Snows tonight are blanketing Scotland, promises a difficult morning commute!

SNOW WARNING FOR SCOTLAND WITH .5-2″ TO LOW LEVELS, 1-3″ OVER MEDIUM HEIGHT HILLS, 3-6″ OVER HIGHEST ROUTES OF HIGHLANDS, S. UPLANDS, PENNINES, SNOWDONIA

After a warm autumn, we finally see our first taste of winter as cold northwesterlies push in the first sleet and eventually snow showers of the season. Over the next 12 hours, rain will quickly turn more sleety and finally snowy and even low elevations of Scotland will see snow and even a covering by late Sunday or Monday morning, these snow showers will push south blanketing Cumbria and even points surrounding such cities as Manchester.

While a coating to perhaps as well as 2 inches falls in some low lying spots of the Central Lowlands (M8 corridor), the higher ground both to the north and south may collect a decent 2, perhaps 3 inches, the highest routes including those in the Highlands, possibly Fenwick moor in Ayrshire, the section of M74 between Happendon and Abington services and surrounding areas of the Southern Uplands, as trans-Pennine routes may collect 3-6 inches. Roads will turn white quickly as well as icy so I urge caution. With the first snow and ice events of the season, many are unaccustomed to the conditions and there’s an increased risk of an accident. Be safe.

A battle between models and opinion continue over this winter

“I would be more concerned if the Arctic reservoir over Greenland and the Pole wasn’t as strong as it is now.. It’s turning increasingly bitter and all this must go somewhere, all we need is a flip in both NAO and NAO and that’s got to happen sometime right”?


I’m not going to hide the fact im nervous because at the end of the day, my forecast may turn out wrong, very wrong just like anyones can but the NAO ensembles showed a turn to negative yesterday, not so much today. Frankly the models are really all over the place and so far my predictions have been accurate. What I’ve been wanting to see happen this autumn and up till now has happened and perfectly on schedule so I dont see any reason to change. I don’t personally agree with chopping and changing anyway, Dont try fixing something that isnt broken, i say and don’t go purely with the models. That’s why the Met Office and other long range forecasters have went wrong over recent times!
