    Windchill of -8 this morning with a low of -3.2 with heavy snow falling, proper powder snow too.

    Well this winter hasn't been one with a lack of snowy pictures,but I suppose it's obligatory to post them even in April.

  • Location: Isle of Skye, 14m/49ft above sea level

    Good morning from a lovely sunny Skye! Well, after me saying that it was unlikely that we'd have a power cut last week, we did! Around about 9pm. I couldn't be bothered faffing around lighting my now clean lamps, so I found myself a torch and a wee battery operated lantern and went to bed with a good book! I was asleep pretty quickly ( so the book couldn't have been that good! ) and the power was off for maybe an hour, or so I was told. Quite lucky in that many parts of the Island were still without power at 3pm the next day. Since then we've had rain, hail, sleet, mist, drizzle and snow on the mountain tops. Weather was pretty cruddy over the weekend but I did manage to get into the veg patch and prep the raised beds with plenty of compost. Yesterday I was cutting down the ever present brambles and laying cardboard down on veg garden paths. I did, off course, completely overdo it and was more than a wee bit achy last night. Today I will pace myself and have plenty of wee rests and fill up on tea and biccies. 'Tis the only sensible choice! Current temp 7.4c and blue skies. Love it!

    A beautiful morning here. Brilliant sunshine and birds chirping. First proper glimpse of spring I reckon.

    Snow has melted on the Campsies, great view to the West Highlands reveals a lot of snow still on the mountains. Interesting to see how long that might last.

    Sorry to hear about Ciel, but if I have to go I'd rather it be sudden, just not quite yet please.

    Bright and sunny here after overnight rain, but very windy. Had to head in to school to pick up a Covid test kit and I'm in on Thursday for the first time since before Xmas. That's going to feel very strange. Wind didn't seem too bad on the way there but the car was really being buffeted at times on the way back. Of course I took the excuse of being out to do some other errands so not only has the dog got enough food to last her for 2-3 months, but my garage is now empty of cardboard that has been accumulating since the start of lockdown due in part to all the home deliveries.

    Lovely day in Banchory, was out chatting to a neighbour while handing over a parcel to her and the sun felt warm kn my back. Nothing to do today except wait for the RAC to turn up to get my car going again, or at very least, get it towed to the garage...seems not having driven it much in the last 12 weeks hadn’t been good for it. On the upside, I’ve now been fully discharged from the hospital and given the green light to get behind the wheel once more.

    Currently 12.9c and climbing after an overnight low of 5.3c. Once car is fixed, I’ll take dogs for a decent walk and make the most of it.

    Cracker of a day, warm affects of the Solway in evidence here at 15c and sunny.

    A few suntraps in the yard and feeling very pleasant in a t-shirt out of any breeze

    The thread was getting a bit long and a bit slow, so I've split out the last few days into a fresh one 🙂

    Fair here today with hazy sunshine and a Westerly breeze. At 13.6C the max was the highest of the year so far.

    Absolutely cracking day here today. Sunny from beginning to end, temperature got up to 13.2deg.C at 12:33, the pressure continues to rise and is currently at 1038.3hPa, whatever cloud there was never exceeded 3/8 cover and that was very high and thin, and only 1.0mm of rain fell overnight.

    Was like that here an hour ago Nut. Totally grey anti cyclonic gloom. Then suddenly from nowhere it's wall to wall blue skies! 8.7C and shooting up.

    Bit different to this evening, three years ago:

    Has burned away now thankfully. Looks like a pretty useable day again.

    Not sure if anyone here has family / friends in Mississipi or Alabama? I would make sure they are prepared for what is shaping up to be a very significant event

    Yesterday was a cracker, so is today. I managed an outdoor snooze just then, first of many if my physio is right.  Every cloud has a silver lining eh!?

    Bit cloudy to start with but cleared up in the early afternoon to oodles of hazy sunshine. 

    Winds lot lighter than yesterday, with temperature responding in kind up to a new record for here for this year of 13.1c.

    More of the same please!

    Hi folks, stunning day in Glasgow, two in a row. even managed to sneak my tomato seedlings outside for an hour for some early sun!

    With SEPA and Meteociel now done, is there anyway of tacking sunshine hours, max/min temps, rainfall in the Glasgow area? Presumably the station that Meteociel used still reports somewhere?

    Yes, cracking here also and the temperature got above 15deg.C so the lounger had to go out and sunbathing season is underway. (15.2deg.C at 15:19.)

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
