Scotland/Alba Weather Discussion 2019

Recommended Posts

Sort of warm and dull in Hull this afternoon. Just heading out into the Humber and looking forward to a few days of warmth courtesy of the Low Countries and Denmark. Could be a last blast of summer for me....

Did someone mention Summer returning!? 👀👀👀 Yaaaaassss! Honestly I have been getting drenched for about five days now so that is a welcome relief!

Unfortunately more of the same tomorrow and Thursday here with a strong wind just to p.i.s.s me off even more! 😀

Weekend now looks pretty good as discussed already - warm temperatures and sunshine is what I have been craving! 

Summer is slipping away here - sunsets will be out of view from my window within a couple of weeks! 😟

Great one last night.

Bring on the weekend! ☀️

Bit of a shower showing up at least on radar to the west of Aberdeen, with the main rain band down the west coast and another area around Inverness/Black Isle.

Sunday could be a day to watch for possible thunderstorms with pressure trying to lower and a plume of sorts moving up from the s / sw nmm-28-103-0.thumb.png.29b72d9ed8ca69ae37a860d99ff5b005.png  nmm-6-103-0.thumb.png.98687f07979b44bfb5255818e40fcde3.png nmm-2-103-0.thumb.png.65d67d00091bbfd287db9123b6d150c2.png

Quite warm weather incoming for the weekend and perhaps beyond. Hopefully for here not too much of an Easterly or SE influence. Just a little rain here this afternoon and feeling quite mild though the current temp is down to 15C.

Noticed the annual snow survey of mountain snow patches has been published. Only 8 left in total with 4 on Nevis likely to melt in the next couple of weeks. This would leave 3 on Braeriach with one there also likely to go soon and one on Aonach Beag. If all the snow on Braeriach melts this would mean 3 years in a row which is the same number as in the whole of the last century.

Proper rank rotten day - started off with a bit of sun but went quickly downhill just after 13:00.

Heavy rain and wind gusting to 35/40mph - like a late September day!

Last of it cleared through just after 20:00. (Rain shaft to the East and sun/clear sky to the West)

Sunday looks the best day for warmth/sunshine here in the West and I wouldn’t mind a wee thunderstorm at some point @Kirkcaldy Weather 😀

Harvest finished for 2019 after what has been a very challanging summer. Very breezy but mostly cloudy day  helped to dry up the crop and the straw to get the last field and start baling the straw.013.thumb.JPG.d82380e962e6e9dde13d6a2ade0d5e79.JPG009.thumb.JPG.93286979c66ec195a4a4a16820ec5918.JPG

It's a smashing start in the south-east of Scotland but it won't last:

Hopefully we get a few decent days with the warm wave coming up. Plus a good storm or too.

Very windy with plenty of sunshine and  a few passing drizzle showers in the morning.Fabulous drying day so in the afternoon we finished baling the straw  (rows of straw being blown about in the wind ) and even baled some late hay. Best hay drying day of the summer in fact. So grain/straw harvest secured.Really felt like a traditional harvest day in September.

Morning all

This has turned into a very decent upcoming warm spell! Looking at 25c in parts of Scotland or maybe a degree or two higher - Glasgow, Edinburgh and @CatchMyDrift especially down there! (Just to name a few places - many of us will be basking in warmth)

Really looking forward to it after a very wet and windy couple of days here!

Have a good weekend everyone and enjoy the late Summer warmth/sunshine! ☀️

Glad you got there in the end NL, it sounds you need strong nerves to be a farmer!  I never realised 🙂

It's a decent start to the day:

No beech trees for @Hairy Celt to remember Scotland by on his European adventures. This is the view from the road outside the house when I arrived home from work. As @Mr Frost has posted it looks likely to be a smashing weekend. I think the paddling pool might have to be rescued from the back of the shed 😎

looking at a house on the Edradynate Estate in highland Perthshire on Monday. after researching the area the estate seems to be 200m asl so all being well i think that will do for the big snow family..

Last week’s weather was quite forgettable in Wester Ross. Took this pic en route to Ullapool on the one warmish, almost T-shirt day!

I have missed my annual dose of France this year.:oldsad:

Only downside is that this may face South so snow melts more quickly than on the opposite side of the valley. Only really a problem if you like  hard ice after snow has been lying a while. Good for snow from East and West and also from breakdown and frontal events but a bit sheltered (not totally) from the North/North West.

Up in Perthshire myself today in Polar Gael's area. Beautiful day there though not full sunshine. Car showed 22C. Had forgotten how wide the valley is at Comrie and how it is almost wholly surrounded by beautiful hills in almost a bowl shape as seen from Cultybraggan. Should have taken my camera😟.

Even my wife, a town/city girl might be persuaded to retire up there. Any bungalows for sale there at a decent price?. @Polar Gael
