Big fat flakes falling heavily, its all going a bit slushy on the ground and I suspect this could be the last time I see snaw on the ground until November time. its been an epic 5 months with some of the best snaw ive ever seen, the banter in here is brilliant and ive really enjoyed my first winter with you all. I shall pop in and out during the summer months and keep up with you all. I hope everybody has a great summer.

Thank you for joining us - glad your move paid off so quickly! You've had quite the winter up there :D

Literally my second worst weather type today An easterly that delivers the slate grey of early schooling and little else other than boring wind chill. Happy tho that those that missed out daan sa

It's been a peculiar and memorable day of weather ?

View east. Angry sky.   Various animal tracks. Mainly rabbits?   View down the Tweed.   Mr Red Robin. Fearless.   Finally, the boy cat s

The radar shows inland Caithness as dry but it's not - third brief but heavy snow shower here in 30 mins. Not sure what's going on with the radar but I'm finding it less reliable this winter than before, both false ppn and what we have this morning. I suppose I notice it more because I'm one of the fools who actually pays NW for the fancy radar. :doh:

The other way round now. Radar looks 'interesting'; the sky doesn't.

Sleet getting a lot heavier again after a clearance of sorts

I assume roads are still OK, collecting son from Westfiled in 3 hours

@Benvironment - you might have your wish! Haven't been checking the charts frequently but looks like another potential spell of rain to wet snow tomorrow - backed up by the Met automated forecast which has heavy snow symbols for tomorrow afternoon:

Ooo lovely :) It's such good news for the higher hills north of the Central Belt. As much as I love winter I do like those spring days when you can spend longer in the hills, see the wildlife returning but still get an alpine experience on the summits due to the coires and ridges still being loaded.

My daughters are away up skiing on Thursday. With lots of snow forecast tonight and tomorrow they should have a great day as it brightens up. Miserable here though with steady cold rain just now. Just a hint of sleetiness at 3C.

Yep Thursday is looking like THE day to get out and enjoy what's fallen :)

Winter 17/18 continues into day 169 with a max temp of 2.7c and sleet on and off  through out  the day 

I really think that we are going to pay for such a good  winter when  the dreaded midges wake up for the spring cold and very hungry  :sorry:

A really foul afternoon with constant sleet and. all the winter mud has returned underfoot .Cattle all very happy to be inside.  The upside of all this bad weather is paperwork getting up to date and I even found an electronic payment that was still due to me.  The sleet turned more to wet snow in the early evening and its currently 1c.

Just catching up on things after a hectic few days with the family. So glad my Rob Roy Way walk was last week and not this!

We had wet snow in Broughty Ferry last night but no chance of it settling.

Currently at Glasgow Airport and heading out to Zambia for a couple of days. 26c with the risk of thunderstorms. Bit of a change then!:D

Just thought I would pop in to share some good non weather related news. 7 years ago my world came tumbling down, my wife found a lump nothing serious at first so we thought but it soon turned into something that would impact our lives for ever. we have been to hell and back in the time since, I had to quit my well paid job and close down my small business, we lost everything, the house, the car and the life style we had become used too. my wives health continued to get worse and worse to the point that in 2015 I was told to go home and prepare my family for the worst. told if she makes 24 hours it will be a miracle. well the tough old bird made it and after several operations and long recovery she is almost back to the person she once was thanks to a massive amount of medication that she will be a slave to for the rest of her days. well last week I went for a job interview and today the phone call to say "would you like to start work" for me and my family this is massive, while caring for my wife over the years ive been called work shy, a scrounger and all sorts of other foul things. well not anymore. time to find that bottle of buckie me thinks..:drunk-emoji:

Great to hear that story @More Snow enjoy the buckie !

Been a weird spell this last 12+hours or so. Pressure charts and wind direction both saying central scotland is in some kind of east-north-east flow. But precipitation (those recent beefy showers an hour or two ago over Glasgow) has been moving from south-west to north-east, seemingly almost 180 degrees to the apparent "flow". Any technicians in here got any idea how that works ?

Its getting monotonous now we have  a covering again this morning at  0.5c. Going to a fun day loading sheep for Skye in all this mud and getting an arctic lorry tuned on a slippy muddy farm road is going to be a challange..
