  1. 21:30 last night 16.5C - muggy as hell and easily the worst midges I've experienced here at the cottage in the three years since moving.
  2. A proper negative temperature anomaly for July. You don't get many months like that these days! Thanks for posting Mr Frost.
  3. 23.5C at 11.00am. From the ridiculous to the sublime. Mind you I'm keeping doors and windows around the house shut to keep the cold in!
  4. Interesting to consider I've had seventeen days at 20°C+ this year. The last one was exactly one month ago on 26 June. Appalled by July 2020. Here's a pretty mushroom from the woods to cheer us up:
  5. My cockerel has discovered the cat flap. Lordy.

      There is a rude joke in there somewhere

      Is the chicken welcome? 

  6. First opportunity to view the comet around 1am this morning in these parts. Clear skies, binoculars, guide to location using 'the plough/big dipper' and there it was. Am absolutely delighted. Something special about comets.....
  7. What a lovely day. 18.8°C sunny periods. BBQ a success. Knackered and caught the sunshine
  8. I'm planning a bbq with a shoulder of pork to cook for four hours over coals on Sunday @mardatha so it WILL be 19°C and lovely. I have decided.
  9. First decent day for a while here. Up to 18.0C mid afternoon with sunny spells - washing got nicely dry. Then poured down and13.0C behind the rain - humidity gone. Not bad at all.
  10. Whilst the western Border's weather can be described in one word - Meh - here's a photo of Guinevere, Gertrude and Genevieve our one week old Guinea Fowl. They'll go outside to live in the big hawthorn tree in about six weeks.
  11. What's going on with the radar over Ireland? Dodgy data no doubt.

  12. Torrential downpours here too - was so wet walking the doggy.
  13. You could start the Lammermuir Hills Storm Chasing Club. Stunning shots. Everything passed through here now, left with a muggy 19.5C - bright high well structured cloud.
  14. Seems that the prospect of anything else electrical has rapidly diminished. Shame. Just for the record was up to 27.7C yesterday. Currently 20.4C, full cloud, dry and bright.
  15. 26.9C in my garden. Far too hot. Staying indoors. Bah humbug. Grumble.
  16. Got up to 24.4C here today - May 29th still holding the record. I think we are all thinking it's going to be warmer again tomorrow. Fifteenth day of 20C+ in Costa Del Tweeddale.
  17. Beautiful day. Cloudy start then it slowly thinned out to be clear blue skies and up to 18.3°C in the garden. Walked up Weird Law with lots of forestry at the top, then looking south west in front of one of the wind farms high above the M74 in the next valley up Beattock: Looking back east on the way back down. A701 and Tweed in the valley, looking up and over the burn which leads up to Fruid Water.
  18. In contrast to south of the border, today is easily the best day of the week so far here - bright sunshine, refreshing breeze and 17.2C. Lovely.
  19. @Mr Frost activity is around 30 miles south and west of me. Saw towering cloud tops visible over the other side of the local hills. Just sunny n humid here at 21.4°C. Yesterday the same after midday with a high of 21.1°C. Twelfth and thirteenth days this season of 20C+.
  20. It's 83 miles from here to the east coast at Bamburgh, Northumberland, which is the direction from which my weather has been coming today: At 250m here I suppose we recapture that haar experience. And these came out today for the first time since March:
  21. Unexpected rain in the Borders area (in the supermarket self checkout voice).

      Remove this rain before continuing.

      Maybe a good idea if you were outside

  22. Bright, breezy and 13.0C. Not a bad afternoon for a brisk one.
