Another cold start to the day at 3c.After a day yesterday with rain/snow all round us inland we finally got a shower through the night. Just laid the dust.

 

Another arctic sky this morning with small wintry looking showers to the north. A small snow shower showing up behind  the cliffs at Dunbeath003.thumb.JPG.b8775937935833ddc8cf889e5c2b8642.JPG

Fabulous day with very clear  arctic air.  Still a few light showers around. A slight breeze which was cool at times.My favourite weather for working outside Finished planting out the garden and shifted cattle.

A lot of rain fell last night, I don't have a rain gauge but I'd say at least 20mm. Hail at times too. The ground was very muddy today. 

Lovely Saturday in the capital, got up to around 13 but felt very warm in the sunshine. Light winds and vibrant skies. 

More great weather from tomorrow, then Monday-Wednesday highs could reach 20C even in Edinburgh and definitely further inland. Staying dry for the whole week, but cooler from Thursday as high pressure moves to the north

Just posted this photo from Kenmore photography in the mountain thread. Shows the recent cold with more new snow in the Lawers range but also how dry it has been. Loch Tay is very low for this time of year.

We're at Loch Lomond at the moment and it's been dry recently. The water here is about 6ft below the level it was at in November when we were here. The rivers around here are very low too, it is completely different to six months ago (not unsurprisingly for the times of year).

It's a cracking day here at Inveruglas. I had a nice walk along the beach while the dogs went for a swim 😎

Now we're off for a tour to the slopes of Ben Lawers then up towards Schiehallion.

I noticed a pleasant, milder 'feel' to the weather this evening when out for a brief stroll with doggie; a nice sunset too with a Song thrush singing away in the background.

Another splendid day of light winds, plentiful sunshine and a max temperature of 15c.

Plus summer has arrived in another way - the first house martins of the year are circling the house this evening, just over a week earlier than last year looking at the diary.

 Noticed that the birds were in full song here this evening too. Sounded like dawn.

Sunny and feeling quite warm here out of the breeze. Max of 14C from an overnight min of 2C

Do hope some make their way up here! They are approx. one month late already and I've seen very few around elsewhere. It seems they may actually be in decline.

Glorious end to end sunshine pretty much since Saturday morning. (Long may it continue)

Nice sunset last night and yet another warm and sunny day followed.

Martins certainly here, arrived on Sunday, swooping under eves of house checking out the old nests, and sitting on the telephone wire chattering away whilst I was working outside the garage. Not noticed a swallow yet. 

Warm on leaving work, 19c or so, and a lovely evening here tonight. Bees finally getting a good chance to swamp the massive cherry tree that overshadows thier hives now that the weather has warmed a bit.
