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 ?

I'm off to Westfield again tonight, which could be amusing then.

A proper 'late in the game' miss from the Met Office this one!

Yes.   Was quite surprised when a got up at 7.30am.   Can honestly say that it hasn't stopped all day but luckily of the sleety variety as there hasn't been much in the way of accumulation.

Could this be the last '3 cheers' for @Hawesy's wet baws? 

@HawesyCan keep them!   I am seriously in need of some heat and sun now.  

We are fast approaching halfway through spring and it definitely hasn't sprung yet!   The last 'year without a spring apparently was 1976 which led to a fabulously hot summer.   I would happily forfeit spring if I was guaranteed one of those!

Farmers must be really struggling with this.

Light dusting of snow in Inverness this morning but melting very quickly.

Surrounding hills are very white and picturesque, especially when the sun comes out between the snow showers that have been the general theme of the day.

Really does feel more like the end of February than the start of April.

Some snaps of Ben Wyvis and surrounding hills from the A835 just outside Maryburgh.

Just home after a fairly ropey bus journey! Easily up there with the heaviest falls we've had all winter! By my reckoning the 2nd heaviest fall by depth! Just shy of 4 inches and still falling!

WED.thumb.jpg.787b58b80f56d9d22659963ea635bbe2.jpgStill piling down here, and the elect keeps going off. Husband ready to emigrate. The A7 still has the odd car going by but very slowly, I think the moor must be dodgy in that wind.

I think that it was 1975 that had no Spring. Snowy Easter and the famous early June snow then a good Summer followed.  I was working in Speyside in early April with 45cms snow lying and later skied the Coire Cas at Cairngorm on the late May bank holiday. Spring 1976 was sunny and dry with May being mild.

It was mainly wet and slushy this side of Soutra apart from above 250m or so, but that's all changed in the last hour.

Absolute white out with huge fat flakes and accumulating quickly now at fort SS.

Starting to ease off now! Ended up with 11cm. Incredible for 4th April :D

Leaving work early was a good call - had great fun with the kids for (surely) the last time! They wanted to make a snow 'Shrek' as they watched the movie earlier in the day :D
