'Go home snow, you're drunk': Glaswegians react to April weather

'Go home snow, you're drunk': Glaswegians react to April weather

From balmy summer temperatures one day to snow and hail the next, Glasgow's weather has been unpredictable to say the least.

With everyone in full 'taps aff' mode last week, it's no wonder the sudden bursts of snow on Monday and Tuesday have left many bewildered.

Dubbed as 'Polar Plume', a spread of hail, sleet and snow hit the city yesterday prompting Glaswegians to express their bemusement on social media.

STV weather presenter Sean Batty explained: "I always look at March and April as being transitional months, where the weather can still be fairly volatile.

"We often see huge swings in temperature at this time of year. The average maximum temperature at this time of year is around 11-12C, although as we’ve seen recently, it can be several degrees on either side of this."

He added: "During spring the cold Arctic air is never too far to our north, and the heat starts to build across southern Europe, so slight changes in wind direction at this time of year can give us the big changes in weather from week to week."

So, take a look at what Glasgow thought of the 'Polar Plume':

Some made the comparison with pictures:

Others go for the plain and simple:

We have to agree with you...

Should we be celebrating?

Some people just can't decide what to wear:

Others just can't believe their eyes:

Even The Tron is getting a bit confused:

When will this madness end?

Sean says we can expect these volatile changes in the weather for a wee while yet, with high temperatures unlikely to return any time soon.

He said: "The air will warm slightly at the end of this week with temperatures of 9-13C by day, although still chilly at night with a frost risk.

"It looks as if it’ll be a bit of a wait until temperatures get back into the 20s again."
