    At least you got the joy of living in a location that whichever way the wind blew regarding snow you were in a streamer sweet spot I wasn't jealous I promise 😜

    I got the same heavy shower that Mair Snow got.  Left a covering.  More blue sky now so more definitely sunshine and showers but if they're all as heavy as that  so be it.

    Just had a decent snow shower here in the city (as opposed to the earlier graupel). Hopefully there will be a few more of these showers coming in off the sea in the coming hours. Hard to tell from the radar and satellite imagery but it is a possibility.

    You deserve some of the white stuff this season, Doc; it's been in short supply!

    Latest Met Office forecast sees heavy snow for parts of NE Scotland tomorrow and Tuesday. 👍

     

    Which forecast was that?

    Had a pre lunch stroll down to the river. A skiff even down at sea level. Just a few flakes and bits of graupel in the wind. Temp 1C, wet bulb -1C and dew point -3C here. Not sure about the 850's right now?

    Encouraging signs here on west coast. Not expecting anything til tomorrow but we’ve had very light flurries all day and a proper shower has now made it through here! Nothing to show for it on the ground but good to see.

    Can't remember who it was but they were on about the Mid level Humidity and indeed it looks like things will pick up significantly overnight and tomorrow. This continues till Wednesday morning before showers begin to ease again. Accumulations should start happening tonight for most who get a few beefier snow showers.

    I reckon you'll see, at least a few flakes😂😂

    Seriously though I do think the models might be underestimating the westward extent of the showers. Take the current radar for example - the UKV initialised 6 hours ago has this:

    And yet the radar shows:

    a) much more extensive precipitation up the east coast than modelled and b) there's a moderate shower already past the M74.

    Once you factor in the low dewpoints and I don't think you can really rule out a covering anywhere over the next 4 days. Not promising anything, but if you can get a shower through on this flow:

    I wouldn't rule anything out

    That didn't last long, already had a few flurries 🤣
