Thought I'd chime in here to try and explain why there is "snow" in May.
First off, if there is ANY snow, it'll be reserved for the higher ground, roughly above 600m. Visit Cairngorm
to view snowfall. If any falls to lower levels i.e. towns, it will be VERY short lived. Snow can fall when the air temp is between
5-10oC because of evaporative cooling. The reason we are still experiencing occasional sporadic bursts of snow is because of the cold polar maritime
air that we are under. The warmer air is being held over France and Spain at present. That will change though.
The hail is pretty easy to explain. With very cold upper air (around -30oC at 17,000ft) and the warmer air at ground level, you get steep lapse rates
and sheer, this creates Cumulonimbus clouds (thunderclouds), which in turn produce hail and the odd tornado. This is weather we usually get in April
What we are experiencing is "normal" in the grand scheme of things, the only abnormality really is the delay in the shifting of the weather pattern.
Trust me when i say this isn't caused by Nibiru, Plant X, 2012 or HARPP.
The wind of late has been predominantly a N or NW'ly, for the warmer weather to hit our shores we ideally need a S, SW, ESE wind.
