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

    Windy yes but maybe not as bad as you'd expect? The rain thankfully nowhere near as bad as friday/saturday's but still wet

    Horrendus late afternoon here with some really violent gusts.   2 inch diameter branches being snapped off trees. Could hardly open  steading or tractor cab doors and steading roof and slates being sucked up and then crashing down . Was going out but feel us and the car would be better at home till wind dies  down.

    Still very windy, overcast, dry and 6c

    And you just know there will be some lunatics needing rescued from the Scottish hills over the next few days.

    Anyone on Cairngorm summit?

    Those are some intense looking snow streamers being shown for the Great Glen, cant recall seeing examples of a streamer in that area before?  anim_hkl3.thumb.gif.9167f8fb13782cf1787448fac127bb15.gif nmm_uk1-45-36-3.thumb.png.7935be326eff3b12c2386e2767ab8211.png

    I had to get the coal in, and thought a train was coming - but it was the wind, roaring. Never heard it that loud before . Usualy roars through the pines up the hill but this was right beside the houses here. Rain battering the windows. I've shut the blinds and curtains which I never ever do.

    It's a southerly, might explain the difference in effect?

    Stormy to say the least with the rain almost horizontal.  Also a 2 minute powercut which is unusual for here.

    Surrealy a skein of geese just went over the house!

    Forecast is for the winds to ease back around 9pm but staying windy up here for the next few days.

    Here is the Braighe road in Lewis a couple of hours ago. Picture by Roderick Maclean. I take it that it was closed.

    Here we have missed the worst of the wind and there was only a short burst of heavier rain. Only high sided vehicles are not allowed on the bridge so no gusts over 60mph possibly as it is much less exposed than with a westerly.

    Was a pretty hairy commute both this morning and this afternoon. Set off for Edinburgh at the ridiculously early hour of 6.30, found some black ice and drove sideways round a roundabout. No other cars in sight luckily. I was quite surprised though. This evening had a wet and windy return along the M9, not the worst trip ever but not masses of fun either.

    Windy enough as the wife and I unintentionally coordinated our arrival home at 4:30pm for us to have to 'rescue' the bins from the bottom of the driveway and stick them in the garage. First time we've had to do that in this house, but the wind was whistling up the road at just the right angle that they had no shelter or support. 

    Rain not too heavy, but occasionally we'll hear it rattling off the windows at the front of the house. Heavy enough though to regret not having filled up the wood basket yesterday rather than having to pay a visit to the wood store tonight. 

    GFS 6Z and 12Z both looking much more promising at the end, but that's still a VERY long way out so better not get excited.

    I will give Storm Brendan 6 out of 10 for effort!

    This is why I love the weather! 

    Ye can stick yer three days of lowland snowfall per Winter up yer backsides! ?

    I love watching the weather too, but I also like trying to understand the causes of weather? A difficult subject for me.

    Hairy drive home for me too. 50mph max on the A roads. Then coming down the hill after Mountain Cross +BANG+, something was catapulted onto the car roof from the roadside trees. Haven't been out with torch to check her over yet - but couldn't see anything immediately. Fingers crossed.....

    Wow you're brave to be out on your bike in this! I wimped out due to the frozen slush on the back roads at home yesterday which didn't help my mood... Would like some cycling weather soon please.
