Scotland /Alba weather discussion 2020


Recommended Posts

@Mr Frost @Hawesy looking through the charts possibly some positive signs over the next few days a bit intriguing too, the cloud charts show breaks and sunshine for us haar plagued Fifers and the haar charts don’t show it reappearing certainly over the next few days but the wind charts still show the easterly but I then noticed it actually ramps up the winds in the Firth of Forth so I’m thinking that’s what gets rid of the haar - lower winds are what fog and haar feeds off I believe? ? 656ECC43-3CF4-4330-9841-3AADAD0AD9C6.thumb.gif.0fe7caac2543803ab0bad4afe0c45b99.gif45542BAC-AD1D-4B6E-996A-7FEE5F6375F9.thumb.gif.988132253abe05516b9cff2e4e611c27.gif37385660-07A3-4550-AEC6-70618301B8C7.thumb.png.c7443b6c323782c4cd2de12e3c7c6aee.png1755ADD6-D2D7-4220-AA7B-53D1C2554D67.thumb.png.1f82f7eef6b9360725f71efe22fb3461.png

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

The first heavy showers have formed in the same area as the last few days, just south east of Girvan - the new storm capital of Scotland!

You never know it's just a forecast and you're close enough. It's brightening up here too now which is only a good thing for storms ?

I hope someone gets hit with a storm if they want it, nowt happening at this end of the country though. We might see some sun tomorrow which would be great although it hasn't been as bad here as it has been for the real coasties.

 

At least all the rain has regreened the whole place since the 2nd, although the ground is still hard:

Work finished at 14:00 when I looked out the window...?

Just down at the Bay - looking good West to East - current temperature 20C.

Heading up an exposed 100 meters hill now for a better view - could be a good day ahead for many of us!

Great stuff down there at the moment!

Frequent lightning near work (Newton Stewart) with loud thunder getting ever louder. Hailstones in the mix too. 20c

When I left my house about 13:40 was 23.4c, bright and very muggy.

@Stormeh That’s us cursed now - Met Office warning, thunderstorm symbol and I’m sure I was getting the middle finger from this...?

All joking aside - lots of towers have been going up and then straight back down again!

Last half hour has started to look more promising though.

21C now - perfect sunbathing weather while watching the sky/radar!

Warmer and drier here compared with the last couple of days. Cloud much higher and thinner too with just a hint of blue sky to the North. 16.9C.

The sun has finally managed to put in an appearance here today. At this time of year for us though, after days of gloom that usually means only one thing...time to play hunt the swarm.

Can you spot it? Oh and that is our youngest son who decided that rather than do school work it would be preferable to be surrounded by thousands of bees. Luckily swarms don't tend to be too angry, even when you aggravate them by shaking the branch they are clinging to, to try to get them into a sack on a long pole..

Struggling? Here's a closer view..

Thanks @Kirkcaldy Weather some hopeful news on the haar front. ? I think increasing winds do help and also some lower dew points by the looks of things.

Still grey here although the haar has lifted a bit and it’s a little warmer that yesterday (15c).

Lots of towering cumulus just to the south of Glasgow so wouldn't be surprised to see a storm form close to here soon. I'm avoiding hay-fever so not going out for a better view!

The more active part is on the east side of it and barely moving.

 

I can see the cell going up near Kilbirnie, that may have given the earlier rumble, otherwise is must have been elevated.

Once again it's groundhog day - calm and waves of Haar......???

 

Well that is this evening and first thing in the morning.

In between we saw this - hurrah!

Max temperature of 21c and quite a strong SE wind for a time in the early afternoon otherwise the calm conditions mentioned earlier.

I blame the Met Office! ??

At least it was a convective day! ? (Just not overhead)

Sunset was decent.

This sums it up.,.

Convective weather has a slight risk tomorrow for the usual areas.

Someone might get a thunderstorm during the early hours - more likely now though is drizzle/rain! 

Let’s see what tomorrow brings! ?
