Snow has blanketed Scotland in one of the most startling turnarounds in temperature we've ever seen.
Just last week Scotland broke its record for the highest-ever March temperature, but yesterday and today the snow has returned.
Overnight snowfall left up to six inches of snow in higher areas of Scotland as temperatures fell to -5C. The cold weather is expected to move south.
The heavy late fall of snow gave Scotland's ski resorts a brief boost after they struggled through a disappointing winter. Colin Matthews, the operations manager at CairnGorm Mountain resort near Aviemore, told the BBC he was delighted: "It's very wintry, I'm glad to say. Very cold at the top of the mountains - minus six and drifting snow . . . It's very unusual not to have skiing in April so this is looking good."
Today, Cairngorm Mountain released a statement saying, "Conditions are continually being assessed and we will look at conditions tomorrow. Snowing and drifting at present."
Glencoe Mountain Resort released this statement: "Three or four inches of snow fell last night but not nearly enough to resume skiing."
