    That's the best blob we've had all day, incredibly heavy and we're only at the southern edge of it. Hopefully a precursor for more.

    Probably (and this is just a hypothesis) feeding off the slight increasing in surface heating from diurnal effects.

    Quite the convergence line setting up near Dundee! 

    The earlier fax (I think) had that line south of Edinburgh at 1800 so not sure if that's wrong or it starts to sink this afternoon

    You lads have definitely caught it good. You can see this snowstorm approaching looking East from Langfourgin.

    This lot are lined up right at me. Bringing moderate rather than heavy snow and not as windy. This may let the showers last longer though.

    Just not happening so far. Still managed to scrape a few cm this morning though. Fingers crossed for later and that line moving south.

    If I have to watch one more shower split over us... I wonder what's causing it or if it's just random! Not like there are any big hills between here and North Berwick/Dunbar 🤔

    It has lost it real intensity as it neared such a shame but still a decent shower

    Yeah, I'll be honest. I forget how to diagnose realtime areas of convergence. I need some help finding some good mesoscale operational tools in Scotland! @LomondSnowstorm

    Thinking the same thing. I could pretend that I know, and I probably did at some point. But I forget now. Time to open up the old textbooks?
