big flash of lightning and a loud extended clap of thunder. The third night in a row that I have heard thunder. Very unusual for this time of year or indeed any time if year. Still raining away at 5C.
