    Was a downpour in EK back of 6 tonight was driving and seen lightning to my south..

    Went to the Airshow today at East Fortune. Awful day with cancellations to practically all aircraft shows.. An Occluded Front with low stratus cloud, persistent rain, wind and even mist later in the day was no conditions to see anything and unsafe for most aircrafts flying low. We do get days like this in summer where frontal rain sits over whole country but it's been too often this year.. Horrible cold day for Central Belt the Ice Cream vans at Airshow were deserted yet "Fresh Donuts" seemed to be the busiest van.. Really struggling now to hold an outdoor event up here yet the 3rd consecutive awful summer..

    I seen a dark looking sky southwest to me earlier but thought nothing of it. There was a light shower this evening here. I drove round the corner and went from a wet road to major surface spray so missed out on a downpour yet street behind me didn't..
  4. June 1995

    West of Scotland had great summer in 1995 both June and August reached great heatwaves even first half of July was good with severe Thunderstorms on the Glasgow Fair Friday (it usually rains that day/weekend as a Tradition) . Any rainfall that summer appeared to be at nightime. 2003,2006 were the next best summers after that..

    I agree there.. Up here in Glasgow at somepoint each year you get the usual nonsense on the news or papers when you get an big anticyclone "it was hotter than Ibiza today or hotter than Rome". One or 2 days a year you hear this nonsense yet these places far better over a period of 4 months for sunny, heat and dry weather.. Then when Tropical Maritime air mass hits us the likes of Aberdeen basks in lovely warm sunshine in Spring and Autumn plus high temps but again newspapers brag about it like it's unusual but happens every year at somepoint and is characteristics of this air mass..

    Cracking afternoon/evening so it has been and nice heat too. Feels fresh now this evening before this Warm Front comes over us. Talk or Thundery Rain perhaps a Trough catching the Warm Front otherwise it will be the usual cloudy and drizzly affair..

    Horrible day that was. Heavy persistent rain all day was very heavy at teatime. That clears and you think it may be a nice evening but no torriental showers have followed now.

    Very loud Thunder on ITV from Epsom race course. So much so a horse jumped knocked its jockey off.. Lightning then instant Thunder it was.. Sounded like a firework.

    Thundery Showers earlier affected the Sky Box in Pub.. Usually the Cup Finals have been sunny days but Thunder heard today inside Hampden..

    Some heavy showers have came over Southern Uplands hitting the Central Belt now some bright colours on radar.

    As said a number of posts up Ash tree's now budding down here aswell but Mid to Late May is about normal here.. Plane Tree's are also quite late here in budding yet go anywhere in London there usually in full leaf by early April.. Compared to earlier this month I was sweating after cutting both lawns this morning. Go back 3 weeks ago during that high it was a cold Easterly unless you had shelter in the sun.. Saturday Thundery Showers just in time for the cup final. Most years it's usually been ok for the cup final.. I don't remember any complete wash outs on Cup Final day.

    Looks to be cloudy Wednesday under Tropical Maritime conditions then winds will change S/SE for Thursday with Tropical Continental air pushing up. Looks like 2 nice days but Saturday could be wet. Forecast for Ireland is Thundery Rain Friday evening this pushing eastwards..
  13. Scotland/Alba Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/17 onwards

    After the rain this evening the cloud cleared and its became completely clear. Just too late for any sunset. Looks like a Friday to be best day here. Seen a forecast for Saturday it says cloudy and apple weather says Rain. A cold front will be out West come weekend so if weak will bring cloud and not amount to much. See how the predictions go later in week.

    Torriental rain here but just walked into a pub..
  15. Scotland/Alba Regional Weather Discussion 23/04/17 onwards
