    On the travel news I heard the words ” snow gates closed”.
    It will start getting dark in a month Ffs.

    Sunny here today, was sunny yesterday too on my night ride in Grizedale, and we had a glorious sunny ride on Sunday. Sun, sunny sun sun.

    Yes it’s not particularly warm but the weather has been ok recently IMO.

    I was riding up on Bennachie last night (a pimple by Scottish mountain standards) and it was bloody snowing.

    Mind you, anybody who thinks that an increase in the average temperature of the planet has to mean that it is hotter everywhere all the time should really think a bit more, but that’s a conversation for another day and another board I guess.

    Hmm… Is it possible to get loads of big massive boats and tugs, connect some huge chains to them and attatch to some massive ground anchors then haul this whole county down nearer the equator ?

    Got to be some better weather going on down there..

    Maybe we should sign a petition and send it to somebody important… God, Mother Nature, Easter bunny, tooth fairy, the gruffalo?

    Last year at this time it was 25 degrees, clear blue skies and not a breath of wind.

    Well here, 1 year ago, it had been raining solidly for about 6 weeks, and it was only just getting started.

    Aye it was bloody freezing on the commute this morning, my hands were numb coming over the moor. There is no way I’m wearing full finger gloves on the road bike near the end of May.

    West of Scotland 1981miked?

    Ah obviously not after reading your latest post as its been warm and sunny this week up until todays return of winter. Still blowing a bloody gale though.

    I was in southern Spain earlier in the week. Flipping freezing. They were wearing 2 jumpers, anoraks and wooly hats at the windsurf centre in Tarifa where we were sailing. And it snowed in Madrid last Friday.

    Mind you, the wind was good.

    The wind’s just been throwing hailstones at us here (Wakefield).

    Not sure who distributes the weather in this country.. Michael Fish maybe?

    Anyway… Just so you know it’s May for gods sake..

    Anytime you want to raise the temperature above 12 degrees, stop this incessant strong wind that has blown for about 3 weeks now and enough of the hale stones and monsoon type rain.

    Last year at this time it was 25 degrees, clear blue skies and not a breath of wind. It feels like we are still in winter, which in turn makes it feel like it has been winter for about 9 months.

    PLEASE can we have a summer that lasts more than 3 minutes this year… I’m bored of this crap weather!

    Global warming you say?????

    Aye.. Gone one!

    Ps.. They call it “climate change” now because they realised they can’t fool us with the “global warming” whopper when it is struggling to make mid teens in the temperature stakes in the Summer.

    And breath..

    There’s nothing new about snow in the Cairngorms in May, it’ll probably snow next month too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m in Dundee Gary,

    Where in Cairngorms are they taken? We should be enjoying mid to late teens just now not shivering our arses off, it’s not even 10 degrees here in Dundee. Off on holiday this week, had some cycling planned but damned if I’m going out in gusts of 30-40mph and battling against it all day.

    Sod’s law dictates that if you head into the wind to start with so you have an easier cycle home it will change direction just in time for you to do the return leg.

    Tony Blair could be worth a try… He must be good for something!

    Oklahoma weather anyone?

    Well, occasional massive and frequent smaller tornadoes aside, the climate looks pretty good in Oklahoma TBH. So yes please, but I’ll build my house out of bricks and have a storm cellar thank you very much! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    the north pole melted last summer, umpteen trillion tonnes of ice-cold water poured into the northern oceans.

    i reckon it’ll be a cold and crap summer.

    You’ll need to tell the sun. Solar cycle 24 just never lit up properly.

    Have you seen what countries lie at the same point as us?
    the polar caps melting and the shift of the Gulf stream may lead to us having colder weather and worse winters despite the temperature increasing

    PS Its a global average not your weather that climate change refers to

    I think it has been OK weather but not warm but sunny
    I would take this over the wet crap we had last year

    I honestly don’t know what you’re all moaning about – the hailstorm has passed here and it’s sunny again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Down in the sunny southwest I was a bit shocked to see a shower as I went out to the car to get some grub. It’s been mostly dry for the past couple of months now, dusty fast trails and a load of fun!

    It’s grim up north, when we separate, you can keep the shite weather!

    It’s really not – I dunno where all this people live who are moaning about the weather but I’m in NW England and I reckon it’s been pretty decent for at least the last month – sunny most days, few showers here and there.

    But yeah in general you have much more sunshine down south. But looking at this map the places with the least sunshine are also the only places with proper hills/mountains – swings and roundabouts eh?

    And for comparison the average mean temp for May.

    We only remember the hot years.
