Recommended Posts

Ended up with some colourful lenticular clouds last night.

Third thunderstorm warning this Summer from the Met Office. (Previously two gave me about three minutes of drizzle overhead ?)

Should kick off mid/late afternoon - Central/North West Scotland most at risk it seems!

Hopefully a few of us see a bit of action!

All the best everyone!

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

@Mr Frost looks like u are well positioned today all the short range models I have looked at take the heaviest cell(s) over you so fingers crossed. The warning just misses here as is often the case these days, doesn’t really bother me tbh ? not sure I will get anything here maybe be able to see something in the distance ?‍♂️ADB377C5-9F65-46B7-B2FC-75C1C0E745AC.thumb.gif.80fbd1f9d72620256f177569a7238bed.gif

Showers starting to form now with some dark bases to my south. I'm heading to Ayrshire soon so you can guarantee what will happen with the storms.... ?

Threatening looking skies on the way to work with big droplets of rain falling as arrived in the work car park. If things kick off then I will be taking my break outside in my car ?

Better day than anticipated here, a very pleasant 21c with occasional bouts of hot sunshine. Muggy (as always!) 

I’m driving up to SE Glasgow later so look well positioned for any storms that may come in. 
Nothing in Dumfries as yet but can see on the radar the heavy stuff is just across the Solway...

Just sitting on top of the hill at the moment - Met Office have stuck the thunderstorm symbol on for 18:00...any chance I had is now gone! ?

The developing shower just west of Duns:

Looks like this:

I could see the top of this when I was coming home from Berwick and it is an absolute beast, thousands of feet high and really wide too.

Starting to intensify a bit now with a few stronger cells popping up. Most are East of the M74 or North of the central belt so far..

You're right enough, NUT::oldgood:

My home town (Milton Keynes) was designed according to the 'Cumbernauld model', but being only 10-years' old, when shown the proposed plans, I didn't really 'get it'... But, when I visited the afore-mentioned locality (around 2000) I suddenly understood: roundabouts, roundabouts and even more bloody roundabouts...?

But the accent on the road-signs is clearly different!???????

One day! ?

Ah well - only mid June so plenty of time for some of us to experience our first thunderstorm of Summer 2020! Hopefully the next risk day will be the one!

Tomorrow will be a lovely day to enjoy the Summer solstice for many of us - high teens/low twenties and plenty of sunshine.

Have a good weekend everyone! ?

Yeah they can stick that easterly breeze where the sun doesn't shine...in fact the sun wasn't shining with the easterly breeze!

We hit 20.4C at 5pm after a bit of a gash spell around lunchtime with quite a bit of cloud.

Next week looks toasty at times, for some of us:
