coaster replied to ajpoolshark's topic in Regional DiscussionsFrom 7pm last night until 7pm tonight i have recorded 100.5mm of rain here in F.W. No sign of the rain going off any time soon. This could well be the wettest spell in this town for several years.... The only glimmer of light with regards to flooding is the fact that there is no snow melt taking place on the mountains otherwise things could be a whole lot worse.
I live in Fort William and i am confident that we will see the first noticeable but brief snowfall of the Autumn on Nevis Range. Mountain snow fall in September is not particularly unusual but 'lasting' snows until the following winter are exceptionally rare in September such as the falls that occurred at the Cairngorm mountains in early Sept 76 following the famously hot summer that year ,particularly south of the border. Keep your eyes on the Aonach Mor webcams on Tue for a dusting near the summit.
