  1. Anyone got an up-date on the reported passing of the solar minimum earlier in the year? I ask because it seems that there is still a dearth of any awakening signs of magnetic storms and sunspots - all quiet on the Sol front?
  2. 15/15°C muggy, drizzling but a warm sun attempting to break through.
  3. Chick chicks in

  4. Interesting that temps were forecast to take quite a dive into the low teens only a couple of days ago for Weds - Sat and now they are mid to high. 21C here too...
  5. How's that tea going down M? I'm struggling to concentrate for lack of food. Grey and now dry in Leith.
  6. Yes, it's a dreich morning. Low low cloud driving up behind Pencuik - smirry rain. Doesn't smell like autumn though, just yet.
  7. Very pleasant afternoon at the Peeblesshire show. Bits of blue sky but mainly cloudy - warm. Bought a mug lol..
  8. Drizzle/smirry rain on. Saves me half an hour of watering!
  9. Fifth consecutive afternoon of heavy frontal rain. Nicely returning to green.

  10. Look at the two horizontal lightning traces - they're identical. One would have been sufficiently stunning N!
  11. Shame it's been photoshopped Norrance. Bet there was an original decent photo there.
  12. 9°C, windy and heavy rain. Lovely.

  13. Give it another 20 minutes!
  14. Pal's photo from central Edinburgh just now:
  15. Just come back in from 30 minutes up the hill behind the cottage... Huge thunderstorm with frequent lightning and a stunning curtain of rain rapidly moving north to my east. Wonderful show. Watch out Edinburgh.
  16. Grumpy grump. Sweaty sweat. Moany moan.

      33c like a boss

  17. Four of the six main stories on BBC news relate to extreme weather - UK, Greece, Laos and Japan.  Astonishing.

      Parts of Japan have had an extraordinary summer: floods, heatwave and now possibly going to be hit by a typhoon

      There likely to be a shortage of winter fodder this year watch prices go up 

  18. Yss, the cold front sliding SE has certainly pepped-up with reds on the radar. Will hold off with the infinite watering this evening

    I'm guessing hot
  20. Wet morning, sunny afternoon in Leith. First day to work in two weeks, and boy, the Pentlands aren't half brown. Nearly orange!
  21. Unforecast heavy drizzle. Has actually made the ground damp!
  22. Reading about adders and humans coming into contact with each other much more than usual. Peebleshire News reporting a house invasion!
  23. Heavy rain all around us today - South Lanarks, other parts of the western Borders got a pasting. Went to Biggar and the B Road flooded in parts. Ten minutes drizzle at home. Hosepipe oot! Leeks coming on...
