    What’s happening with the weather

    Surely by now it should be a bit warmer? Is there a reason it’s still been so cold?

    United we stand here....

    No idea, I'm no Wincey Willis or Sean Batty but I now understand why the environmentalists have stopped saying global warming and are instead taking about climate change.
    It's May and I've still got my Central heating on (barely).
    A photo came up on my timeline this week, 2 years ago I was at Easter Road wearing a short sleeve t-shirt with shades on!

    It really bothers me when people can't tell the difference between weather and climate.

    Or global warming and climate change for that matter.

    Changeable weather is perfectly normal for this time of year. As are cold conditions from polar air plunging south as they are just now.
    Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

    Unsure if that was aimed at me or you're simply quoting my post.
    I'm very much aware of the difference, but there are folk out there that mock the term global warming when on any singular day it would appear like it's anything but "warm".
    If discussing a marked shift in the meteorological patterns, then climate change is a good catch-all.
    Incidentally, I think one of the reasons it's been so cold lately is because April was so dry, the ground is holding on to the frost longer which any farmer or gardener will testify to.

    Not aimed at you at all SG! Simply quoting you!

    Woken to about an inch of snow here in rural Lanarkshire this morning!

    Yup. It’s freezing. This time last year we’d had a load of warm days.

    Forecast to come doesn’t look much better!

    Snowing heavily in Aberdeen just now.

    Cold, biting wind and general all round misery. Not snow.

    True, the wind usually blows the snow away 😉

    If it's above 500ft, you won't be able to see out the window to check.

    It's not just Scotland. I drove from Perth to Dudley on Monday under rain 100% of the time, and it wasn't light rain either.

    Meanwhile in Oz, my son said it was 23C with rain that was doing his grass good. 🤨

    Warmer next week.

    It's actually warm in the sun at ma bit.

    And the hailstones add a bit of an edge.

    Hailstones outside the Wetherspoons in Peebles earlier, the things we'll do for a pint!

    I'd rather sit outside a boozer paying £2.49 for a pint than £5 odds.

    I'm hoping to be inside Cold City Brewery in the grassmarket 3 weeks today. I accept the price for a superior pint.

    The thing I’ve noticed most about the change in our climate is the wind is now near constant. It seems rare now to get a still day.

    Out on a walk with the dog earlier and got caught in quite a hefty hail shower. With how crap the weather's been, can't say I've been too fussed about heading out to a beer garden since they've opened up. Will wait another couple of weeks until I can get a nice cold pint in a warm pub indoors as it doesn't look likely the weather's going to get much better in the near future.

    Weather doesn't bother us. I walked through the Grassmarket today and outdoor bars are mobbed.

    Relatively sunny in South Edinburgh - got out for a run which I wasn't expecting to be able to do given the forecast.
    Mon the Hibs.
