Ewww. I don't know about you, but I'm just about sick of seeing that white crap everywhere.
Come on spring!

On a scientific note...I don't know how unusual that is so I'll leave it to the experts.

Hi,

We have had snow here in april ( Im in the midlands uk ) before, so I wouldnt say its too unusual.

I would have thought you guys up in scotland see it more than we do down here?

Its FREEZIN though and pretty windy.......wrap up and keep warm.

Aye, I`m in midlothian, it stinks. It is so so so cold. Much colder than the first the lot of snow we had up here.


To Beuty hairy Beast, actually, snow has been pretty much non existent up here for many many a year.


I dont think though, that it is anything totally wierd, but it is worth pondering, so I can totally understand the op`s desire to post this thread, coz it is out the blue.

Tell you what though, if it persists of the weather gets even more freaky, I will be very curious as to what is going on.

I'm in Canada, and we have had spring weather for 2 weeks+.

I snowboard a lot, and this really sucks. WHERE IS MY SNOW!!!???

In Scotland...great.

Not a trace of snow here.

news.bbc.co.uk...

"A slow-down - dramatised in the movie The Day After Tomorrow - is projected by some models of climate change.
The research is published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters."


Maybe this is something to do with it...maybe not?

I fail to see why this is so crazy? It's the end of March. Over the years i've seen snow into the start of May on several occasions in Scotland.

Al Gore would say it's a blip in the hockey stick.
Then he would say the world is warming due to man made emissions.
You could be stuck in six foot drifts, still global warming.
I think the world may be on the verge of a new ice-age and the man made emissions are ionospheric heaters keeping the ice-age at bay.
Let that one sink in, hmmmmm.

Ok, I take your word on it.

We had so much snow here one year back in the late eightie's (When I was a kid) that we were able to jump from the highest point off the swings in our local park....It was brilliant!

Edit to add - This was in april by the way

Yeah, I remember when I was wee, you could count on heavy snow year in year out, then it just stopped being the norm, it hardly snowed. Bare in mind I`m talking only about my locale, Midlothian, I couldn`t vouch for other areas.

It may well just be because of some natural cycle like in that BBC link posted further up the page.

Goodness, that's was probably suppose to be our snow here. I'm here in the Twin Cities area (Minneapolis/St.Paul Minnesota) and we've had an unbelievably wonderful March. NO SNOW fell here all month so far, and none is expected tomorrow either. And, the weather has been unusually warm this month too.

I occasionally fill in for a truck driver for a couple weeks in March when he takes his vacation and last year we had sub-zero temps and snow up to my knees. I hate driving a big truck when it's like that. This March we've had no snow, little rain, and temps in the 60-70s Fahrenheit. Right now, at 4:20PM, it's cloudy and 72° F, and all my windows are wide open, and that's just unreal for March, even April. That's late May weather. I love global warming!
I hate snow and cold!

I know there has been snow in scotland before later than normal.

But look at other weather patterns, like the post above, no snow and hot weather, when they should be getting snow.

Its upside down

It will be a great summer, it often is when theres horrible weather in spring and its been four years now since the last good summer.

I wouldnt worry too much.

Im in Scotland as well and the power is struggling to stay on, had some small outages as well as lights constantly flickering etc.

Its a blizzard outside.

Actually, come to think of it, how will the snow plow driver get to work?


Worry, worry and worrying about worrying.

We got about 8 inches of snow here in Dallas, TX 9 days ago...

Here are a couple of pics:

Snow is unusual for this area, especially this much. However, it is an el nino year, so it was somewhat expected. I wouldn't worry OP, snow happens!

BTW, for those in the states here, the Weather Channel will be launching "The Disaster Channel" in April on Earth Day. Although I don't do teevee, it's about time someone created a channel for MY KIND of entertainment. If this is true (
) I may consider getting a teevee just to watch THAT!




"We anticipate no shortage of material for the new channel", said Ms. Hotmember. "On slow disaster days, we will be showing documentaries of previous major disasters. There are also a wide variety of weather-related mini-disasters that we will be covering, such as car pileups in bad weather and golfers being struck by lightning. Even on really slow disaster days in the United States, we can always count on other countries to provide their fair share of calamities".

it's been real nice here. Expecting 80's the rest of the week and the weekend. I probably shouldn't have told you that. Well. just ignore that.

It makes that Glenleven taste a bit smoother when there is a chill in the air.
