    Amber warning for the Central belt wind tunnel for tomorrow now.

    Model output discussion - summer rolls on

    Highest tops in Scotland can have snow at any time of the year. I think the image above is likely suggesting snow in the Cairngorms, which would be in keeping with that.

    Hurricane Florence

    And then there was hurricane bawbag! Never forget!

    A proper Glasgow autumn evening. Lashing rain, dark one hour earlier than it should be and heating on already.

    And yet you've been banished? Sounds like a gross miscarriage of justice Free the Fettercairn one! Looking surprisingly Autumnal next week in terms of temperatures. Usually we get some warmth into September, maybe it'll make a reappearance.

    It’s been relentlessly overcast in Glasgow for I can’t remember how long now. Getting ridiculous how little we’ve seen direct sunlight over the past few weeks.

    We'll be getting into what I call the Dog Days soon. Traditionally the dog days of summer are when the dog star, or Sirius, is visible in the sky, and coincided with the hottest, most sultry days of the summer. I believe farmers may refer to it a lot, I'm not sure. However, my idea of the dog days are those late days of summer, where you began to sense the season was on the wane. The last of the heat was still in the sun, and you can still get some nice weather, but the novelty of glorious sunny days has begun to wear off (as if it ever could in Scotland!), the school holidays have ended - meaning delight for some, but I associated it with the foreboding of my youth of having to return to class. It's like nature is saying the fun is over soon, and you feel like you're just waiting for autumn to make it's first appearance. Obviously a bit early for autumn talk, and there should hopefully be a good month or so of mainly decent enough weather to go, but just thought I'd make a post about what this time of year means to be and the associations that it brings in my head. In some ways I find it quite pleasant, giving the chance to make the most of the remaining light nights, and in better summers such as this, you hope that they will never end.

    Incredible drop in temperature from last night even. So many people out and about without jackets been caught out.

    Keep hearing very distant thunder as well. Really spooky actually! Going by the radar Paisley/Renfrew/Clydebank must be getting soaked. right now.

    Been a few distant flashes of lightning here, looking SW. Was some pretty heavy rain also for the best part of an hour. Edit: Looking on the radar it looks to be going SE>NW which means the city is missing most of it, but Ayrshire, Inverclyde, Argyll are taking a battering.

    Never known heat like that in Glasgow today - have experienced it elsewhere so to be walking through my own city with such a hot sun beating down was a new one. Was still over 30c until about 8pm, even now it's high 20s celsius. Back to a more sensible 26c tomorrow and the next few days, which is still very warm for here.

    If anyone has an iPhone, the weather app (which I think takes its predictions from the weather channel) is now predicting 29c tomorrow, and 32c on Thursday, for Glasgow. If Thursday's prediction was to come to fruition, I believe that would be a record.

    Okay, if the airport reached 30 in 1995 then it won't be a first in my lifetime! Still doesn't happen often as you say, so it really is a stand out forecast. Think 30c is now being predicted on Thurs although that will likely change.

    I see possible 29c for Glasgow this week. If we reach 30c I think that might be a first in my lifetime.
