    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!

    Could anyone help me. Was wondering with the model charts for what does it mean for Bo'ness I’m on the fourth and the last time we got an beast from the east we done well. So how does this one upcoming do for us

    I'd think probably pretty well to be honest, but I'd think anywhere on the Forth estuary especially towards Falkirk/Bo'ness should be looking at at least a couple of inches. If some of the runs this evening come off though, could well be getting close to the totals from previous big easterlies by the end of the week.

    Yes, the drifting was the thing with 2018.  Very dry snow.

    Yes it was just whipping off the fields and covering the road. Watched the road get cleared and then 30minutes later it was covered again 😂

    Really hard to get a feel for this one to be honest, I think you'll end up with at least a wee bit because it does seem like the wind direction will change a couple of times, and the convergence lines seem likely to shift about as well which always helps with keeping the snow distribution relatively even (and deep, and crisp etc.).

    Just briefly, I think tomorrow will be telling in the MetO thinking in terms of what they think in terms of convergence zones, and streamers etc. Should be Amber warnings out by tomorrow night..... Then we can patiently wait on the red 👀👀

    2010 was pretty special from what I remember. -12/13 temps and snow day after day. We stayed in Kilmalcolm at the time and I dug the car out most days before work 😂

    The thing that surprised me in 2010 - was that this helicopter at Borders General Hospital, was apparently unable to fly because it was too cold!

    Some actual, real life, weather to report - it is in fact snowing here. The radar isn't showing it (of course, HC) and it's very light, but might be worth checking the lamp post since there seems to be a couple of line of, albeit probably snizzly, snow showing up on a sort of Clackmannan Bridge-M80-East Dunbartonshire and a Lauder-Lanark-EK sort of line too

    Nothing here, although we have the led lights ootside and they are rubbish
