    Hopefully we are back to normality for Winter 2021/22

    And then, it will be 12C and dry....

    Up her at 200m+ it's definitely all snow and with the wind getting up it's pretty wild. Temp is slowly creeping back down again, currently 0.3/0/0C but lying snow probably a bit too heavy to be drifting. Falling snow is arriving at a 45deg angle at times though so will start piling up unevenly. No intention of any of us going anywhere so the driveway is being left until tomorrow at the earliest.

    Hopefully once darkness takes hold the temperatures drop up this end of the valley. A degree or so lower and it could be game on here. 

    Visibility has been decreasing for the last hour or so, can barely make out Cairn William.

    Hard to imagine an incoming cold spell as I'm looking out the window at the snow slowly retreating up the hill. Was at 200m this morning but now probably 250m. A hideous, damp day but thankfully, so far at least, we're avoiding the really heavy rain.

    I remember 2010/11 was more cold than snow, especially in Inverclyde. 2018 was a stonker!

    Out of interest which one of those events does this set up look more similar to?

    At least you can see out your window, mines is covered in raindrops thanks to the gusty winds 🙃🤣

    Frequent but light showers was only mentioned on the current warning for Monday.

    It is a strange one - looking at the updated Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian and Borders...scattered snow showers?

    Updated Central, Tayside and Fife sounds more promising - mention of sleet though. (Surely only reserved for @Hawesy and @Kirkcaldy Weather 😁😉

    As others have said all about nowcasting! These updates are absolute cannon fodder...sometimes! 😀

    This covers my area too 🤔🤔
