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!

    Just for fun the showers are now intensifying as they pass north of 101 land 🤣 😂

    Of course. It all makes meteorological sense. They break up over the heightened elevation of a Dunbar chip-shop but as soon as they get past Edinburgh they intensify so the good folk of Helensburgh will probably end up with more than us at this rate.

    But I'm not bitter. Much ! 😱 😇

    The clincher from here is being able to watch them track up the Forth 🤣

    There are some smallish hills (180m) just north of Haddington, maybe that's your culprit?

    Ditto. We look across the Forth to Fife. The last shower that passed by gave me the shape of a middle-digit in its cloud formation.

    Persuaded my wife to go for a pre tea walk in the sun just before our heaviest and most prolonged shower of this spell. (I knew from the radar it was coming😀). Eased off now but more incoming.

     

     

    This made me laugh - I do exactly the same sort of thing.  Planning on the same tonight, but post tea - looking at the state of the radar it may be a bit trickier to judge than last night up here though!  Looking forward to the reports from further south over the next day or so 😊👍🤞

    Yep. Just about catching some of that here too. Fairly light but settling easily enough.

    Just been out for a wander in Cumbernauld (I waved to Aggy 😂), definitely more snow lying there as expected but also quite nice to see blue skies on the way back (think the next lot of snow is moving in so the clear skies won't last).

    No doubt they are missing us but SE - NW?

    The streamers all point NW and all seem to move in that direction

    My best guess is that Cumbernauld is right in the middle of the heaviest stuff in terms of north to south, but at the very extreme Western edge of it, will still see plenty for sure, more than me I'd imagine

    It's almost always under the big blob of snow from my experience 😂

    Speaking of big blobs of snow, the radar is shaping up very nicely here and the snow's just come back on properly...

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
