    Sleety pish now  

    Edit: Heavier now again and snow.

    I haven't been down there for years, is it possible to walk to Linn Park from Clarkston/Busby ?

    Yes, easy. Half an hour tops. Even easier to get a bus.

    Bleh. A cold rain with some sleet pellets mixed in this morning. The orientation of the “streamers” off the North Sea are not favorable at all. Straight north to south motion is flooding is with marine layer air!

    I’ve actually lost a decent amount of snow cover on the pavement here in south Edinburgh, which is a bit depressing.

    BBC Weather App has now changed to show us getting a sleet at lunchtime and then faff all for a fortnight. Diablo he do a victory lap as I type....

    Some beefier showers starting to progressively line up, everything falling here just now has been snow so see how it goes...

    Just cold rain really now! Still doing it's best to snow at 200m+ in the Pentlands

    It better not be another wintry mix! Would be nice to have an all snow (fairly widespread) Scotland event. 

    Have been keeping an eye on it the last couple of days.

    Few snapshots:

    Thursday 03:00

    Interesting to see what becomes of all this on the day!

    Colder air/wintry showers then arrive as it clears through.

    18:00

    All ties in nicely with this!

    Back to the here and now and looking further West - risk of wintry/snow showers filtering through to the Glasgow, North and South Lanarkshire areas over the next forty eight hours. 
    Wouldn’t be surprised if some of us get a wee surprise dusting at some point.

    I am enjoying the endless days of sunshine, few ice days and temperatures well below freezing overnight but it is getting a wee bit boring now - couple/few centimetres for low ground here would be lovely! ☃️
     

    Also noticed Glasgow Airport got down to -8c this morning. Not bad at all!

    Looks pretty marginal for lower ground based on those charts

    BBC weather I just saw agreed with that, rain in most of the U.K. away from higher ground, not surprising given the 850s. All eyes to Thursday then ...

    You can walk from Linn Park to Stamperland. Houses near the river mean you have to walk through a bit of suburbia. You can continue a bit more of the river walk as there is a path at the back of the Overlee playing fields which takes you under the railway line and you come out near Sheddens roundabout.

    Prediction for the next few hours for Glasgow seems to be 1c and rain. Sort of sums up this chilly spell.
