It may have been the UK's sunniest May on record and sunniest month on record but it was only Scotland's 10th sunniest May and 21st sunniest month.

Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

Standing an impressive 5ft 5in tall - the kids have done well with limited resources ?

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

Pretty incredible Spring overall - our (Scotland) sunniest on record. (Dating back to 1929)

North East of Scotland in particular on an incredible run of above average sunshine duration and below average rainfall amount.

Even going back to Winter 2019/20:

Read this information below on the Met Office blog earlier...quite the stat.

It has been the fifth driest spring for the UK overall, but some counties in north east England and eastern Scotland have recorded their driest spring in a rainfall series from 1862.

@Kirkcaldy Weather great forecast but a few of us would like that yellow box further West. ?

Oh and mon the Cromdale!

You could get used to this weather.

Topped out at 24.2c under mainly clear skies in the afternoon.  Even the nagging wind died down a bit.

Lovely evening as well.

@Kirkcaldy Weather I dug out this pic from 2015 for my weather page this morning, just wish I'd had a much wider angled lens to get the whole thing in one pic. A repeat would be awesome.

@Mr Frost I don't remember such a regular run of days with little or no cloud than we've had in April & May. Usually if we get decent weather it's always a sunny start and a sunny finish with a lot of fair weather cloud during the day. We've had so many days with just blue skies and more blue skies.

Dull here too today .Hopefully the rain will arrive soon as surface of ground is just talcum powder. Still not too late for rain to help crops recover but I just hope it remembers to stop .Currently 15c.

@CatchMyDrift great pic ? looking at the 00z runs of the wrf nmm and the euro 4 and a big downgrade unfortunately not too sure why but CAPE values don’t look great and best looking cell still looks like near my original Stonehaven-Montrose area. I probably should have thought about it being from the north as it really isn’t a common direction for storms at least not here I can only really think of one that came from the NW probably about 4 years ago but apart from that ? guess we will just have to see what develops on radar but if it is a bust I will hold my hands up ??

Looked as if cloud was set in for the day here but if anything trying to clear again. Breeze is more noticeable today however (and thankfully more refreshing) yesterday was so humid (I thought so anyway)

Very different day.  Overcast, light winds and currently 14.4c.

Radar alleges that we have been under persistent rain for the last hour.  In reality, a few spots of rain on the ground and that's it.

Was hoping for a bit more rain that this, looks like I will need to break out the sprinkler after all if things don't improve soon.

Been cloudy this afternoon but so far just a couple of spits and spots of rain with no heavy showers hitting us. Temps have fallen from 20.3C at lunchtime to17C now but it still feels very muggy.

You can almost see it happening in real time. We've fallen from 19.5 to 15.9C in just 40 mins!

Bone dry here all day (so far) and a high of 20C.

Rain to my NW should reach me late evening/night - hour or two of quite heavy rain expected.

How about this for a boring/mundane weather outlook though? Wake me up in a week please! ?

All the best everyone - hopefully a return to Summer warmth by mid month at least. (Even that is pushing it though on current models/outlook)

And the downward trend continues, 11c here now. There’s been a little rainfall here but it’s been light. Still any rainfall is significant after a very dry spring.

Pretty intense cell just formed to my south west, can see it out of the window but no thunder or lightning. Looks like we're in for a bit of heavy rain either way!

22.2°C lunchtime, slowly dropping until the big 8°C drop in 40 minutes as the downpour passed over. Feels lovely now at 12.6°C!

Rain was very heavy here just after 20:00 until 22:00! (In the clear now)

I am sure it was/will be the same for many others!

Wee bit of fun I just seen on Sean Batty’s Twitter - you don’t need to have/register for a Twitter account to take part.

Just a case of clicking on the above and filling out the wee electronic form - short and sweet. (Click on the blue forms link within the tweet)

If there is anyone that stands a chance getting close on all three questions...it is the finest group of weather enthusiasts throughout Scotland. ??

I just submitted my answers - Lerwick was the tricky one!
