Scotland/Alba Weather Discussion 2019

Recommended Posts

Horrendous night, just hyrdroplaned really badly for what felt like ages through a flood on the A77 which woke me up!  Roads have turned into rivers with loads of flooding around, wouldn't be surprised to hear of some of the floods starting to impact property given the torrential rain continues.

Glad you are here to inform the forum! Being out of control in any mode of transport is unnerving! 

It has been pretty bad rain wise in the Southside of Glasgow since this afternoon. Wouldn’t be surprised if the Rangers v Celtic cup final at Hampden is called off. The pitch wasn’t coping well during the recent Scotland game against San Marino. That rain was over a shorter time scale and more intense but this is heavy and over a much longer period. Minimum there will be a pitch inspection.

My nephew has his first driving lessson in Shawlands just before kick off so if it cancelled it might not be a bad thing.

Thanks, yes, probably the worst that's ever happened to me and I've driven through much heavier rain. I could do nothing about it though given darkness and you couldn't see the edges of the water since it went all the way across the road (dual carriageway).

scary stuff @Ross B hope you are okay.  Welcome back @Cheggers 😀

Some interest for those of you in the west tomorrow morning (roughly 9 am) through tomorrow afternoon with some decent CAPE moving in off the Atlantic bringing the risk of thundery showers with hail.  A very rough map from me image.thumb.png.5daccf031c284f0976fdbdcc836bffaf.png @Mr Frost might be some for you 🌩️

Evening all, sorry not been online for a while, new job got me on the road a while to sort some stuff out. Absolutely dreadful few days, wet windy and just general muck, but I take it the colder weather is set to return. Hope everyone is doing well, and ready for some festivities. Some white stuff wouldn't go amiss.

Welcome back

You have missed epic discussions 

 

What's your favourite river

Morning Kilties. Horrible wild night here until about I think 4am, then things went quiet. Now very still, no wind and no rain. But not poked wee nose ootside yet so canny see what's going on.

Utterly crappy weekend weatherwise, stair-rod rain and big blustery winds. One of my weather stations is showing an outside temp of 29.2c. New batteries put in the sensor a fortnight ago so clearly something amiss somewhere! Tuesday looks like an interesting day, eh? Better make sure everything is tied down outside before then. 

River Sligachan was like a wee dried up burn last Tuesday. Been a while since I've seen it like that, last summer I think. What a difference a few days make! If you like white water rafting that's the place to go today! Also the waterfall at Clach na Beinn on the road up from Broadford looked a bit mad yesterday, so I guess it'll be worse than a white raging torrent today!

Cooling down this morning at 5c after a very windy night and quite a bit of rain from yesterday afternoon onwards.Patching farm track yesterday as potholes getting bigger.The track is always a good indicator of the weather we have had as the wet autumn this year has really made the potholes grow.

Shower clouds to thewest taking on that yellow colour suggestive of snow coming from them and sure enough Glencoe webcams are showing fresh snow falling.

Cracking winter day up here, sunny, strong winds and 5C. No sign of snowfall for the surrounding hills, but the ski resorts have had fresh cover overnight.

Torrential rain here with a big clap of thunder a few moments ago. Where is the snaw?? Please tell me it’s not going to be a boring wet and windy winter 🙄

There was talk of the Rangers and Celtic game being called off today. The Hampden pitch was in terrible condition a few weeks ago when Scotland were playing so it wouldn’t surprise me.

Heavy showers here last night and that's when the wind picked up the highest gust so far today is 55mph reported at 9am. Today so far isn't as dull compared to yesterday with better visibility that being said its still cloudy with heavy showers about and a lot more windy.

Proper blowy here in Braemar,  loads of rain through the night. Glad I managed to reseal my rooflight last week or it would have been dripping all night.some snow on the tops of the hills round about and the wind has gotten much colder.10 mins outside and that was enough for me. 3 degrees now but feels much colder. We open again on Friday,  here's hoping for snow to bring in the skiers.

 

Drove to oban and back yesterday and the roads were terrible, so much water. ...and potholes..

Heavy showers getting through to here too from the West. Just wish as many got through when cold enough for snow!

Temp fell from 9.7C at midnight to 3.7C this morning. Now 4.8C so not surprised that the higher hills are white again.

Cows did not spend long outside at neeps today and came straight in very quickly to get away  from the sharp showers and strong wind. Maybe the foot of mud in the field also acts as an incentive to coming back in again.A nice golden bed of straw awaits them  and they soon ly down to chew the cud.

Looks spot on mate - debating whether to head up the local hill this morning for a wee while. (These are the best kind of days to capture the showers/cloudscapes as they move in - had a similar day at the end of October with snow over the mountains/plenty of rainbows)

Thanks, nice to see lightning in the showers out west so far today

Do you live in a different country 🤣 wild night and day so far here with constant howling wind and heavy showers rattling through, currently on 10.2 mm here so far today and temperature 6.0 C / DP 4.2 C 

looking at some of the short range models outside chance of some snow showers near @tiff as we head overnight tonight / early tomorrow morning.

Down draft is correct.

Phone a chimney sweep and ask him to fit weather cowls. That will prevent rooms full of smoke on windy days 👍
