    Met o have extended their snow and ice warnings to Friday for the north east.  Snow seems to be just missing us to the south of Aberdeen at the moment.

    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!

    That it would stop that and head back down here 🤣

    Exactly 😂 to be fair it's been ok here, we've had a fairly consistent if light compared to yesterday streamer which seems to consist of convection filling in the gaps in the Forth from the bridges and heading inland, but it'll definitely head back south as the day goes on from what I can see and Lothian and Borders will probably see more persistent stuff overnight as the flow turns more northerly and gets a bit slacker.

    That blob between North Berwick and Dunbar has taken on a little more interest in the last 15mins or so.

    Ugh. I wish there was the UK equivalent of this site from the US. @LomondSnowstormor anyone else know of anything? Use this site all the time for mesoscale forecasting back in the States. Would be invaluable right now.

     

    Me too! Sadly I can't think of any equivalent for here really which is why we're annotating blobs on the radar with Microsoft Paint 😂

    Your theory look sound so far. Appears to be hugging the Forth and not sinking south past the Pentlands as the previous few blobs!

    We're getting quite lucky with the showers. Not overly heavy but snow totals slowly increasing, cars are getting stuck on the road outside as the earlier snow is compacted down to ice.

    @LomondSnowstorm what direction do we need to see a wind shift to help showers reach Cumbernauld and is it likely to happen all the heavy guys going south

    Would agree with this, south side now doing really well out of this. Angle of attack now ideal.

    Currently a procession of families and sledges upto the nearby park.

    Looks from the radar that some of the heavier showers are making it all the way through to Prestwick, Troon and Barassie via us here in East Ayrshire. Whoop whoop.

    heavy snow here now.  I think North Berwick and Gullane are the targets, so we need the showers crossing there on the way in... Dunbar showers may now miss us to the South!
