We all know it’s been a cold spring with extremes of dry and wet and today breaks yet another impressive cold record. This time, a national record.

So far this year, Scotland’s warmest temperature stands at a measly 19.5C recorded at Achnagart, Highland. As of May 21st, Scotland has surpassed the barrier for latest date to not reach 20C since 1983. I was 3 months old the last time this happened!

This spring has, to a degree had it’s links to 2012 due to it’s swing from dry late February to March followed by record wet April in 2012 and this year’s dry April to possibly wettest May but temperature wise, it’s nothing similar.

Tomorrow 9 years ago (May 25th, 2012), Scotland recorded a temperature of 30.9C at Inverailort, Highland, the highest ever recorded in Scotland during May. Tomorrow, we’ll see 18C at best. March 2012 also saw Scotland record it’s highest March temperature with 23.6C set at Aboyne, Aberdeenshire.
