Greetings fellow Scotlanders :)

Another fresh, sparkly thread for you to continue your discussions of the weather in this elegant land! The other thread became very big!

With another Beast bursting out of the cage from the East, it looks like the white stuff could return for some of you. ⛄️❄️

As I often say, please be good and no throwing any missiles anywhere should the weather not do what you want. Thank you! 😏

PS - Also included a copy of MoreSnow’s post in here due to him being the first morning poster on the previous thread and to also help keep the chat going. He hee 😇

Double PS - Previous thread:

Dreich morning.

Strong gusty winds from SE with frequent showers of sleet/rain.  Temperature has actually risen from low of 1.4C at 06:40 to 2.3C now, time will tell if we get lying snow at this level.

A quite unpleasant morning, with a chilling SE wind and drizzle. Temp 2C and I see sleet forecast for later in the day.

Plus I have a saer heid as a result of spending a few hours or so yesterday evening, listening to Brexiteer neighbours droning on  ( along with a couple of glasses of necessary wine). :shok:

Snowing and 1.6C. Just had a rummage through the last eight years of weather station data I've accumulated and this year so far (1st Jan to 16th Mar) is the coolest I've recorded - mean temp of just 2C. Only 2013 came close at 2.2C, and last year was a balmy 4C by this point.

And shock horror another northwards shift brings Scotland more into the mini beastie party. Nothing drastic but snow is snow 

Met office warning now updated and  more of the country shows in warning area. Only a yellow warning though ; booooo ; must try harder.

Persistent rain, now, and foggy to boot.  My view of the hills is obscured but I think it may be snowing up there.

In any event I need to visit the shops. I wonder if the co-op has managed to restock its shelves yet. A few days ago an array of sweaty parsnips were lined up along the fresh meat counter. :shok:

Howling sleety snow showers over the Beef Tub earlier. Went shopping to the wee independent garden centre in Moffat for some planters. Not that I'll be outside much until Monday!

Temps down a degree from morning and now a touch of sleet in the rain. A bit heavier now and ESE wind strengthening again. 2.3C.

Vile afternoon.  Temperature dropped now to around 1C but no sign of snow or even sleet, just heavy rain blowing at 45 degree angle in the strong wind, just the right angle of attack to soak your face even with the jacket hood on :nonono:

Precipitation now changing over to mixture of heavy sleet/graupel, melting instantly upon touching the ground.

Snowing at Abernethy this morning  :yahoo:, now back home and it's (guess what) grey, 3C and very gusty :angry:

What a rubbish end to winter.

I'll judge how rubbish the end to winter is after this weekend. So far so cold and wet. Not a flake in sight but it's early yet.

Hopefully spring is decent when it arrives, parts of last spring were amazing down here. Warm, dry and sunny will do very nicely :)

@Nick L -  'rubbish' doesn't quite convey the depth of feeling in my chosen descriptor. However I do understand that we're all delicate snowflakes reading this thread so quite understand the editing. :p

Snow showers don’t look like getting going properly until late afternoon,,I reckon some places will get a nice surprise 👍👍

looking forward to some warmth after this mini beast from the east 😎

A cold, grey day which felt more January than March although it is slightly brighter at home than it was at work all day.

Doubt I'll see much more than a flurry over the weekend but I might be surprised. 

Not sure how anyone is meant to make sense of the Met Office warnings for tomorrow!

Actually, today, the parsnips were replaced by a few chickens and a plethora of pies and sausages (both round and square). I fancied in the circumstances, a haggis but there were no usable neeps - not even in the freezers - and the tattiess looked a bit weary.

I'm assuming there have been difficulties in supplying fresh produce to stores due to the brisk cold snap earlier this month....but really, is the co-op a failing business model?  :cc_confused: Whatever, I always shop there because it is my nearest provider.

Some of us don't have the luxury of shopping around.
