    The showers are slower moving than last night which helps if you get hit with one. 👍

    It's possibly helping us less in Coatbridge since you're retaining a bit more of it but they do seem to generally be getting through to Glasgow with ease. I would also say - that crazy blob heading through Fife (I'll expect lamp post reports from my mum 😂) is very much heading towards a good chunk of central Scotland...

    Watching the last blob approaching. Bottom half on a perfect track for here. Then the bottom half just fizzled out. Looks like the showers break up as they head over the Eaglesham Moor. So nothing reaches here but the top half stays intact and hits@Ross B and @Stormeh
     

    I blame the wife for choosing where to live. Mind you, she’d have us on the Ayrshire coast if left unchecked!

    Just back in from the evening torchlight walk. Cold, crispy and a few flakes in the breeze. Photos taken in complete darkness. Amazing what the camera on the phone can pick up.

    Good photos. Yeah we're just catching the edge of them before they completely die out. Probably moderate snow compared to further east but the path and driveway are covered over again after I cleared them earlier.

    Any chance you could do an hour long version and post it on the Irish thread to give us even the pretence of snow!

    Yeah it’s looking that way the NE tilt is now kicking in 

    Potentially a long wait 🤔

    Yeah I thought that myself the shower activity further NE has fell away a bit 

    It's a very confusing radar, that last shower over Edinburgh very sharply darted northwest before it hit us but it does seem most of the movement is NE-SW. I think somewhere in Central Scotland will end up getting a pasting but very fine margins. 

    Sadly we don't have the sort of tool @metallikat34 has for the US, would be bloody useful about now!

    I think it is!

    The Dundee to Perth Road looks brutal.
