    For us Glasgow southsiders looks like the bottom edge of each blob is inching southwards. I'm tracking showers making landfall at Dunbar as those with our name on it. Stressful times as kids expectations for the morning are now sky high...

    The problem with that is they have a longer track over land before getting to us so we don't get the heavy showers. We really need a slight change in wind direction to more of an ENE'ly/NE'ly to get some good depths, but from what I could see on the few models I looked at, this doesn't look likely!

    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!

    Four times more than here. The world has gone mad 😉 About bloody time you got some though. Is that the most since 2010?

    Not sure why some of these embed and some attach? Either way tremendous full on Beasterly action there...!

    This one is MOV - that's an Apple Quicktime format.

    HTML5 only has direct play in the browser (ie without any 3rd party apps needed) with MP4 (h264), OGV, VP8 and 9 (WebM) and AV1

    I thought they were swinging that way a little earlier but the showers coming from the Forth are still north of here over Glasgow and those tracking a bit further south across the Lothians are dying before they get here. 
     

    Did have a light shower a little earlier. It didn’t so much lie but rather the wind blew it into neat piles.

    Yeah, from what I could see on the charts they were ENE off the forth but then move more East to West as they cross the country. Can't really complain as we have a light covering of snow, but still hoping for some decent snow depths by the end of tomorrow...

    I'm only tagging you in this as you live as close to the airport as anyone else I can think of. The TAF for Edinburgh Airport looks awesome, +SHSN means a chance of heavy snow showers and it is fairly rare to see this in the TAF for that location:

    Interestingly the TAF for Glasgow Airport also mentions heavy snow showers, another rare sight.

    Excellent. Hopefully good news for here too!

    Another shower closing in here. On the radar anything running down the A1 from East Lothian appears to be a direct hit!

    Don't think they can get much heavier to be honest! But probably staying at a similar intensity where the convergence zones are, maybe easing a bit in between times or less frequent.

    I saw a fax chart somewhere earlier for thursday with what looked like a front moving down from the North East so maybe one last hurrah at the end of the week for us.

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
