Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    A bright enough day but not as sunny as it's been recently so feeling a bit damp now. Snow still covers the grass at the back, which shows that it's remained cold to freezing for the entire week.

    Temperature 3.1deg.C up from -2.7deg.C at 03:36, humidity 87%, wind 0 to 5mph generally northerly, pressure 1032.1hPa falling slowly, no rain in the last 24 hours, 4/8 cloud cover and the dew point is at 1deg.C.

    Don't they all!?...😊

    Possibly, but not in shops or whilst driving I would guess.

    Outrageous Met Office update...never seen them go into so much detail.

    Sounds very much like a high risk/high rewards outlook 

    Tuesday 19 Jan -Tuesday 2 Feb

    Confidence for this period is low, though there is a signal for Atlantic mobility to weaken which perhaps allows conditions, at least in the north, to become drier and for temperatures to be closer to average. However, there is still a chance of cold air outbreaks in the north as flow across Scandinavia pushes across the North Sea. This would confine more unsettled conditions to the south, as well as milder than average temperatures. Further, this boundary between the cold and milder conditions could also allow for some significant snowfall where the two air masses meet.

    Hopefully it become reality and the Scottish thread gets the goods! 

    They forgot to mention "rain or cold rain for mair snaw" 😂😂😂😂😂

    I can only conclude that we both lead a very sheltered, clean living life or we are both as thick as mince!!😄

    So are we quite confident of some widespread snowfall on Thursday then?

    I'm not sure about this for tonight, can't see any precipitation on any charts I've looked at. Where do local authorities get their information from out of interest?

    It reads like some sort of TAF or automated forecast they have found somewhere online, very random.

    They're just covering themselves after the complaints they've had about a lack of gritters. In reality almost every side road has been untouched since last week unless residents gritted it, most streets in Motherwell are impassable on foot unless you walk on the road.

    Sounds very much like A* *E covering to me. 

    Let's be honest, they've gotten away with it by the skin of their teeth with the temp expected to rise as of Sunday because they would have been under real pressure if this cold was to last another couple of weeks without any time in between to organise again
