    Welcome! :)

    Previous thread was getting rather long and so the door to a new Scotland Regional Weather Chat thread has been unlocked! Be very  careful as you enter this place; there may be a lot of hail, sleet, blizzards and ice in the next few days, which may cause all sorts of nasty accidents upon your arrival! 

    And don't be too greedy and keep all the snaw to yourselfs. You must think of those lovely Southerners and let them get in on the action! :angel:

    2.9C at 7am this morning in Kemnay and the rain showers had a definite sleety element to them. Temp heading up at the moment before it's due to fall again this afternoon with more wintry showers. Currently fairly sunny with scattered fluffy clouds. Later this evening through into Tuesday morning looked interesting on the BBC forecast earlier. Could I wake up to a covering of snow tomorrow?

    Frankly, despite loving the cold and snow I'd rather it just warmed up now that it's approaching May.

    Snowing here in Dyce now. Quite heavy, probably wet (I'm not going out to check) and being driven by a strong wind. Still far too warm for anything to even attempt to lie though.

    Edit: Ehm, scratch that, it's heavy enough that it's attempting to lie on the cars an some surfaces.

    Just had quite a heavy shower of wet snow on the south of Aberdeen   Not lying at all and has now brightened up considerably.    Potentially a bit more to come according to radar.

    I could be off-topic Jo, but I'm always interested in what the weather's like, in the place I live for more than twenty-years. Also, whatever runs northish-southish up there, has a nasty (wonderful?) habit of ending up over EA, a day or so later...:D

    .Had  an hour of stormy weather with driving snow gale force gusts and a temperature which fell to 0c resulting in a power loss for about an hour.Cattle bedded and fed more silage. Snow started to settle too. No days like it last winter. Absolutely freezing.20170424_130544.thumb.jpg.6a7ea81b25efe5595e4e6d74d37f4f85.jpg20170424_130603.thumb.jpg.3eb017ecd957ab045b7e41c91f2d5809.jpg

    Icicles formimg as snow stopped so icing on the line must have been the cause of the power loss. Currently clear and 1c.Lots of snow on the hills to the north.

    After a bit of a break we've had wintry showers again for the last hour or so. Temp in Dyce stubbornly sat at 3C so not lying, nor at home from checking my webcam. Aboyne temp dropped to 0.2C at 4pm though.

    Have you any idea what happened to Straun; he was there in 2000 and used to water his hanging baskets with a water-pistol!:D

    Much if any of the white stuff?
