After a warm spell in March when temperatures were reaching the low 20s across Scotland there really hasn't been much else to talk about.
Since the warm weather in March it's been on the cool side with plenty or rain or showers. April was the second wettest on record, with only 1934 wetter.
There's usually hope that April and May will bring some fine warm spells, but there's been a real lack of that this year and it doesn't look like there's any real swelters on the way in the foreseeable future.
A strong jet stream is crossing the Atlantic reaching speeds just to the west of the UK of over 100 mph. This is driving low pressure systems towards us bringing rain and at times stronger winds. We still have snow falling on the hills and the CairnGorm ski centre is enjoying some late skiing conditions, which could last into June.
So where have the warmer spells gone? To be honest it looks like Spain is hogging the heat at the moment. A friend who forecasts in Spain has just sent a photo of an amazing sunset saying it's the end of another day of a heatwave over southern Spain. Temperatures have been pushing into the mid 30s in parts of southern Spain during the last week. Rota, Cadiz smashed its all time May record of 35.4C set in 2010 by hitting 39C today. Jerez equalled its 1953 record of 38.0C. The Canaries are also experiencing a heatwave with temperatures reaching 40C on some of the islands.
As the oven of Europe (Spain) warms up then we wait in hope for the jet to shift north of us in June and allow some of that heat to drift our way. Get the BBQ poised, but keep the raincoat handy!
