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

Thunder and lightning seem to have stopped abruptly and looks to be dieing off on radar! Good while it lasted😀

Yes just heavy rain here in East Kilbride now. My 9 year old son text me from home saying he saw some lightning and heard loud thunder. He was very excited 😄

The storm did produce a few flashes and bangs which was a nice way to end a day in the garden. Coming in for thunder & lightning is much better than just plain rain.️🌧

My wife has been DJing via Spotify with storm & rain songs which has been entertaining. Might ask her to compile it on a playlist and send it to you for those on Spotify. 

First photo is the birds waiting for us to depart the garden so they can access the feeders. Last photo is of the storm clearing. It looks like the lights have been turned back on here.

Lightning and thunder just beginning again! Just to the east of here this time. 

Same here. Got much darker in the last 5 minutes.

Blackened here again too starting to team down and looking at the radar could be interesting

Marie likes the challenge of being thrown a subject and forming a playlist. The most random one was 'Animal Husbandry'. It was delivered.

Well we got to the beach and it was packed, no social distancing going on at all, so we turned around and came back and went to the park then pub instead. Weather has been nice. Not overly hot and always that wind taking the edge off of the temperature. Tomorrow looks like a wash out and no real sign of any hot weather in the next few weeks. Will soon be turning my thoughts to the coming Autumn and then Winter when the hunt for the white gold starts.

Very moody skies at sunset with thunderstorm just to  the south of us over the Southern Cairngorms.002.thumb.JPG.1738a3c1dfc3b1f6c7db687b7da5d41c.JPG006.thumb.JPG.a851d021b8c11d4495132a2c7801ab30.JPG

Whole system sliding north and east with the clearence to the NW visible. 003.thumb.JPG.b69951ef1637f62eff0cd139c180b201.JPG

We may just miss it and with a field of hay lying which would not have been ready today as still green in bits I am back to gambling on this missing us and getting a second dry day tomorrow. 

Managed to capture around fifteen swifts screaming round the house in one photo a real sound of high summer especially with thundery looking cloud in the shot.007.thumb.JPG.3a9107e1f6e5b3ae0568de701747f2e3.JPG

One flash and bang around midnight I think. Now up and drinking tea because the cat was crashing around yowling, thought it must be a mouse or something  serious by the sound of the drama. Got up, and oor fearless hunter was chasing a moth. Didn't catch it.

Keep the faith mate!

Warmth returns up there soon - especially over in the Moray area through this Wednesday to Friday/Saturday at least.
Charts look decent for low to mid twenties.

I also noticed you are now only 70 meters above sea level!? Risky one for Winter...😄 I thought you always made an effort to position yourself up between 100/150 meters? 😀

You need those @Northern Strath @Ravelin @shuggee (few others) heights nowadays.

Edit: Great clip above @NUT - can see that strike must have been quite close as you got a fright at the very end. 😂

@Mr Frost sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do. And did still manage to find the highest part of the area and exposed to the wind. but a newly refurbished steading so no trouble with heating it during winter months. Still planning for the ultimate move one day 300m asl in the Highlands.. 

And in weather news over night rain has cleared and some sunshine has developed but looks only temporary as more rain incoming for this afternoon. At least the footie is back on and FA Cup final later..

Thanks for sharing that playlist, some decent tracks on there. Fell asleep listening to it last night and will continue listening today.

Woke this morning to blue skies when I let the dogs out at 8am though it had obviously stopped raining not long before.  Fairly decent temperature on my window thermometer showing 19c but it's clouded over again and getting duller by the minute and according to the radar, a shower of rain is on the way. Glad I got the grass cut last night!

The models are looking even more promising this morning for a dry, warmer and brighter period from around Wednesday onwards 🙂
