Scotland/Alba Weather Discussion 2019

Recommended Posts

Rank rotten day - 19c, half an hour of sunshine and torrential rain/showers.

Ferries were cancelled this morning due to 40mph gusts and the trains have been cancelled since 9am this morning due to a branch damaging overhead lines at Bishopton. 

Had some lightning to my North East earlier - no view of it as I am in the house! (Rain was unreal)

Tomorrow looks much better! 20c (add a degree or two) plenty of sunshine and thunderstorms risk - looking forward to it.

Thought that it was quite windy here but saw this tweet from Luxembourg.

Radar is looking very interesting for many of us - thought the lightning might die out but it’s definitely not!

Debating running up the hill! 😂

Good stuff is going to be East/South East of me - heads up @Stormeh Barrhead might be very well placed!

@Sunshineandshowers84 same issue with low cloud here and drizzle currently! Would not be able to see a thing in any direction.

I can just make out the anvil of that cloud south of East Kilbride now obscured by lower cloud. It appears to be possibly East Ayrshire where it borders Dumfries & Galloway that area. It could dissipate by the time it gets here..

The worst of the rain eased off maybe 90 mins ago but the cloudbase is pretty much sea level and there's thick drizzle blowing in off the firth. Our moat receded before it got as far as the sticks shed today.

Nice one! You crossed my mind when looking at the radar but wasn’t sure of location!

Hopefully you see some action!

Some of the heaviest rain i’ve had here in 10 years this evening. Almost came into the house it was running down the yard that fast

Decent day here once the rain passed through, hit 21c and sunny but it has gone rapidly downhill. The true meaning of torrential to the point where it took 3 towels to dry half the kitchen as a window had been left open due to the earlier warmth

 

Said shower is heading WNW towards Glasgow or just to the West

@Huntforsnow you might get lucky if it all swings a bit South West.

I am also currently hanging out my window looking in all directions now! 😂

Torrential rain now - lightning seems to be dying off!

Ayrshire daily news on Facebook has a video of that storm causing flash flooding in Cumnock. Kilmarnock about to get hit by some extreme rain/hail from that cell.

 

Torrential rain approaching South Glasgow but I've only heard one rumble of thunder so far.

No thunder here but the rain is unreal, water starting to leak through the roof of the work warehouse.

This is more of an outlook than a certain forecast as tomorrow will likely be an ever changing and complex setup with this deep low moving across the UK image.thumb.png.c85f384ab63cbf1a6388f618bcde79ee.png

Yellow zone = flood risk due to a band of heavy rain moving across the country tomorrow morning, and especially for us east coasters very unpleasant with a strong easterly wind accompanying the rain.

Orange zone = most likely areas to monitor for thunderstorm development tomorrow afternoon / evening as moderate amounts of CAPE build after the early band of rain clears, doubts for me will be how quickly the cloudy skies move away and let the sun / convection develop and also the winds will be due to switch from an easterly (thunderstorm killer)  to a southerly especially further south / west in the orange zone, also I would put the chances of funnels / tornadoes as a lower risk ATM but the threat could exist should the storms develop, main risks with the storms likely to be intense rainfall again leading to more flooding and lightning.

Best things will be to keep an eye on the radar and xc weather for that switch in wind direction.  

 

Flooding risk played out as expected with Arbroath, St Andrews etc experiencing flooding https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/local/perth-kinross/953931/flooding-hits-roads-across-tayside-and-fife-with-rivers-and-communites-at-risk-in-perthshire/ https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/local/dundee/954089/video-footage-shows-flooding-turning-main-road-between-dundee-and-angus-into-river/ https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/local/angus-mearns/954197/river-levels-in-this-area-are-rising-sepa-issues-flood-warning-for-arbroath-town-centre/ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-49282832

Looks like the combination of the band of rain clearing slower than modeled and the easterly wind persisting (and doing its usual effect of killing off the storms in the east) as I feared.

My forecast map for tomorrow image.thumb.png.423d765350b7ff0e431276b7e0e08cfa.png area of moderate CAPE looks like developing and a front interacting with it likely to spark off thunderstorms during the afternoon / evening starting in the NW of the orange zone moving SE as the winds switch to a north westerly with threats being intense rainfall giving the chance of further flooding and frequent lightning.

Good to see some of you lot in the west getting some storms, always better placed as less effect from the easterly wind.

Not surprised, you're disappearing under what looks like >25mm rain/hour on the radar! Mind your coat.

This summer reminds me of 2008 an awful wet summer and a lot of Thundery weather. Also similar to 2004 quite a warm and humid summer but also lot of Thundery weather infact in 2004 you had a storm nearly every week but also some decent weather too so was actually better than this summer..
