> Though shrinking under warm March sunshien by day, these drifts remain deep!

This grass was once buried under several feet of snow drifts!
These two images I took yesterday afternoon up the Campsie Fells… March 12!

After, night after night of clear skies and frost formation, tonight should remain cloudy if not windy enough to prevent frost from forming across pretty much all of the UK. I’m sure somewhere will have light enough wind and clear enough skies to fall below freezing but overall this is the first night is quite a while where there doesn’t appear to be anywhere that will fall below freezing…

A warmer weather regime appears in the offing with yesterday and today bringing periods of rain showers which have accompanied a cool but at times stiff northwest wind which has made for a much more maritime appearance. Nights should remain mild along with days which look to be ready to push above normal with some spots reaching between 10-15C over the next few days…

Interestingly, ice remains on some lochs and reservoirs as well as plenty of snow which is measuring as much as 5-9 inches on top of the Campie Fells (at road level) and this is not in drifts. The snow is becoming patchier but there is plenty left up there and across many higher elevated areas of Scotland, England and Wales which won’t dissappear anytime in the immediate future. We’re now pushing 3 months solid some snowcover in many areas, amazing!!

Thanks for reading.
