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!

    About 6 cm in Dunblane. A fair few of the showers have slid past to the north and south of here. Take care all on Dundee 👍

    Stunning shower for the last hour, intensity is superb and depth has rocketed up to 22cm.

    Radar indicates it will clear in the next hour or so, could really get used to this type of weather!

    Going by Fubar News and Aberdeen Guardian its chaos on the roads.

    There's a big red blob on the radar heading straight for my house...mon the blizzards.

    I’m away to head home from Work. Secretly hoping it dings it down on way home 🤣🤣

    Aye. Other areas north of here, west of here doing much better. Game not over yet but locally this could end up being a kind of mid-table easterly performance. Not up with the best here but ho-hum, no greetin' about it 🤔

    We didn't clear the drive this morning as there was only a covering and it was the same when I got back from walking the dog around 2pm. It started snowing not long after, and I've just measured 8cm outside the front door, which I'd say has all fallen in the last 2hrs. I'm not surprised that the likes of Aberdeen, and especially Dundee, are chaos since they have been under similar blobs much more frequently.

     10cm+ here in Kemnay in just the last hour not seen the likes for a decade or so

    It could intensify the showers coming over the forth and boom into Edinburgh.

    I’ll emphasis the word  “could’

    I think that's certainly possible, things a bit quiet on our line here with the shift to a more due easterly flow meaning we're having to contend with too much land and not enough Forth to really allow much to get through. An even 23cm here, which I think is a bit better than an average easterly for here, but would be good to round up to an even foot...

    There was more in my bit in early December 2010 but you would gave to back a long way before that for similar. Just measured 33cms in back and 15/16cms on the path cleared this morning.

    that's it! 2010 couldn't remember the exact year but know it was a decade or so!

    we hit 30cm+ this morning after the overnight, I have not measured again since this afternoons scenes

    btw i was here on NW back then but site has changed, though I always know where to come for a true picture

    Aye, these showers are frustrating though, skinny vertical blobs that we get through too quickly. Looks like we've maybe got maybe another 24 hours at best before it all dies away.

    A very good event overall. Not half as amazing as the Beast from the East but still one of the top 5 or 6 largest snowfalls I’ve experienced in the past 15 years. Compared to 2018 the showers have been more infrequent and lighter overall with a mixture of fluffy snowflakes and smaller powdery snow. There’s some drifting but not on the scale as 2018. It seems we have clipped the edges of showers so I’m hoping to get a few direct hits of heavier showers. 2018 had a maximum of -3C which was the coldest in the records since 1973 for February at Glasgow Airport. Today the temperature didn’t get above 0C which is the coldest maximum temperature of the winter so far and one of coldest on the past 35+ years at the airport. The impressive streamer around Dundee is reminiscent of 2018 and worthy of a red warning. I wonder if we could see something fairly similar further south.

    We only need a few decent prolonged blobs. These 5 minute things are nice to look at but that's about it.

    Moderate sized flakes in Barnton, Edinburgh at 1650.

    interesting that the wind has eased off so the showers may become slower moving too
