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

Recommended Posts

Another grim day.

Wet off and on all morning giving way to a overcast and breezy afternoon.

Mild though, up to 14.5C this afternoon which is good going considering the dearth of sunshine.

Not bad this morning, but we're getting a right drenching now.  After the first burst eased off at teatime, we had an hour of fog. Then the rain came back on and hasn't stopped since.

Ms HC was up Glen Affric at the weekend and said she's not seen Loch Beinn a'Mheadhoin so low. She could see the tops of the remains of houses flooded whenever it was dammed - early 1950s? I've never seen that and I've been going up there on and off lots for 20 years. (Fair enough, the level is controlled, but still...)

So, the Met Office have issued a Yellow warning for Friday. Why Yellow? I now it's a bit away yet, but all forecasts are singing from the same hymn sheet for once. Some of those gusts are over 80mph, so why just a Yellow warning?

Its to do with the matrix for warnings, they are not just about wind strengths. And it is still 4 days away. A yellow warning is for severe weather. Until the likelihood is higher and along with the impacts, depending on time of day (overnight has less impact than a school day etc), then it would become an amber. This is a heads up at this stage and will be updated. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/guide/weather/warnings This is the matrix for Friday

Rivers are up a bit!

The Strathy

Just keeps on coming. @mistyqueen - webbed toes, webbed fingers yet?

Yep, fingers are beginning to go the same way as feet! Over 1.50 inches of rain since yesterday. It's probably more than that but the max amount my rain gauge will hold is....1.50 inches! Looking forward to Friday, eh? Going to get blown about a bit I think. Maybe I should grow some feathers to help with the flying. Am I turning into a duck perchance?

Morning all,

Cloudy, breezy and mild at 14c. While our friends out west have been getting soaked just light rain on and off here over the last day, not amounting to much.

Classic Scottish weather:

At one point this morning the ground was damp but the breeze has dried it quickly. I might even cut the grass later.

In contrast the rain gauge at Inveruglas on Loch Lomond has recorded 140mm of rain in 36hrs. The dot representing that station has reverted to showing zero rainfall as it's off the normal scale. We're going there in November for a short holiday and I've been trying to explain to MrsC how wet it can be there. She's not getting it.

Amazing how much the mountains have shielded everyone to the east - dry here with the sun trying to break through and up to 15.5C already!

I would hope Tesco spend some of the insurance money on painting their roof, shameful amount of peeling paint up there 😉

A summer's morning in October, a real mash of seasons. I can hear the tattie harvest rumbling in the distance, it's not as quiet as the pictures suggest.

Stunning day, more like high summer than the middle of Autumn.

Wall to wall sunshine, max temperature of 18C and generally light winds.

Nature responding with Hoverflies, Butterflies and a few Bumblebees to be seen - Honeybees though have been absent for quite a few weeks now.

Missed out on the fine weather yesterday. It was cloudy, grey and cool until around 13.00 when the cloud lifted followed by 2-3 hours of hazy sunshine. The temp maxed at 15C before the mist and cloud returned.

This morning is very dark and grey but not feeling too cold. Jess, the dog, took one look outside and, unusually, nipped back to her bed rather than prancing around in expectation of her regular morning walk. I dislike dark mornings too.

Beautiful day yesterday, max temp at home just over 17c. Pretty warm for Skye at this time of year! And now we are back to normal, horizontal rain, muggy and downright miserable! I don't think we're going to get hit as badly as first thought tomorrow, I think Callum is keeping most of his strength for Ireland! I've no doubt we'll get a bit of a blast from him! Stay safe anyhoo folks.

Here it comes... jaffa cakesing down now after a dull, foggy start.

Gosh I'd forgotten about the Jaffa cakes.  Prefer shortbread anyway.

Aye, jaffa caking / shortbreading here too. Started off misty and mild (14C) before the rain moved in. Wonder if there will be much autumn colour left on the trees after tomorrow? It's stunning in places at the moment.

I'm jealous. I've been stuck in inland Caithness since July - they don't really do woodland around here.  I confess to wishing away the rest of this month till the job finishes and I can get my life back, and see some different places - hopefully with some combination of trees, hills, coastline, anything but muddy fields and muddy fields. (rant over)
