Scotland Regional Weather Discussion 27/01/14

Recommended Posts

Just been trawling for news of southern devastation. I came up with some waves going over a bridge (Newlyn, Cornwall, nice video), a few trees blown over in various places, a blown over trampoline, and, most shockingly, a flooded beach Posted Image . Oh, and the police are investigating a hole in the ground in Hemel Hempstead Posted Image  - just one hole, not in Blackburn. They have been asked to stop digging but are reported to want to get to the bottom of it.  And still endless sniping about climate change from all sides that makes everyone look really silly.

Typical scottish wit or sh. It

6C with a clear blue sky this morning.  Où est tout le monde?  Is there a link between those two sentences?

I'd like to nominate BoyCatchI to be awarded his ceremonial SnowFlakes so he can be regarded as a fully fledged snowfreak:

 

On the way back from Kilmacolm to Kelso on Friday night the sleet was lashing down as we headed past Glasgow Airport and by the time we got to J24 it was snowing heavily. After we crossed the Kingston Bridge, BoyCatchI pipes up from the back of the car (with a wee giggle), "This is the best day of my life!!". Assuming that he was happy because we hadn't seen each other for a couple of months I replied "Aww, that's nice, I've missed you too". Without missing a beat he replied, laughing his head off "Nooooooo Dad, it's the best day of my life because of the awesome snow", after a thoughtful pause he added, "but it's quite nice to see you too". I was so chuffed with him, a proper little Catch off the block Posted Image

 

Seconded. Kids eh? Can't keep 'em down for long.

In Edinburgh this morning and although 8C by 13:00 the wind of the Forth would skin a rabbit.

Amazing photo Scotster!

 

My meagre offerings from ground level. Didn't go on a big journey on the bike. Probably about 40 miles. Hands were very cold despite having winter Halvarssons Swedish winter gloves. Went from Clarkston to Newton Mearns, Neilston, then over the rollercoaster B road to Stewarton. Then along the old A77 and over Eaglesham Moor which is where I took these photos and got some feeling back in my fingers. There was still patches of snow at the Whitelees Wind Farm and Arran looked stunning but by the time I stopped the cloud had moved in so the first photo doesn't show up a snowy Goat Fell.

 

It was nice to be out on dry roads and see the sun.Posted Image

I like those pictures lots as well as Scotster's. Motorbikes & turbines, two of my lives...Posted Image

Did one of my evening commutes just now and saw -1.5c at Kinbrace and thought, crikey, that's low. Then thought, hang on, this is Kinbrace in February, -1.5C? Posted ImagePosted Image

Let me indulge you...

 

3 photos from Whitlees Windfarm in a freezing May 2013 with Irish artist Adrian Crowley.

 

Bike photo from Xmas Day 2008 with me and my friend Gerry at Loch Drunkie in the Trossachs. I've got the Yamaha XT660X and Gerry has the KTM 990 Adventure.

 

Back to Adrian Crowley. Stunning video that includes lovely footage of Ireland, mountains, clouds & stars.

 

Enjoy!

Good morning. Started off with a frost here this morning, broken high cloud and a temp of -1.5C at 7:30am. Clouding over a bit now though but flag outside the office is limp so no wind to speak of.

 

Would have preferred to have been at Glenshee today but lack of pre-booking a days holiday and my boss not responding to my text message yesterday put paid to that (bit of a long shot anyway but funny how if he ever needs something from me on a weekend he always gets a reply, even if it isn't exactly instant). Need to pray that this weekend doesn't end up stormy so the wife and I can try out our new skis/boots (visiting Decathlon when they have a sale on is fatal for your bank balance).

Now, this doesn't happen often but.......

Events conspired in my favour this morning and I was able to hitch a ride from Perth to Drumochter and back, via Lochs Garry, Rannoch and Tummel.  Never seen Scotland looking so beautiful Posted Image

 

Fantastic shot! I cant wait to get up there in 2/3 weeks climbing, my last attempt around Christmas was impossible due to Hurricane force winds on the Hill.. So much snow on the mountains now which is also fantastic for the Ski Resorts, They had sold out at Glencoe by late morning yesterday.

Overnight min of -4C just north of Forsinard, coldest of the winter. Shocking.

Still a few forlorn patches of snow in the garden.....and still not particularly mild.  I'm starting to like this set-up if it means the hills get utterly plastered......assuming we can ever get up into them when there's no murk or gales or whiteouts of course!

Feeling cool and damp here. 5.5C. Frost for a time last night before the cloud came in. A snow cover again this morning up at my mums in Highland Perthshire but only a cm or so.

  • Temperatures into heatwave territory and no rain

    Some parts of the UK could qualify for heatwave conditions later this week and it's not the usual suspects. No rain as water levels decline and how are the evening skies for LanuchAmerica viewing? Watch the video here

    High pressure continues to dominate our weather until at least early next week, with most staying dry and fine. The warm conditions will spread north, and the highest temperatures will transfer to the west as the high moves east and eventually over Scandinavia. Read the full update here
