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

Yeah it was weird, can't say I've ever experienced that. There was cloud below us and above us, with that eerie yellow light, and then pinkish haar came rolling up the hill accompanied by rain, lightning and thunder. Really odd. Couldn't take my eyes off it!

The storm was off to the west over Kinross, but it certainly looked the part from here ?

Yes, I sent it in yesterday morning ? 

I also shared it on Facebook and there is over 4.6k likes and hundreds of comments ?

That burst of rain came over us but as usual seemed to explode as it moved away from here. Been quite a wet day but not like yesterday morning

Quite a few rumbles to my South right now and getting closer. Must be somewhere over Fife at present? Dark skies to the South though rain has eased.

edit. Spoke too soon. The heavens have just opened and the low black cloud is here nowalong with thunder but haven't seen any lightning yet through the gloom.

I was on a zoom call but a few lightning strikes and loud rumbles of thunder here in Pittenweem. Rain was heavy for a while too, now clearing away northwards.

Some sheet lightning to my North West now so it has maybe passed here too now.

Edit. Looking back not too much activity here but the two of the individual green strikes were quite close to me.

I forgot to add this pic from the storm the other night. I didn’t realise at the time that some power cables were getting in the shot ?

The heat's defo gone goodbye. Breezy and had a fair amount of rain. What a complete contrast from wednesday and thursday. Looks like a bit of a meh week. Nothing really exciting to look at weatherwise (and no 31 degrees this week whatsoever) ;)

Just back from a walk and it feels more like early October out there than late June. Cool and windy with light rain on and off. As @NUT says a pretty uninspiring week coming up by the looks of things. Unfortunate as I’m on holiday! I guess I’ll be painting the hall after all. ?

Fine wet day for neeps grass and crops.and made a late night last night worthwhile getting some hay

This evening a bit of clearance with some vivid cloud and sky colours. I wonder if all these great cloudscapes , sunsets and colours are the result of a less polluted atmosphere this spring/early summer.  Currently 15c

Not a great day but managed a cycle up the Pentlands. Managed to capture this before it disappeared during a brief shower!

Mostly cloudy here with just a few showers. Cooler with max of 15.2C. Windy though, especially pm with restrictions on the road bridge.
