  1. Some severe weather coming from parts of the Western Isles this afternoon. This was the GFS gusts forecast for 3pm today A weather station is South Uist reported 95mph shortly before 2pm and in Barra 88mph. The Met Office station in that area from South Uist has so far reached 82mph. There are a few reports of some damage coming in at the moment on Facebook and one of the beaches has eroded away badly in the past 24 hours, How it should look for comparison

  4. It only reached -2.2°C here last night nothing as extreme compared to some other locations but it was still our 3rd coldest night of the winter so far with -2.4°C on the 24th of January and -3.8°C on the 9th of January being the only two other nights that had colder temperatures. Today its been dry and sunny again so no snow on the lower ground just on the hills. The pictures where taken this afternoon,
  5. The clearer weather today allowed the NASA satellite to get a good view of the snow over Scotland Zoomed out view, South, Central, East, North, Orkney & Shetland, UK,
  6. An overnight low of -1.7c our coldest night since the 24th of January. We had some snow over night leaving a light cover this morning on the lower levels but it's melted away now. I took these photos just after 3pm today looking North.
  7. Light dusting of snow here in Dunoon today it snowed on Saturday evening and again over night with a min temp of -2.4c. Today has been dry and sunny but it's just started to snow again around 5pm. Some photos I took today from the back garden,
  8. Another cloudy rainy day here we usually get a lot of rain but there seems to be more of it recently just never seems to stop. Highest temp today was 12.9c at 7.53pm and compare that to last November the highest I got was 10.8c on the 2nd of November.
  9. Having just recently moved away from Barra last year the fires would happen every year I lived there and most of the time always gets out of control about 2 years ago the island saw the worst fire in a long time someone started a fire and just left it uncontrolled the wind direction made the fire move across the island over hills and far away from any of the main roads which made it difficult for the fire crew to try and put it out. The fire the next morning reached the North end of the island and was closing in on some houses the fire crew from Uist another island came over on the ferry and t
  10. For my location overall the winter wasn't anything amazing but not too bad either. November saw a good number of sunny days along with frosts and icy weather while we went into December it turned unsettled for the first half with wet and windy weather but by the time Christmas and New Year arrived high pressure came in control to give us a settled spell of weather which was a welcome and I saw more icy and frosty weather that certainly gave it a more Christmas feel. January started off unsettled again with more wet and windy weather and even a storm but similarly to December by the m
  11. It's been a few weeks since I last posted the weather here in Dunoon has been pretty good recently plenty of days with no rain or wind and sunny as well thanks to that high pressure. On Monday we had a max temp of 11.6c our highest since the 23rd of October a sign at last spring is here. It's all change today though colder in the strong North Westerly wind with gusts around 40mph but for now its still staying dry with some sunny spells. It's looking to stay unsettled for the next few days but at least according to the 00z ECM high pressure may try to make a brief return at the start of next we
  12. This week so far in Dunoon has been cloudy with showers no real change then! Today was very windy for a while in the afternoon with a few heavy hail showers but mostly it's all just been rain. The snow on the hills around here has almost gone now. The good news is high pressure looks to be coming in next week giving us some drier and settled weather but how long it will last is still uncertain at the moment.
  13. It was a nice sunny day here in Dunoon the best day of weather we've had in a few days after going about 5 days straight with heavy showers and mostly cloudy. Went out this afternoon to take some photos a few of the hills still with snow on them, Some boats sitting outside Greenock in the distance, A look over to Gourock, And looking over to Gourock again possibly some of Greenock and I believe that's also Erskine bridge in the distance as well just shows you how good the visibility was today.
  14. Its been a cloudy day here we had a few heavy sleet showers earlier on today. Most of the snow we had on the ground has melted away today.
  15. Nice pictures I didn't know you came over to Dunoon today in the picture above is actually where I live in one of the houses on the right lol.
  16. Overnight we had some more snow with a light covering on the ground this morning. This afternoon so far has been sunny with a few hail and sleet showers passing through.
  17. Got some pictures of the snow here in Dunoon the shower lasted at least half an hour and its just started to snow again, One of the sheep in the field was the first to notice and went down the hill to shelter, The rest soon followed, Once it cleared the sun came back out and it left a light dusting of snow on the field something I haven't seen this winter, The hills still looking snowy, @Mr Frost Yes we have settling snow on the grass over here just a small amount though and on the cars as well. The roads and pavements are all still c
  18. Currently heavy snow here in Dunoon and its actually started to settle on the ground for once, Earlier today it was clearer and sunny and still plenty of snow on the hills,
  19. We had some sleet and snow showers in the morning but it didn't settle at low level still just on the hills. Today has been cloudy but mostly on the dry side.
  20. The showers have eased off today here in Dunoon but a few are still about at least the wind has finally gone down. In between the showers we had some nice sunshine and the snow still remains on the hills also saw a few rainbows appear today its still cold with a low of 2.6c at 10.57am currently at 5pm the temp is 4.5c.
  21. Very heavy showers with strong gusts last night around 60mph here. This morning at 10.30am and again at 11.30am we had some thunder followed by a very heavy hail shower.
  22. Possible storm coming on Monday for Scotland but there's still come uncertainty over it as explained in this video So what do the models show this evening? Well between the GFS, ECM and ICON all show a similar track with the low passing over highlands, Which would mean the strongest winds would be over the central belt from about 12pm to 9pm on Monday I think it would bring very strong gusts inland as the low pressure is passing right over Scotland most of the lows and storms we've had this winter have been out in the Atlantic this time it looks like it's going to act
  23. All week here in Dunoon its been wet and windy with constant heavy showers mostly just rain but some had a bit of hail mixed in. Today has probably been the best day of weather this week so far we've had some sunshine and also around 2pm we had a heavy snow shower mixed with a bit of sleet and hail too it was enough to turn the place white and stayed that way for at least 2 hours something we haven't had this winter so far the temperature before the heavy shower arrived was 3.6c and dropped to 1.7c in just 15 minutes.
  24. I never expected Storm Dennis to bring too much of a strong wind since it was way out in the Atlantic we only really got a bit of the wind it was the rain that was the big issue from this storm and the high tides haven't helped. Yesterday Dunoon saw some roads flooding and some of the roads down at the shore closed for a time. Today around when the tide got high again I went out to take some pictures of the waves. You could hear the waves crashing into the rocks. The wall on the right is actually a old abandoned building there's still a shop going beside it getting hit by the
