so @Norrance you must have been near to me at the same time probably drove past my front door. you could have popped in for a brew and a chin wag.

Drove through Crieff on the way up but came back a different route. If you are near the main road I must have passed close by right enough.

ps. If you are up the hill a bit at Edradynate you may be facing East rather than South😀

I'm tempted to say it's a final blast of summer for some of us but I suspect we'll still be getting hot spells in October:

When I'm out and about across Scotland I always wonder if I'm driving right past NetWeatherers' front doors. I have a rough idea where all the regulars live so I do a wee mental wave to folk on the way past their locale. Sad but there you have it.

@Norrance yes i live less than 20ft off the main road from Crieff to Comrie so you would have indeed passed by my house.

Just hazy sun here today but still reached 22C. Warm enough to make me sweat buckets as i turned a bit of ground in the garden.

Wee walk from Inverkip beach to Lunderston Bay.

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

Am biased but it's a bonnie spot here. Good microclimate, too - usually a little warmer/drier/sunnier than forecast in the summer and more upside in the winter for cauld and snaw generally, too. Plus, cracking dark skies for the other obsession of stargazing.

Usually a smattering of bungalows on the go as well. Rightmove usually has all the current properties up for grabs. 

A late wee burst of summer yesterday and today. Max of 21.0°C and some decent sunshine this arvo. Looking better again tomorrow and Monday not bad, too. Last hurrah for the BBQ this weekend, methinks. Countryside beginning to tip into its early autumnal colours. Looking forward to this winter's snawchase once again. 😁

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  

sunny day here so far, but the radar doesn't look good out west.

There will be some CAPE developing tomorrow but no models developing storms due to lack of a trigger, next threat of storms could be Tuesday night / Wednesday morning with the possibility of some fronts trying to move in from the west.

It's an absolute belter here this morning. Already warm in the sun with a max of 29C possible.

This type of heat has become quite rare in August, at least for Charterhall weather station. If it turns out as forecast it's only the 3rd 25C+ August day since 2006 here, one of them was yesterday and the other was last year. If we do hit 28C or 29C it'll be the warmest August day since 2003. It is probably misrepresentative using an arbitrary figure of 25C but these are the number of days hitting 25C or above at Charterhall over the years:

1989-1994: 0 (data is a bit patchy)

1995: 12

1996: 2

1997: 5

1998: 0

1999: 3

2000: 1

2001: 0

2002: 1

2003: 6

2004: 1

2005: 1

2006: 1

2007- 2017 : 0

2018: 1

2019: 2
 

Weird how it comes and goes and I suppose you would need to do some deeper statistical research before drawing any conclusions.

Edit: Thanks Met-Office...August has become rubbisher after all 😂

I think it was @Sunshineandshowers84 who mentioned this the other day?

Hit about 28c here today, car was saying 30c (which was incorrect) but rather impressive for so late on.

Heat feels far less intense than late June/July. I also like how in the mornings and at night it does cool down a decent bit

Nothing to do with the weather.... as an import from south of the border i have spent the last few hours hiding behind the sofa watching the cricket. wow oh wow what a game. what a player Ben Stokes is. i was more nervous than watching a beast from the east tick down to t24 see i got weather in there some how. think i might need a drink and a lay down...

Roasting hot today with barely a breeze - max here of 27c which is pretty incredible.

22c currently and clear blue sky! Amazing late Summer day! 

Went a wee local walk - bit of a sweat on pushing a pram about for hours!
