Scotland/Alba Weather Discussion 2019

Recommended Posts

Not great weather today  sporadic   rain, breezy and 13c certainly not haymaking weather. Looking on the radar there is strange gap in the rain just to the west of Inverness but rain seems to reform over us when you run the animation.

Unexpected frontal rain now cloudy. (Did I mis-hear/not pay attention to the forecast?)

Ah autumn in July, what's to like 🙄

Persistent rain for most of the day, though dry now.  Max of 14c and a fresh W wind.

Just back from a dull, windy and damp week up by Brora.  Variations in the weather limited to slight changes in strength (not much to some) and direction (north-west of just west), temp (range from 9C to 13C), rain (none to a bit)…. Oh and all but no sun.  We were camping so it was ok for that, ie not wet and enough wind mostly to keep the WFFs down and no early morning sun to force you out of the tent/oven. Ticks though, aargh.

Back to Fortrose a couple of hours ago and there's some pale sunshine and it was 17C.

Beer o'clock soon.

Ticks are the Devil's work for sure. Awful. 

Cloud. Rain. Cloud. Quite warm.

Meh

Cool cloudy day with a breeze from the north but dry with a high of 14c. Every plants on  a go slow again strawberries slow to ripen and grass  growth slowing up to. No hay made as yet. Imagine if we had had this many north winds over two months in winter.See its currently not much above freezing on the summit of Cairngorm.When I was a kid there were no live updates of these summit temperatures and I find it fascinating todays technology allows us to view them.On the subject of technology my wifes bank told her she will soon be ablesto scan in lower value cheques using an app on her phone.Another reason for less branches.

Dismal cool and grey day on the whole.  Cool breeze with rain on and off.

 Visited Kildrummy Castle today, well, the car park, but under a grey sky, chilly brisk wind and a temp of 11C, decided not to pay for the privilege of hiking up the hill.

Opted instead for a woodland walk near Ordie/Dinnet.

There was a gradual improvement later in the afternoon with occasional glimpses of the sun and the temp soaring to 16C.:oldrolleyes:

Cold and grey here. Rubbish summer so far apart from a few good bits.
