Scotland/Alba Regional Weather Discussion 16/03/2018 Onwards

Wet, windy and cool here too. Temp dropped from over 20C in late afternoon to 11C now with wind and rain. Many caught out at the open air concert this evening at Slessor Gardens in town having dressed for Summer.

Here is one photo of the lightning last night taken from Albert Street in Dundee and copied online.

Literally my second worst weather type today An easterly that delivers the slate grey of early schooling and little else other than boring wind chill. Happy tho that those that missed out daan sa

It's been a peculiar and memorable day of weather ?

View east. Angry sky.   Various animal tracks. Mainly rabbits?   View down the Tweed.   Mr Red Robin. Fearless.   Finally, the boy cat s

Shame it's been photoshopped Norrance. Bet there was an original decent photo there.

Oh!

Ta Shuggee. 

How can I tell it is a photoshop? It has been shared on social media and the local newspaper has gone with it too.

Look at the two horizontal lightning traces - they're identical. One would have been sufficiently stunning N!

Felt cold here early on. Heating on in this morning! After a showery and windy day,

When we get a weekend as wet and grey as this, it really reminds me how good this summer has been so far.

Indeed, dreich day with plenty of heavy rain in the afternoon and cool at 14C max.

Going by the completely unscientific bird bath measuring gauge there has been around 25mm of rain here since Friday evening.

Kids so hacked off with the rain they even watched Moana twice - that Shiny song does stick in your head.

Usable day until 4pm with a pleasant max temperature of 19C, light winds and occasional sunny periods.

After 4pm its been another story with rain (some heavy) and a cool feeling 13C - really noticed the shortening nights this evening, lights on by 8pm.

Lovely morning at Rosemarkie on the Black Isle as the last stop of our holiday before we head home tomorrow. Wife wanted to stop off to see her favourite animal, no not @Hairy Celt, but the dolphins, at Channory, who will hopefully put in an appearance in an almost flat calm sea.

Last few days over west in Morven were a bit more unsettled, with us actually getting wet one day. Really though, getting rained on only once during a week in NW Scotland even in July, isn't too bad.

Really devastating day now for anything left green on the farm with a gale force southerly wind at 27% RH and 18c.(The RH in the house is 62%)

Neeps and grass wilting and dying back.Lots of apples and plums being dropped by the trees as drought bites harder today .You would wonder whether there was any rain at all in the last week . Don"t want to water anything as on well supply and needing it for personal use. Dust is blowing off tracks in great clouds.

Only positive thing is spring barley is ripening faster than ever.     Seeing and hearing of reports of pink straw in barley one theory being that the barley plant has died  suddenly from drought trapping  various nutrients in the stems creating the pink colour

Another observation is that with the very dry air visibility is outstanding with the hills across the Firth showing up in great detail.This is unusual at this time of year when everything is usually much more hazy in the distance.

@Northernlights i genuinely wish I could say anything of comfort, this is genuinely off the grid as far as normal weather regimes are concerned.

I like to think of Scotland's most well know singularity ( so named after Buchan singularties ) as being in May.

in 70% of years, this singularity repeats, an HP cell between 15th and 29th May each year.

Except this year it maintained! 

Incredible synoptics and HP in the offing to re-establish after this week, that plus atlantic SSTa and Solar Min.

Watch out for Sea Ice stories over the next few months too..

Thanks for this .Drought Summit being held in London  today Wednesday the  1st of August between all the farm unions and Mr Gove today as most livestock farmers in the UK only have two thirds of their winter feeding requirements made so far this summer, lots of animals are being sent to slaughter early to reduce pressure on this feed which is already being fed in some fields as grass stops growing. We are supplementing too. Not only this vegetables as well will be short this autumn as irrigation supplies are exhausted. At the risk of repeating myself food supplies l will top politicians agendas this autumn not Brexit as large parts of the Northern Hemispheres food growing areas are suffering drought.
