What season is it?

One of the joys of living on the next continent north of the Antarctic is that the weather is more than a little changeable.

Last Monday the temperature was 36 c (thats about 97 in the old money!) - today, we have had hail, single figure temperatures and snow on the mountains.

This is the kind of sky that produces such weather:



You can find more skies at SkyWatch Friday.

Wow that is some serious swings of temperature! We had warm weather yesterday and an ice-snow warning for tomorrow. Fun times!

Beautiful picture, Stewart.
The weather in the world is really upset.
We have a storm today.
The second major storm in a short time.

Greetings Irma

Same type of radical temperature changes have been going on here in the upper half too yet not offering any great sky shots though.

Now that we spend the winter in Florida, it really is sometimes hard to remember what season it is. It's warmer here in the winter than it is in Oregon on many summer days.

You are having some very changeable weather ....but spring is like that is it not?

Our photos said...

Beautiful photo,Stewart!

ladyfi said...

That is some dramatic change in temperature! Pretty cloud shot.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Stewart Sounds like the same weather as N.Ireland. All 4 seasons in 1 day although we NEVER get it so warm!!

Lea said...

There is one thing sure about our weather here, too - Whatever it is, it is going to change! Very pleasant temperatures here earlier in the week - now a blast of cold air with rain and possible ice and snow.
Hope you have a wonderful week-end!
