     Morning 

    Nice to see all the snow pictures this morning.   looks like we got snow showers for most of the night here @edo   going to see how much snow we have now, I’m guessing 10cm.   hope we get a few more showers today 😊🙏🏻

    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!

    Anyone give me an update for fife for the next hour or so? Downside to being a home carer is the huge amount of guilt you feel when you can’t drive in snow 😭

    I think you are right in the firing line next few hours. Looks like 2 lines, one through Fife into the m8, and one south of Edinburgh to north Lanarkshire

    Looks like the convergence line has shifted slightly south so the shower activity in the central belt will be a little further south than last night along that line

    Thank you. I’m not going to risk it. The sky is so white it’s light outside and it’s currently very heavy snow.

    A good shout, there's reds on the radar near Fife and even green/yellow here was producing whiteout conditions.

    Think if I was in Fife this morning I'd stay home it looks nasty for a good while

    Funnily enough it wasn't the thought of snow that had me up early as I guessed Aberdeen wasn't in line for much overnight but it was the cricket😂

    Even in the gap between the two lines we seem to be getting snow, not as heavy but I think we're starting to see more convection bridging the gap between the lines and some cropping up at the head of East Lothian as well.

    Some chill in some locations this morning a -14 or 15 very likely in the usual spots though I'd say the coldest night of the year is looking like Wednesday to Thursday morning some bone chillers looking very much on the cards as the wind drops out 🥶🥶🥶🥶double digits below for quite a few

    For central embra we really need the line to come from north Berwick but it’s more from Dunbar which takes the heavy stuff just south over Dalkeith,  Currie, Penicuik and N Lanarkshire. That’s where it seems to have been most of last night and so far this morning

    I am hoping that some of the more “generous” models prove to be on the money over the coming hours. Several of them have quite a bit of snow down the eastern coastal strip by this evening but there is limited agreement.

    Woke up to not really any more snow than when I went to bed last night. Think Edinburgh has been unlucky with the shower track overnight, but a heavy snow shower has just started so hopefully this is changing!

    Looks like it - it's been similar here, a couple of wee showers since 3am but not much otherwise on the same track, and what we did have cropped up once the shower was to the west of Edinburgh.

    The flow is basically as it was further east with maybe slightly more of a northerly tilt out in the North Sea, but further west there's a bit of a bend in the isobars that's causing some movement from southeast to northwest and presumably weakening the showers. This looks like it will be flattened out in the next couple of hours so I'd expect more of the showers to get through intact as the day goes on.
