Warm and very pleasant in the afternoon sun, 24c recorded at Leuchars. It’s been a much better week locally. Best since May.

Been a week (including today) of temps 20C plus each day, high today here was 25C ☀️

Sunny intervals  here too with a max of 22.7C in the fresh Westerly breeze. One rogue shower made it through in the late afternoon but apart from that dry and warm.

What's not to like.

Max of 24c, light winds, plenty of sunny spells.

Tourists back in force going by the number of caravans and campervans on the A96 today.

Evening all...

Is winter coming already? That's the only explanation for bigsnow rising from his summer hibernation.

One of them was us as after months of largely staring at the same 4 walls, plus garden, we're are in Dornoch for a very welcome change of scenery. A full campsite too, despite only reopening fully again yesterday. Weather is a bit breezy and cloudier than it was in Aberdeenshire when we left though.

Just checking in to see if any early analysis for the coming winter... kind of hoping that we will get a proper throw back winter after all of the madness of 2020 so far.. anyways hope you are well buddy.

Cloudy, damp and cool here today. At least its warm indoors.. 

How has everybody been doing over lockdown? Hope all are well and managed to stay safe.

Weekend looks good for a bit of dry weather may even pop to the beach ⛱

A bit of a persistent breeze in Dornoch today but the early cloud has broken up and it feels warm in the sun. OK out of the sun too, as long as you are also out of the breeze. 

The puppy (at 6 months she has grown and bulked up but still has 'puppy brain' at times) had her first excursion to a beach, which seemed to be a hit with her. She's now lying contentedly outside the motorhome watching the crows.

@Ravelin what pup do you have??

If you'd been hanging around you would know... she's a Fox Red Labrador, just à few days shorts of 6mths old. Picked her up the weekend before lockdown started, from Ayrshire. She's certainly made lockdown easier, given the whole family a focus. 

Daughter took some great pics of her on the beach earlier, I'll grab her laptop later and post one.

@Ravelin you can always rely on a labrador.. we had one that sadly passed 2 years ago. We did look into a different breed last year but our Autistic son couldn't adjust to a smaller dog. We are giving consideration to rehoming an older slower labrador soon as we can.

Meanwhile and on topic.. the current bun came out this afternoon and now the sky is blue and tomorrow is looking good for some warm dry weather.

We were on the boundary between the dull damp weather to the South and the brighter skies to the North. As such dry  with mostly light cloud that broke up later this afternoon. Max of 20.5C so quite pleasant.

Fantastic day with lots of sunshine after the overnight rain and cloud cleared. A high of around 21 or 22C. Weekend also looking very decent although not as warm. It is great to have a spell of westerlies. 😃

How right your are! Not all will agree though. 😁Leuchars now at 77 hours of sun for the month of July which is hardly spectacular but in contrast Loch Glascarnoch just 30 hours, Eskdalemuir 35 and Aviemore 40. Very poor for July!

a odd light shower this afternoon but very reasonable day. The breeze did die down eventually. Looks like more of the same tomorrow. Perfect temperatures too

First opportunity to view the comet around 1am this morning in these parts. Clear skies, binoculars, guide to location using 'the plough/big dipper' and there it was. Am absolutely delighted. Something special about comets.....
