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

Heavy rain shower over Banchory, did hear a couple of rumbles of thunder around 20 minutes ago.

Welcome! Just heard further thunder here, so the forecast was certainly correct for NE Scotland! (And another...)

Plenty of heavy showers here but nothing thundery. Might have heard some in the distance, but then again it could just have been a tractor with a rumbly trailer. 

Feels warm, was up to 20c earlier and still 28C even now despite a lot of cloud and occasional rain.

Got woke up by very heavy rain at 7 this morning (I say that loosely as I was struggling to sleep last night anyway) but when that rain eventually did clear through not been a bad day. Not clear skies by any stretch of the imagination but good enough. Quite warm too

Had a peak at the weather radar. Still plenty red around us, I think there is another line out to our west. Is quieter at present though, rain and thunder have died down. Most recent lightning plotted appears to be almost an hour ago so maybe the electrical activity is dying out for the day. Not necessarily the rain though!

Heavy rain early doors but bright intervals since. Felt warm with a max of 19.8C. My daughter walked up from Arbroath to Auchmithie in the afternoon and said that it felt warmer further East.

Thank you for the welcome everyone 🙂

Torrential rain clearing to something slightly lighter now, I'd imagine the roads are flooded if the car park outside my house is anything to go by! Rumble of thunder heard in the distance, and it's still feeling very sticky however it hasn't stopped some teenagers having a party in the next street 🤣

A rather changeable day overall. 6.1mm of rain, half of which probably came in one downpour early afternoon, after which we managed a dry walk with the dog. 

A fantastic sunset, which as normal the camera just didn't do justice to.

Not a bad day in Inverness, car thermometer reading 19c and just one sharp shower but alas sunshine at a premium.

Quite a lot of tourists about as well.

Drive back on the A96 entertaining as ever (what is it with the boy racers that seem to inhabit the stretch from Fochabers to Huntly every Saturday evening).

From Insch onwards you could see there had been some torrential rain earlier with debris and soil on the road due to field runoff (Fubar News on Facebook has some good photos of flooding etc around Inverurie in the afternoon).

Highlight of the day though was the sunset noted above.  One of the most bizarre I have seen in a long time.

Looking west it's all very conventional....

But over towards the east, it looked like someone has set the sky on fire, quite stunning...
