    Dry, grey and murky all day with a max of 9.9c.

    Wind has picked up noticeably since mid afternoon but nothing to get excited about.

    Looks like it will get a bit breezy at the end of the week, another memorable thing about the weather the last few months has been the lack of strong winds.

    Here it comes, howling down the street and whistling in the chimney....

    Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

    I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

    I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    I'm hiding in the house with all blinds closed and windows shut. I hate high winds and it's worse now that huge bloody tree is just over my back fence 😬

    Definitely tempted fate saying it was nothing to get excited about.

    That came back to bite with a vengeance as its really squally outside and already the bucket has gone for a walkabout.

    Also regretting putting in polycarbonate sheeting in the greenhouse, other half is currently cursing in the rain strapping down a sheet that has sprung its clips.🙄

    It was rather short-lived though. No more than a stiff breeze out now, but I did have visions of trundling wheelie bins for a while earlier.

    (shouldn't visions be a bit more inspiring?)

    3 and a half weeks of confinement apart from a couple of short drives out. Anyone who's long-term housebound has a really tough life.  It's crap beyond belief and I'm only getting a glimpse.

    Nice sunny start to the day with some photogenic cloudscapes, currently 4c with light winds.

    As for last night, well that was a lot stormier than forecast and downright horrendous until about 2am with a gust recorded nearby of 55mph.

    End result is that there is debris everywhere and I see the main road near us was closed earlier due to some trees blowing over.

    Nothing much to talk about; we got a maximum gust of 20mph at 00:16 in the back garden but I can't say I was aware of anything spectacular.

    Temperature 6.0deg.C up from 4.6deg.C at 04:01, humidity 84%, wind currently 2 to 5mph south-southwesterly, pressure 997.8hPa falling slowly, there's been 1.8mm of rain since midnight and 16.6mm in the last 24 hours,, cloud cover is 7/8 and breaking up in places sufficiently to allow some brightness through.

    Knitted socks would be good - all my fancy walking socks restrict blood flow to my ankles, useless things.  I could get into the knitting, especially the cursing bit.

    Cracking morning - bit breezy but sun blazing in the windows and keeping the cats warm!

    Trees eh. Not good close to houses. Do a @101_North and get it dealt with before it does some damage.

    I was sitting listening to the wind yesterday evening and thinking how good it was that it was away 😀

    I’m assuming we just had a squall line passing over us as that last shower was very intense rain and hail mixed in with gusty winds

    Damp and breezy today. Not ideal weather for a walk but I'm going anyway.

    Maximum temperature at midnight was 7.7deg.C, which went down to 3.8deg.C at 06:54 and now back up to 5.8deg.C, humidity is 84%, wind 4 to 8mph southerly with a maximum gust of 20mph at 00:38, pressure is 986.2hPa rising like a rocket, dry at the moment but there's been 3.0mm of rain today and 10.2mm in the last 24 hours, (the bulk of the rain was probably horizontal and therefore not recorded,) and cloud cover is 8/8 but currently thin enough to allow a bit of brightness.

    Traffic sign on A96 seems to have a yellow warning for snow later today don"t know if its corect but Ben  Wyvis has fresh cap of snow and its currently 6c here. The cold wind is the most noticeable thing here really not helping my  lower back issues. Can"t wait to see the "other woman" as my family calls her to get it eased  at the end of April

    With meteociel not running due to the fire 😅 can’t look at the wrf nmm so radar is best and also the skew t charts

    Glasgow for 1pm FC8D3EC8-9354-4E6A-BC53-827BFE89EF0D.thumb.png.13193f8317766f8dcf8c2030ebb8365c.png nice and unstable air helping the showers to be quite intense, for today looks like Edinburgh is most unstable between now and 2 pm 10798454-F9A3-4429-9A6D-84FCF2FDEA51.thumb.png.c6c53fac7d3a91b6362bd3e4f3ff2b8f.png7AB73CCC-4D4E-4E64-AC70-4420FB7EFEFF.thumb.png.2b6e08545cb5e99d7f22945593c8df17.png tomorrow looks better for instability in Edinburgh   🌩

    Wild day here so far! 
    40mph gusts, couple of hail showers and torrential downpours. 

    Few rumbles of thunder/lightning down in Dumfries & Galloway spotted on the radar. 

    Good stuff later for the lucky folk who live above 250 meters. (Settling snowfall higher up)

    Wintry showers down to 150/200 meters - even outside the warning. 

    Got to love early Spring at times - proper mix of weather! 😃

    Rest of the month all looks very average on current output! Hopefully plenty of sunshine at least. 
    Had enough of 8C, grey/low cloud and drizzle recently.

    I am ready for a warm spell of weather! 20C for a week or two during April/May would be great followed by a hot and thundery Summer. 
    Skip Autumn and straight into a cold and snowy Winter 2021/22. 😁

    All the best to you all.

    Right, so, that was a mistake. I went for my walk on my own ("I'm not going out in that, you nutter!") and quickly discovered as I rose towards the top end of the village that, away from the shelter of the wood behind my house, it was a lot more windy than I thought, which in turn meant that the rain, then sleet, wet snow and ultimately hail hit me a lot harder than I had expected. My face feels as if it's been sand-blasted. Apparently that's also how it looks. Hey ho, here's hoping for better weather tomorrow.

    Same here though I left the house for my walk in sunshine and got home in sunshine. In between everything but the kitchen sink with hail hard enough to hurt the face in the gusty winds. I had actually looked out to the West and saw mostly clear skies before leaving and decided to not bother with a waterproof or warm jacket or a hat. Unfortunately the clouds were coming from the North!

    Now feeling Springlike again at 6C in strong sunshine.
