Scotland/Alba Weather Discussion 2019

Recommended Posts

Humid misty day .Thought neeps were growing well so young Mr. Northernlights went to take Donald and Boris(scarecrows) down this morning and he noticed the diamond back moths were back again and so were there caterpillars eating holes in the leaves.Phoned agronomist and will have to spray them with insecticide plus a foliar feed tomorrow.This is a first for us needing two insecticide sprays in one season.I wonder if this is because of different weather patterns due to climate change.causing them to be able come across from Europe more easily. Currently dull and 21c

Cloudy start and also cloudy when I went into Aberdeen but warmish.  Came home and this afternoon has been warm and sunny.  Max of 21.6C, very nice.

That downpour between Kilmarnock and Ayr looks pretty bad and has been going for a while. Unsurprisingly reports of flooding starting to appear.

My dad has just phoned and said they are stuck in traffic on the A77 due to serious flooding. It doesn’t surprise me looking at the radar over the last few hours.

Yeah it's just trained in on the same area and kept building for hours. Loads of reports of people pulling over, A77 flooded in both directions and the fire brigade called out. No photos through yet though!

Wow, that's some severe flooding, I've never seen that part of road with even a little flooding - hopefully the link works. (A77 flooding at Bellfield has previously been River flooding)

Maybe its just old age but these humid nights and lack of sleep are getting to me.The continual humidity is making everyone short temperd especially when doing physical jobs outside. I also believe that drivers are less alert and have seen numerous bumps on the local roads in the last week Currently dull misty 98%RH and 16.5c. Real dog days of summer now. Roll on a cool breezy autumn.

The warmth on many nights is remarkable. For example, we hit 22C here yesterday which is 2.5C above the average max but our overnight low was 5.7C above average at 16C with RH at 98%.

I'm hoping my workplace has cooled off a little since last week when I'm back in tonight. The upstairs indoor thermometer was reading a constant 27C last week, not good working conditions.

I'm not sure if it's the warmth which causes more accidents, there seem to be a hard core of road users who drive idiotically. I drive a reasonable amount (24k+ a year) and it's usual to have to take severe evasive action to avoid collisions.

I appreciate that undertaking physical work during this warm, muggy spell is difficult, but on the other hand I do prefer this weather type to persistent grey sky, cold drizzle or gales. For example, I was able to sit outside comfortably on Saturday evening wearing a frock (a rare occurrence :shok:) without cardy or jacket.

Foggy, no wind to speak of and temp 16C early this morning, but I see cooler weather may be set to filter down.

Well we landed up with a very fine drizzle on Saturday evening.   Plenty of areas in the garden were covered though, so festivities weren't dampened!   Great success after all the anxiety.   Didn't break up 'till 3am.:blink2:

Today is dry though and still overcast and muggy with very little wind (and no sun either)

Hmm.......Wakened  by a screetch of brakes and a loud bang just after 6am this morning, followed by police and ambulance sirens!

Turns out a 4x4 collided with a William Purvis low loader head on!   Don't know if anyone was hurt though.  Hopefully not!  Clearance took ages.

Yellow thunderstorm warning out for Wed for a lot of Scotland (excluding me of course). Largely cloudy and calm here too but feeling warm. Been a few good days here for me to knock the garden into shape, being generally dry and warm, but not too warm. 

Not liking the look of next week, temps likely to barely manage mid teens for highs.

My storm risk map for tomorrow image.thumb.png.5e937976b818c6974a13cf0c93008717.png could also be some cells that develop further east but main focus should be in that orange zone (easterly wind likely to pick up which as I discussed usually kills any storms around here so not keen on anything here hence no zone further east) Orange zone threats - frequent lightning and intense rainfall with medium - high risk of flooding, discussion - storms look likely to develop with plentiful amounts of both SBCAPE and MUCAPE with a front moving up from the SW and also a convergence zone looking like setting up focusing the storms over the orange zone, after a few days of heavy rain and the likeliness of intense rainfall in a short space of time flooding will be likely so if in this area keeping an eye on the radar will be a good idea.

@Mr Frost @Ross B @Stormeh in with a chance tomorrow.

Looking good mate! Cheers once again for taking the time to deliver another storm risk map/outlook - enjoy reading them!

I am feeling quite confident for here tomorrow (there goes any chance I did have! 😂

Radar at the ready for tomorrow - really has been quite the Summer for thunderstorm warnings/outlooks! Most of my thunderstorms happened at the end of June - bits and bobs since.

Peaked at 18c today - heavy showers on and off - low hanging clouds the order of today!

If going into August there is no sign of a plume/heat/thunderstorms I would like to fast forward straight into Winter!

Thanks. Gauranteed as I'll be back down in North East England!  There does look like a good chance of thundery downpours training on the same areas, hopefully the flash flooding won't be as bad as yesterday.

Morning all

21c predicted for today, sunny spells and torrential downpours/thunderstorms - Ayrshire looks the sweet spot for any action if you enjoy a bit of wild weather. (Hopefully no flooding)

Misty/gloomy start here.

Another round of torrential downpours/thunderstorms tomorrow.

Pretty impressive temperature wise recently and again this week - above average month on the cards for all of us I would imagine.

@Kirkcaldy Weather the reindeers up in Lapland will be loving the weather now!
