    Right, just for fun and I’m keeping to Fife only, there’s too many on the thread these days for a full round up! 🤣

    Snowfall predictions tonight through Wednesday (total snowfall):

    @Benvironment 30cm

    @Big Innes Madori 25cm

    @Blitzen 20cm

    @Kirkcaldy Weather 12cm

    @ghoneym 10cm

    @LomondSnowstorm (Fife location) 18cm

    @Snowlover2 20cm

    @Hawesy <drum roll> 5cm

    Ach I’ll throw in Dundee too:

    Apologies to anyone I’ve missed out!

     

     

    Bringing this back to review (original post Saturday). Some over/under estimation (and definitely under for Dundee) but overall I don’t think I need to hang my head in shame! 😊

    Amazing stuff hitting Coatbridge now, after a few near misses this is a hell of a thing with a potential direct hit 

    I should catch that as it moves westwards! Fingers crossed anyway haha

    Showers are just exploding into life as they hit land from the forth estuary. 

    That massive blob just there erupted from something which appeared quite insignificant. 

    Great to watch the showers exploding into life from very little.

    Notice how this particular blob doubled in size within 10 minutes. Definitely being enhanced in the Firth.

    My god what is the blob towards Edinburgh doing, absurd intensity!

     

    Still very heavy stuff here, brilliant if this is the end of it.

    Ha, just been hit by this science fiction vertical blob from here to Kirkcaldy that was all graupel. It was only the noise on the window that made me even look out. Pesky mini blobs like this are popping up, I'd be as happy to get a good frost in now to be honest.

    The evening BBC news showed merging showers pushing through the central belt from a ENE direction right through til late morning tomorrow... Graphic backs it up also

    Pretty decent stuff falling right now and that’s before the gift from Coatbridge arrives!

    Very interesting.... When you see how much these showers have exploded out of nothing.... Can't wait to see how this batch reacts as they hit land. They're starting out far far beefier than what we're seeing just now 

    Get that Amber warning back now 👍

    Just hit here. Heavy so far. For such a short shower it's leaving it's mark!

    Well these blobs to the north-east are not without interest and certainly moving in the right general direction. Might be the last hurrah for here but no chance I'm waiting up to 3AM to find out! Que sera sera 😄

    Quite the sight, first time ever we have had GCC in gritting the roads in our streets and at midnight of all times. How exciting.

    Certainly not! Fife location LS was at 5 inches at lunchtime prior to some very intense showers, no measurements since but, you can decide, could be 18cm? 😂I also think there's a reasonable shot they get more too
