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

Our big wild cherry had virtually no fruit last year as it was hit by heavy winds which stripped it when they were small and green. The year before it was laden. This year it looks like something between. 

No good for eating as the fruits are small and mostly stone. However some big jars, lots of small cherries, some sugar, cheap brandy and a bit of patience and by around Xmas you have some more than acceptable cherry brandy. 

Dornoch has continued to be breezy with broken cloud and not exactly warm, but there's been no rain. The dog got into the sea far enough to be classed as her first swim yesterday, followed by a mad run around the beach with a 5mth old cocker-poo. She's certainly enjoying her holiday.

Anyone else think this has been one of the coolest and most cloudy July's in quite a few years? It'll be interesting to see the stats...

Like yesterday a wasted day of showers and all too brief drier intervals with glimpses of sunshine.

Showers this evening merging into a longer period of heavy rain.

Light winds and a max of 15.9c.

All very forgettable, even the cloudscapes were dull and boring!

never ending dross. 1 day above 20c so far for Glasgow in July, averaging 3hrs of sunshine a day. The average max is 17.2c according to Meteociel, which means we are on course for the coolest average max for the duration of their records (back to 2006)

No prospect of any change. 

Those first 8 weeks of lockdown seem like a distant memory - sunshine, quiet roads, long walks 🥶

It's not a bad day all in all TBH but it's not going to last (rather typically) back to the rubbish tonight

A mixed day here in Aberdeenshire... sunshine and cloud.. no rain or showers as yet but the next few days are not looking to good wet and cool by the looks of it..

Just had a wisdom tooth removed by the lovely dentist in Fraserburgh this morning and the numbness is just starting to wear off...😥😥

Very useable day until 3pm, then the showers arrived once again, heavy and prolonged for a time.

More sunshine today though and temperatures responding, hit the heady heights of 17.1c.

Generally light winds.

The dry spell in the spring has done the blackberries no favours by the looks of things as the crop is looking poor (not many flowers and even fewer setting fruit).

Conversely Clematis have done well with the warm sunny spring coupled with the copious rainfall in the last few weeks.

Tropaeolum speciosum also doing well, finicky thing that it is to grow.

Well, July 2020 can just do one now!

Bloody awful out there, rain and 12c does NOT float my boat for Summer weather!!!

Did I hear right that Braemar was down to -2.2c yesterday morning?  Is that normal?

Guess what? weather still crap ;) can't genuinely figure this out why we've not had a summer. Honestly thought with way we had some sort of heatwave say 2018 and 2019 the summer months have just refused to deliver the goods this year (and models spoiler hint it don't look like getting much better)

27 days now since we had what you could call a good summers day and no prospect of one on the horizon.

Was toying with just booking 4 or 5 days in Spain yesterday as flights were available for £54 return.. Really wish I had because they've gone up 500% because the quarantine was removed 😥

It did look like we we're gonna have quite a sunny day but the reality is there's been no sun at all only saving grace I suppose it's not cold

Back in Aberdeenshire myself and yeah, not a bad day. Mainly sunny with light winds which allowed it to get up above 20C for a couple of hours early afternoon. As @bigsnowsays, thunderstorms in the forecast for tomorrow afternoon, but it keeps changing when. They are always a bit hit or miss anyway.

O god I hope so. Sick of this. Either rain or dull dark cloud day after day with just an hour or two sun.

Morning all,

I’ve been on holiday this last week and the weather has been ‘mixed’ (I’m being kind 😊). Had a couple of nights away up in Glen Clova. Thursday was a decent day and I managed up into the hills, great walk up Broad Cairn and Cairn Bannoch. Back to the dreich this morning in Pittenweem though hoping for some sun later.

Morning all!

Hope everyone is well!

Less said about July here the better! 😄 Had a few decent days in-between the crud - only plus has been having the local beach to myself quite a few times.

Could be a lively afternoon for a few of our North East members once the sunshine starts to break through - very jealous!

SCOTLAND ...

Morning rain may contain some embedded weak elevated convection, and while a few isolated lightning strikes may be possible the risk is considered fairly low. Increasing insolation by the afternoon will likely yield 300-600 J/kg CAPE, primarily Aberdeenshire and to a lesser-extent Angus and Caithness. A few scattered heavy showers are possible here, with the risk of a few lightning strikes (especially Aberdeenshire). The slack surface pattern and associated low-level convergence vorticity may produce one or two funnel clouds.

WWW.CONVECTIVEWEATHER.CO.UK

Forecasting thunderstorms and severe convective weather across the British Isles and Ireland for up to the next 5 days.

Few thunderstorms/torrential downpours showing up there for the NE! SW Scotland also at risk during late afternoon/early evening. 

Something to keep an eye on at last! Convective weather today and proper warmth/heat next weekend!

Have a good weekend everyone.
