After cold at times windy and a lot of rain we have had some nicer weather the last couple of days reaching for a short time around 15 deg and some sunshine to get the kids out for a vit D top up, garden starting to green up and plants waking up, first seeds in and now a lot of catch up work outside as the ground starts to drain 😅

8˚C at 7.30, a bit cloudy but feeling mild with a gentle SW’ly wind, brightening up by end of morning and reaching a max temp of 17˚, which is quite remarkable after the weekend’s cold snowy spell. Sunny afternoon and clear warmish evening with 11˚ at 10pm.

4˚C at 7.30, bright and sunny day in spite of the clouds, light SW’ly wind and much warmer than yesterday with a top temp of 15˚, almost too hot sowing our trees in the tunnel, no complaints. 8˚ at 9pm.

Proof of the AGW lobby refusing to debate the issue has emerged after it was revealed that the BBC news in Scotland dropped apiece dropped a piece on the kids climate strike as they had invited a '' climate denier'' in to debate the issue and nobody from the AGW side would engage in the debate so the item was dropped. If you believe yourselves to be right with all that evidence to back up your theory why would you refuse to debate... presumably because you know your argument to be false.

More alarmism. The head of the Enviroment Agency is today warning of an "existential threat" to England in 25 years due to a lack of water caused in part by climate change. So we can now safely look forward to 25 years of heavy rain.... thanks.

0˚C overnight, 1˚ at 7.30 cloudy but bright and turning into a very sunny morning, not much wind to begin with and a max temp of 12˚, though by afternoon we had a very cold SW’ly wind for a while before it warmed up a little again, 2˚ at 9pm under a clear moonlit sky. == Bill S, interesting that the Cairn o’ Mount was open, Hill of Fare had 8” of snow on Sunday according to a hill walking friend. Wet stuff of course, easily melting in the sun.

A frosty sunny start to Monday in Aberdeen, drove home sun giving way tocloud by Perth and eventually drizzle in borders to heavy rain in Lancashire just about letting up in NeWales such is the variety of the Uk weather.

ISTVAN: 1979 ranks as one of the coldest winters in the UK during the 20th century, so it's not too surprising that today is warmer.

There is nothing unusual about our weather this March in the UK. In like a lion, out like a lamb! Snow, rain, storms gales and floods during first half of March, followed by sunshine and Spring weather during the second half.

2˚C at 7.30, crunchy frozen snow underfoot, cloudy but turning into a bright day much of the time with squally showers (of rain) in the afternoon, strong NW’ly wind, max temp 8˚, clearer and calmer evening, 2˚ again at 10pm under a bright moon. ==March snow: I remember three springs in succession in the late 70s/early 80s when it snowed on the 21st of March!

Ron My mothers funarel was on 15th, March 1979. There was a foot of snow .it was a very cold month. I lived in Bedford in the home counties. A bit different from today.

Irony,irony I wonder if they will get the irony. On Friday lots of school kids went on ''climate strike'' and those in Scotland would have got up the following day to find much of the country covered in what they presumably believe to be ''a thing of the past' . The bewilderment they must have felt........oh how I laughed!!!

It's just past the 13th anniversary of my mother's funeral. I remember the heavy snow in Glasgow that night and the disruption in other parts of Scotland and here we are in another snowy March.

March 2019 is certainly becoming one of the wettest months of March for well over a decade. Rainfall has been recorded on every day so far locally. Due to the jet stream's position directly over the UK it has led to some extraordinary contrasts in temperature, very mild in the south to very cold and snowy in the North. The constant gale force winds have been another feature of this highly unsettled month so far. Such a difference from a much quieter February.

Woke up around 0700 hrs to find heavy wet snow falling here at 140 metres, but not settling. Snowline about another 100 metres higher up. The standard forecast was accurate this time.

Further to what you say Ron about snow amounts being bog standard, what a turnaround from last month with Glencoe Ski Centre reporting ''ski anywhere on the hill conditions'' with more snow forecast.
On 14 Mar 2019, Ron Greer wrote:

on the journey to and from Aviermore yesterday hill snow cover was 'bog standard' for this time of year, with substantial amounts above 500 metres. The deaths of Swiss and French climbers on Ben Nevis a few days ago in an avalanche is a tragic reminder that normal is not always benign.
