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!

    Interesting update from the Met, the mild spell turning into a interlude perhaps?

    EDIT - Hmm, the current UTC time is 15:14 so we now have documented evidence of time travel, or just someone overly eager to post the update!

    Summer Sun and others do seem to get the afternoon updates ahead of time and before it shows up on the actual site. I have looked overnight sometimes and found the 04.00hrs out early. Here just a light shower incoming though not much on the radar after that.

    Well it's taken about an hour to get here from Dunbar on the radar 😄... slow moving but might hang about a bit and pack a wee punch.

    Technically I think that it should be minus but as I had the same yesterday go for it.

    Here the showers have died away since lunchtime though there is still cloud to the East and the temp has crept up to +0.5C. Radar shows some light activity nearby.
    Still a bit short of our depths at end Nov to early December 2010 when we had 5 to 6 days of convection beginning with the night and day of thundersnow and far more disruption but definitely the second best event here this century and probably some time before that by a mile.

    I remember staying at my Granny's house near the Morgan Academy, as a kid, sometime in the late 70's or early 80's, and seeing buses sliding backwards down the Fofar Road. The snow was up to my knees, but I can't remember how small I was then...

    I'm fine if this was it. 2010 caused massive flooding when it melted (in places), considering the flooding that happened before the snow arrived, this lot will likely cause some problems when it starts to thaw.

    About to hit here. You can't beat that slightly orange light that is cast when a good snow shower rolls in on an otherwise sunny day. Also a few more building towards East Lothian so maybe a few more showers before it's done!

    This is going to be an interesting night, we've gone  from -2.1 to the current -4.9c in just 40 minutes, and that is before the full setting of the sun.

    This is quite mesmerising, every minute it's changing, now -6.2c.  Lovely sunset as well.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
