Scotland/Alba Weather Discussion 2019

Recommended Posts

Been snowing here all day but only really a wet covering, with us being just above the snow line. Trip to and from Inverurie revealed some strange variations in snow cover. Snowing in Inverurie but not lying, lying in and either side of Kemnay, then goes green for a bit, then snowy at tillyfourie, then green again through Alford, and finally back to white just before our house.

Kemnay now looking very white with 50p flakes, presume you have bigger, strange day
Is it my imagination or is there lightning going on?

I was in Coldstream this afternoon and it was 12C according to the car. It felt like it was 12C, a real balmy day. Just 7 miles up the road at home it was 7C.

It felt like a loss but at half time I would have bitten my hand off for a draw. Poor cat has just recently comeback downstairs after taking fright with the yelling as the tries were scored in the second half. Mostly from my daughters who were home visiting to be fair. 

Back to the weather. Grass and pavements turning sparkly as cloud clears and a frost sets in.

Got a decent covering yesterday albeit a bit patchy, but rapidly thawing now. Mainly sunny but still the odd sleety shower passing through.

Sleety rain showers splattering north-facing windows this morning. Otherwise a nice day with sunny spells.

Calm day in comparison to the mayhem of the last week. Fairly dry a breeze one or 2 very light showers and not that cold actually

Beautiful morning in Seattle and not a bad view from the office! You can just about see the snow capped Cascade Mountains in the background. Today and tomorrow could see some March temp records broken as it's forecast to get up to 22c.

I know  I sound like a stuck record but afer viewing the model thread which is hinting at some cold N winds in early April I thought I would just reiterate that the frequency of N and E winds is  at its highest in the spring,sea tempeatures are at thair lowest so less moderation of the cold and particularly up here we are nearer the Noth Pole than Moscow and its why we in the north of Scotland often have snowy springs with mountain snow all the way to mid summers day in June.

Its also  statistically more likely to snow at Easter than Christmas and Easter is later this year as well. The plus side is that Arctic air is usually fairly low humidity so the ground dries up very quickly after snow and we can continue to sow into it. Photo taken on the 25th of April 2016 showing a snow shower coming in from the north across the Firth with a temperature of 1c so a very cold day for the end of April.P4250009.thumb.JPG.7bd11a0a5c88002ca1e73a7fcec87cf0.JPG

On the farm we budget for feed to keep the cattle inside to the third week of April on average when there is usually enough grass to feed them outside but with enough back up to keep them in till mid May in a very cold spring.  So we are talking about a seven month winter in the north of Scotland as far as the  livestock are concerned
