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

    Let's hope it's the start of a week of surprises and the old cliche of get the cold in and the snow will follow actually happens.

    ❄️❄️❄️ Verily! It snoweth! ❄️❄️❄️ From what I could see at the back door maybe 3 - 4cms, but it now sounds like it's turning to rain. 😒 So, having scoffed breakfast I now need to get myself into gear to get ready for the weekly supply top up in Portree. Have seen gritters out and about so hopefully the road won't be that bad.

    Morning all. More snow, @mistyqueen what do you think this is? You’re supposed to be a fellow snowless coastie! 😂

    Frosty start in NE Fife, +0.2c in my back garden but -3c inland a bit at Leuchars.


    @Kirkcaldy Weather I was thinking graupel must be a good bet today. I have seen a lot of that here during previous cold spells. We’ll see, cloud is growing to the east.

    Morning all, frosty start on Deeside, currently -2.6 and DP -3.4. Looked to be clear skies when i let dogs out but I've come back to bed as my shoulder is aching. Hoping the snow symbol appearing on my watch for later this afternoon doesn't disappear like yesterday's ones did but not going to hold my breath.

    Well last night was a major fail. Radar showed precipitation but saw nothing fall. Not even much of a frost afterward. Doh!!

    Currently -2.8C after an overnight low of -3.6C so clear and frosty with no wind. There's some beefy looking showers in the North Sea heading for the east coast, but the circulation is that slack they are only creeping closer. Anyone's guess when or if they will reach land.

    Morning.

    Must have been an on/off again type shower here through the night but that's been it. Temp: -0.6c  DP: -1.2c and pressure up now to 976.1mb.   Dead flat calm.

    Last night never looked like being anything special in this neck of the woods and so I drew the kitchen curtains this morning to be greeted with ..... yup, a pathetic pallette of paltriness, that's what. I suppose there is the merest hint of something white amongst the grass, but that's it and it's nowhere else.

    Temperature -0.4deg.C up from an overnight minimum of -1.2deg.C at 08:59, humidity is 96%, the wind has taken the day off (and I don't blame it,) pressure is up to 979.2hPa and rising, there's been 0.6mm of rain today and 4.2mm in the last 24 hours, and the dew point is -1deg.C. Cloud cover is 8/8 but it doesn't look all that inspiring being thin and disorganised.

    Fifteenth air frost at -1.2°C. Snow icy and crunchy now. Brrrrr.

    Cyril our resident woodpecker is happy for nuts and the other shot last night in moonlight (not a bad phone photo!).

    The proverbial 'damp squid' overnight here. Something fell and the slush it left behind then froze solid. Ice everywhere. Snowcover a bit patchier. Overnight low of -2.1°C and currently hovering just below freezing point. Still looking cauld for the foreseeable. 

    "Get the cauld in first..." etc

    Afternoon All

    New puppy got me up at 647 this morning. Two espressos later and some weird (wired ?) notion had me out for a dawn dog walk

    oh my joy to find the mobile battery dead when I went to take the proverbial frosty sunrise photos

    ok so it didn’t snow , plenty of that to come , but just crunching through frosty grass is brilliant in itself

    It begins .......

    Overnight min temps here -0.7 C / DP -1.3C, currently 1.7C / DP 0.4C and have visual of the edge of those cells entering the Firth of Forth, wrf nmm still keen on the activity moving through Fife has a NE-SW aligned streamer into tonight. I find it really positive and impressive  that the North Sea isn’t a million miles off how you would expect it to look in a typical cold easterly that’s with uppers of only -2/-4 model trends currently look like we could double that over the next week and a bit so doing a bit of simple working out possibly double the activity and intensity perhaps, still pondering what a BFTE equivalent would equal 😍 and also even the wrf nmm 2km which is great with convection looks to have underplayed it so worth noting for other models.
