    I think it was Blast From The Past about a month ago said it would be mid April before it would become more springlike and I took that message and have tried to include it in the forward plans for the farm as like him I am a believer in the suns influence on the weather. and it is becoming quieter as this year rolls on.

    Currently overcast and 4c

    Just logged in to brag that I still have the remains of a snow pile in my garden and now I find we might have more? Don't know whether to be pleased or blasé.

    Foggy earlier but now hazy sunshine. Not much wind and temp 4C.

    Contractor arrived yesterday, after weeks of nagging, :), to cut the hedges, - a bit late in the year. To be fair he had tried to contact me in Dec while I was away from home.  Now a horrendous mess of chippings to clear up today. I hope it remains dry.

    Nest building well underway for the Jackdaws.

    Hmmm...... looking cool and dry for most of Scotland at the weekend if I'm seeing the charts correctly. Could do with the high sitting a lot further north. Although to be honest I'd be quite happy with a cold, sunny weekend if the snow chances stay to our south.

    A bit of hazy sunshine in the morning with light winds and temp up to 8C just before midday - bit of a change in the afternoon with wind picking up, temp down to 6C now and plenty of low cloud rolling in giving a dull cool feel to the day.  Not the most inspiring weather.

    Yellow warning for snow on Friday in Central Highlands down to North Angus and Highland Perthshire. Just cold rain for here though I guess. Feeling mild today but getting breezy. 6.8C

    The GFS 12z thoughts on snow chances in the East Friday into Saturday. Looks like the only real chance of any snow falling over the weekend. Looks like rain to snow as the colder air pushes in with higher ground obviously better placed. Pretty unremarkable stuff but the charts tie in fairly well with the Met forecast.

    The weekend looks like the Least from the East, but you never know.

    When does the lowland snow patch competition start? Pics were taken this afternoon:

    Yeah, think you have pretty much nailed it @101_North. After what we’ve seen this winter this barely warrants a shrug of the shoulders at this stage. :D Having said that I do admire @edo for insisting that our appetite for snow should remain intact right into.....May?

    I’d be quite happy with a cold dry weekend, got to get some walking in!

    Still some patches in coastal NE Fife but they are dwindling now, can’t match what you still have.

    A very bleak day  dull windy and cool with a maximum of 7c .Absolutely no sign of anything green in the countryside. Currently 5.5c  Still a few small patches of drifts in sheltered spots. Only positive is that the ground is slowly drying up.

    Looks like the ECM, GFS and ICON models are all showing a northwards trend for this weekend. Wouldn't take a huge amount more northern correction over the next day or so to put the central belt firmly back in the game.

    Arbitration needed here... 

    I saw one very determined drift yesterday, right by the A9 on the south side of the Dornoch Firth, just above the strand line. Other drifts on higher untreated roads still a big nuisance in Sutherland. 

    Still really gusty this morning. Chimney's whistling again.

    Apologies for quality of the snap. Here's our hardy snow pile still hanging on in there being closely monitored by Harris the cat (aka The Ginger Whinger).

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
