My Weather Diary of May 2013

1st May: May is one of the finest months of the year with warm Spring sunshine, quite long days, usually fairly dry but prone to thunderstorms and some unsettled weather. Usually the first proper tastes of summer weather arrive at this time of year but also the last of the chilly Spring days and cold nights and even some wintriness. Last year, the first two-thirds was very chilly for the time of year - with some snow - and there was some heavy rainfall too but towards the end of the month there

My Weather Diary of March 2013

1st March: Welcome to the first day of Spring! Spring 2012 was a season of contrasts with a dry March with record breaking warmth, a dramatic turnaround with a cold, showery April with a snowfall early in the month, a very unsettled start to May before a return to record breaking heat at the end. This year, Spring follows what has been a cold winter with the first snowfall in late October. Between now and the end of May, we'll see a great transition in the weather and nature. We may see the last

My Weather Diary of June 2013

1st June: Today is the first day of summer 2013. After a cold theme to the first 5 months of the year, will 2013 and bring a well over-due good summer? Today, there was a few heavy showers earlier in the morning and afternoon and some passing cloudy intervals but during the evening there was a good deal of late, summer sunshine and blue skies. Around dusk, about half of the sky was clear with some patches of cloud cover around - quite similar just now with some groups of clouds moving in from th

My Weather Diary of July 2013

1st July: Welcome to the first day of July, like August this is traditionally one of the warmest months of the summer but it can be renowned for thundery downpours and humid conditions aswell as hot and dry summer weather. It's been a while since we've had a truly great summer month. The last was July 2006 - although June 2010 was decent and last month got off to a good start - and since then we've been more familiar with classic winter months than summer. And in the past few years, there has be

My Weather Diary of January 2013

1st January - New Year's Eve: Happy new year! At midnight, the first moments of the new year was cold and chilly westerly breeze. There was a fantastic moon over Glasgow but gradually cloud cover increased from approching showers from the west and the moon was covered. You could see the lanterns moving in same direction as the clouds and also very quickly too. Then it started to rain. Looking at the car there was some sleety stuff or rain with a wintry element landing on the cars and during a he

My Weather Diary of February 2013

1st February: It is now the final month of winter as the days are noticeably longer than they were a month ago. This winter has seen a cold first half of December followed by an unsettled second half full of flooding problems then the New Year arrived and the first third of January was very mild, the SSW contributed to quite a significant and prolonged cold spell before a return to floods, rain and wind to finish January. We've completed one chapter of the year in weather and it will be interest

My Weather Diary of April 2013

April 1st: After an amazing March which rounded-off and was the highlight of an interesting and consistent season for cold and snow, we now enter the month April and are now into April. However with the never-ending winter of 2012/2013 and a memorable March, the landscape is still stuck in winter with snow on the Campsies and some drifts remaining on the walls and the countryside and vedgetation remain in winter with litte growth. April is very much a Spring month and right at the middle of the
