    looking at the April stats

    Scotland mean temp 4.6C 12th coldest tied with 1973&1929 , 6th driest also frostiest April on record

    East Scotland mean temp 4.4C 10th coldest tied with 1989&1918, 4th driest 

    @Mr Frost might be a chance for you tomorrow, think the heaviest of the convective line will be across southern Scotland extending down through the Pennines and possibly southern parts of England probably hail along it with the cold air rushing in animucw0.thumb.gif.6bddd25d1633540696cf8b28ce53e449.gif animdil4.thumb.gif.c486dd490c9cd61e1320632c066d0066.gif

    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.

    Another stunning beautiful spring day here in Ellon.

    Rain started about 5.00pm and temperature has fallen from 6c to 3.5c currently .See a bit of snow and sleet on radar just inland from here.  Just before dusk the Glencoe webcams were showing heavy snow. Good decision to keep on taking cows in at night.

    Temperature has dropped to 3.1deg.C, pressure has dropped to 990.1hPa steady, rainfall has increased to 15.1mm today and the wind has swung round to the north. Oh the excitement...

    I do like a bit of snow and cold weather, but there is a time and a place and it definitely ain't in May...

    This says it all, snow in May.

    And for once the weather station is right (up to a point) as in the heavier pulses of rain just now there is the hint of sleet.

    Until 6pm it was dry here, if a day of classic grey Aberdeenshire Permagloom™.

    Thereafter, constant heavy rain.

    Managed to get up to heady heights of 9c as a high today, the wind was light to moderate until picking up this evening, now strong and gusty from the East/Northeast.

    Absolutely lashing it down with cold rain, one of those days when the cats make a quick foray to defecate then straight back in to squat by the hearth. They settled down to read the papers and I was astonished to overhear their conversation. All politics. ****** ****** *** ***** *** ********** ******* ** ***.  There you go.

    Found mouse droppings under my desk earlier. Cats just too engrossed in grown-up debate to bother with their duties.

    Yesterday was brutal. Thoroughly depressing stuff, rain has stopped for now but the cold temperatures remain. Average maximum temperature for Glasgow is 15c I believe, yesterday I think we managed 6c and the forecast for the next 10 days doesn’t even get us close. Can see records tumbling this month unless we get a real heatwave in the last week.

    It was damp on the ground earlier on but is drying up nicely now. Doesn't look like more rain in the short term but we'll see.

    Temperature minimum for today was 3.2deg.C at midnight and now up to 7.6deg.C, humidity is 75%, wind 1 to 4mph northwesterly, pressure 1002.2hPa going up like a rocket, there's been 20.8mm of rain in the last 24 hours of which 4.2mm today and although cloud cover is 7/8 it's still reasonably bright.

    Overnight low of 2.1c, heavy rain for most of it as well going by the amount of water in the bucket that was left out.

    Surprised that stayed where it did as the wind is strong and gusty from the NE backing N.

    Definitely feels like a November (!) day out there with the windchill and a current temperature of just 4.2c.

    On different note, the talk of Siberia the other day saw a few idle minutes spent looking at this video, this, and the channel in general, give a real insight into what Siberian cold is really like.  That squeaking noise when walking in the snow! - Siberian Life Link

    Heavy hail showers and 3c to start the day brighter now but a fresh to strong NNE wind at 6c is making it feel very cold. Going to keep cows going in at night and out t in the morning till at least the weekend but if it  looks like drying up a bit at the weekend and staying dry (Cold or Warm) will put them out   full time then.

    Hail showers rattling against north-east facing windows today, school children scurrying around madly in the street (no coats of course). Cats hiding but I expect they'll appear when I get the stove going. Soon.

    The property we are looking at is inbetween Newmacher and Inverurie and is approximately 130m asl.. that ought to be good enough for snaw.

    My cousin lived in Kemnay and worked in Inverurie for a long time and had some cracking snowfalls over the years, mainly from Northerlies.

    Here the sun has come out this afternoon and it feels quite pleasant after a mostly cloudy and showery morning. A cool NE wind though at 9C from an overnight low of 3.9C.

    I'd love to watch CCTV of cows of an evening. Better than watching the tv screensaver when the guinea fowl roost on the satellite dish and block the signal come 8.30pm...

    Snow line intact at 350m. Remarkable for May - unusual definitely?
