Scotland /Alba weather discussion 2020


Recommended Posts

I see the Met forecast for the Lothians mentions "snow to lower levels is possible on Wednesday night". Think @edinburgh_1992 mentioned the possibility last week. Certainly a possibility on some of the charts. Won't be holding my breath. Really enjoyed having some decent usable dry weather over the weekend. Couple of nice walks locally and just good to be out in some weak, early spring sunshine. Sadly back to pish today though and expecting a miserable cycle home later!

Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

Standing an impressive 5ft 5in tall - the kids have done well with limited resources ?

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

Certainly looks interesting from a 'good god isn't this infernal winter over yet' point of view...

Has there been an occassion this 'winter' that -10C air at 850hpa has visited our shores? Not sure that I've actually seen it.

A few hours of heavy rain this afternoon made a welcome change. Still feeling cold, currently 4C . Throw in the wind and the real feel is 0C.

Yep, worth keeping an eye on. Unfortunately very marginal again. Next week could high pressure finally bring us some good weather? GFS thinks so, ECMWF keeping us on the wet, mild and windy edge again :( 

Looking abroad, quite a significant spell of cold weather seems to be heading towards south-eastern europe. A beast that keeps on coming. Shame it’s not heading anywhere near us

Evening all

I can’t even get excited about wintry showers on low ground at this time of year - had about fifty of them through the last week of February! Sleet, graupel and a bit of wet snow and repeat. (Great for cloudscapes and the joy of when it all turns to heavy snow for five minutes! ?)

Oh for a settled, sunny and warm period or even a proper cold/snowy spell! 

I really wish we could quarantine/isolate boring, mundane and totally shitey weather. ?  

Have a good week everyone.

We have. It's in quarantine here, in Scotland. On top of us. ?

Yellow warning out now for snow and ice for pretty much all of Scotland except western coastal areas. Again it's dependent on height and the usual suspects will probably see some snow. Marginal and pish for the rest of us.

Felt mild in the sunshine here this afternoon. Temps peaked at 9.8C. I just noticed that  despite all the recent signs  of Spring (grass started growing very early and saw a large bumble bee yesterday) I have not actually recorded a double figure temperature since the 1st of Feb.

I've put the snaw shovel back in the shed after the anti-climax of the other week, now I see the daft thread is on about possible easterly set-up well it better hurry up and it'll have to be a bitter wind for any snaw to stick around at this time of year...again all too late in the season.

We are rapidly heading towards April and that's the start of summer for me so all this pishy cauld wetness can bugger off...its time for some warmth noo.

It reached 11.8c at Leuchars yesterday - I think there have been 4 or 5 10c or greater days in the last week. Amazing the difference a few miles makes!

Currently 8c/5c in a brisk WSWly wind.
