Published10 minutes ago
Police Scotland has reassured residents in Edinburgh after hundreds of people reported being woken by the sound of explosions.
However, police said that what people were actually hearing was the phenomenon known as "thundersnow".
Two "extraordinarily loud" thunder claps were heard over the capital just before 05:00.
Some residents reported that they thought a bomb had exploded or a building had collapsed.
The sound, which is created when thunder and lightning combine with a heavy snowstorm, also caused dozens of car alarms to go off.
Well, the flurries went away, so no snow accumulation in Alabama yet. Winter however, is definitely here.Winter has officially arrived in north Alabama. Cold rain yesterday and last night & a cold north wind & temps dropping rapidly today.
Right now at 4;30pm its 35 F(1.666 C) and snowing. Whether it sticks will depend on how long it lasts as the temp continues to drop.
Going down to 25 F(-3.888 C) tonight for the low.
Twas on this day at 9pm in '99 in Youngdeungpo YBM Sisa ELS that I saw my first proper dumping. There was a dull thump of thunder and 10min later my Canuck roomie beckoned me out of my classroom to look over the snow-covered rooves from the 5th floor. I was mesmerised. I like fresh snow. Hate what it turns into after a week's compacting.-12°C and snow last night.
Daughter and I have begun to dare to dream of a white Christmas.
