    So true! It's the fisherman in me - just one more cast LOL 

    Roll another one 101, just like that other one... 

    (those were the days)

    We had one moderate shower about 9 o'clock and tiny flurries since so there's a covering, no more. The radar suggests maybe more but fks sake it's half one.  Feed the fkn cats and find the pit.

    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!

    nice mate good going for one night, i am confident my earlier predictions to the perth crew of 13 to 15cm will be achieved.... i had 9cm at 8pm. 

     

    no drifting though wind very light here

    Your amber warning doesn't even start for another 90mins 🤪 and check the blob heading your way 😜

    @101_North have you had a look at the predictive radar? The blob due over Edinburgh at 4:05am is massive!

    😁 although i cant remember last time had a warning and it was justified, not met bashing just seems to be the way, looks very justified this time unless at 3am the North Sea says thats plenty.

    I would like it to go a slight bit south, as it feels as we keep catching the very edge of these showers - at least there’ve been a few and the grass isn’t showing through any more.

    It's quite something how consistent it's been at that, and I do feel for folk just a bit south who have had far lower totals. The next lot of showers look like they have some more southerly tracking elements again - it's a fascinating watch on the radar because you can actually see the showers converging at the mouth of the Forth, hence why so many of the blobs look somewhat patched together. 

    I also see more opportunities tomorrow, especially afternoon/evening, for a bit further south.

    and a lot have commented on the radar misleading, i just had heaviest shower of evening and the radar was showing light precip, the shower had not broken up how it was portrayed on the radar.

    im actually considering a measure before i fall asleep 🙂

    Woops... 

    I am just back from the city centre, I took a wee detour on the way home from work to take some pics at George Square. The roads are bad but I was sensible enough not to go down the roads like what that idiot done 😆

    I was going to suggest that Tesco is 24 hours.... but of course you can't buy alcohol in the middle of the night.....

    Agreed, seems to be more underestimating today, although could be that it's just blown a bit so you're effectively 'stealing' the upwind snow - I suspect that's what's happening here, since it looks like maybe an extra inch or so compared to what the radar shows but everywhere just a bit to the east/northeast is closer to what I reckon our depths are. 

     

    Big blob delivering here, big flakes and no real sign of let up❄️

    13cm now was 8 at 8pm and never really snowed properly till around 10.30 so 5cm in just over 3 hours from around 4 big showers. 

    I don't think the 15cm ruler be big enough in morning and can't find the tape measure

    It's quite fascinating now. Watching showers arrive just south of Dunbar, and when they hit land, suddenly they really intensify. Oranges and reds showing on the radar. The same is happening right now just south of Berwick too.

    Thumping down again. At almost -3c it's very fine snow but lovely to watch!

    Cheers! I'd think especially with powdery snow, less dense etc. 

     

    That shower over Edinburgh is a pretty incredible example of convergence, if you look back it's actually 3 showers that have come together!

    To my eye there are now three main streams, it may be coincidence @LomondSnowstorm but there's that one making landfall just south of Berwick just like 2018:
