  1. 24 hours ago the forecast today on the telly was for a quiet but moist if not perfectly dry day. Woke up to pouring rain all morning. This morning's telly forecast said rain clearing from south of Scotland and fizzling out. Dry at lunchtime and now pouring again. Our beloved BBC forecasts aren't doing too well. That six hour forecast window is a tricky one to nail!
  2. The forest is busy! That bottom big boy is the size of a dinner plate.
  3. 17.4°C and sunny intervals. A pleasant afternoon. And look at the berries! Shhh don't say anything about predicting winter....
  4. Proper thick dew this morning - warm at 12C but dripping... Autumn is coming!

  5. Just popped into the thread to see where we are at - so thought I would leave this here. An interesting year against the trend: Arctic Sea Ice News and Analysis | Sea ice data updated daily with one-day lag NSIDC.ORG
  6. 20.0C on the nose here this afternoon - first time for a few weeks. A few sharp showers around, but managed to experience only light rain on the walk, and then only for fifteen mins.
  7. It's the massive liquorice allsorts laying machine. There's one on the Lanark Road A73 that lays huge pink marshmallows. Heavy rain earlier. Cool 15.3C. HA! Love it.
  8. Do you have a pulley @mardatha?? They're a godsend.... Peebles yesterday. Got soaked and stood under the bridge sheltering for a good 20mins....
  9. Made me giggle thinking that the earth moved in Penicuik. I took a journey into off-topic land down the M74*/M6 today to see a caravan and therefore missed the overhead development of substantial heavy showers in the BIggar/Coulter/west Tweeddale area - all marched north east and have bothered east Edinburgh and East Lothian this evening.... Back now though and in the garden where the rain has barely touched the ground and the washing I foolishly left outside is thankfully dry to touch. *Was boiling hot in Lockerbie in the sun...
  10. What a week for warmth: Weds 27.4C Thurs 26.4C Fri 26.0C Sat 24.9C Luckily for the long afternoon dog walk on Weds the ten minutes walking through Neidpath tunnel at 13C was absolute bliss: Then the rest of the week my MO has been to retire to woodland shade: But apparently according to the telly the 'heatwave' was over days ago. So maybe unsurprising it's 21.1C and blistering sunshine already at 13:00 today....
  11. Hottest day of the year so far at 25.4C yesterday, I wonder if the heat builds as forecast over the next 48 hours, how high that will go...? As @Puffy MacCloudsays, though, unnecessarily hot. Whoever invented car air conditioning gets my blessed thanks.
  12. Warmest day of the year in my backyard 24.9C. Thankfully there is a pleasantly lively breeze.
  13. Reached 20.4C yesterday and felt like 30C. So humid. No rain though - but rainy skies moved over us and it fell anywhere around us - seem to be in a wee bubble!
