Over here today a degree cooler than yesterday with a fresh Easterly breeze though still very pleasant with a top temp of 22.1C. Most storms forecast to be further West than here again tomorrow but I wouldn't rule one out completely for us later in the day.

When I drove over to St Andrews late this afternoon I could see the haar rolling into the Tay estuary. Clearly didn’t make it as far as you though! 
As expected around 6c cooler here this afternoon with the onshore breeze keeping temperatures around 17c under mostly sunny skies.

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

Yes. Out for a walk earlier this evening and could see it creeping up the river and patches over towards the East of the city. Can still see a lot of cloud to my Southeast now and patchy bits blowing through here. A bit warmer than expected for me here today but with a refreshing breeze.

Lightning visible in the distance to the south/west from Cambuslang. Clouds lighting up orange/white. Can't hear any thunder.? from that cell over s/w scotland.

Roasty Toasty.

Max of 26.2c under clear blue skies (albeit sunshine a bit hazy at times).  Bit breezy in the afternoon but it just made things even more pleasant.

Dead calm now outside.

Only downside is the hayfever has been brutal the last couple of days.  Kids still find it hilarious that Vaseline up and around the nose helps a lot.

A little storm has just popped up to the west of Arran. Possibly that.

Not sure, it was more south than west, Unfortunately I can't get a decent view downstairs and as someones gone to bed can't look out the bedroom window upstairs. I found the little cell on the radar just west of Arran. Where did that come from ?

Saw this posted on Western Isles weather taken from just West of Stornoway. As an aside I caught my first ever trout on that loch many many years ago.

I can see the same from here, looks like South West so probably the developing cells towards arran. Could be some high level stuff from the main band I guess tho! 

Seething should be with @Mr Frost soon I reckon.

Seems to be dieing down a bit now with a cool breeze , haven't seen any lightning for 5 or 10 mins. 

Stuff to the south is a bit of a mess but the band is slowly moving north east so I guess a let's see what happens! 

 

@Stormeh must be under the other one at Ardrossan at the moment.

Too far to my West but saw on social media it was some show, a couple photos from Kirkcudbright:
