    We are right on the edge of the snow here.  Delivery driver says it is raining in Ellon c. 6 miles away.

    The Scandi high on Thursday/Friday seems to be increasing in strength run by run, the GFS 6Z makes one of the closer attempts I've seen at extending and, with a few tweaks, potentially even intensifying the easterly.

    This is what I'd say is the key point to keeping the easterly going:

    There's a lot going right here, with a negatively tilted trough and some signs that the monster low in the Atlantic is trying to disrupt, with that little secondary low forming to its east. With a slightly stronger Genoa low that sits in place a bit longer, and the disruption a little bit earlier/further southeast, we would see a linkup, with the secondary low sliding under, the main low staying out in the Atlantic (as seems likely now anyway) and this flow continuing (there's some pretty nice looking convective snow potential through Wednesday and into Thursday btw, just as good as anything early in the week):

    What we get following it isn't Atlantic driven by any means, and the cold air actually comes back in from the southeast after this too, but it really really wouldn't take much for it to turn into something epic:

    What are your thoughts about the next 72hrs? Well potential 🤔

    A very similar set up to what we have now from Feb 1991,,,I remember this being a snowy easterly up here ❄️❄️ The SE of England was also buried,,,,,anyone remember Francis Wilson ramping up this event 🤔

    I remember it being snowy too, in Glasgow. Looking at the temperatures though it wasn’t particularly cold with Leuchars recording no ice days and only one day with a max below 2c. This makes me wonder how the immediate coast faired. I think the coldest air remained further south with that event.

    I used to love his breakfast tv forecasts, he loved ramping up the snow. 😂

    I've actually heard that a place called Coalcleugh near Allenheads is the highest in Britain

    It hits 525 metres ASL, that's seriously high. It's classified as a hamlet according to a quick google search but there only seems to be a couple of houses there. 

    After the heavy snow in the early hours, woke up this morning to sleet and wet snow. Another hour or two and there will be no marginality.

    Good morning one and all, and what a fine morning it is. Sun's out, rain's stopped, wind has almost disappeared and we have the rugby to worry about rather than the possibility of snow. Plus we have a valid excuse, should one be needed, to open a few bottles of beer at lunchtime and snuggle down in front of Italy v France, which should be an entertaining interlude before the main course at tea time.

    Temperature 4.1deg.C up from minimum of 2.3deg.C at 07:47, humidity is 87%, wind 2 to 5mph with a max gust of 18mph at 05:23, pressure is 1016.8 rising slowly, there's been 0.2mm of rain today, cloud cover is 7/8 and the dew point is at 2deg.C.

    Flurries of snow here - nothing settling - yet apparently Westhill is snowbound 5 miles away 😂

    It’s a bit of a damp squib here so far - can only hope that once this system moves southwards and colder easterlies get established that we will see some decent shower activity in the coming days.

    I really need to go and do some reading so that I can get a better understanding of what’s being said. Sometimes I think I’m following it all then someone puts a chart up that confuses me. I’ll get there eventually 🙂

    I have tried to understand better by reading the model thread but then find I am more confused than I was in the first place 😂
