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

Recommended Posts

Caithness was a wet and midgy mess today, very unpleasant indeed.  Apparently the Ness was well up, and plenty of other rivers too.  The slow recharge of the last 3 weeks is becoming noticeable in the rivers.

Strange how unforecastable the wind speeds are, even at such short range.

A day of two halves. 

The morning was wet and murky but mild with light winds.

Afternoon a very pleasant affair with mainly sunny skies and a maximum temperature of 19C, though the wind noticeably picked up late in the afternoon - the prelude to the main story tomorrow, though I notice the automated met office forecast has lowered the maximum gust speed for here compared with earlier this evening.

Amber warranted I reckon, heavy foliage, not had a hoolie for  a while.. public caught up in benign weather.

System is juiced to the max via strong jet, bombing nicely on satellite. Sting jet potential in this one too.

Time for shipping forecast :) stay safe if travelling

Husband says it was very still and calm when he got up at 5  but already starting to blow a bit and the clouds are flying east. I really don't like gales from the south, they hit my front windows head on and sooner or later they are going to go 😳

Still very calm here, with some morning sunshine breaking through.

I can see the tips of the trees starting to sway a tad, but that's it so far.

A fine sunrise this morning but hazing over now, breezy, temp 12C. 

I’m more concerned about the Sat/Sun storm as I am booked on a ferry from Oban on Sunday afternoon. Will that depression be as intense as originally projected? I knew adding “pack swimsuit” to the list was liable to tempt fate😞

Anyway I’m resigned to the likelihood of disruption to plans.

Morning all! A bit blustery during the night with a wee spattering of rain. Maybe around one and a half inches since yesterday morning. Relatively calm here, just had another wee bluster passing through. It's not going to be so bad up here, but I have a visitor travelling up from Glasgow by bus today, so that may be quite an interesting journey! Stay safe all, enjoy the storm from indoors!

Still raining quite heavily here but wind is rising from the South. Av speed at the Uni is 40mph with a peak gust so far of 65moh around 15 minutes ago. Bridge is still open to all but couple deckers.

You got to love Scotland's weather - looking outside it's literally sunny, raining and windy all at the same time, though the sun is going to go quickly.

Rain so far this morning not been that bad.  Leaves falling readily from the trees though (especially the horse chestnuts) and worst of the wind still to come so fully expect to see some bare trees by the end of the day.

Pelting down in Caithness, an absolute deluge. Winds nowt to speak of - yet - and it looks like tonight we'll get the worst of that.

Back to doing my 🦆 impression now...

Where did summer go? Not that mine went to plan anyway as I came down with severe pneumonia and had weeks in hospital. So didn't see much of it!

 

First lively weather of the season and it has really picked up here now. Mix of sunshine and very squally showers. Wind really gusting now. Plenty twigs and small branches coming down from the trees behind the house with the occasional thud as they his the greenhouse. Reports of a number of local roads affected by branches and fallen trees.

Sunny raining and windy here too. A fantastic rainbow in the field so will look for the pot of gold later.20180919_102556.thumb.jpg.cc279fe6736a02ee92da7c70823609ea.jpg20180919_102605.thumb.jpg.d7af529884b847d72c9ca5f9c8829c51.jpg

Some vicious gusts last night about 1.00am has broken open gates and taken several big limbs off several ash trees  so on top of keeping an eye on calving cows have had a bit of tridying up to do this morning. Currently squally heavy rain and 12c.

Just started blowing up again, seems we were in the eye of the storm for a wee while there. It's not looking like it's going to get very wild up here, thankfully! The sun is even trying to come out now!

Left work early and working from home. Drive from Edinburgh to Falkirk wasn't too bad but quite wet.  Seems quite windy here just now but I've definitely seen it worse.

Anyone know what time it's meant to peak?

Was woken up by an incredible squall here at Mar Lodge just before 2am. Thunderbolt, lightning, very very frightening!
