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?

Howdy. Wee covering here. Some seriously heavy showers around tonight. Was snowing at sea level Skye earlier according to my missus, which really didn't happen much in winter itself. -0.5c

1C, snowing and a thin covering lying on the cars and grass.

Just went to put the dog out for a pee and was rather surprised to find it snowing heavily and lying.

 

Skies cleared now and didn't last very long. Probably gone by morning but nice lamppost watching all the same.

World turned white up here this morning as well. The birds nesting in the hedge are not amused.

2.9C at home this morning with the remnants of a wet covering on the cars and select spots. A rash of heavy wintry showers rattling through on a strong wind so far, a real mix of everything but on the wetter side of the spectrum. Hills to the west of Kemnay had a white covering of wet looking snow as I left for work as did anything with just a bit of height (roughly 200m and upwards).

OK I'm less furious with the weather for snowing at home! After going to bed to it pishing down here's the current view out the window in Banff! Aye not the Moray coast one!

CairnGorm Ski Road closed at the Glenmore gates and the A939 Lecht Pass now closed also. Piste Bashers now working at the Lecht as runs filling in.

Better afternoon with a bit of sunshine but a very strong cold N wind.  Some more showers appearing across the Firth which are  looking snowy again with the grey clouds and yellow streamers. P4250497.thumb.JPG.36602b6919466b0027f6116425f59be0.JPGCurrently 4c

 A lot of snow lay all day inland probably above  about six hundred feet.Hills over a thousand feet got a fair plastering. 20170425_185016.thumb.jpg.5c7024534207b1784e2fd0aa28b18ddc.jpg20170425_185305.thumb.jpg.badf6d1a3979fa82bfbe504f03e8e500.jpg20170425_190602.thumb.jpg.0ba2b1c7e6fa47d134c82cdd698f9031.jpg20170425_192446.thumb.jpg.b462a91f6bfc3cb458ad5a4076d8f775.jpg

Looks as though the mountain  snow will survive for a few days yet with night time temperatures falling to freezing up there.Notice too that the projected heat for next week is getting watered down. Northerly and easterly winds are always more likely in spring With the experience on the farm for the last few years that the seasons are running two months late then I think we could still get a cool May. Currently overcast and 3c

Breezy but quite sunny today so far with broken cloud and around 3C at 8am. Hills to our west looked nice with their white covering this morning but I'll guess it'll be gone by the time I get home. I tried to take some quick photos on my phone but they turned out rather rubbish.

No idea, place was really run down for a long time.. was he the Skoda enthusiast? No white stuff, and in fact no rain to speak of this whole month.

The temperature peaked at 10C today, uninspirational for late April. The GFS doesn't look too inspiring for temperatures into next week, ECM may be warmer for a few days at least. 

As for rainfall this month, it's been fairly dry with perhaps 10mm of rain so far?

The ECM agrees with you, perhaps a warmer few days and then we're in the chiller until at least the second week of May. Decent northerly blocking bringing east winds we could only dream of in winter:

May snow a possibility, although that's not unheard of.
