  1. Interestingly this forecast is for the US to be average to warmer than average which is a good sign for us: Winter Outlook: Warmer than average for many, wetter in the North | National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration WWW.NOAA.GOV Drought improvement expected in the Southeast
  2. I saw the forecast on Facebook and then posted it in here so just coincidence
  3. Time for a ramp, let's hope this is right: *Winter 2019/2020* Statistical winter outlook – Solar cycle and ENSO! – Severe Weather Europe WWW.SEVERE-WEATHER.EU Two weeks ago, we wrote about the latest long range model forecasts, and what they show for the upcoming winter 2019/2020. While we wait... In the meantime we were at North Berwick Law today. Hi @Kirkcaldy Weather you're over there somewhere:
  4. Usual sunny nonsense with a hint of frost here:
  5. Welcome back blue skies: A very impressive change after a dank morning. Let's see what the 12zs churn out...
  6. It's damp in the air here but saturated underfoot: I am so bored with this weather. This morning's 00z ECM would at least be a bit more interesting. With a couple of tweaks this could be a big upland snowstorm or at least a rain & windstorm:
  7. Interestingly my diislike of October isn't necessarily all in my head. It's the wettest month on average across the west & east of Scotland and the 2nd wettest month in the north: UK climate averages WWW.METOFFICE.GOV.UK UK climate averages Springs are dry and autumns are wet with summer and winter in between.
  8. One last photo for today, I never manage to capture rainbows very well but this one this afternoon was quite cute. If you squint a lot there's a 2nd very faint rainbow on the right:
  9. One GFS run at +360hrs, it's got to be nailded on, surely? Meanwhile we have our continental skies back, gorgeous day but that wind has a nibble to it:
  10. Ladies and gentleladdies, may the snow chase season commence: Looks awfy dry to me
  11. Rain rain and more rain for many parts of Scotland, some of us should stay fairly dry though:
  12. As promised, the grass has been cut but it was a bit soggy underneath:
  13. It's the same in the opposite corner of the country but not quite as unusual for us: I thought Fergus might have felt left out the other day and he does stand still if a tennis ball is involved. He's remarkably dry for a morning walk too:
  14. We used to be with Sky/BT and the line speed was way less than 1M. We had to plan 2 days in advance if we wanted to download a film. We are now with a company called Briskona who use a line of sight wifi thingy which sounds a bit dodgy but it delivers 10M. I don't think Briskona operate in your area but there is a good chance another company does. It might be worth researching it before you move as BT saying 1 to 3M will probs mean a real speed of 0.5M or less.
  15. Today's afternoon dog walk: It was cold in the breeze and these photos were taken at about the best slot of the whole day. We've escaped most of the shower activity down here so I should be able to cut my grass tomorrow.
  16. October is one of the worst weather months. Too soon for a snow chase and too late for warmth. I have a deep dislike for October weather.
  17. The data from SEPA is much more detailed than anything you'll get from the Met-Office Scottish Rainfall Data - provided by Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) APPS.SEPA.ORG.UK Rainfall data for Scotland.
  18. Cool, breezy, sodden underfoot but currently dry with a hint of sunshine. Perfect conditions for some lazy silhouette photography:
  19. There will be some fairly chunky gusts across some parts of the north tomorrow, nothing too extreme but enough to demolish a few trees.
  20. If ever we needed proof that long-term forecasts should be taken with a scoop of salt here are 2 long-term precip forecasts for October. One from the start of September and one recently released: EFFIS - Long-term seasonal forecast of temperature and rainfall anomalies EFFIS.JRC.EC.EUROPA.EU
  21. Clyde will go walking in any weather at all but he can hold a pee for about 16 hours so refuses to go out before bedtime if it's even a drizzle. Fergus on the other hand will go outside any time any weather but he's a spaniel so he's insane. They're MrsC's dogs, I don't really like dogs (apart from Clyde lol).
  22. The other one was even more drookit but he wouldn't pose like Clyde always does.
  23. Soggy skies, soggy roads, soggy fields & soggy doggy. Please please please Mother Nature bring a set-up like this in winter that's cold enough for all this rain to be snow.
